Neck pain looking up

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain looking up


Avatar m tn Hi, Im a 33 yr old male that has been having terrible headacks and neck pain for the last 12 years of my life .I have a young family and this neck pain has been ruining my life , Im on 3 different medications had botox injections and other and I still wake up with pain every single day the meds do not take it away just dulls it for about an hour or two if Im lucky. I constintly have a aching neck and I feel a lump or hard spot on the right side of my spin about two fingers down from the base.
Avatar m tn Sounds like classic disc disease of the neck. Surgery may be the only thing that helps. But I would try cervical decompression and P.T. with a cold laser machine, before any surgery. I'v had 6 neck fusions and with the pain I had the scar on my neck was the last of my worries. If you have arm problems confirmed by M.R.I. you probably are a candidate for surgery, and it will get worse without surgery. There can be permanent damage to your arm if ignored.
Avatar f tn I use mint essential oil and/or Tiger Balm to help the pain. I also have a beanbag I can heat up in the microwave and wrap it around my neck. It helps.
Avatar f tn would you mind looking at my post about neck pain? I posted last night and it's down the list a little. . .I'm wondering if what I'm experiencing is a neurological problem or unrelated to the "probably early MS" that my dr is talking to me about. Thanks!
450140 tn?1317947304 I am thinking that the neck pain, headaches,and bloody vomitus may be connected. Your neck vessels through a carotid duplex ultrasound may be assessed also. Narrowing of these vessels may lead to dizziness and headaches. Continue observing your symptoms.Always have someone accompany you at home. At this point, migraine headaches with tension headache component may be a probable diagnosis given that your examinations showed normal results. Keep us posted with regards to your progress.
Avatar m tn I made it back to work today, friday, but I am still sore. So far, the pain in neck area is decreased. We'll have to wait and see.
Avatar f tn Small areas start to stiffen such as right behind my ear. Pain and stiffness then happen going into my neck and up into my head, tension, headache, eye pain, etc. I've also had inner ear tube, or Eustachian tube dysfunction which causes dizziness, ear fullness, etc. And honestly, some of what you describe sounds like it could be related to anxiety. Any of that sound plausible to you?
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 n tn There is a certain type of PT that many benefit from with neck and back pain - but costly if you dont have insurance. People with blown out discs even see good results so its worth looking into. Regular PT is not that great. The neck and back machine that works like no other is called Med -X. Goggle it. These machines are patented so no other brand will do what these do. Maybe contact the company to find out what PT clinic close to you has this particular machine.
Avatar n tn ve seen the DO 4 times, seen a dentist for possible TMJ, seen an ENT (nothing wrong in my throat after looking inside), seen a neurologist (nothing neurological, he sid ) about my neck pain for 9-10 weeks. the pain subsides a bit when i am standing up and i feel the front of my neck tightening when i am sitting down. i have asked over and over but got no answer if there is some muscle pulling somewhere that's straining my neck when i sit down?
Avatar f tn For about a week I had extreme soreness on my jawline. Pain for several weeks in my neck like I had severely injured my neck or something or had influenza, it hurt. Sometimes I noticed my finger joints were so sensitive to touch. A purple spot appeared on the side of my calf and lasted for about a week. I have had this small spot on my inner cheek that seems raised.
Avatar n tn I suspect I have gallbladder problems, one doctor told me I had a heart attack and sent me to a cardiologist. My echo and stress test and helico AB blood test all came back negative. I'm not having the full heart attack symptoms now, but I'm in constant pain, high up in the right side of my back and around to the front upper abdomen. Sometimes the pain is throughout my whole mid-section, front and back. I have nausea, lightheadedness, diarrhea.
Avatar f tn We have been going to doctor for about 2 yrs now with his neck pain and headaches. We were recently sent to a Neurologist, had mri and results showed Chiari Malformation. My son was in the room and I was in shock when the doctor said brain surgery. We have an appointment the 26th with Neurosurgeon now. I have been researching this because I did not ask alot of questions due to my son being in the room and shock. I am just devistated. Do I need to get a second opinion?
483733 tn?1326798446 I gag on it and I seem to still clench when wearing it. I have so much shoulder and neck pain and just awful headaches. I am now having ulcer problems so can no longer take ibuprofen or aspirin which do help some of the pain. I am fed up and wnat my life back. Does anyone have some advice on how to proceed to get rid of the pain?
Avatar f tn If my head is static for any length of time it hurt when I move it especially if I look up, I get very dizzy when I look up, if I am looking down at the computer and raise my head to face forward it hurts. Sitting in front of the computer for five minutes without a brake is enough to set off a HA for me Selma has suggested to me to prop up the end of the bed a few inches so that your feet are above the level of your head and this helps.
736529 tn?1233080422 I have recently had joint pain all over. I went to my chiropractor for severe neck pain on the left side and pain shooting down to my left shoulder. He has done adjustments but to no avail which is unusual for past neck tension. My left shoulder sometimes burns and than feels numb. I suffer from frequent headaches. I sometimes feel like I am walking of clouds and totally disassociated with myself. I feel this is syptomatic of Chiari and would like to know if this fits the criteria?
Avatar f tn Last month and a half ago I begin to have left neck pain only If i turn my head left, right and all the up looking at the ceiling. When I look all the way up, if I support the back of my head there is no pain. The pain also go to my left shoulder now too but still mostly on my left neck. Please help and let me know what I can do to get rid of this pain. I can’t really go out for treatment now since the covid 19 thing. Ps. There is no pain if i keep my head straight.
Avatar n tn About 9 months after the operation she was massaging her neck and felt a pain in the back of her neck. Since this time things have got worse for her. She had a crackling noise everytime she moves her head which can either be mild or quite bad depending on what she has been doing. She says it is particularly worse when she is looking up i.e hanging out the washing etc.
Avatar f tn I have it checked every 6 months) But the past year I have been dealing with constant congestion and post nasal drip, change in voice (hoarseness) which are new symptoms and for the past 3 months I have feel like I have a lump in my throat, and ears have been hurting, as well as the sides of my neck, along with a little cough.
Avatar f tn s nothing for me to find ticks on my outside cats. In the middle of July I took my son to urgent care for a huge red area on his neck. The doctor could see a bite mark, said it was either a tick or spider bite. She ordered amoxicillin for a week which cleared it right up and he was fine for about a month. At the end of August he started with vague complaints, headache abdominal pain achy muscles. Then he started with a swollen lymph node in his groin severe abdominal pain and high fevers.
Avatar f tn I did have some relief with therapy, I do not take any medication. The symptoms that I feel are constant headache, neck shoulder arm pain numbness and weakness in my hands right worse than left. I also have numbness in my right bicep muscle. Would tingling in my feet be related to my neck? I have not be referred to any specialist and am not much of a complainer. I'm back at work, I do a lot of reading and computer work, and my symptoms are back . Just looking for some advice.
Avatar n tn I went to an orthopedic because my neck was popping so much and because of the head and neck pain. But he found no problem on the MRI. But that doesn't explain anything. He summed everything up in 5 minutes (that I need physical therapy). I know this probably doesn't answer your question but I can relate to doctors treating me like it's in my head. I hope the neurologist can help you too.
Avatar f tn I am a LimboLander with an uncomfortable new symptom--or maybe not a symptom?? I have a stiff neck--and not the kind that you get after you sleep weird--and not like something is "out." It's just this line of pain from my neck dowm my right arm--and up to my jaw--I feel stupid asking because maybe it's just a stiff neck--but I've never had pain like this before and was just wondering if this sounds like something to add to my log of sx or if it seems unrelated.
