Neck pain radiating to head

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain radiating to head


Avatar m tn Hi ChiefyMcChiefChief, I would have it checked out with your regular family doctor. Anything involving pain in your head, particularly radiating pain needs to be investigated by a professional. You say you've tried muscle relaxers, heat, ice and rest. I'd make an appointment with your doctor. Let your doctor tell you what he or she thinks is going on. Better to be safe. Good luck.
Avatar m tn These headaches could be due to stress, anxiety, migraines or tension headaches, sinus headaches radiating to the ear, headache usually front of head, on one or both the sides of temples along with nausea, vomiting, irritability, low blood pressure, sensitivity to lights, sound, etc. aura associated with migraines could include blind spots, blindness in half of your visual field, paresthesia, weakness or visual hallucinations. Your vision needs detailed testing by an ophthalmologist.
Avatar f tn 1. Pain radiating to left ear and neck off and on with swallowing 2. Feels like having a small pea stuck in side of throat, radiating to ear and tongue base 3. Pain on turning neck, or touching the carotid 3. CT (neck) with/ w-o contrast. Showed something "inflamed" at the bifurcation of the left carotid artery You must probably be having CAROIDYNIA (it is a form of vascular neck and face pain in which the vascular change occurs in the carotid artery in the neck).
Avatar m tn Since last week I have had the headache and neck pain is much worse radiating from the back of my head (where the two bones at the back of the head are) to my shoulders. The headache seems to be worse in the morning when I wake up and is not a constant headache. It comes and goes during the day but is at worse in the mornings and at night. I also feel nauseous a lot of times not sure if it could be related to the headache or not. The neck pain is also more like a burning type of pain.
Avatar f tn I am a 49 year old female and have had several episodes of radiating arm pain. It starts in one arm and quickly radiates down both arms lasting only a few seconds. The pain is very severe. I have no chest pain or shortness of breath. I have had an ECG, stress echo and have seen a cardiologist. Everything is normal on my stress echo. The only thing I have is hypertension. The first episode I had was approx 6 - 12 months ago. Then I had 3 episodes within a 4 week period.
10242608 tn?1408749779 See a good chiropractor, I would say you have misaligned vertebrae in your neck and the pain is radiating to your arm, etc. A few good adjustments, you will be as good as new.
Avatar f tn At the same time since you have difficulty in turning your head and pain in the neck and shoulders cervical spondylosis also needs to be excluded. Another cause could be migraine which can cause all these symptoms. Please discuss these possibilities with your neurologist. Keep us posted!
Avatar m tn There can be numerous side effects such as headaches and lower neck pain or shoulder pain, shooting pain in the neck or radiating pain down the arm and also tingling in hands and fingers. Take care!
Avatar f tn At other times the pain starts in her fingertips and rolls up through her shoulders and neck to her head. When the pain reaches her head, she ends up passing out for a minute or two. This pain started about two years ago and happened only a few times in the year. Now it's happening at least once a month - often enough that she's hesitant to drive because she might lose her ability to control the car. Her primary care physician has sent her for an MRI which showed nothing unusual.
Avatar f tn Have you tried sleeping with your head elevated? You need to support your upper back, neck and head so you don't crimp your neck if you do this. I used to have sinus problems, and this helped. But I didn't want to sleep in this position all the time. I discovered my sinus problems went away when I stopped using dairy.
Avatar n tn u seen ur gp it sounds like trapped nerve in neck i get occipital headaches which can be shooting or just severe pain radiating over base of neck over to top of head hope this is off some use
424634 tn?1277857528 The GERD pain tends to show up in the outer ears, at the same time I start getting upper-throat acidic pain. The TMD pain is in the inner ear, head, jaw, face, neck, and can radiate as low as the chest at times. You may wan to try something like Zantac (an H2 blocker) or Prilosec OTC (a Proton Pump Inhibitor) to see whether that helps symptoms. Of course, consult with your doc about this. FYI, my first symptoms of GERD were about the same as yours.

Avatar f tn I am, of course, not a doctor but the symptoms you are describing are someone with gallstones/gallbladder infection. Right shoulder pain radiating to the back are very very common signs of gallstones. You have probably have been having gallbladder attacks and that is what causes the pain - it will usually occur about 30 minutes after eating. You need to call your doctor and schedule a ultrasound of your gallbladder.
1369383 tn?1299023561 Due to various reasons, sometimes nerves which radiate from the intervertebral areas in the neck get compressed. This leads to stress on the nerve, which emanates pain in the neck and adjoining areas like shoulders, arms and fingers, and upper and lower back. Pinched nerve in neck is also known as cervical radiculopathy.
Avatar n tn I have pain radiating from below my ear (sometimes from the corner of my eye) down the left side of my neck and sometimes around to the back of the left side of my head. I have been to an ENT doctor, my dentist, and an endodontist. They say I do not have TMJ nor do I have a problem with my trigeminal nerve. They don't know what I have. I cannot take Vicodin or other strong medications, or Aleve, and ibuprofen and acetaminophen don't work very well.
Avatar f tn Please help.. I have back problems, but never have I experienced this much pain.. Monday I started to have pain in my neck. It felt like I hade a crick in it from sleeping on it wrong, but I was at Walmart when I started experiencing the pain. It got worse that night. The pain then started going down to my shoulders. When I laid down in my normal sleeping position, on my left side with my arm under my pillow, I couldn't put my arm under my pillow because the pain was so bad..
Avatar m tn It happens when you grind your teeth or clench your jaw due to anxiety, stress, or probably adderall(which tends to make me clench all day) This is the joint that connects your jaw to your head. Long term grinding causes this joint/ disc associated to inflame or irritate the muscles around it. The pain can radiate into your ear and all the way down your neck. (Mine is excruciating and I initially thought it was a horrendous ear infection.) Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn Would shoulder bursitis cause pain in the neck as well as the upper arm? Neck pain feels like a crick but much worse.
Avatar f tn I have no ides if this is an allergy but here is my question(s). When I sneeze nothing comes out it feels stuck in the center of my head head. My right ear feels full. I had a double ear infection with antibiotic cleared up felt the fullness and a bit dizzy and disoriented again but ears were fine. My neck and shoulder feel somewhat numb hard to explain I can feel them but when I eat or drink I don't feel the senstation there.
Avatar f tn Any time I cough, laugh hard, have a BM (TMI) play hard with the kids I get this sharp pain in my head temples and in the back of my head. It actually feels if my head is about to pop. 10 out of 10 pain. I have to stop what i am doing and i grab my head. it will last about 30 secs. My husband says my face turns almost dark red almost purple and it scares him. I told my doc about it and all she said is it related to my smoking.
Avatar f tn For the last 6 months, I've had chronic neck pain. Lately, it's been radiating down my right arm and has been making my right leg weak. I get major headaches in the sides of the head and the back of the head. Whenever I stand up, I get dizzy+ feel hot and it takes a minute for the room to stop spinning. Also when I go to sleep at night, I'll wake up and one of my hands will be numb, then i'll have to move it continuously until it's awake...
1200625 tn?1265344158 The neck area swells when I do any over head work where I have to bend my neck back. The swelling will usually subside within a few of days when applying heat to the area. I will post my results as soon as I receive them. Thus far though... when I asked both doctors what they propose to do about this... one usually sends me to the other. It has been a back and forth thing for the last 2 years. I am tiring of this non committal yoyoing. Thank you so much for your time.
