Neck Pain | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

When someone complains of neck pain, the healthcare provider will need more information. Questions may be asked related to:

  • when the pain started
  • the exact location of the pain, such as whether it is on one or both sides of the neck, or whether the pain goes anywhere else outside the neck
  • whether there has been any injury or trauma to the neck area
  • whether there is any family history of neck pain
  • whether the neck pain is constant or comes and goes
  • what medications, herbs, or illegal drugs a person takes, if any
  • what other medical conditions a person has, if any
  • if anything makes the neck pain worse or better, such as turning the head to one side or aspirin
  • any other symptoms, such as arthritis, fever, weight loss, or weakness in the arms
