Some people experience only neck pain or just shoulder - while others experience discomfort in both areas simultaneously.
Soreness in the neck and shoulders can lead to difficulty when moving, especially when trying to turn the head to the side or rotate the shoulders. It may also be accompanied by a tension headache, and/or arm pain. A real giveaway for this level of neck and shoulder pain is when you need to turn the entire body as opposed to a simple rotation of the neck, when trying to look sideways.
Symptoms typically last for a few days. Any prolonged neck and shoulder pain should be discussed with a medical professional, as it can be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
