Allergy and neck pain

Common Questions and Answers about Allergy and neck pain


Avatar f tn I had one of the oddest Asthma attacks last night. I've had asthma most of my life (35 of my 39 year life) but, I don't remember ever having one that came on so quick before and went away so quick before. I'm wandering if it was caused by a food allergy I didn't know I had as I can't think of anything else that could have triggered it. Basically, I had a bowl of soup (from a tin) and a couple of cheese sandwiches for dinner then sat and watch tv.
Avatar n tn Had my septum and sinuses worked on and had relief for about a month and a half after. But now the dizziness is back with neck pain and some tingling in my left arm. Seems like having lot of trouble focusing, especially on computer screen or tv. Also had a ENG which showed a square wave in my eyes. But I have already had MRI and CT scans of brains with no abnormalities. Neurologist says neurological tests were fine. Could this dizziness be related to sinus/allergy/TMJ, etc?
697772 tn?1228060328 All of my symptoms gradually disappeared in a few days, all except the nasal congestion and the neck pain. Five days later I was with a sore throat again and also productive cough, mild fever (37.3), nasal congestion and this neck pain that never disappeared. It's been 2 weeks since that and now some of my muscles ache, the pain in my neck is still there. I haven't noticed any swollen lymph nodes. Is it possible to have painful lymph nodes without swelling?
Avatar f tn then,they thought it was allergy i got tested and found i have allergy to dust dust mites cats I am on allergy meds and nose spray. i also have gerd and take protonix for that. In the past 3 months the voice horseness has gotten worse coming more often and lasting longer and I am having chest/back pain it hurts in my chest and back all day and night and when i take a deep breath i get sharp pains. I went to my doctor they did blood work and found i am diabetic.
Avatar n tn Neck pain along with these symptoms can be radiated pain and could be due to chronic sinusitis. But if you are having only neck pain then it could be related to trauma to the cervical spine, slipped disc, muscle sprain, hypertension etc. I would recommend that you consult a physician for further examination and confirmation of the cause for this. Best.
Avatar m tn ve tried tracking it as a seasonal allergy or a food allergy, and have yet to find any link to specific triggers. My ENT seems at a loss. He gave me a cortizone shot for the pain in my neck/ears, but it seems like it's treating the symptom, not the cause. We did a throat culture that came back negative. I started taking allergy shots a few months back, but I'm not sure if they're helping.
Avatar f tn Last wek I got red and itching eyes, since then my entire face has become red, itchy and burning with some swelling. My neck now have become red and blotchy and is starting to itch. I've chanaged to new cosmetics incase something was old or wrong with them, this has not helped. Last year I had an allergy test and was told I wasn't allergic to anything. My diet has not changed. Please Help. Thank You!
Avatar m tn 3 weeks ago I was prescribed Ciproflaxcin for a prostatsis, I took the Cipro for about a week and a half when I about 5 days into the prescription I began to experience major burning pain in my muscles, joints, and neck. After day 9 the pain was unbearable so I stopped and three days later went to the ER for treatment, I told them I had a bad reaction to the Cipro so they changed my prescription to Bactrim which almost immediately dropped my pain level from a level of 8 to a 2 on a 1-10 scale.
1485281 tn?1287948392 Experimenting with sleeping positions that are comfortable for your back and neck can avoid creating new neck pain and back pain. Gentle massage with oil and hot compression will help. I suggest you to consult physician. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn But meningitis is fatal. And the hallmark symptom is stiff neck and neck pain coupled with fever.
Avatar f tn I have been suffering severe and progressive muscle weakness, pain, fatigue, and other symptoms. I have a titanium plate in my cervical spine. After 18 months, I just found out I am having an allergic reaction to the titanium plate. The test was easy. The doctor took a normal x-ray of my neck and it showed a white cloud covering my entire neck and shoulder area. My metal plate was barely visible. I am told we caught it in time and I do not have to have the plate removed.
Avatar n tn The glands in my neck are sore and swollen. There does not seem to be much, if any, good news to be found on the resolution of this condition. Any suggestions??
Avatar n tn iv been unwell now since the 27th sept o9 with what the docs call is an allergy but to what they have no idea it started itching with a slight rash around the face below my ears within days my eyes swelled badly and my whole face and neck was swollen and very red iv spent over a hundred pounds in perscriptions and i still have no idea whats going on iv had steriods since it started and still on them iv had steriod cream which made my face peel 4 times also i had a bumpy rash on both palms of my
Avatar f tn the first thing to be ruled out is allergy and swelling involving lips, larynx and around the neck is termed as angioedema. If having breathing problems then you need to go hospital without delay. There are certain known triggering factors like ACE inhibitors, stress, excitement, cold exposure, prolonged sitting or standing, and ingestion of certain foods. Hence, you need to identify this triggering factor and avoid the further exposure.
Avatar m tn My chiropractor suggested it may be some food allergy, i was looking through a few more of my symptoms which are dark circles under eyes(maybe from lack of enough sleep but idk), itchy skin (my nose itches a lot), puffy eyes(every morning when i wake up my eyes are puffy), swollen glands(those one under my jaw always seem to be a little swollen), and ibs can all be from food allergy. hmmm maybe i need an allergy test.....
Avatar n tn I also have been suffering with shoulder and neck pain, and even upper back. I was wondering if the two could be related. I was tested for hormonal problems, thyroid problems, myalgias, and anything else they routinely test for when they take your blood. I was given a low dose of antiepressant to help me sleep at night so I am not awakened with the pain. This helps at night, but I am getting weary of the constant ache.
Avatar f tn I was in a terrible accident almost two years ago, I was hit by a woman doing sixty miles and hour while I was stopped waiting to make a left turn. My question is, I had my neck fused at c3-c6. I still have pain, and now I hurt from c3 up, it's so bad that I cry but I also have pain in my throat. The surgery was done on 9/5/12, I still have problems swallowing, eating, speaking and if I'm not careful I will also take some fluid or some food into my lungs.
Avatar n tn Hi Nancy 1002, Could be an allergy since it is seasonal but could be as the above post said, eczema. I have eczema and I get tiny non colored bumps on my hands and they peel and on my legs they are tiny and red and itch like mad. Do not scratch it makes it worse. I found that Eucerin Plus intensive repair dry skin care hand cream works for my legs and hands. It has some ingredient that coats the skin so it doesn't dry out. You have to keep the moisture barrier. It works pretty well.
Avatar f tn A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. If your neck MRI is clear then the pain could be referred to the neck 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. Use a hard bed to sleep. Avoid a pillow.
Avatar f tn It started with itching-like dry skin. Then I would get the itching on my face and my face and neck literally were red with swelling. I tried rosacia creams and anything to sooth my actually "hot"skin. I eventually called the doctor with probably my 3rd breakout in 5 months-The doctor was stumped. He put me on a steroid, antibiotic and bedadryl (interveniously to start) and it cleared up.
Avatar f tn Hi there .. I want to know that , can the swollen lymph nodes in the jaw and the neck be caused by allergies ?
Avatar m tn Around same time same itchy rash started to develop around neck (basically between breasts and neck). Sometimes itch goes away or becomes almost unnoticeable, but sometimes (mostly around evening, before sleep) it becomes unbearable so I start to scratch them. Could it be scabies? Or some sort of allergy (but my lifestyle haven't really changed for last couple of weeks).
Avatar m tn 10 days ago, I woke up with sore throat kind of symptom (with pain in neck, normally i will get such pain in neck in allergy season), headache, etc. Dr prescribed me antibiotics which helped me a bit. 4 days ago i went to allergy Dr to get Kenalog steriod shot for my allergy treatment. I woke up that night with night sweat and it has happened few times in last 5 days. I also logs 4 pounds weight in last 10 days (i was 172, now 168).
Avatar m tn Hello there, Just finished reading your comments. You say your cat coughs and sneezes when you pet him, scratch his tummy or neck. I don't think your cat is allergic to his own fur. I think when you pet him, scratch his tummy or neck you release fur into the air and the fur is getting into your cat's nose and throat which causes him to cough to try to get the fur out of his mouth and nose. Sounds to me like your kitty may need to be brushed more often, carefully of course.
Avatar f tn I randomly have the sensation of my neck/throat area being swollen or tightening up and have difficulty swallowing and occasionally, breathing. I believe it is allergy related as it comes randomly. After 5 years, I've noticed patterns. It seems to happen when I come into contact with certain allergens - i.e. dust/debris from construction, smoggy summer days, incense, cigarette odor from an item/person and certain perfumes.
