Hi folks

I'm 43. for the past six months i have had upper back and neck tightness. It causes discomfort and odd sensations in head. Can anyone help ?

I'm glad to be here!

Welcome to the forum.

Because it's been 6 months and you still have it, I'd suggest you visit your doctor (MD, not chiropractor) to see what they say. They will likely prescribe you muscle relaxers and possibly a pain reliever, and may prescribe physical therapy which would likely be very helpful for you.
