Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain when looking up


Avatar m tn I get dizzy when looking down when reading and then I get nausea. I also get light headed when I cough or sneeze . Is this normal for chiari. Forgot to mention I recently noticed my bottom lip goes numb.
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 This comes and goes but I have deep pain toward the top of my head when blinking, closing eye or looking up only in my left eye.
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 Tonight I threw an object up above my head while of course looking up and had an excruciating pain, jolt like electric and then both my arms from the elbow down thru my thumbs feel like my veins are popping and my inner forearm thru my thumbs cannot bear to be touched. Is this a pinched nerve? Is it a blood clot. It feels as tho I have something tied around both arms cutting off circulation.
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.
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 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!
Avatar m tn t neurological. Next morning when he got out of bed the pain (head and Neck) was so bad when he was standing he had to lay back down. The pain goes away when he lays down. Before we left for to go get the CT scan he was sitting in the chair for a few minutes and starting to throw up. He had to lay in the back seat to travel to get the CT Scan. Neurologist office called me and said to take him to the ER because his symptoms were changing. We to ER they took a CT, MRI,MRA all negative.
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 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 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 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 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.
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 Not just that, it also makes me feel dizzy and nauseated too..I have to keep looking down and then up again, if I have to look up at something (first noticed how bad it was when I went to my son's class after surgery and was trying to look at some of his artwork displayed up on the wall). Honestly, I do think this may have been more noticeable after surgery... I totally understand the frustration of still having a number of symptoms after surgery...
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?
Avatar n tn 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. She also has crackling in her jaw which has been diagnosed as tmj and numbness both sides of her face, although no paralysis.. She has seen our local gp who seems to dismiss it as nothing more than old age. (she is only 58!!
Avatar n tn For the past week or so, every time I stand up I get extremely strong headaches in what feels like my left temple. They will last for 15-30 seconds then go away until the next time I stand up. I've tried standing up more slowly, but it still happens. When I get the headache, it feels like it's pulsing with pain every time I take a step. I also have a minor sore throat.
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 m tn The "sternocleidomastoid muscles" are most likely those which are giving you radiating pain from ear down to neck/shoulder/arm(Google for picture of this muscle if unfamiliar with its location). There are two of these muscles in the superficial layers of the anterior (front) portion of the neck that make the shape of a “V”, and they are primarily helpful in rotation, flexing and extension of the head.
Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone has leg pain like mine. When up and about I'm fine when going to bed the pain wakes me and keeps me from sleep.
