I have pain in my neck and pressure in the neck at the base…

Customer Question
I have pain...

I have pain in my neck and pressure in the neck at the base of the skull. I also feel chemically off in my head. I had a brain MRI done as well as a neck MRI done in February and they said they are all clear. I had a brain Ct the end of march and was told it was clear as well. What could be causingthis?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

I have been dealing with it off and on since January. No numbness and tingling

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of
