    Post Head trauma - neck pain

    A couple of nights ago I fell backwards down a flight of stairs, I hit the back of my head very hard on tiles floor, although the pain was at about a 7 I could still stand up and carry on.
    I've woken up today unable to sit up or move my neck, it's extremely tender and swollen along side my wind pipe.
    Could this be related to the trauma 2 days prior ?

    Absolutely! You have whiplash. If you can't get in to see a doctor today, you need to at least alternate ice and heat therapy. You may need massage therapy but I would want to check with a doctor first to make sure you don't have a cracked vertebrae, etc. first.
