Pain neck turn head

Common Questions and Answers about Pain neck turn head


Avatar n tn Woke up this morning with severe neck pain and cannot turn my head left or look up. There is swelling at the base of my neck. My left side is week and there is pain in my shoulder, elbow and hand on pinky side. Nsaids and Muscle relaxant no help, and one percocet no help. I have used heat all day and it has not improved. Could it be just tortocollis or is there a chance something is messed up below my fusion? I am so uncomfortable and scared that this could mean something is wrong.
Avatar f tn The problem is that now the pain is down in my neck and I can hardly turn my head from side to side. The pain feels almost like a burning pain in my neck and major stiffness. I don't see how sinus problems could last for this many months. Can sinus issues also make your neck hurt and be stiff? I don't know where to turn next. The neck pain and the ear noise is definitely getting on my nerves. Does anyone know what could be going on?
Avatar m tn Have had ongoing and constant headache for over 2 weeks now. Back of neck very sore and if I put pressure and turn neck I hear crunching sound. Headaches radiate from back of head & include temples at times, not in only one area. Taking pain pills including x-stenght tynol which dull pain but do not take away. I do have only one catiod artery as was closed off by Dr. 3 years ago due to infection.Pain does not go away reguardless of what I have tried... please help if you can.
Avatar n tn I have been having neck, shoulder, and pain in the back of my head for about 2 years, The pain in the back of my head is severe enough to where it hurts to sleep on it or turn my head, I get migraines with my cycle but these are different. I feel dizzy often It is mostly on my left side of my head and neck and shoulder. My headaches are everyday, nothing makes them better all the way. I have taken pain killers, motrin.. nothing works. I exercise my neck and shoulders but still no relief.
Avatar n tn I have a muscle type pain in both sides of my neck, it doesn't matter which way I turn my head it hurts. The pain goes from the neck to my head. I can feel my head where the pain runs up to and press on the point and it hurts as well. This is with both sides. I do work on a computer alot, but my computer is set up ergonomically. This pain even hurts when I am laying down. I have to try to get my head and neck in the most comfortable position I can. Neither of my arms hurt or are numb.
Avatar m tn And today i found 2 lumps on my right side of my neck but only when i turn my head. the first thing it made me think of was it looked like my spine on the side of my neck. silly i know. it hurts to move my head, hurts even to lay my head down on a pillow. What could this be? Should i make a doctors appointment for this or just tough it out?
Avatar f tn For the past four days, I have experienced these odd symptoms that are becoming more and more unbearable. My upper neck has been hurting, but I have this odd burning pain when I turn my head or when I try to lift something even. Feels like a hot poker's being inserted there. But I also have this pain in the back of my head, on the right side, an area maybe an inch in diameter that's very tender, especially to touch. No headache, just a tenderness to touch, very sore.
Avatar f tn However after doing this when i turn my head in a clockwise circle my neck cracks every time. The pain is not really bad all of the time but it is constantly there like a heavy feeling. and certain times of the day it gets worse. Any ideas what this could be. i can't get to see my GP til next tuesday.
1187071 tn?1279373298 I am not sure what I did but when I got up this morning, I turned my head and got a really bad pain in my neck and it is sharp and it goes all the way up the back up my head, and it makes my head hurt. I have never had a pain like this before and with it being my neck and head it scares me. I don't know if I should wait it out and see if it goes away or get it check out. Any advice would be great.
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 f tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Generally pain in the back portion of the head and neck pain originate from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine since the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, this kind of head pain aggravates after turning head and typically occurs in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
666921 tn?1254994218 I currently refer to my neck as "popcorn neck." It crackles when I move it, and while that could be Father Time marching on, the correlation between the loudness of my neck and illness makes me think it's more likely Lyme related. After I started treatment, I did notice a worsening in neck pain (which is now gone, it's more just stiff/loud now).
Avatar n tn I am six months post op from anterior cervical diskectomy at C4-5 and C5-6. I am now suffering from CERVICAL RADICULOPATHY AND OCCIPITAL PAIN. I believe my surgery is wonderfully successful and I feel that my neurosurgeon did a fabulous job! HOWEVER, after recovering from the surgery for six weeks, I returned to my job in a doctor's office, only to have severe pain beginning at the top of my head, radiating down my neck, right shoulder, arm and into my right hand and fingers!
Avatar n tn My husband had a mild TBI 3 months ago. He fell and landed on his head, on the left side. Skipping the details of damage inside the brain, he now has a "stiff neck". He can't turn his head far to the left or right. When the emergency crew got to him, he said "my neck, my neck, my neck". No cervical vertrabrae were broken. T2 and a a lot of ribs were broken. There's been a large team of doctors, but some loss of communications along the way.

Avatar n tn Lymph nodes in back of head/neck so swollen and painful I don't want to turn or move my head
Avatar n tn I started having mild neck pain in 2007 which was probably caused by lack of sleep due to loss of a close family member in July of 07, after which I had to work stressful 12 hours shifts which only increased the neck pain.
Avatar f tn About 4 weeks ago, pain in left side of neck occurred. It was hard to turn head and drive. I thought I had an ear infection so I receive an anti-biotic from my doctor without a visit. Pain is getting worse and I am nausea off and on. What do you think is the problem?
Avatar n tn I have just completed one set of sit-ups and as I was going to lie down to start my second set I felt a sharp pain on the back of my neck, I believed I have pull a muscle as my neck felt very uncomfortable, it is stiff and if I look down or turn left/right it hurt very bad. Is this something I should worry about and contact my doctor asap?
Avatar n tn started with severe neck pain that radiated to back of head on left side. Had therapy and made worse. Neck and back of head now hurts when I turn it right or left or up or down. Back of head hurts at base of scull all the way accross back of head with slightest movement. 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 f tn MY DAY BEGINS BY WAKING UP WITH PAIN IN MY JOINTS AND NECK? IT FEELS LIKE WHEN EVER I TURN MY HEAD MY NCEC STARTS CREAKING AND POPPING, AND MY JOINTS IN MY FINGERS, WRISTS, ANKELS,LEGS BEOME STIFF AND HARD TO MOVE. (it feels at first like numb, no circulation, no lubrication in my joints, pain when moving neck, legs, wrists, etc.. .. creaking and popping sounds coincide with the pain) SO FEELS LIKE IM 100 YRS OLD BUT JUST DONT KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN IT?
778037 tn?1377989800 After the sugery pain subsided, I was free from the head/neck/shoulder pain for about a month. Since then, the pain has gotten worse, however two additional locations have started to hurt. It is now on the side of my head (between my eye and ear) and deep in my neck. It has accelerated to a boiling point, much like it did right before I was referred to the ENT who performed my surgery. I feel like my body is trying to tell me something. I have the pain all day; morning, noon and night.
Avatar n tn For about 3 months I have had a lot of pain in my neck. When I turn my head to the left, I can feel the joints "click, click". Then when I turn my head back, it clicks back, Both movements are painful. I have been to the chiropractor and for massage therapy. Is this a pain management problem? a disc problem? a surgical problem? I work at office work and at a computer. Thanks for any help.
Avatar n tn I have alot of neck pain it also goes into the base of my head and across my shoulders. I had an xray & the report reads- slight reversal of normal lordotic curvature. Degenerative disk narrowing and end-plate osteophyte formation C4-C5, C5-C6.No obvious frature or subluxation. What does this mean. What options are there. I've done P.T. and Chro. not much help. My neck has continued to give me problems. I wake in night and in the am, I can not turn my head.
Avatar n tn I have these EXACT same symptoms right now and am trying to figure out what the heck is wrong. i have postnasal drip (sinus drainage) daily, and it's chronic. nothing will take it away, and I'm taking zyrtec everyday starting tomorrow and hoping that will help. Claritin didn't do a thing for me, neither did antibiotics...
Avatar n tn It originates from the tendons that reach from my right shoulder up the side of my neck and into the back of my head, but only when I turn my head to the right. And when I rub that tendon for a few moments the pain decreases, it is really weird because I thought that this shouldn`t last this long, for one thing I am only 18.
Avatar n tn I know this is the probable cause, but it just concerns me that it's lasted this long...the pain isn't actually in my neck, it's more of the base of my head on the sides and hurts when I turn it any way. could this be something I need to get checked out by a doctor, or will it go away on its own?
