neck pain on the 3rd Week


I have been a smoker for roughly 10 years and is currently on my 20th day of quitting and with that comes a throbbing pain in my neck and a little bit on my shoulder which has been getting me worried for quite some time now.

Saw a lot of thr same scenario over a bunch of different websites but there wasn't seem to be any conclusion.

I hope to hear from anyone soon.

Thanks a lot

Welcome to our community cider1215 , congratulations on 20 days smoke free, that's great 🚭🤗

Are you going cold turkey? Is the pain around your throat or back of neck and shoulder blades? If so, it could be your lungs clearing out, repairing and recovering. It would be best to head to your doctor for piece of mind....

Can't add much more to Roisin's reply, if back of neck and shoulder blades, likely to be your lungs repairing but if worried, get checked out by your doctor :)
