I've had very similar symptoms for over 3 years. Tinnitus, upper back and neck pain, pain under my scapula, numbness on the face, etc. I've also had lower back pain for more than 15 years thatt used to come and go, but now it is more chronic. Doctors did all sorts of tests and imaging of my neck, head and upper back and found nothing significant. They just found a thyroid enlargement that was removed about two years ago but with no change of symptoms.
I went back a wk later because I felt the pain down my neck to my shoulder and chest, they did and EKG was normal, then a carotid ultra sound and the doctor told me that what they found wasn't something to admitt me immediately but to go to a Neuro.

There is a branch of the Trigeminal nerve that loops around the ear such that it can radiate pain into the face, but it doesn't go down into the neck. With your tinnitus, the ear pain is concerning, and needs evaluation. The shoulder pain is something different.

Squeezing, nauseating pressure in the back of the neck/throat, back of the skull and neck pain, tinnitus, dizziness, nausea, numbness into both arms, and blood pressure changes - all resulting from a low impact car accident 2 years ago. I have 2 torn cervical discs and a bulged disc at T4 but otherwise my MRI's and CT's have been unremarkable. No one has been able to figure this out. Its very frustrating. Please let me know if you found any help on your end.
Doctors, For approximately 2 months, I have had constant neck pain, stiffness in my neck, fatigue, on-and-off fevers, headaches, and I am now experiencing tinnitus and seeing floaters. This all started off three weeks after what my family doctor thought was an outbreak of shingles. I had a large raised, red rash on my right hip without pustules for about two weeks; a small scar is still present today.
If the disc is recaptured with the help of a splint, could this stop the tinnitus? (I also suffer from constant neck and shoulder pain since this happened) A few days ago a maxillofacial surgeon has suggested a procedure called arthrocentesis (flushing the joints with a needle), then he would like to do a arthroscopy (to reposition my disc) and finish the procedure with permanent denervation (in another words, he would like to burn my nerves).

I have been having neck and shoulder pain for months, actually years. I was having whole arm numbness, weakness, and pain. MRI reveal a chiari malformation, which I was told was "No big deal" I have since started having a pulse in my head. It started when I stood up fast. Now it is 24/7 - nonstop. There are times it makes me dizzy and nauseated. Other days I'm ok. Can this pulse be from the CM? MRI/MRA of brain were neg other than CM 6 mm.
I have searched several different forums on the net and see the same story which is referred ear pain , neck and or head stiffness and pain and a myriad of other symptoms in each case the patient is seen by his GP given a course of antibiotics the pain never goes away is then sent to an ENT or dentist so forth and so on . So far there hasn't been one positive diagnosis and in some cases dentists have referred patients to oral surgeons for needless wisdom tooth extraction.
For the past year now I have had a lot of weird pain. I have been having pain in my neck that shoots up to the top of my head, the sides of my head, and even to my forehead and around my ear. I have tinnitus(ringing in the ear) when I lay down or when i cover my ears. I was just recently diagnosed with reversed cervical curve from whiplash that had been untreated for almost 2 years! I was also diagnosed with TMJ disorder.
One of the major symptoms that I experienced over the years with HCV was a frequently stiff and painful neck. Sometimes the pain was on the right, sometimes on the left, and during some periods was extremely severe and needed physical therapy in order for me to function. After tx my neck problems have been less frequent and less intense.
The following days I had a bit of pain in my neck and then headaches. The headaches are less but can still occur. I also have a drunkish feeling and unstable feeling that at times gets worse. A couple of days after my problems I went to my GP he took a look in m ear and it was ok and gave me some magnesium pills. I have had problems with earwax buildup for years and have to clean my ears every couple of months. I also have I think TMJ, my jaw always clicks, ever since I had braces.
I don't know if this is related at all, but my eyes burn at times and I have some pain in my shoulder and neck area. I've been living on any over the counter sinus pain medicine that will help and I've also been taking Allegra D, which was prescriped by my family doctor. Oddly enough, for whatever is wrong with me, these do help to ease the discomfort a little. The ENT Dr. suggested I go to a Neurologist, a Rheumatologist and a Dentist?! Gee, how helpful is that!?
I do have a gallstone and have experienced the lower right side pain and nausea plus the shoulder blade pain but this right upper side pain is new to me. I have been terrified of pulmonary embolism or something but I think it must be either gallbladder related or stress related. The only other thing I can think of is that I started a new fitness regime and overdid it a bit for the first time. I ended up a few days later with a terrible lower backache which lasted about a week.
I have a similar thing, but mine comes in muscular flares of the neck and in other areas of my spine and body. Do you have alot of tightness in your neck musles and shoulders? In my case,I wonder if it has anything to do with blood flow being minimized through that area. Migrains usually have to do with some type of venous constriction as well. You may want to check with a neurologist who specialises in migraines. I know migraines can cause all kinds of weird things.
Dizzy, ear pain, neck pain, light bothersom, loud noises, certain smells were and are a big problem. Been thru MRI after MRI. CT Scan after CT Scan. Injection after Injection. Doctor after Doctor, Specialist after Specialist. Addicted to pain mediction, and pretty much supporting the pharmacy's payroll for the last 2 years. Have fallen deeper and deeper in debt. Finally, was told about a Headache clinic in Chicago, Ill.
I feel like I am loosing my mind or my doctor is going to have me commited (NOT really but couldn't hurt) I have a burning aching pain across my upper shoulders, in my neck, down my shoulder blade and thru to the front of my chest. I also have an inflammed shoulder. All of this is on my left side so I to thought the worst. I have had Xrays, EKG about to do MRI this week. No one seems to know what the deal is. I don't see how people can believe someone could make up a pain this bad.
I've been having the same issue, my dr checked me over today and did some poking around my neck and shoulders and informed me that it's originating from my trap muscle on my left side of my shoulder. She told me she used to have the same problem so she went to physical therapy and after two sessions her headaches were gone. My insurance actually covers physical therapy so I would look into it If I were you.

Migraines which I personaly never really experienced up untill 2 years ago and now I get them pretty often,Sleep apnea if you read about it you will understand why,burning pain at the top of your back,chest tightness,jaw pain,neck and back pain and many other symptoms.I have experienced everything they talk about and many other things which could quite probably be linked to this problem and I am quite sure this Fizzy thing could be linked also.

When I first mentioned to my doctor that I had pain in the neck and tingling in the fingers... he felt it was probably due a disk in my neck and wanted me to have an MRI... at the time I wasn't too worried about it and didn't botherso much, so I didn't bother to go. However, now that I feel the lymph node I will go back to see what he thinks. One of my questions are... actually to Rob... do you have a history of problems with your teeth?

Those also get better in the afternoon I generally have no pain in my neck . But I have had one episode with severe neck and pain in the back of head , swallowing problems the symptoms of possible occlusion of a vertebral artery, my myelopathy is not that bad on MRI. Did not have MRA because by then it got better.. Now my left arm gets also numb and has this inner agitation. The vibration and agitation is unbearable for me. The episodes have gotten more frequent and last months and months.
One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
