Hi there.. Neck and shoulder pain may be due to nerve root compression in cervical spine.. many causes like poor posture, trauma, degenerative diseases( cervical spondylosis, cervical disc prolapse), tumors, muscle strain, joint and bone abnormalities. Please get mri done soon. Do regular neck and shoulder exercises, don't use pillow while sleeping or use soft pillow. Keep changing postures often. Don't lift any heavy objects over head, neck or shoulder as that wil put more pressure over your neck and shoulder muscles and increase your pain. Hot fomentation, gels with diclofenac for local application and tablet aceclofenac 100mg twice daily. Hope this helps you. Please visit neurosurgeon/spine surgeon once
