There are times during the day when the back of my lower neck feels like it is burning or hot. It is not hot to the touch and isn't red. There is no pain and I don't have any other simptoms. It doesn't matter what the room temperature is. It could be cold or warm. It doesn't hurt to touch it or move it.
The burning sensation could be due to irritation of nerve endings. Poor posture for long periods of time can be the cause. This can be combated by: 1. changing your posture 2. applying heat 3. having a massage.
