It sounds like you have a serious inflammation of the tendons in your neck. You should alternate hot and cold compresses and avoid anything that will cause more inflammation.

Thank you...are there any dietary guidelines to foods that can improve or worsen the inflammation ?

I have had an MRI. The neck vertebrae are intact but muscularly compromised.
I have a vague memory of reading that chronic inflammation can be aided by diet.

Lobsang P do you want this topic moved into a different forum? As has been often repeated:

Thank you for your cooperation.
