Later in the day, Pain appeared in the right side of the neck around my thyroid, with shooting pain down to my clavicle. All of these places hurt greatly when pressed. Lastly, I have mild hypothroidism. Could this pain and stiffness be related to a swollen thyroid?? Or have any connection to my thyroid??
Over the weekend, symptoms have not improved and neck pain beginning to return, nausea and a head pressure mainly in right ear. Should I seek another opinion from an ENT or Endo or just let it go?
Don't get your Adam's apple confused with your thyroid gland. The Adam's Apple is at the front of your neck, the thyroid is further down, and closer to your collarbone. The thyroid moves up as you swallow so anything orignated in the thyroid would also move up. source: thyroid about.
Hi Everyone, I'm 22years old, male, in good health except that I've had a very very tight neck and shoulder for almost two years. Physio kind of helps, chiropractors do not help, and massage therapy is a hit and miss. What helps the most is going to the gym and working out. Also, within the past year I've had blood tests with unusual results... I have a high TSH (about 10-12ish mIU/L) I have normal amounts of T3 and T4 (4.
Since I had the infection in both ears, wouldn't it be logical for both sides of the neck to be swollen with pain and tender lymph nodes? Please advise your thoughts to help me with this.

My ears have a full feeling. I had thyroid cancer last year and had the thyroid removed and did the radioactive treatment. Could this be something related to the thyroid or that area?. The type of cancer I had was called Hurthlel cell cancer.
I didn't even know I had Hashi's until I had an ultrasound of my thyroid (my sister had thyroid cancer.) I had no neck pain but sometimes felt a fullness when I swallowed. I would bring it up to your Endo and also have an ultrasound done if you haven't already. Best of luck to you!
I went to my chiropractor yesterday and got an adjustment. He examined my neck, found the swelling and suggested I see my GP. I have an appointment today. It's been 5 days. Massage won't work, it hurts too much. Thanks for all your advice.
I looked up what I could on Pth. Has to do with the Parathyroid glands. If it is elevated, it means you are not storing/using calcium properly. You may need to take maga doses of Vitamin D to prevent further problems. Also Magnesium was recommended for the throat/swallowing problem. Hope this helps some.

Hello, Neck pain can be due to many causes.It can be due to injury, a mechanical or muscular problem, a trapped nerve caused by a bulge in one of the discs between the vertebrae, or from arthritis of the neck. Sometimes it can be due to slipped disc, brittle bones (osteoporosis), deformed natural curvature of the spine (scoliosis) and, very rarely, structural damage due to tumors or infection.
The selenium helps with the swelling and pain in my neck (keeps the antibodies from raging so much). Magnesium helps with the muscle/joint pain.
I have had pain in my neck and continous infections in my throat. I finally got my doctor to do test. they did a ultra sound of my neck since my right side hurts so much and it is going into my ear. The pain is level 10 and the more I talk the mor out of breath I get. the report came back with a dx of Thyroid Nodules. The right lobe measures 3.7 x 2.7 x2.0 cm. the left is 3.7x1.9x1.6cm. There is a 8x4x4mm hypoechoic hetergeneous nodule in the mid portion of the right lobe.
I was wondering if there is any relation between neck pain and being hypothyroid? I did read somewhere that there could be a connection but thought that I would post this question. What do you do if it is connected? I do not have a goiter. However, my face and neck was a lot fuller before I started the synthroid which has been about 7 weeks ago, and I am waiting for my labs to come back after the first 6 weeks. Thank you and will look forward to your response.
I have a sore throat only on right side, my whole right side of my neck is swollen all the way behind my right ear causing pain and ear pain. I am scheduled to do the uptake and scan in 2 weeks.

Only medication given is propranolol, aderal and steroids for the sore throat and swelling.

I assume you have pain on touching your neck in the lateral (side) aspect. If with touching you are getting pain it is likely to be an inflammation of the skin, subcutaneous tissue or the trachea. This can happen with injury, repetitive activity or an infection of the skin. It can also be an enlarged lymph node or an inflammation of the thyroid gland. I would advise you to consult your doctor, for proper evaluation of your symptoms.
The reason I ask is because two weeks after my FNA I had neck pain on the whole left side that felt like I had whiplash and I also had a cold/sore throat. The neck pain lasted about a week and the sore throat lasted maybe 3 days. No one else seemed to think it was related to the FNA, but I couldn't figure out anything else it could be.
I am writing for my wife she has had 2 surgeries for Chiari and developed over time pain in the back of her neck when she swallows does anyone else have this problem or has anyone had this an had it fixed
These help with pain, but I have developed an itchy, unremitting rash on my right shoulder and should probably stop taking meds to see if any of them are causing it? I tried glucosamine but the pain and cracking remained and sometimes my head hurts on the right side too. I also have Hashimoto’s (TPO antibodies over 1,000) take 75mcg Levoxyl per day. There is a 1.2cm nodule on the right side of thyroid- it was ruled benign after biopsy.
I had an ultra sound done after complaining I could not swallow without it feeling like it was getting stuck in my throat. I also experienced neck pain for 2 days every time I swallowed. It didn't go away completely as I still have some pain if the food is not real small. The ultrasound reading was that my gland is normal in size and fairly homogeneous in echotexture. The right lobe measures 3.2 x 1.3 x 1.0 cm and the left lobe measures 2.9 x 1.0 x 1.0 cm. The isthmus measures 2 mm.
