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.

282936 tn?1587874198 I have been getting this intermittent sharp pain on the right side of my neck , about 1-2 inches directly below my ear, for several months now. It's a sharp, stabbing pain in a very tiny area, lasting 5-10 seconds at a time. It doesn't feel like a muscle cramp. It can happen at any time, whether I'm lying in bed or sitting at my desk at work. I mentioned it to my doctor several months ago, but she seemed to dismiss it as nothing, never asking any questions about it or anything.
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 m tn Another type is cluster headaches, which are sharp pains that occur around and behind the eye often at night and are associated with tearing of the eye and running of the nose. In primary stabbing headache, sharp or jabbing pain in the head occur, either as a single stab or a series of brief repeated volleys of pain. Primary stabbing headache often occurs in people with migraine. The pain itself generally lasts a fraction of a second but can last for up to one minute in some people.
Avatar n tn I had a stent put in 8 days ago and I am getting a sharp pain on the left side under my heart. I also get a sharp pain in my back sort of behind my heart just under my shoulder blade. I have genetic cholesterol problems and the artery expanded rather than contracted causing a windmill effect in my blood stream.
Avatar n tn Dr said it was my cartid artery and gave me an injection directly in my neck (artery). Now pain is back. What is this and could it be a sign of a serious problem? I dont want another shot in the neck-i'm scared.
1385138 tn?1279928966 Clinical manifestation includes sore throat, difficult in eating, ringing in ear, unilateral facial and neck pain, and ear pain. Sometimes the elongated styloid process comes in contact with the extra-cranial internal carotid artery and leads to compression (while turning the head) leading stroke or neurological symptoms. Treatment is only surgical called partial styloidectomy.
Avatar m tn Current symptoms The dull pain in my neck is basically everywhere there is a main artery especially my occipital artery (which is where the pressure headaches seem to radiate from). The front of my neck feels tender as well and sometimes can feel it throbbing with my pulse. I have nauseu when I do anything that raises my heart rate and sometime even without. I have frequent pressure behind my eyes and a dull headache (back of head).
Avatar m tn Spontaneous Pneumothorax is when air bubbles escape out of your lung and cause pain. You may need surgery to relieve that pain. I felt a sharp pain on my left side of my chest and stuff. I don't know how to describe spontaneous pneumo, but look it up or google it. I just know that's how you call it. Hope this helped.
Avatar f tn To me it feels like i have a blockage or something being pinched off in my neck. Before i start getting the pain in my head my main artarie in my neck starts to swell and is very sore, my eye sight goes blurry and my face hands and arms go numb. Ive had migraine headaches and its nothing like it.
Avatar m tn Feeling dizzy on standing up could be due to fall in blood pressure (called postural hypotension), ear problems, cervical spondylitis and inflamed muscles in the neck (sternocleidomastoid). The latter two can also cause pain in the area between your neck and shoulder. Severe acidity with gastric reflux too can cause dizziness. Please discuss with your doctor. You will need some tests for a confirmed diagnosis. Take care!
