    Question Possible neck injury from Leg press

    About 2 weeks ago today, I was finishing the last set of leg press when on the last rep, I felt an intense pain erupting out of the back of my neck, possibly from the cerebrum. I don't know if I leaned my head forward before I released the weight or what, but I was in considerable pain for the next 5+ minutes. I was able to finish the rest of leg day without agitating it any more, but to this day I still but random spurts of pain in that same area every day or so. Not as painful as that first occurrence, but still noticeable & in my opinion concerning. Any hypotheses on what could've happened? I can't see a doctor immediately, if you were going to ask.

    Probably unrelated. I sometimes get neck issues. It usualy comes from turning my head at a quick pace. As long as the pain does not linger, don't worry too much.
