Neck pain while lifting
Hi,

The past two days that I have gone to the gym, when I have begun lifting (arm curls, chest press, etc.) I have experienced a strong pain shooting through my neck and head. The pain is overwhelming (so I stop lifting) and then subsides within a minute. My neck feels fine and normal during the day until I do some sort of strenuous activity (activity which I suppose tightens the neck muscles, as ab-workout does not cause this). Is this likely a temporary problem and will it heal on its own?
Thank you!

Sincerely,
     Chris

Hi,

Pain in the neck while exercising indicates a nerve compression or cervical spondylitis.
Please get an X ray of your neck to make the diagnosis.
I would suggest you to avoid strenuous activity for some time and apply heat and ice packs to the affected part.
Also make sure you do exercises under supervision of a professional trainer.
