He put me on Celebrex (anti-inflammatory for my neck and gave me Zoloft and Xanax for the anxiety.

Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! In all probability this is neck stiffness due to wrong sleeping posture. Other than that it can be occipital neuralgia which results from compression of higher cervical vertebral nerves. It can also be due to an inflamed carotid artery or jugular vein. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without examining. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper investigations and referral. Hope this helps. Take care!

If your neck MRI is clear then the pain could be referred to the neck due to spinal problems of the upper back, or it could be due to tight neck muscles, or due to stress and anxiety or due to clots in the carotid artery. Hence you can get a MRI of the upper back spine and a dopplar study of the carotids. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Meanwhile use a hard bed to sleep. Avoid a pillow.

Dear all am getting neck pain last one week.. am age of 28 and am software professional..
I am a 39-year-old female, and I have been having terrible left anterior neck pain for about 1 month. The pain seems to be close to my carotid artery and runs along the trachea. My left jaw and ear also hurt. I have been to an internal medicine and ENT doctor, and I have had an MRI and CT scan of my neck, and I was told that everything appears normal. The ENT doctor said my lymph nodes are swollen, but the MRI was normal. My thyroid is not swollen and TSH and free T4 levels are fine.
As for chest pain, a dull ache usually directly behind the sternum(breast-bone) which radiates or travels down the left arm and also up the neck and jaw with sweating,nausea,pain between the shoulder blades being symptoms of a heart-attack(AMI). If you have these symptoms- go to the emergency room.
I immediately stopped and was in pain and have been in pain for the rest of the day. The pain started and increased until I was unable to move my neck very much beyond looking straight ahead and turning it to the right about 75 degrees. I have been unable to move it beyond about a 5 degree turn to the left without shooting pain on the right hand side of my neck concentrated in two local regions which I'll describe below.
For insight, the coronary spasm contracts the muscles in the wall of an artery in the heart making the artery constrict. When the artery constricts, blood flow through the artery is either stopped or slowed. When this occurs, the heart does not get enough blood. The symptoms would occur during the intermittent spasms and that would include chest pain described as a feeling of tightness, pressure, heaviness, squeezing, or burning.
I seem to only feel neck pain in the right side and only when laying down on my right side and only when swallowing. Have seen a ENT and was told throat looked fine. I am thinking it could be an artery.
