Neck pain or stiffness


Q: Hi Doctor,

Thanks for reading my mail,I'm Ravi, 24 year old bachelor. I'm having a stiff neck which is causing me severe pain and that is exactly at the base of my skull at right side of my neck(I cant pinpoint where that pain originates),but the pain is unbearable and this is not my first time.It happened for couple of times in recent past and it will last for 1 or 2 days while I consume some painkiller tablets.I believe it is because I had masturbated and even during the last two times was also because of that.I've masturbated yesterday after two weeks to know whether the cause of pain is due to that and i confirmed that it is totally because of that.Today morning when i woke up with severe pain in the same area.I'd gooogled to find out many people have the same issue and there is no solution to it.If i'm not masturbating this pain is not showing up and I'm afraid coz of this I can't indulge in any sexual relationship.Wondering is there any solution or any research or is it just my stupidity to believe in this.
