You should go back to the ER.

You need an MRI of the cervical spine.

You can have a disc out of place, which can become a surgical emergency if not addressed with the correct manual medicine program.

Any chest pain needs immediate EKG and evaluation.

Also a chest x ray to make sure blood vessels were not damaged.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

I had EKG no problem, MRI done neck area , said 5&6 disc showing hernia, but because of my front side of neck and chest back pain, Dr wants to do 2nd MRI lower than neck.
But today I have swelling really bad pressure from neck to face and swelling neck's vain line showed up, I should wait DR visit or should go ER?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
