At the time of writing, my question here is on the verge of being closed:
This is exactly the kind of thing I was worried about when I wrote this meta post:
Should we try to reword "personalized" questions instead of closing?
This question is, IMHO, not off-topic. Yes, maybe if the neck pain continues over a prolonged period of time, you should see your doctor. However, there are many other less serious causes of neck pain that could be given as answers to this question, and many ways to treat it yourself.
As it happens, the pain has mostly subsided today so seeing my doctor would've been a total waste of time. This question is not individualized enough to justify closing or even voting down. At least it could've been edited to remove whatever people perceived as being "too personalized", although frankly I don't see much in there that needs editing.
Could we please get something into the FAQ that allows this type of question?
