tightness in front of neck

Posted by janmcdub @janmcdub, Feb 3, 2017

I get a tightness in the front of my neck when I exercise. It’s a little on the intermittent side. Not sure if I should be concerned.

@janmcdub Thanks for your posting and for joining Mayo Connect! We are glad that you are part of our online patient support group. As a new member to our group, we would enjoy getting to know you better. As you are comfortable, please feel free to share more about yourself and about how long this symptom has been occurring. As to that symptom of tightness in the front of your neck when you exercise, I would encourage you to call your doctor right away to discuss. It might be something very simple, but the fact that it occurs during exercise could indicate a cardiac problem. It’s best to get it checked out as soon as possible. Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Teresa
