Training with pain in neck/head.
Im not sure what I did to cause this but I properly noticed it about 5 days ago when I was skipping, and I started to push it abit more which in turn tensed up my shoulders etc more. then I just felt a pain at the top right corner of my neck, where it meets the bottom of my skull. its like a sharp throbbing pain that hurts all up the same side of my head up and over the ear and towards my eye ( it sometimes makes me close my eyes ).
Im thinking I may have torn a muscle or have a trapped nerve or something. I have just gone back in the gym and It seems to come back when I tense/strain my upper body E.g to lift something heavy or punch something hard etc, I had to stop working out as it hurts like hell I dont want to do anymore damage.
In the day when I am in work, my neck is just slightly stiff, only slight pain if I bend/roll my neck around.
Anybody know what this could be straight of the bat?
Do I just rest untill my stiff neck goes and edge back into training?
Im thinking I should go the doctors, but Im not sure if these symptoms are anything serious considering the worst only happens when I train.
BTW I say all this becouse I dont really want to spend time off training unless it has to be done, Im thinking neck pain shouldnt be messed with though

Re: Training with pain in neck/head.
If it hurts don't do it, simple as that. You man not want to take time off training but there's no point if you can't push yourself because it hurts to do so.
Take a week off and see how it feels after that.
