after a few days the pain seemed to travel all the way up the left side of my head to my temple. The left side of my head feels weird. I am aware of my ear even my teeth on left side.

However after doing this when i turn my head in a clockwise circle my neck cracks every time.

Hi I have had head and neck pain for a month. I have started having the shakes within the last 2 weeks. I also have numbness in different areas of my head both left and right side. I have problems my whole life with fatigue. I can fall asleep anywhere at any given time. What could be wrong with me? Could it be MS?
However, in the last week or so I have been having severe neck pain on the left side that runs into my head around my ear and forward. I quit going to my pain management doctor because he only treats me with pain meds and I am afraid of taking too many. Could this be a sign that my neck maybe getting worse and what are the dangers involving this kind of neck trauma if not treated? I am considering going back to see the pain management doctor to find a solution.
It feels like a muscle on the left side of my neck hurts to where it is difficult to turn my head and then the pain started shooting to my head and now the back of my head hurts. I have been doing monthly massages so my neck feels better for a short time and then the pain is back after about a week. Can you tell me what can be causing this. I work at a computer most of the day, then on my second job I stand for about 5.5 hours.
On 26 Aug 2008, I had a total parotidectomy due to a 5 cm deep lobe tumor. After the surgery pain subsided, I was free from the head/neck/shoulder pain for about a month. Since then, the pain has gotten worse, however two additional locations have started to hurt. It is now on the side of my head (between my eye and ear) and deep in my neck. It has accelerated to a boiling point, much like it did right before I was referred to the ENT who performed my surgery.
I thought that perhaps my shoulder issues were the cause of the neck and head pain I was getting on the same side (left) but as my shoulder itself felt better and got stronger, the neck and head pain on the left side continued. When the MRI was done, everything seemed normal except a small mass was found in the area of my carotid artery/ behind my clavicle bone not far from the aortic arch.
I decided to take some left over antibiotic (I know not recommended) because my daughter had some which wasn't finished because she switched medication, and low and behold all of my sypmtoms, ear pain, jaw pain, scalp pain, and neck pain all cleared up. I'm not sure if this is the reason or the cure, but I welcomed the relief. Good luck.
I too have head and neck pain feeling as though I have a cap on my head (left side). I first put it down to a draft where I work, it comes and goes. I was recently diagnosed with lichen planus and wondered if it could be related to this. I believe it could be stress related too. Have you had bloods done? Seen a dentist?
I have had severe to moderate head and neck pain for almost 2 years. I have seen numerous neurologists and neurosurgoens but so far, no one has been able to diagnose me. My chiropractor says I have a subluxed axis. How come it cannot be seen on an MRI or cat scan? Also, what sort of imaging can capture this problem on film? The majority of the pain is on the left side of my head and neck. I often have ear pain also.
I have been having neck, shoulder, and pain in the back of my head for about 2 years, The pain in the back of my head is severe enough to where it hurts to sleep on it or turn my head, I get migraines with my cycle but these are different. I feel dizzy often It is mostly on my left side of my head and neck and shoulder. My headaches are everyday, nothing makes them better all the way. I have taken pain killers, motrin.. nothing works. I exercise my neck and shoulders but still no relief.
the first thing it made me think of was it looked like my spine on the side of my neck. silly i know. it hurts to move my head, hurts even to lay my head down on a pillow. What could this be? Should i make a doctors appointment for this or just tough it out?
After doing so a few days later I noticed I had knots on the back bottom part of my head going to the neck on the left side. It is very painful when I touch it or brush my hair. What could this be? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/744194'>Lump behind ear</a>.
csf leak was suggested so I layed flat for 3 days and the increadible pressure lessened as did the facial numbness and disequalibrium and now I am left with the ringing and neck/skull pain w/cracking and grinding noises. Somedays are better then others where my head feels so heavy and just aches. I have been having PT for 2 months with no improvement and have a neurologist appointment in 2 weeks (I have been waiting 3mo). I am 29 and pmh of mvp and tmj.
Hi, Thank you for your question. Generally pain in the back portion of the head and neck pain originate from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine since the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, this kind of head pain aggravates after turning head and typically occurs in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
Tension headaches usually present with dull-type of headache. While pain at the back of head or neck that intensifies on movement may be caused by inflammation of the blood vessels of the head or bony changes in the structures of the neck. Anti-inflammatory drugs and muscle relaxants may help provide relief. If your present medications do not help, inform your doctor for proper management.Change of dosage or medicine may be indicated. Take care and regards.
I currently refer to my neck as "popcorn neck." It crackles when I move it, and while that could be Father Time marching on, the correlation between the loudness of my neck and illness makes me think it's more likely Lyme related. After I started treatment, I did notice a worsening in neck pain (which is now gone, it's more just stiff/loud now).
It presents with one sided pain in the temple area ( not neck pain), jaw pain and pain when chewing. It is associated with elevated ESR in the blood ( an inflammatory marker) and needs to be treated with steroids ASAP as it can cause vision loss. Again it is highly unlikely that you mother has this. Occipital neuralgia seems more likely. I hope this helps. Good luck.
I have no other symptoms besides the head/neck pain, and the occasional flushing/burning of my face and ears. I have seen a neurologist, PCP, and orthopedic doctor. I have also been going to an acupuncturist for quite some time now, and I have also been seeing someone who does bodywork/myofascial release work. My neck muscles feel very tight but there is no way to loosen them up. I had one MRI scan of my brain which showed up normal.
For around 25 years I have had the most horrendous left shoulder blade/neck pain. I have had physiotherapy, seen a chiropractor, had endless x rays, had aromatherapy, had acupuncture, taken endless painkillers…the list is endless. Also, 21 years ago my physiotherapist said that I was …. "born with a flat spine"!? Every treatment I have had has brought zero results, freedom from pain or respite.
