1 . 160
The pain tends to come and go with flare-ups from time to time. You may have a flare-up of pain after unaccustomed use of your neck, or if you sprain a neck muscle or ligament
2 . 161
However, a flare-up often develops for no apparent reason. Some people develop chronic (persistent) pain
3 . 162
Some neck stiffness, particularly after a night`s rest
4 . 163
Headaches may occur. The headaches often start at the back of the head just above the neck and travel over the top to the forehead
5 . 164
You may develop "pins and needles" in part of an arm or hand. This symptom is caused by irritation of a spinal nerve as it leaves the bony (vertebral) area. However, do tell a doctor if loss of feeling (numbness) or weakness develops in a part of a hand or arm. These symptoms suggest more pressure on a nerve. This is called a “cervical radiculopathy”.
6 . 157
Pain in the neck
7 . 158
This may spread to the shoulders and base of the skull. Movement of the neck may make the pain worse
8 . 159
The pain sometimes spreads down an arm to a hand or fingers. This is caused by irritation of a nerve which goes to the arm from the spinal cord in the neck
9 . 165
More rarely, clumsiness of a hand, problems with walking, or problems with bladder function occur when pressure from a worn bone (vertebra) or disc damages the spinal cord. This is called “cervical myelopathy”.
