Recently I have been experiencing Pain on the right side of my Neck, in what feels to be my carotid artery. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is a very sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that only last a couple of seconds, and starts up every 15-20 seconds. This can last about a minute or two, and then sometimes even longer. I'm worried about some type of carotid artery disease? Is this something I should go right to the dr's about? I had my blood pressure taken yesterday and is was 126/73.

lately, for about the past two weeks, I have had a Pain that is sharp in nature on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>. Its not surface <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, but rather inside of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>, closer to my esophagus than anything, but it feels very sharp. I have seen a chiro before about back/posture issues, but just wondering if anyone else has had this or not. Im 32 and in relatively good health.
By Friday morning I was in severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> was swollen. Sounds crazy, but if I touched the carotid artery it got much worse. I went to the doctor Friday afternoon and he said there was inflammation around the carotid artery. I was/am also suffering from extreme anxiety, something I've never had a problem with. He put me on Celebrex (anti-inflammatory for my Neck and gave me Zoloft and Xanax for the anxiety.
For the last 6 months I guess I have been pretty breathless, very tired, dizzy fainting spells, and more and more often a very sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> which feels like the vein. I have to press on it hard to tollerate the Pain. I am worried that this further heart related problems. Today the Neck Pain has been on and off most of the day. I am a 64 year old woman.
Have you followed up with your doctor at all? I would certainly start there. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the side of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> could be in the carotid, and then it may be from a nerve or muscle too. If you are concerned, make an appointment with your pcp.
my wife gets Pain in her Neck and describes it as someone pushing a golf ball up her artery towards her brain. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is so intense it drops her to her knees. she then gets a sharp constant Pain just below her ear and in her temporal lobe, with immediate loss of sight. her pupils dialate to light normally, and sometimes she has a bad headache with it.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! in all probability this is Neck stiffness due to wrong sleeping posture. Other than that it can be occipital neuralgia which results from compression of higher cervical vertebral nerves. It can also be due to an inflamed carotid artery or jugular vein. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without examining. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper investigations and referral. Hope this helps. Take care!
I have seen my GP doctor once a week, and have mentioned to them that I have been having headaches and the I am now experiencing Pain on the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>, in what i believe to be my carotid artery. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is a very sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that only last a couple of seconds, and is sporadic. The Pain can last about a minute or two, I'm scared as to what this could be and am not getting any answers. Any answers or place you can direct me would be helpful.
I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>. When I prop on my left side I hurt in my chest, hard to breath, and my Neck and shoulder hurt. I change on to my right side and no Pain. Could it be a artery blocked or not. I have had a 4 bypass heart surgery. Went to the ER last night with these symptons plus sick at my stomach, headace and back hurting. Gave me something for Pain and sent me home. Could this be pertaining to my heart or not.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>. 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.
Stimulation of the internal carotid artery causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> along the artery that is sometimes accompanied by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the eye and parietal cephalalgia. These symptoms can result in wrong diagnoses, such as cluster headache or migraine. Symptoms may also include aphasia, sight disturbances, weakness or even syncope episodes. Stimulation of the external carotid artery causes facial Pain, mainly in the area Under the eyes.
I too am experiencing this excrutiating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>.. Like a sharp stabbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the left inner thigh.. I would say it's at the centre of the fleshy area about 2 inches below the crotch area.. It's like someone has got a red hot poker and stabbed me in the thigh and twisted it.. It only lasts for a few seconds but it totally knocks me sick! If I am asleep it wakes me up and I almost scream out. I find it terrifying. I'm going to make an appointment to see my GP asap.

2 years ago I had a chiropractic adjustment in which during I had a sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the area of C2. Later that evening, I had long period of a headache in the back of my head, dizzyness, nausea, visual problems and could not get up. After a few hours the Pain and symptoms went away. Over the next couple of weeks they returned but were not as severe and then went away, except for the Pain in my Neck has been constant.
Now for 6 days I have had a headache that comes and goes all day. Sometimes just a severe sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> out of the blue. Although I told my cardiologist that I had been having Pain in my Neck during 3 separate appointments, at mostly my right carotid artery (sometimes left side too), he hasn't done anything. So here I am looking for information. I noticed tonight that when I have the carotid artery area Pain my heart jumps around right after the inital Pain. Not sure what to think?
It presents with one sided <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the temple area ( not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>), jaw <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> 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.
Its not round and doesnt really have a shape - its just along the right side of my windpipe and a bit towards the back (inwards, where my artery is) The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> was increasing, getting more intense and much more frequent. It does not hurt to touch, but if I lean forward and come back up - I get a weird sensation in my Neck. If I cough or sneeze, I may get a slight dull Pain, perhaps a sharp one - it really varies.
The thing I can not Understand is I have little to no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>. I do however have tremendous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my right shoulder blade and down my right arm into my hand. This has been going on for about 3 months and when I cough I have sharp Pain in my shouder blade. Is this a normal sensation for a compressed nerve?
A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. If your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> MRI is clear then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> could be referred to the head and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> due to spinal problems of the upper back, or it could be due to tight Neck muscles, or due to stress and anxiety or due to clots in the carotid artery. Hence you can get a MRI of the upper back spine and a dopplar study of the carotids. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
) and thoracic outlet syndrome(a group of distinct disorders that affect the brachial plexus (nerves that pass into the arms from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>), and/or the subclavian artery and vein (blood vessels that pass between the chest and upper extremity).

other in that area that relay signals to cause temple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. Can be from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span>-posture/an artery narrowing blood flow/stress spasm/food. If it's been around along time, best to see a neurologist or start w/ his MD for referral. MRI may show something.

I would be anything from schoolwork, to internet browsing, to watChing tv, to eating, to even just laying down in the dark and I would get these intense sharp Pains on the back of my head behind my right ear. This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> only occurs in this location and it comes and goes. At first the Pains were simply a nuesance as they would come and go and weren't that bad, but lately they're getting worse causing me to stop what I'm doing until they go away.
in the past 3 weeks, he has also complained of sharp Pains in his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neck</span> which radiate up to his head. One odd symptom he had which seemed to go along with the Neck Pain and High Blood Pressure was very strong shaking of his legs in a few instances. He needed assistance from me and our close friend in order to walk on two separate occasions last week. Late Thanksgiving night one strong episode of Neck Pain and leg tremors put him in our local hospital.
THE QUICK SHARP <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that feels like a skipped beat and i get this overwhelming sensation on top of it. those have been happening since and its been years now.

For several years now I have been having very sharp chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that moves down my left arm and pulsates in my ring finger. the Pain will last only a few seconds, stay away for about 20-30 seconds then hit me again. It is not all over, only pinpointed just above my left breast. This will last different length in time but approx. 15 min hard then start to taper off to several min. between and not so sharp. I can't seem to figure out what brings it on.
