Sore neck knot

Common Questions and Answers about Sore neck knot


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 It comes an goes, after about a week the swelling will go down an its barely noticeable and not sore at all but then other times it swells to about the size of a pea, an is very tender a sore, when moving neck a certain way, waking up in the morning etc. Are there lympnodes in the back of that area? or could it be a cyst or a muscle knot?
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 f tn I initially thought it was a knot in my muscle, but now I have swollen neck glands with no sore throat.
Avatar f tn Yesterday morning, I woke up and the back of my head and neck was sore was sore, on the right side. I felt it and there is a marble sized bump. It is pretty hard, and not easily moved. Today it's about the same size, and still a little sore. What could it be?
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 n tn If you are still experiencing this pain, then possibly seeing a chiropractor would help, you may have some misplaced vertebrae in your neck, actually, they can cause a knot if they are pressing on nerves.
Avatar n tn About a month ago I noticed my left bicep felt strange down towards the crease of my elbow...kind of weak/sore...almost like there was a knot in it. I hadn't done any exercising...just my usual daily routine. My arm started twitching a lot. Immediately I was terrified I had some crazy disease. I had an EMG/NCV and all came back normal. All my blood work looks normal too. My arm still feels strange though. It just feels weak/shaky, but no actual clinical weakness.
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 m tn I once found a similar "knot" on the bottom in back of my neck. It turned out to be a sebaceous cyst (covering over a cyst with a normal body tissue that we have) Another reassurance the doctor told me that if it was moveable, it was a good sign. I could finger the outline and was able to slide it around in very short distances. It never got larger. I forgot about it. Years later I realized that it went away. This is just a comment, not a diagnosis is intended.
Avatar n tn Yesterday I felt a knot on my neck at the base of my skull and today it hurts to turn my neck either way. What could this be?
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..
Avatar n tn Other symptoms included feeling a nerve stretch when raising arm all the way up and a big knot on my collar bone, I had that same kind of knot on the right side of the stem of my neck as well where it felt like it was swollen. 4 months later I tried pt for a month it did nothing. one month after showed a labral tear in the rear bottom side and a cyst. I am trying to workout again but it hurts to curl. It feels like my nerves are stretching too much at full extension.
Avatar f tn For the past week I have had light bleeding but I figured this is because I continued my active birth control pills and skipped my period. But I noticed I was a little sore down there. I haven't had sex in awhile so it couldn't be from that. As I felt to see what it is it feels like a big knot under my's at the very bottom of my vagina and almost under the skin that's between the vagina and the anus. It's sore when I push on it.
Avatar f tn Two days ago I noticed a quarter dollar sized hard knot under my skin on my lower inner leg, just below my calf. The knot doesn't have any puncture wounds and I didn't bump or bruise my leg on anything. What could it be? The spot has a slight reddish tint and is sore to the touch. Help please!!!

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 n tn t remember having a knot, but mine was always red and sore... it actually stays sore for several days.. good luck with it all!!
Avatar f tn However none of them are listening to me when I say my headaches start at that knot on my neck. Does anyone have any ideas?
Avatar m tn Suddenly I am having muscles soreness in a few random spots on my body. It started in the heels of my feet, it isn't my whole foot, just one particular spot by the heel. I haven't bought new shoes or anything recently, or been standing anymore than usual. It is the exact same spot on both feet, and there does not appear to be any bruising or anything. This started about a week ago. A day or so after, my right shoulder started hurting very badly.
Avatar f tn Hey can someone please help me?? This all started on March 12th when I noticed my neck felt funny.. so I rubbed the back of my head right over top of the neck where it meats the head .. I notice I had a knot there. So I really paid it no mind until a few days later it didn't go away.. so I started to get a lil worried and started checking my neck and head for knots about a 3-4 days later I notice a knot in my neck so I mad a doctor's appointment.
Avatar n tn I have had a slight headache off and on...and neck and back....and a sore lt ARM....and a knot it seems in the fever....and the doctor said my throat and mouth look fine....but I'm paranoid...
Avatar f tn s not terribly tender but feels a slight but sore after I touch it.
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 f tn I'm a 36yr old male with a damaged upper trapzius muscle with several knots that go down in to shoulder blade. The biggest knot is in the neck, i'd been experiencing flashes of light in vision prior to finding out about the muscle damage. One afternoon I turned my head to the left and felt a pinch in the neck with a weird sensation ( like when putting tongue on a 9v battery ) which went through neck in to head then I had the flash of light in vision for a good 5-10 minutes.
Avatar f tn I am 12wks pregnant my breast was very sore in the being but went away but now my left breast is really sore I also feel a knot in it... should I be worried do I need to call my doctor...
