Have you tried getting a massage? I, often, get tight in my shoulder area and, once that it tight, other parts get tight. Have you applied heat to your neck?

Tried heat and massage helps a little but my problem still persists I then worry even more !

I doubt it's anything to worry about. Those types of symptoms can be explained by many things including stress/anxiety. If you think there may be something going on with your spine I encourage you to make an appointment with a spine specialist for evaluation.I don't know how referrals and such work in the uk but I would think after 18 months of symptoms you'd be able to get un.

Good luck!

Hi that's what I've been thinking so I think I will have to go back and see what they think ! It's just that it's been so long without getting any answers I've almost given up ! Thanks for your reply !
