Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. Yes, if the stiffness is due to a bone problem then the X-ray will be able to detect it. However, if the stiffness is due to muscle strain then nothing will be caught on X-ray.
You can apply warm compress, do neck exercises and take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain killer. If this does not help, then please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
