I'm a 31 year old healthy male that exercises regularly with a clean diet (lots of fruits veggies and not much junk food). 2 months ago i woke up with a neck pain that I thought was just from sleeping wrong. I continued to exercise that day and the day after until I realized that the pain isn't going away. So I took a few days break and the pain seemed to get somewhat better but still there so I exercised again, doing cardio and doing heavy weights thinking well I could just push past the pain. After that I felt major pain in my neck so I stopped for a week and saw a chiro. I have pain in my neck thats centralized in one spot, around C-3 and C-4 of the spine. Well the chiro helped at first and once i felt slightly better again, I did light cardio and small weights and thats when it hit the fan. My neck pain got so bad that I couldn't sleep for a few days because of all the nerve pain in my chest, arms and elbows. I saw a doctor, they told me it was just a common sprain and gave me some anti inflammatory medicine.
It's almost been 3 months now and it never heals past a certain point. What could be wrong? I've already stopped all physical activity for 2 weeks, but it never seems to heal past this certain point.
