Hi and welcome to careproper.com
It seems just your are having a rheumatic activity flare up..I recommend seeing your rheumatologist for drug revision ..
Cervical spines xray ..avoiding cold weather.. And getting rest and stress release techniques..
Apply an ice pack to inflamed joints to help ease swelling. Cold can also help to numb pain and relax muscle spasms.
If you’re experiencing tight, aching muscles, a relaxing warm bath or hot shower can soothe them. You can also apply a hot towel, a heating pad, or other hot pack to help relax tense muscles and relieve pain and stiffness.
This is caused by the rheumatoid activity.
you have developed degenerative changes in your neck.
See your doctor and an xray will show what is going on.
