Symptoms of neck pain will depend on the underlying cause of the neck pain you are experiencing. Aside from neck pain, a patient might also experience these additional symptoms:

  • Muscle stiffness
  • Tingling in the neck and upper back & shoulders
  • Burning
  • Decrease or loss of sensation
  • Dull aching
  • Restricted range of motion

If you have developed an injury like whiplash, it is common to experience PTSD symptoms such as sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, and irritability in addition to pain and stiffness.
