Avatar n tn I forgot about it until yesterday when I was showering washing behind the ears with soap when I felt two more lumps (that are not painful) behind the ear on the neck area. I am Hypothyroid and last year I was experiencing throbbing in the ear. They ran tests and found I have a very small lump on my thyroid not to be alarmed too small for biopsy. For the past 8 months or so I have been experiencing pain in the ear when I sleep on that side.
Avatar m tn It could be something as simple as a blocked pore behind your ear, that just needs to be emptied somehow. I get them occasionally, and they can tend to be a royal pain in the neck, until it is gone, but it would be a good idea to have it looked at, before trying to do anything with it yet.
626278 tn?1221946201 My mom just began to get really bad pain behind her left ear (she's in her 40's). It started when she woke up and doesn't seem to get any better. Nothing is swollen. She said that it hurts to open her jaw all the way as well. And that it almost feels like she has a kink in her neck. What would you diagnose this as? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPREACIATED!!!
Avatar n tn I was having severe shooting pain behind my ear and the ear was sore to the touch. I thought I was having a stroke. The doctor said it was shingles and ask if I had a rash. No, i didn't. He put me on Valtrax and said to take the pain meds. already prescribed for me. Over the week-end, I slept for almost 2 days and felt as if I would die with the flu like symptons.
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 ā€œVā€, and they are primarily helpful in rotation, flexing and extension of the head.
Avatar f tn I started having a sharp pain behind my left ear yesterday. I'd say the pain lasts no more than 1-2 seconds but it is occurring every few minutes. I have taken 3 Advil and a half a Vicadin within the last 24 hours with no relief. I have a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders and back between the shoulder blades. I never have headaches. This pain seems to pulse down the left side of my neck. Anyone had a diagnosis for anything similar?
Avatar f tn For two days now I have been having a sharp stabbing pain behind my left ear which lasts for only a second but occurs at least every 30 seconds. I have had no head injury. It hurts really bad (8/10) when it is occurring but when it is gone I have no other symptoms.
Avatar f tn I have swollen lymph nodes behind the ear in the neck and one in the shoulder. The left ear lobe is swollen and red. I informally saw a doctor the first day this came on and he prescribed amoxicillin and antibiotic ointment. It is now the third day and I feel worse. The sores look the same, no better or worse and the swelling is the same, but the pain is significant. Sharp shooting pains in ear and base of head. I would say this was a middle ear infection but the sores are throwing me off.
Avatar f tn Have a hard lump behind my right ear.
1748247 tn?1311799602 For the past 3 days now I have been having a pain radiating from behind my left ear down to my left side of my neck. It is swollen and hot to the touch. I have taken some Advil for the pain, and that does not seem to be doing anything for it. I have i ced it and the pain is still there. I have discovered that there is a lump right under the ear where the jaw connects. That whole side of my face is swollen, hot and painful.
Avatar m tn On Sunday I noticed it had got really big (visible, about pea sized) and then found another one at the top of my neck too. The one behind my ear is hard and painless and the one on my neck feels bigger and softer and is a bit tender.
Avatar m tn The last few days that area also feels like it is getting a hard lump under my skin, but this lump is not sore,warm like the boil behind my ear. My right side upper shoulder/neck is also sore. When I turn my head right it is sore. I'm not really sure what this all means. Do you think I should go to the doctor?

Avatar n tn I also notice that my left side of my neck, behind the ear, bottom base of the skull and down my neck hurts. soreness. When I move my neck to the right side, it's sore....can this also be a sign of a sinus infection? I'm tired of feeling this way.

611254 tn?1223914841 Because I'm a mess, I don't know what to 'fix' first. I was recently diagnosed with C5-6 Cervical Degenerative Disk Disease, C3-4 Cervical Arthritis, C6-7 bulging disk in my neck and C3-4 Spondylitic disease. Therefore I have terrible neck and shoulder pain as well as a chronic headache that bands the lower back of my head from ear to ear. Aleve, Advil and Tylenol isn't helping with my pain nor my headaches.
Avatar m tn I have been having spot pain behind my ear and also a stiff neck for a long time. I get a headache once in 10 days. it starts from my neck from the base hair line and is present only on the right side of my head. i also feel increased acidity in my stomach sometimes. 2 aspirin normally helps me with this pain and the headache lasts for 1 night. I am worried as the frequency of the headache has increased recently. the spot pain behind my ear was not there before.
Avatar n tn I found a lump behind my ear. It is hard and doesnt hurt at all. Its strange in shape and not irratated at all. its been almost a month. I am concerned especially because I am a smoker and its close to my neck.
Avatar f tn HI, I have recently noticed that i have a lump behind my right ear, it hurts to touch and is giving me pain down my neck and in my wrist. I am also having ear pain. can anyone help? thank you.
Avatar f tn But, aside from that I have had a bump behind my hear for about a year. (its not on the ear itself, its on the bone behind the ear.) And they said it was a cyst and gave me antibiotics, and they made it worse. And the doctor said it wasn't my lymps. It will swell up and i will get dizzy and light headed and have alot of severe pain, and then the next day it will be fine. so... I have no idea whats going on.
804382 tn?1237990613 Hello my name is A.J. About a year ago I noticed a small hard unmoveable lump behind my right ear.. (between my ear and my hair line of my neck) I wasn't to worried about it until about two weeks ago when my wife was able to SEE IT. I haven't been touching it a whole lot cause I figured it was probably a lymph node, and I didn't want to irratate it. It doesn't hurt and it is now about the size of a nickel.... can someone please give me an idea what is going on?
Avatar f tn A week ago I started feeling pain in one specific spot behind my left ear and up about an inch. When I press on it, I can feel it pulsating. It has been hurting 24 hours a day for about a week now. Ibuprofin dampens the pain a little. Stress or certain physical movement seems to make it worse. Sometimes the pain radiates toward my eye, and sometimes lower down my neck, but always that one specific spot behind the ear is the most painful.
Avatar m tn Well, the carotid artery runs up the side of the neck, so that is what you are feeling, and it is supposed to pulse, of course. Now, as for pain above that area, that could be from muscle strain or an irritated nerve or some sort of headache. Carefully but firmly massage both sides of your spine in your neck, then really do a good job of massaging the shoulder muscles on the top-back of them that extend out from both sides of the neck, this helps muscle strain.
Avatar n tn I have extreme pains down my neck, (mainly on the right side). My neck constantly pops now. My ear pain is much more intense, and now, my right nostril is very sensitive and it is acually painful to breathe through my nose because of this. My entire right side of my face is terribly painful constantly, and I have not slept through a night in months. I am tired, and depressed. My doctors dont know what to make of it, and there are no medications able to help me right now.
