Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain looking down

neck

Interesting that I have experienced quite a bit of soreness on the side and base of my neck in the front of my chest. With my other injury my neck was injured going back and forth involving different muscles down over my shoulder blades. Tapezoid area requires more support. Didn't know that I carried tension from the day in my shoulder area as much as I presently do.
Since I have taken the Flexeril, the pain has calmed down and it is now just in my left side when I look down. I feels almost like a sharp pull in my muscle. Any thoughts out there?

would you mind looking at my post about neck pain? I posted last night and it's down the list a little. . .I'm wondering if what I'm experiencing is a neurological problem or unrelated to the "probably early MS" that my dr is talking to me about. Thanks!
This morning I went outside with a friend and decided to go swinging for the first time in years. When swinging I leaned back and felt this sharp pain in my neck. I immediately stopped and was in pain and have been in pain for the rest of the day. The pain started and increased until I was unable to move my neck very much beyond looking straight ahead and turning it to the right about 75 degrees.
Well, arthritis in your neck could be responsible for some of your symptoms, but don't you also have congestion and other issues that can not be traced to your neck? You know how it is, if you go looking for trouble, you often find it! However, this doesn't seem like a complete, satisfying explanation for your symptoms. It is good to go into your LLMD appointment with healthy skepticism, but I still think you should go. Just my opinion, of course.
I did have some relief with therapy, I do not take any medication. The symptoms that I feel are constant headache, neck shoulder arm pain numbness and weakness in my hands right worse than left. I also have numbness in my right bicep muscle. Would tingling in my feet be related to my neck? I have not be referred to any specialist and am not much of a complainer. I'm back at work, I do a lot of reading and computer work, and my symptoms are back . Just looking for some advice.
i've seen the DO 4 times, seen a dentist for possible TMJ, seen an ENT (nothing wrong in my throat after looking inside), seen a neurologist (nothing neurological, he sid ) about my neck pain for 9-10 weeks. the pain subsides a bit when i am standing up and i feel the front of my neck tightening when i am sitting down. i have asked over and over but got no answer if there is some muscle pulling somewhere that's straining my neck when i sit down?

At the minute my index fingures a little sore and when reading a newspaper my neck gets sore as well.Sometimes i fell a buzzing sound down by back if i bentd my head too much. Other then that i feel fine. I was looking to know has any one had this operation and what are their thaughts?
I seem to only feel neck pain in the right side and only when laying down on my right side and only when swallowing. Have seen a ENT and was told throat looked fine. I am thinking it could be an artery.
I am a LimboLander with an uncomfortable new symptom--or maybe not a symptom?? I have a stiff neck--and not the kind that you get after you sleep weird--and not like something is "out." It's just this line of pain from my neck dowm my right arm--and up to my jaw--I feel stupid asking because maybe it's just a stiff neck--but I've never had pain like this before and was just wondering if this sounds like something to add to my log of sx or if it seems unrelated.
I can manage about two hours of activity before I have to lie down for four to six hours, but I cannot sit without support for my head and neck for more than 20 minutes. Thus, I carry a highback ObusForme seat back in my car to use at school and other places where I must sit. My two functional hours include dressing, etc., meal preparation, housework, bill paying, seeing doctors, attending class, and occasionally walking my dogs.
That was my 8th neck nurgery and am fused from C3 thru T2, now that my neck is totaly fused my pain is pretty much gone after 25 years, so it can still be fixed don't give up. Keep me posted, been there done that.
As I slowly stood upright there was a pop in my lower right hand of my back and sent a pain down my leg. Well this isnt the first time it has happened..it has happened in the past but the pain would subside after like 5 mins. This time though the pain in my back stayed. So needless to say I went to the doc and he order some physical therapy. So I went to phys therapy. There he said one of my legs was shorter than the other. He called in a pelvis tilt.
Total mileage to and from destination is 260 miles Not looking forward this trip due to driving for any amount of time especially 2 hours both ways. Driving causes severe pain in my lower neck and shoulder area. Sitting, walking, standing, or lying down for any period time seems to make my back even irritated. Plan is to take high dose anti inflammatory, rest, and pain medication and hope to have some relief. Current time 9PM.

I can feel it when my neck is not moving and in a straight position but when I move my head it hurts and if I move it looking slightly up/down it hurts worst. The pain has died down a little since I woke up but it is still bad. I am pretty sure it is a pulled muscle but I Do not know how to treat it/ make it bearable. Please help me!
The problem is that now the pain is down in my neck and I can hardly turn my head from side to side. The pain feels almost like a burning pain in my neck and major stiffness. I don't see how sinus problems could last for this many months. Can sinus issues also make your neck hurt and be stiff? I don't know where to turn next. The neck pain and the ear noise is definitely getting on my nerves. Does anyone know what could be going on?
I can't sit or stand for long periods of time, I can walk but can't climb stairs without hurting. My neck and shoulders are stiff and hurt, looking up or down hurts a bit and I have this horrible headache that won't go away and according to my friends and family I look a bit confused at times I didn't go to the emergency room after the accident because I felt fine and I still think it might just be sore muscles. Today I finally went to the ER because I'm miserable and sleepy.
About 9 months after the operation she was massaging her neck and felt a pain in the back of her neck. Since this time things have got worse for her. She had a crackling noise everytime she moves her head which can either be mild or quite bad depending on what she has been doing. She says it is particularly worse when she is looking up i.e hanging out the washing etc.
I got electrocuted 2years ago and really banged my head. Ever since my neck has had pain. When i look down it sometimes feels the muscle is locking until i jar it out after a few attempts. I hav major loss of motion in all directions and recenctly it really hurts when around the base of my skull. I had an x ray and it showed slight wear and tear on tge bottom discs of my neck so i had an mri to see if there was nerve damage. There wasnt.
Sitting here feeling a bit down still got pins and needles, burning sensation in neck, sometimes get pain in right and left shoulders,still can't close my eyes with feet together without toppling over, and can't put heel to toe either. Any ideas.
Had physical therapy w/ iontoe treatment which helped very little but I was sent back to work through pressure from the P.O. I still experienced neck pain and weakness to the left hand and had neck surgery.Had protruding disc in c5 c6 level and the nerves were touching disc which was said to causedmy pain. Now I have a titanium plate in my neck but the surgery seemed to give back the strength to my left forearm/hand.
On 1-10 scale, it's average of 5-6, with flare ups every 1-2 weeks where it spikes to 9-10. The pain begins where neck and back of head come together (it feels like it's up inside that skull ridge) and then progresses forward in a circle like if you put your thumbs in your ears, put middle finger where head and neck come together, then rotate hands forward until middle fingers touch eyes: THAT'S one of the worst areas, on both sides of head.
I think this noise is coming from somewhere below the neck and above the waist line and as with camden73 it happens when I bend at the waist, swivel at the waist or move shoulders down from side to side, you asked her if it happens when her head and neck is left looking forward and she swivels, that's a yes for me it's very loud and even more audible when my mouth is open, I have showed this to my local G.
I'm still unsure as to whether or not I have chiari malformation, but have been having pretty bad neck stiffness with the pain now moving down my spine to between/just below my shoulders (the pain between my shoulders is a sharp pain whereas my neck pain is dull). Has anyone with chiari experienced symptoms like this? I'm currently waiting on my doctor to schedule me a cine MRI scan. I've been told that this is the only true way to determine if the CSF Flow is normal or constricted.
I have pain in both sides of my neck-feels deep and at times I get extremely sharp pains in one specific area of my anterior neck (again appears like it may be in one or two lymph nodes) when I blow my nose hard.
I just had a mri done and I dont understand what it means. I have neck & back pain for the last 5 years. I woke up two days ago and my right leg is numb and hurts to walk on. does anyone know if the results of my mri means? Loss of the normal cervical curve. C3-4 Shallow osteophytic complex eccentric to the left taterally. no stenosis C5-6 Shallow disc bulge. Minimal bilateral fecet arthropathy. There is mild bilateral neural forminal stenosis. C6-7 Disc space nerrowing.
First I had a laminectomy and felt ok but the neck pain came back after a few months then I had a fusion and the pain came back. in addition, prior to my fist surgery, my forefinger and thumb got numb. I can feel things but it's like there is a layer of wax covering the area. After the second surgery the pain came back and it's been a year of tests and possible diagnoses i.e. the fusion didn't take (I don't have a plate, just a bone graft).
