Avatar n tn Although I have had 2 surgeries on my cervical spine for ruptured discs and lax ligaments (am now fused from C3-C6), I am now told that I have significant osteoarthritis at C1-C2 (atlanto-axial joint) Accupuncture did relieve a lot of the associated muscle spasms but I still get bone pain sometimes even at the base of my skull. I've also wrenched the left side of my neck twice in the past 6 weeks at work.
408795 tn?1324939275 I have extensive Osteoarthritis in my upper back and neck from an accident I was in over 20yrs ago. I had an accident and I broke my right leg and my left arm. As a result my right leg is slightly bowed and therefore around a half inch shorter than my left leg. As a result it has affected my back and neck. Lately my legs have been swelling and itching, mostly the left. I certainly feel it's all related to my right leg injury.

Avatar n tn It would be unlikely for osteoarthritis to present with this many symptoms. You may want to look at a more systemic disorder - including rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus or other rheumatological disease. Blood tests looking at the ANA level and rheumatoid factor can be considered. Imaging the spine with an MRI can be done to evaluate for any nerve compression. A referral to a rheumatologist can be considered to evaluate for the aforementioned conditions.

1422878 tn?1284588193 Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! In all probability you have osteoarthritis or spondylosis of cervical vertebrae. This causes compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, herniated disc, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc. A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. Please consult a neurologist. The treatment is to remove the compression.
1378381 tn?1444869615 I have some of these symptoms too. I have always been saying that my head hurts , but not just in my head , but around the neck . I did not know how to explain it though.. It hurts really bad when I move around while standing , sitting, or laying down..
1378381 tn?1444869615 Also in addition to your head/neck pain, you may well also have a sinus problem from the other symptoms. If it is a sinus infection, that can be treated with antibiotics. I would see a doctor about all of your symptoms. There are many, many treatments for headaches/migraines. If you have any comments or questions after you see a doctor, be sure to post back. Hope this will help you.
Avatar n tn So while studies suggest those of us with HCV as a whole may have a higher incidence of some of the symptons, on an individual basis it's very hard to know whether what you have is being caused by the virus or whether you'd be that way anyway. Hope this helps and btw there are no doctors here.
Avatar f tn I don't have any pain in my neck but the back of my head hurts constantly and the muscles on my neck are a bit swollen. I'd appreciate your thoughts, Thank you for your time!
Avatar f tn I have arthritis in most of my joints, but I have more than one type of arthritis too. If you are looking for symptoms of osteoarthritis in the neck, they include pain, stiffness, tenderness, weakness, tingling or soarness in the arms, headaches and even balance problems.
254714 tn?1316616955 he is suggesting an mri of your neck be done with constrast. you likely have a goiter and you have a sinus infection. you also have Spondylosis (spinal osteoarthritis) is a degenerative disorder that may cause loss of normal spinal structure and function. you have this is mltiple areas of your cervical spine. i'm not a dr, but i think that's about right. hope it helps you. good luck!
Avatar f tn I had a cervical spine injury several months ago (banged my neck on some machinery) that gradually lead to a straightening of my neck (shown by xray). I was not able to move my neck at all at first, and had pain and tingling down my arm, and a stabbing pain in my shoulder blade. Worst of all was the vertigo and head pressure. CT's showed no bulging discs. Muscle relaxers have helped, but the pressure in my head never went away and is becoming maddening.

Avatar f tn I have been having a lot of issues with my neck and back. My symptoms started when I was 22, 7 years ago. It started when I woke up one day and had this pressure on one side of my neck, right under the base of my skull and behind my ear. I had this constant feeling of needing to stretch or crack my neck all day. Well this feeling never went away. Eventually I got the pressure on the other side of my neck as well.
Avatar n tn No one has even looked at the base of my neck. I do have adult onset scoliosis and osteoarthritis in my neck and back. I am going to have another type of injection in about a month. I will update this post as I hear more.
Avatar m tn The pain is caused by irritation or injury to the nerves, which can be the result of trauma to the back of the head, pinching of the nerves by overly tight neck muscles or compression of the nerve as it leaves the spine due to osteoarthritis. Treatment usually includes physiotherapy of the neck, neck massage, local anesthetic or steroid nerve blocks and medications which are used for nerve related pain (e.g Neurontin).
Avatar m tn lately, for about the past two weeks, I have had a pain that is sharp in nature on the left side of my neck. Its not surface pain, but rather inside of the neck, closer to my esophagus than anything, but it feels very sharp. I have seen a chiro before about back/posture issues, but just wondering if anyone else has had this or not. Im 32 and in relatively good health.
Avatar n tn Is one of the symptoms of an anxiety disorder a nervous chest? I constantly get butterflies in my stomach and chest, I have had heart tests and everything is fine. I am on Paxil 20 mg that cleared up the insomnia, crying spells, trouble swallowing na d dizziness (for the most part). It is my busy season at work and I am getting the chest nervousness and discomfort as well as neck aches. Is this common with anxiety? Even though I am on 20 mg Paxil? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I have seen different Dr's for some of these symptoms, but they just say that they don't know what is causing this or they act like I am a hypochondriac because I "look" healthy so I don't bring it up to them anymore. My mother (78 years old) and several siblings have most of these same symptoms.
627017 tn?1222128667 non- narcotic pain relievers, epidural between the discs, epidural into the muscles on the side of the neck and one more thing that I can't remember. I tried them all and none worked. so where do I go from here? I was wondering too if anyone has discovered a connection between anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds and pain in the muscles. i take both and went online this morning and discovered some information that there may be a link.
Avatar n tn I thought I had Rheumatoid Arthritis, but the blood test is negative, so they say osteoarthritis and spinal degeneration. I have bad joint pain in both knees, hands and my fingers, neck with herniated discs, bone spurs in feet, carpal tunnel, elbow tendonitis (at least they say that's what it is), you name it. In addition I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and hypothyroid also. I'm 51, actually will be 52 tomorrow, lol.
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.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I am a 35 year old female who has had numerous medical symptoms for at least 10 years which have been getting increasingly worse, especially in the last year. I get continuous headaches which range from dull to excruciating. I have had two worst headaches ever in the past year where I felt like I was dying. For the last 6 years I get a funny feeling through my head and I feel close to passing out (Feels like a wave, or a black blanket going through my head).
424634 tn?1277861128 I can only assume it's from my neck, but If each nerve only deals with one area of the body, why am I getting this pain again? I thought the fusion resolved this area.
1280306 tn?1271271386 A couple of days went by feeling pretty good then all of the sudden felt an extreme head pressure and a swelling in the side of neck! I thought maybe my sinus infection had come back but CT scans showed no sinus problems,ears clear.The ENT did agree that I had soft tissue swelling in the side of my neck (where the cartoid artery would be). Had another contrast CT scan on the side of my neck. Showed mild swelling and that was all.
