Common Questions and Answers about Sore neck under jaw

sore

Avatar m tn So I have a lump or inflammation of what I presume is a gland between my large neck muscle and under the back of my jaw line. Last week I was ok but developed a sore throat and headaches late last week and by the weekend I had a sore throat, vomited once and developed a sore neck and this lump all in the space of a day. I dunno what it is but if I turn my neck now it's not that painful but before it felt like I had strained a muscle in my neck and the lump itself is quite tender to touch.

If so, use a massage vibrator from behind the ear, to down under the jaw, working your way to where the clavicle meets the base of the neck next to the esophagus. I tend to see this in people that have stress build up or too much caffeine in their diet. You should see swelling (which is probably just the muscle in a contracted state) go down in a few days or sooner.
393685 tn?1425812522 Does anyone else out there have or had a terrible sore neck? it hurts so much in the back. Mythroat feels like I can't swollow where it feels like that little adam's apple won't move. even my jaw hurts. I went to the ENT - he wants to see the actual US films . I called the pharmacist and he said prednisone should not be the cause of any pain I am having. Would this nodule cause so mych pain ? adn IF it spread to lymph node could this be my pain too.
Avatar n tn Well I started biting down on my jaw (left side only) and now the muscles on jaw and in my neck on my left side twitch. Of course I have the jaw pain and ear pain associated with the biting down on my jaw. But I have never had muscle twitches in my neck. Anyone have any answers?
Avatar m tn and become sore/painful when left in this state (yes, it can occur on just one side and progress down the shoulder and in some cases all the way to the fingers). Press under the corner of your jaw (by your ear) to feel if it is unusually tender.
Avatar f tn Lymph nodes can be found in a variety of places in the body including the neck and under the jaw and chin. These can become swollen from infection, inflammatory conditions, abscess, or even cancer. When swelling appears suddenly and is painful, injury or an infection ( which is the most common cause) may be considered. On the other hand, enlargement that comes on gradually and painlessly may, in some cases, result from malignancy.

Avatar m tn The minute I left his place, I felt sick. Since then, my neck nodes have been either sore or tender, with my throat being irritated. This pain radiates up and down the sides of my face. I first thought it might be sinus drainage, but the pain is still with me (Today is Dec. 10). Recently (last few days) I have had pain in my jaw muscles, but throat pain had subsided. No fever (slightly elevated), rash, or diarrhea ever within the past two weeks.

Avatar m tn Because it not like there is a lump poking out underneath my jaw but I just have this uncomfortable feeling under my jaw sometime and my neck feels hot.
Avatar n tn Usually they give patients antibiotics and pain medications. Some pain and swelling are to be expected, but if you think it's more than expected or you are not on antibiotics, give the dentist a call to report your symptoms.
497990 tn?1210076345 My jaw has become sore and hurts to try and hold it open. It cracks when I open it slightly. There are bones right under my earlobe on each side, right next to my jaw (they feel roundish) that hurt to touch. I sometimes have like a flare up when it will be terribly painful (like a headache but more in my jaw and around ears) and the next day it feels like a giant bruise all around jaw, ears, and to almost corner of my eyes.
Avatar n tn Wednesday my doctor called and said that I had a large nodule come up on my thyroid sonogram. He is doing a biopsy on the 19th. I felt fine as far as physical symptoms go. He then told me that my urine test showed bacteria so he put me on antibiotics. I started them Wednesday evening. Ever since I got the call I have been really stressed, depressed, upset and just going nuts in general. The slightest thing makes my eyes swell up with tears.
Avatar f tn I have a sore very tense neck n had a sore throat , I also as of the last 3 days been having a jaw with quiet a heavy tense feeling .
Avatar f tn ) My pain and lumps are primarily associated with my right side of my jaw ear and neck area. Often times the whole side of my neck feels tight and swollen on the inside and under my tongue as well. I feel like something is pressing on nerves causing tingling soreness and discomfort. I asked the doctor if antibiotics would be a consideration for treatment 6 months ago and I got the talk about the over use of antibiotics. I have still not taken any type of antibiotics in regard to this problem.
Avatar m tn A couple of weeks ago I noticed a swollen lymph node under my right jaw bone curve. It was painful to the touch, including painful sensation/sore throat when swallowing, in the general area. I didn't experience any type of severe symptoms, such as night sweats or fever. A friend who is an oral surgeon put me on amoxicillin and the pain subsided. He also inspected my throat and said my tonsils were a bit swollen as well.
5887486 tn?1376104591 Hi, just last night, I was laying in bed, and rolled to my right side, and as I turned my head over on my pillow, I noticed it was painful. Today. I've noticed it all day, there is a slight lump on the right side under my jaw. It is moveable, and isn't excruciating just yet. When I apply pressure, or face my head downwards, it gets very sore. I am very curious to know if this is heard of commonly or not, and if it is a serious problem. Thank you!
Avatar m tn the left side of my neck hurts toward the side (main muscle/tendon going down from the jaw to the shoulder, and under my jaw, from what I can tell is inside my jaw. there are ridges on my jaw towards my chin that hurt, and also the space in between my jaw hurts. Don't know if it is glandular or tmj related. odd stuff. Cannot see my doc until next Thursday. anything that I can do?
Avatar n tn I have been getting cramps in my neck left side right under the base of my head, I have also been cramping under my chin - the muscles under my tong sometimes when I open my mouth to laugh or yawn and sometimes just for no reason - only with movement I will cramp there and it is painful and is also only in my right side - is like I know if I move or do something will triger it. Please excuse my spelling.
