You may be suffering with neck pain and wondering if all neck pain is the same. It’s not.

Neck pain can be accompanied by a long list of other ailments. The collection of symptoms provides an idea as to why you have neck pain. Below is a list of some of the common symptoms that are commonly experienced with neck pain:

  • Headache – This may take place because the meningeal lining of the brain has been irritated or due to trigger points within the muscles that end up referring pain in the head. Impinged nerves in the neck can also cause cervicogenic headache.
  • Stiffness – Stiffness shows that the muscles are preventing movement so that no extra damage will occur to the underlying structures of the cervical spine.
  • Poor range of motion – The inability to rotate your head to the left or right or to your shoulder is one of the causes of neck pain. This symptom suggests that there is scar tissue or misaligned vertebrae in your neck.
  • Eye pain or vision changes – This symptom implies that injury to your neck is more than just muscle strain or a sprain.
  • Fatigue – Low energy is another symptom that can indicate more serious health problems if it's combined with neck pain.
