Pain neck back of head

Common Questions and Answers about Pain neck back of head


Avatar f tn I get a weird feeling in the back of the rounded part of my head. I know my brain can't feel itself, but I get odd sensations of vibration and tingling there. It's not usually painful, but it's distracting and unusual. I try to exercise regularly. Usually it is a low start, but once I get going I think that it does help a lot with my inflammation.
Avatar f tn For around 30 years I have suffered from occasional flare ups of pain in the back of my head, always on the left side. I have been to numerous doctors, chiropractors, physical therapy, and taken lots of pain meds but nothing helps. The flare up usually starts as a twinge and by the end of 1 wk is full blown pain that lasts another 1 -2 wks. I try heat, ice, rubs, you name it and nothing helps. I believe it is some kind of nerve pain as it is somewhat like shingle pain but no rash.
Avatar n tn In the back of my neck where the top of my neck meets the back of my head, I have a lingering pain. I also feel pain in he top of my pac and around my shoulderblades. I get tingling pains in my fingers and tensing feelings in my arms. I also feel pain in my forearms of tingling and tightening. The final place there is pain I worry about is above my ears on each side. The tingling pains in my hands are mostly at the tips or index finger. I can also feel it in my legs. What could this be?
Avatar f tn I went to the Dr yesterday. He asked me to do neck stretches every day and to take IBprofen.......he thinks I have pulled muscles. (they took my blood to test for infection) I hope it will go away soon, like I said, the head pain itself is better since I relaxed my jaw. Now I just have to heal my neck/shoulders.
Avatar n tn sometimes when pain is worse, the lower part of head(at base of scull) seems swolen all accross the back of head. The swollen area hurts slightly when pressed on. Has been going on several months.
Avatar n tn precipitation of head pain by neck movement or awkward neck positions, head pain when external pressure is applied to the neck or occipital region, restricted range of motion of the neck, and neck, shoulder and arm pain. Treatment for cervicogenic headache includes physical therapy, medications, behavioral therapy, and other modalities. Occipital neuralgia is caused by irritation or injury to two nerves that run from the upper neck to the back of the head.
Avatar n tn My problem is that for the past three days I have been experiencing pain in the back part of my head, Right above my neck. It is mainly on the right side. The pain that I am experiencing feels like the back of my head is being weighed down by something, and I also feel a little dizzy and the area where the pain is at is swollen. I did not bump my head or anything, so I do not know what could be causing this unusual pain.
Avatar n tn My neck is the worst, Real tight sensation, that radiates up into the back of my head. It is uncomfortable to turn my head from side to side. My lower back and shoulders have been achy, which comes and goes. New symptoms are cramps in lower legs and achy calves. I do read alot and have my head down but this has never happened before and I have been reading all my life. I do spend several hours a day on the computer but don't feel that is it. I take something for anxiety, so that is not it.
Avatar n tn However, I still have significant head pain at the back of my head. It could be described as a good deal of pressure at the back of my head that intensifies when I strain. When I walk, the impact of my feet on the ground makes my head and teeth hurt...I can no longer exercise due to this and the quality of my life has been greatly affected by all this. I have constant head pain...The worse part one can give me an explanation for this....
Avatar m tn However, pain in the back portion of the head and ear pain originate from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away who will evaluate the possibilities here. Hope this information proves helpful to you. Take Care & Regards!!!
Avatar n tn I wake up in the morning and I have tension or slight pain at the base of my head. Mostly on the right side then as the day progesses it can become an extrem headache. I call them migraines. If I lay down the the pain at the base of my head becomes worse. If they progess and become migraines I start to vomit I go into a the tub with hot water for about any hour to lessen the migraine. Is there anything that can help?
Avatar m tn Generally, shoulder and arm numbness originates from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, these symptoms aggravate after turning head and typically occur in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
Avatar f tn What does it mean to have massive pain in the back of your head and neck that also causes dizziness and slight fainting?
Avatar n tn i have fuild in my ears, and a hard lump on the right side of the back of the head, headaches, eye problems, neck pain and very tight muscles in my neck and shoulders.
Avatar n tn In slipped disc or disc prolapse conditions symptoms may originate due to nerve root pressure, pressure on the spinal cord and pressure on the tail bone. Common symptoms could be paralysis of muscles, head pain, pain radiating to the arms or legs, leg pain and numbness, tingling, or weakness. Warning symptoms can include loss of control of the bladder function, numbness/pain at genital areas, paralysis & spasticity of both the legs.
Avatar m tn Last night while in bed reading i suffered a severe pain in the back of my head from the base of my head up about 2 inches 50mm and around to each ear. This pain lasted for about 5 mins and thien went away. My wife tells me for about 10 to 15 secs i was shaking like i was being hit with electricity. Has anyone had this type of pain before? My Doctor thinks it is a progression of my MS.

Avatar f tn Hi, this could be occipital neuralgia, lesion of occipital nerve causing pain at the back of head. “Occipital neuralgia is caused by damage to these nerves. Ways in which they can be damaged include trauma (usually concussive), physical stress on the nerve, repetitious neck contraction, flexion or extension, and as a result of medical complications.” Taken from http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn The pain is very intense for the first few seconds, blurring my vision, then fades over a period of about 10 minutes. It occours above my neck and behind my ears, beside the squishy part of skull on the back. When this happens, I also feel a warm and tingly sensation in my ears and often hear ringing. I'm an 18 year old, healthy girl and have never had serious health problems, but this continues to worry me.
Avatar n tn I have this sharp shooting pain in the back of my head its in the lower part of my head and it shoots pain every few seconds up the right side of my head kinda toward my temple. the base of my head is sore to touch. is this somthing i shoul be conserned about. the inly way i can sleep is take tyl. pm. please give me some feed back thank you.
Avatar n tn I've had some pain in the back of my head, and my chirpractor/holistic doctor discovered that my C-1 disk (a.k.a. Atlas) was subluxated. That means the soft tissues of my neck are not holding it exactly in place where it needs to be, due to tight muscles from computing and tension and sleeping wrong. When he adjusts it the pain goes away. It is not likely related to the trigeminal nerve at all. That is the facial nerve that controls your ability to make facial expressions.
Avatar f tn Your brain (stem) can not feel pain. It has no pain receptors. The back of your head is a different issue. The occipital nerves provide feeling to the back of your head and upper neck. Occipital neuritis is pretty common with MS.
Avatar f tn Especially a Burning/ cold/ pain going down UNDER my arms. Besides the obvious lower part of my back My neck especially a spot on the left of my neck that hurts/ has a strong ***** and a place in the middle/lower part of my back that zaps me with pain if I lean my torso out or in and at times it's hard to breathe. My hands have spazzed out on me, it starts with my thumb and my whole hand gets numbish & tingly and my hand jerks in like I've stuck my finger in a light socket.
Avatar n tn I have a muscle that goes from the back of my head to the bottom of my right shoulder blade that is hurting. I have had this pain for almost 2 weeks now and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It makes it hard to sleep, work and what hurts the most is driving. Every time I turn my head from left to right or up or down it sends a sharp pain all through my shoulder. I would like to know what I can do to help with the pain until it gets better.
Avatar f tn For the last week I have been experiencing dull pain behind my right ear and back of head. This pain will also move to the top of my head. It is much worse at night. There are times during the day that it is almost gone but comes back for no apparent reason.I also have a very sore spot on the right side at the base ofmy neck. I did have cervical fusion on C 5-6-7 about 2-1/2 years ago. OTC meds do not help. Thank you for any suggestion. My GP does not know what causes it.
