Avatar f tn Hi, 24yo female! About 4 weeks ago i was admitted to hospital with severe headache & papilledema! After CT & MRI came back fine i was told i have benign intracranial hypertension, was sent home with DIAMOX tabs which seemed to ease the headaches a little!
Avatar n tn I cant open my mouth more than a half an inch and when I do open my mouth I have severe pain. This knot is very hard and its about two inches wide and one inch long. I cant even turn my head in the direction that this knot is in. The pain meds the dentist prescribed me doesnt help with the pain. My dentist said this was normal but I dont think it is, my mom had the same surgery and didnt have the knot and pain like I have. Thanks to all!
449558 tn?1205580208 thank you for replying so quickly, Yes the knot is hard,. when I touch it, it makes my shoulders feel heavy and sends a bit of pain down my neck. but I could just be touching it too much, I often try to massage the area but there are times it isn't painful to press, b it seems to have gotten a bit bigger though.
Avatar f tn Each morning the pain is quite bad between my shoulder blades. The pain is worse on the right hand side. The pain in my arms are 2 places and once again much worse on the right hand side. Upper arm and lower arm. Physio said the lower arm pain could be tennis elbow. This pain feels like the muscle weakness you experience after a heavy gym work out, starting around the area of the elbow towards the hand.
Avatar n tn I am concerned about my fiance so I am here asking this question. He has had a knot that comes and goes on the left side of his neck in the front near his throat and collar bone. It looks to be swelled up to about half the size of a tennis ball and sticks out around 1/4 inch. It brings him to his knees when rubbed down on. Does anyone know if this could be serious or needs immediate attention? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn The therapist spent FOREVER on the knot and as usual, nothing. I feel worse than before I weneed to the therapist as now the knot hurts bday and I can feel it more prominently. Is there a chance it's not a knot? What else could it be? I really would just like the pain to stop.
Avatar f tn The degenerative disc disease could be responsible for the tender knot at the back of the neck. Usually the pain causes the covering paravertebral muscles to go into a protective spasm to immobilize the injured joints to prevent further damage. You could try moist heat or ice application to relieve the muscle spasm along with NSAIDS prescribed by your physician according to your medical fitness.
Avatar m tn Hi there. I have a lump, possibly a swollen gland on the left side of my neck, close to the jaw. According to the charts it looks like the jugulodigastric node and is right on top of the jugular. My best guess to size is just over a half inch. It isn't tender, just swollen. I just quit smoking and I'm 24 years old. I'm not sure how long it has been there, though I suspect its been a while (been monitoring it for a week now). I don't have any other symptoms that I'm aware of.
Avatar m tn I've found massaging all the areas around the sore spot can be very helpful. I have a 10-day-old problem with my neck, from handstand pushups I believe, After a few days, the source of pain traveled down to what I thought was a knot somewhere behind my shoulder blade. I looked up pinched nerves, and it said commonly a nerve in the neck is what causes the back pain. I've been massaging my neck and getting better results almost immediately.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I developed a bump on the back of my neck about the size of a pea. Today its the size of a baseball and feels more like a knot with swelling around it. I've had a rash on my neck previous to this thinking it was a heat rash and I'm not sure if it's related.
Avatar f tn For years now i've had a pain at the base of my neck on the right side, it hurts if I apply slight pressure, I suffer from headaches, which if left almost always turns into a migraine but they always start at this point in my neck, it feels like a small lump, if I apply pressure to it & deep massage it it hurts like hell but does slightly ease the pain, could this be a tension knot? If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!
Avatar f tn Can a knot in the muscles near/around/of the shoulder (thoracic region) cause severe neck pain? It is difficult or maybe even impossible (due to pinching pain) to turn my head to the right. The muscle knot is also on the right side of my back. What can I do to help ease the pain and "fix" the knot in my back?
Avatar f tn This all started a year ago with just a little knot on the back of my neck to maybe having cancer! Started off as a knot on the back of my head right where necks start on the bottom of head.. then I noticed I had a tiny knot in my neck. Did some research and cancer started to pop up on the Internet.. I freaked out and anxiety went into overdrive.. doctor examined me and thought it was due to allergies..
519035 tn?1348275773 D,400 mag and Vitamin B Complex and have noticed a big improvement, I still get an ache in the r-side of my neck and a little knot in the calf of my leg once in a while, but it has improved. Maybe we get Carp Tunnel from using the keyboard!
137307 tn?1330973997 The pain is at the base of my head, where I think he probably removed the piece of skull and on the left side of my neck. My neck pain feels like the joint pain I get from lupus so I'm guessing it might be inflammation. Thinking that I got a steroid shot last week, but it didn't seem to help. I've had to increase my pain meds and barely stay awake. They've cut way down on my rehab, except speech. That's another thing.
Avatar n tn Since the extraction last week, she has been in severe pain not only where the tooth was, but also along her jaw, up the side of her face, in her neck as well as having headaches from the pain. She went back to the free clinic thinking maybe there was still an infection present. The doctor saw no signs and said he thinks it is an exposed nerve. He did give her another course of antibiotics just in case. What can be done about this problem?

Avatar f tn Well I'm 37 weeks, and my neck and my back(up top) are really messed up.. like it hurts to turn my neck or move my right shoulder. Is there anything they can do while I'm pregnant or do I just need to wait to go after the baby's born? Since this pain came I have a knot on the back of my head now too..

534618 tn?1213454476 My boyfriend has been complaining about a chest and back pain on his right side for about a week now. It came totally out of the blue. Its causing him to have constant anxiety attacks, nausea, no appetite, shakes, and he has trouble breathing at times. He says he feels like hes dying. Tuesday night he was brought to the emergency room, where he had an EKG. Everything should up fine, so the doctor put him on .25mg of clonazepam for the panic attacks.
Avatar n tn I have a brown mole that is on the neck under the area that may or may not be connected to the pain. On one side it is harder than the other. It feels like there might be a lump or swelling there as well. I don't have a sore throat or fever. Any ideas what it might be. I am going to contact my doctor tomorrow. What type of test should I ask for to be done.
Avatar m tn I guess it started when I was having ear pain (left side) and I found some kind of knot in my neck. I waited a few days to see if it would go away, it didn't so I went to the doctor. She looked in my ear, all normal, felt my neck and the knot and said she didn't feel any abnormal masses and everything felt fine. This made me feel better, but that little knot in my neck will hurt from time to time, my logical thinking says it is because I keep messing with it.
Avatar f tn I have just recently noticed, my 19 month old, has a small knot in his neck. It smaller than a pea, rolls around but seems to stay in the same general area of his neck. Its the right side, below his ear, a little lower than his hair line, but about his shoulder. He doesnt mind me touching his neck, he hasnt been running a fever or crying for any other reason than not getting his way. He isn't in pain, & has not been rubbing at his neck. He did just recently get over a cold.
Avatar m tn About 2 weeks before Christmas I developed what felt like a developed severe pain (sort of like a stiff neck but much worse) on the right side going up to where the neck/skull meet & a really bad headache in the right frontal sinus area. Advil, Ultram & Flexeril didn't help at all. Percocet 10 barely even helped. My doctor said that I had a large muscle knot/spasm on the LEFT side (top of shoulder close to my neck) that actually was causing visible shortening there.
Avatar n tn it has gotten bigger over the past week. It is very sore. Then just two days ago i found a knot in my neck and it is very sore.
Avatar m tn At the very bottom of my right ribs, underneath a sharp stabbing like pain, and the right of the neck, top of shoulder kinda also recieves a sharp pain. Both sharp pains last only a minute if that. I usually walk around and just wait for it to leave. Only happens when i yawn or deep breathe and lasts not even a minute. Happens maybe once or twice if that a day. but after the pain leaves im back to feeling absolutly fine again.
