Avatar n tn When i rest in a tub with my head on the back of the tub and my body straight in the warm water as if i was lying straight with neck in water my neck twitches and cracks on its own i barely feel the pt when she rubs my neck in that area, the pt has helped with the rotation and lower neck muslces but me and her both feel no difference up above.

Avatar n tn I have this awlful pain that keeps occuring on one the left side of my neck and there is really bad pain that is in throat area just under my ear/jaw area but most importantly the pain goes behind my ear through my temple and into my left eye ( my eye feels like it is goning to burst). This pain is so severe that I gag from the throat pain and I even get sick. The left side of my face evene gets really cold during the pain attacks. I feel like I may pass out most of the time.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been having major problems with constant dull headaches (only really hehind the eyes and temple) that seem to radiate from my right shoulder, and rhomboid/scapula pain for about 1.5 years now and have pretty much given up. I have done Right AC Joint, Right Scapula, Cervical, and Thoracic MRI's along with X-Rays of everything with no major findings. Had facet joint injections in C5 and C6 and epidural cervical injection without relief.
Avatar f tn How bad are the headaches? Where are the headaches? Do you have any neck pain or stiffness. That would help determine a treatment for you. But for your doctors not to be treating your headaches at all is incompetent. Don't fool with them any longer.

I am 30 years old and do not want to live with this pain for the rest of my life. I want to be active in my childrens lives.

Avatar f tn For the past 11 weeks i have been getting daily (some times more that once a day) headaches which at best can be described at feeling like I have been shot in the head just above and behine my ear and at worst in my head, into my ear and right down to my neck and sholder. I have been to the doctors 3 times but they just keep telling me to take paracetemol/codeine. Ordinary pain killers dont help.
Avatar n tn Has your doctor mentioned anything about arthritis in your neck or other areas of your C-spine or L-spine?

I just found out that I have it about a month ago. Good luck.

Avatar n tn Pain at only one side of the head and associated symptoms like orbital pain (eye pain) could be most likely suggestive of facial migraine. One may experience throbbing headaches and could be worsened by normal physical activity. Other symptoms may be nausea, vomiting and facial pain. A doctor can diagnose the migraine after understanding symptoms and examining you. Triggering factors that may induce your migraine attack may be stress or depression, bright lights, loud noise and traveling.

Avatar f tn I was given a 14 day treatment. However my neck has been giving me pain, it hurts to turn from side to side. I’ve had slight headaches, no fevers. I have no problems looking down though. Is this something to be worried about?
Avatar f tn Hi, I Have had a very long history of migraine and terrible headaches all of my life then the pain at the back of my neck started and I went through an odyssey of doctors and heard everything from “you don’t have anything wrong with you-to go home in the waiting room are real patients”. In the end I at last by pure chance found a neurosurgeon that took me seriously and treated me as a real person.
Avatar f tn So I got neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, leg pain, and tenderness. I just started back working (because of this economy, not because of my back pain), and I swear I am in the worst pain ever. I can not sit up straight, in the same spot, for too long. Even when I'm leaned against a pillow in bed or on the sofa, my back and neck aches. I stay in pain!!
