Depression symptoms neck pain

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms neck pain


Avatar n tn Sir, please explain to me how someone can know if they need further testing post 3 months by "knowing themselves"? A follow up 6 month test is always recommended, especially for individuals who may fall in the category of high risk. It is plain irresponsible to say a 3 month test is 100% conclusive. There are many cases where people don't test positive until after 3 months. Yes, please.
Avatar f tn He hit me and insulted me to an extent that i had to hit him back and my nails got in his neck and blood got out. After that, he remained coming after me and scaring me that he will hurt me or any of my close people at any moment. However, all these years of pain included a big drawback in my university grades. I used to be the first in my class and then i barely passed my courses. I tried so hard to overcome what i've been through but i couldnt do that alone. I had to visit a psychologist.

Avatar m tn I seem to only feel neck pain in the right side and only when laying down on my right side and only when swallowing. Have seen a ENT and was told throat looked fine. I am thinking it could be an artery.
Avatar f tn Felt burst of pain at left base of neck. Think I blacked out momentarily. Shaking badly. But because the pain was just a burst, I thought I was OK. I contacted my neurosurgeon's office and was sent for a neck x-ray, which showed no fracture. Within 24-36 hours of accident developed severe neck pain in left side of neck; head tilted and turned far right. Feb - Aug: Because the neurosurgeon said I had whiplash, I turned to a D.O.

Avatar f tn Symptoms, 8/17/2009 I have had nausea and bowel problems since I was a kid. Periodic Diarrhea, frequent stools, and nausea, are just a few of the symptoms I started having. I have also had periods of time where I will feel spacey, almost high, with vertigo, I went to a neurologist when I was a teen, to see if I was having seizures, he thought it may be migraines. I had very heavy periods, with extreme cramping. I have always had depression problems.

Avatar f tn I have been taking Effexor and Trazadone for over 10 years, for anxiety, panic disorder and for depression. I started taking pain meds for chronic pain last year. My question is can you really have pain throughout your whole body because you are so depressed?
Avatar f tn you can say the same for depression and chronic pain it causes the same..
Avatar n tn *Widespread pain. Fibromyalgia is characterized by pain in specific areas of your body when pressure is applied, including the back of your head, upper back and neck, upper chest, elbows, hips and knees. The pain generally persists for months at a time and is often accompanied by stiffness. *Fatigue and sleep disturbances. People with fibromyalgia often wake up tired and unrefreshed even though they seem to get plenty of sleep.
Avatar n tn My real question is when these symptoms happen such as the neck twitching and the head tightness (sometimes worse then a vice) what can immediately be done to help those if anything? Is it more of a wait it out and talk yourself down? I enjoy my alcohol 2x a week and felt this last time that 2 beers were making nmy head expand and made the tightness worse? Is there anyhting to that or is it more that the alcohol makes you think more things are severe?
1811056 tn?1316646764 What treatments has your doctor given you for the migraines which can cause a lot of other weird symptoms besides head pain? Also depression can cause stress plus a lot of other symptoms which your Nortriptyline was an anti-depressant. If you are still having a lot of stress, what about taking another anti-depressant or an anti-anxiety medication? I'm wondering if going off those 2 meds cold turkey could still be affecting you.
517902 tn?1314719029 It can be very difficult to cope with the symptoms of neck pain and other issues related to chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia. Not having insurance makes obtaining evaluation and medical treatment even more problematic. Given the hurdles to medical treatment you are currently experiencing, you do need to focus on methods of home care that you can implement yourself.
Avatar n tn Some people have no withdrawal symptoms and other have severe ones. The neck pain could very well be from stress and anxiety. Or it could be a pinched nerve. Have you even been to a Chiropractor? You might want to give it a try. I go on a pretty regular basis, about once a month and it really helps with my neck and back pain. I would recommend seeing your family Dr first about the neck pain though just in case it's not a pinched nerve and something else is going on.

Avatar f tn With abnormal nerve conduction test, history of traumatic spine injury, pain symptoms, and positive response to foraminal steroid injection, your doctors are pursuing a reasonable course of symptom management. Their assumption is probably soft-tissue injury causing injury to nerve root at indicated level. Gabapentin and similar medications help this condition.
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. Another type is occipital neuralgia. This headache is caused by irritation or injury to two nerves that run from the upper neck to the back of the head.
Avatar f tn I have just started to get back into running but on several occasions after my runs have noticed some of those same sciatic symptoms. I'm still getting some neck pain at times and wonder if this is due to posture and/ or jarring. I think some of my other symptoms may have been due to extreme stress (anxiety, depression and migraines??). Thank you very much for your feedback.
Avatar n tn I should take Dolan for the neck pain and weakness. I think it makes me nervous and causes tremor which symptoms I already had before the medicine. Doctors have suggestedted many diagnoses, not very seriously. They don't want to clear up the situation. Polymyalgia, vasculitis myasthenia gravis, TIA, otosclerosis ?? They say that the neck weakness does not result from hyperparathyroidism. What is the cause for it?
Avatar n tn pain in neck. For awhile i thought the pain i get in the left side (mainly) of my neck was serious too. but Dr's checked my arteries and they are fine. my Doctor says it's muscle spasms and he's probably right. i do have problems with spasms due to neck and lower back problems. so it's mostly muscles but try relaxing, heat and maybe even an aspirin. good luck.
138239 tn?1239928524 What are her symptoms other than pain in her neck.. is it constant pain or shooting sharp pains intermittenly? Again, I would asked the Dr. that ordered that FNA to go over those results with you.. it sounds like it was an inconclusive test..
Avatar n tn Hi, About 4 months ago I woke up one morning and I had some pain in my neck on my right side. Like I slept on my neck wrong or something. Over the next few days the pain got progressively worse. A week or so went by and the pain went away. So, I thought I just slept on my neck wrong or something. Well, about 2 months ago, the same thing reacurred. This time after a few days went by, I was getting up from doing something, and something happened in my neck and shoulder area.
353964 tn?1238853319 First few were for severe headaches at the base of my head, then for muscle spasms in the neck (severe neck pain), and the last one I was convinced that an artery in my neck was slowly blocking up and that I was going to have a stroke and die. Another visit was from having chest pain and knee pain and convincing myself it was a blood clot. None of these ER visits happened without reason, every single time i was experiencing pain that was scaring me.
