Avatar m tn Hi, According to the National Headache Foundation, neck arthritis and headaches are common health problems. Wear and tear of neck cartilage and joints can press on nerve roots and can cause headaches, especially at the back of the head. Inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis can also cause spinal disruption which also causes headaches by pinching or pressing on neck and scalp nerves. if his headaches persist, he may need to have this checked before it gets worse.

Have u ever been in a MVA?...had a fall?...sometimes that can play into what is going on...so can stress.

Avatar m tn Based on these findings, the chronic headaches, neck and back pain etc can all be caused by the nerve compression at the C3-C4 level. (Google "dermatomes" and you can see what areas of the body are affected by each spinal nerve. Your doctor can review these findings in greater detail at the time of your appt in three weeks. He will also be able to provide treatment recommendations, which could include surgical intervention.
Avatar f tn I have atrophied in my hand (minimal grip strength and loss of use of middle, ring and pinky) and my shoulder and shoulder blade are atrophied. I get severe neck pain and headaches. I also have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in the limb. Any comments from the forum on any related things you have going on. I am scared and have been given the run around by docs.
Avatar n tn I am seeing a neurologist for chronic headaches, she has ordered botox injections and has me on nortriptyline and naproxen. ever since my accident my neck pain and headaches has gotten worse.
1487040 tn?1288078267 Cervical spondylosis is usually caused by chronic wearing away of the cervical spine and may lead to nerve compression over time. Aside from neck pain and loss of sensation, headaches, particularly in the back of the head may also be present. These symptoms my get better with conservative measures such as medications, physical therapy, and cortisone injections.
Avatar n tn Hi i'm a 30 year-old female and i'd like you advice on my condition. About 6 weeks I started experiencing stiff neck and bad headaches (they felt like tension headaches). I wasn't too concerned since i'm a chronic headache sufferer, but this was different because of the stiff neck. I went to a chiro (who was also a physiotherapist) and she tried a bunch of things over the past few weeks - massage, interferential, ultrasound, chiro, etc.
Avatar n tn Basically, anytime I walk, or bend down, there is a shooting pain that starts from my neck and goes to my head. The pain spasm lasts roughly 5 seconds, and it keeps repeating, depending on my motion (walking or bending down to pick something up). I must also mention that I have a chronic problem of cracking my neck, and lately, due to a stressful job, I've been doing it more frequently.
Avatar f tn precipitation of head pain by neck movement or awkward neck positions, head pain when external pressure is applied to the neck or occipital region, restricted range of motion of the neck, and neck, shoulder and arm pain. Treatment for cervicogenic headache includes physical therapy, medications, behavioral therapy, and other modalities. Occipital neuralgia is caused by irritation or injury to two nerves that run from the upper neck to the back of the head.
Avatar m tn I get headaches ( behind my eye, on top, or back of my head very small areas with almost crippling peircing pain) very regularly, but i have not notice a link between my headaches and my pain. The pain is most notably triggered by alcohol and it seems to trigger the worst pain. I get the pain without this trigger but its never severe enough to complain about.
Avatar m tn A year and a half ago, I was in a pretty bad car accident. My car barrell rolled at 45mph about 3-4 times. I was not wearing a seat belt and was able to get out of the car and brought to the hospital for a couple stitches in my hands from the glass. About three months after the accident, I began to expierence muscle problems. The muscles in my legs and back began to hurt terribly. I was no longer able to do yoga or really any type of activity for a long period of time.
Avatar f tn I have nerve pain in my arms and left leg related to this. Have you tried Lyrica for the nerve pain? It really did help me. I have been off it because we've been trying for our first child and really notice a signifant increase in pain. I don't think massage would be harmful if the person is trained in back and neck injuries. It actually helped me quite a bit. Also consider trying tizanadine or brand name zanalex for the spasms.
Avatar f tn Here goes... I am 24 years old and have been suffering from chronic neck pain for about thirteen years. It started out with minor headaches and general stiffness. As I grew older, and especially in the last five years, it has gotten progressively worse at a quicker pace. I have good posture and am in good shape. On a scale of one to ten, at best the pain is ever maybe a two - not that bad, but still definitely there.
Avatar n tn My other symptoms are one arm being weak and the other arm having nerve pain from my neck, through my neck to my thumb and forefinger. I have pain and pressure behind my right eye and often have shooting pains in my right ear as well. If there are lights flashing it will set off my balance as well as shiny floors or alot of people in my periphiral vision. I had an MRI and it was negative, I had xrays which shows I have a bit of OA in my C1/C2.
Avatar f tn I can never lie on my back without the feeling of a heavy head and feeling like I am lying on a hard surface with constant pain on my neck and severe headaches. If I was to move too quickly then I would everything goes white and I become very dizzy and sometimes fall back. I don’t always get headaches but when I do, it feels like someone is constantly pushing on my head or pulling on my shoulders.
894326 tn?1279784085 You got one tore-up neck, child. And yes, you should be receiving medications for the pain you are experiencing. A neurologist is the person who should be treating you at this point, preferably a group clinic. Both MRI reports and the nerve study report should be forwarded to his office, so he'll have that. I get the distinct impression that when the second MRI and the nerve study were done, they did not realize you had been in an accident.
Avatar f tn I been having neck strain for 3 year now with the headaches and the middle of the back I went got a mri and catscan with dye for my head the nurelogy did not find nothing that was 2008 and 2010 i got a xray of my neck and nothing I just got a real bad neck strain pain and muscle relaxant does not help at all i have real bad headaches due to this tingling im feeling .
Avatar m tn Your symptoms sounds as if they are nerve and anxiety related. And when I say nerve I mean nerve endings, nerve fibers and/or damage. When we have undiagnosed pain our anxiety kicks up. Anxiety can exuberate our pain and symptoms. I know that is true for most of our chronic pain sufferers. I agree with Sandee that these symptoms are unlikely related to your former drug use. Do you have a PCP that you have built a trusting and a good relationship with?
Avatar n tn It affects my sleep, my mood with my children adn husband and my outlook on life. I cant find anything on the nerve pain affiliated with this condition. Idea????
Avatar f tn I have been trying to get a doctor to understand and CARE for years now, and in the meantime the pain gets worse and worse and worse. About 5 years ago, I started with slight back pain and was referred to chiropractors and physical therapists, which caused NO relief... I was in care for about a year with each. The back pain at that time felt like a constant pulled muscle in between my shoulder blade and spine, on the right side.
Avatar f tn It has been over 12 years that I have been suffering with severe chronic headaches that I 'deal' with 24/7 because nothing has worked and I do not take anything for it. I have had MRI's, blood tests and everything else in between and they've all come back normal. Doctors cannot explain my pain or how I am able to function with it daily. All they've said is that my headaches are: "more severe and frequent than migranes".
Avatar n tn I have daily headaches and chronic pain that generates from the tightness in my neck. I constantly am cracking my neck and massaging the area so I can get that one great crack that will relieve the chronic pain momentarily.
