Hello. Thank you for contacting our service.
Unfortunately, it is currently impossible to diagnose what is wrong with her based on her symptoms alone. If she has recently fallen from a height and has bruises on her shoulder or neck, this could also be the cause. But since the incident she fell from a height for is not recent, I don't think that's the cause of the issue now. However, it may be that what was causing the problem at the time is now causing the pain. I recommend that you visit a veterinary clinic for an accurate diagnosis. It's because it's difficult to tell how sick she is right now and where and what problems have arisen based on text alone. A veterinarian at the hospital needs to examine her body. thank you.
