Common Questions and Answers about Stiff neck sore glands


Avatar m tn Im 34 yr. old, healthy. 3 weeks ago I woke up with a stiff neck. At first I thought I slept wrong. After a couple days and still having the stiffness I changed my pillow. The stiffness continued and the soreness seem to gradually move from my left side to the back of my neck. There is areas that feel tight. During this time from the soreness to touch and pain when I turned it would make me have headaches. (which I am taking ibuffren all day to maintain normal activity).
Avatar n tn Hi - I recently did something incredibly stupid. On a post-breakup trip to Vegas, I had a drunken hookup with someone I don't know. I performed oral sex on him for literally about 5-10 seconds without a condom (not to completion). Things escalated and we started to have sex. It only lasted about 2-3 minutes before I wised up and got out of there, but he was really rough and I bled quite a bit. He didn't ejaculate inside me, but he didn't use a condom either. I know...STUPID.
Avatar n tn 4 days ago, I woke up with a bad sore throat, very swollen and painful neck glands, stiff and sore back of neck and bad headache, dizziness, fatigue, and fever. I also was hurting all over--including my skin. It progressively got worse (except the headache and generalized aching) and I finally went to the doctor 2 days ago. I was tested for strep and it came back positive. I was given pennicillin. My question is about my stiff/ sore neck. It hurts to turn it either way. Both sides hurt.
Avatar m tn 72 hours later I was on PEP which I completed without any major symptoms, 1 week after completing the PEP treatment I got a stiff neck (lower back of neck) with a mild but consistent heache... a bit like when you sleep too much. My GP said that it might be from stree but it's not been like this for 3 weeks and I am begining to worry that it is more serious. I dont have a fevel, or swolen glands there's no rashes or any other symptoms. Could this be a sign of HIV?

Is this a big symtom of sjogren's? Thanks for the information on your mom's condition and symptoms. Santana8 To Free spirit The stiff neck started about three months after the onset two years ago.

Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 46 year old woman who got shingles in my back last August (over a year ago) and last sept got a fever and swollen lymph glands. after that I got a stiff neck and have been unable to move it normally for a year. In the early days I felt like I had fluid in my head and one night the pain was so bad I couldn't put my head on the pillow and ended up in hospital. They gave me diazepan which helped abou 60% but then it came back.

Avatar n tn Hi. Since Friday, May 3rd, 2002, I have had very sore glands in my neck. It feels like only one is inflamed on the left side, but on the right side, I can feel two, and the pain is more on the right side. My body only vaguely hurts, and I have a negligible fever. My neck is somewhat stiff from being horizontal with a pillow for the past few days. My nose is not running, I have sneezed twice in the past few days [and it hurt!], and I have no spots on my glands. Please help me out here!
Avatar f tn I have had early in the mornings sore neck muscles, palpitation, tremor and sweating. I have no sweating during daytime. I don't know whether these are due to overmedication (Thyroid Erfa) or undermedication. I am hypercalcemic. The neck muscles are also weak and stiff when I have those other symptoms. Ihave also a slightly enlarged lymph nodule(?) in the neck. The parathyroids were not seen in MRI scannin for parathyroids. I have a lung tumour (not specified what it is).
Avatar f tn Digestive problems, high blood pressure, rapid heart rate (sometimes, night sweats (only occasional), reccuring sore throats, sore stiff neck, always tired and worn out feeling, recently noticed hard sore lump behind right ear-lymph node maybe? I am tired and what to know what is wrong. I have had blood work done 5 times over past year. I get up in the morning and just feel like I have been run over by a truck. Wouldn't someone notice an elavated white count, etc?
Avatar m tn I've read that stiff neck and swollen joints can be early symptoms of HIV infection (ARS). Suppose they occur, how long after infection are these symptoms likely to occur? Is it 2 to 4 weeks like Fever, Swollen glands, Sore throat, Rash, Fatigue etc...
Avatar n tn Hi, Yes I have Lymes disease now, and I have SO many swollen glands on my neck and it feels lke my whole neck is stiff and sore. It feels as if I can't breathe fully also! it's a terrible disease. So the lump on your neck is probably a swollen lymphnode, if it moves around.
Avatar f tn Three months ago I started getting sharp shooting pains in my neck followed by swollen glands, earache and fatigue. Three weeks ago I had burning pains in the back of my knees and they became very sore. Since then my arms have become heavy and aching with tingling in my fingers and my neck has been stiff with excruciating dull and pin-like head pains that cover the whole of my head. I also have fleeting sharp pains in various places around my body but these come and go.
Avatar f tn We are two days into the mystery rash syndrome. Today she is poorly - swollen glands and sore throat, very dehydrated. She had a headache last week but that has gone. She is a student - there has been a case of bacterial meninitis in her block recently but she is showing no sign of stiff neck or ongoing headache. She does not have a significantly raised temperature. Should I just keep closely monitoring or rush to bemused and off duty local GP?
Avatar n tn A couple of days later a headache that felt like a hangover came on and has remained, if not changed slightly to tightness around the temples and rear/right of head. My neck also became stiff at this time however after 2 months, it only seems to make squishing sounds now. The first two weeks I also couldn't lay flat without my head feeling like it would explode.
Avatar f tn I'm starting to feel like a hypocondriac, but I just don't feel well, and my doctor doesn't seem to think it is anything I should worry about. My neck feels stiff all the time and I still feel feverish at times. The glands in my neck feel swollen, I get terrible night sweats, my stomach bloats, I feel nauseous, have a low appetite, I am very tired, my stools are bright yellow and I often have diarhoea. My joints ache and I feel little painful nodules on some of my fingers.
Avatar n tn I went back to bed and they still were sore when I woke up. I am not large (34 a/b) and they did feel less sore as the day went on but were sore again when I woke up the next day. They don't hurt as much now but kinda feel tender right along the underwire bra. It's not just one boob but both? Any ideas? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn A few months ago after having an ultrasound on my neck my gp indicated that I have 5 or maybe more nodules on my thyroid - finally got to an endocrinologist for a biopsy to be done via some sort of needle however she said ultra sound that I already had and that had been sent to her was rather 'vague' so I'm scheduled to have another ultrasound to my head and neck ( I don't know why my neck - hope I don't have nodules on my brain lol) Anyways that wont be done until October and then I cant get to

Avatar f tn Thats the worst symptom, but I also have a little swelling and tenderness on the side of my face (in front of my ears and around my jaw) and it feels like I have swollen glands at the back of my neck (around my hairline). I've been taken ibroprofen and paracetamol, doctor said it was an insect bite, but that was when the pain was just on one side, its now all over my head. I also have occasional hot sweats and tingling in my head.
Avatar n tn One of the major symptoms that I experienced over the years with HCV was a frequently stiff and painful neck. Sometimes the pain was on the right, sometimes on the left, and during some periods was extremely severe and needed physical therapy in order for me to function. After tx my neck problems have been less frequent and less intense.
Avatar n tn Hi, for about a year now i have had this fizzing sound in my neck that occurs randomly, usually when i am just laying down. It doesnt occur when i am moving my head or anything, its usually just when i sitting still or laying down. It sounds like it is coming directly from the back of my neck and is starting to worry me. I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing sharp neck pains when I move my head, and generally feel my neck swollen and a bit stiff. I also have pain that radiates from the sides all the way to the back, mostly back of the head just behind the ears. Could this be related to the nodules? I am not too concerned about malignancy, as I understand the cure rate to be quite good, but my surgeon stated in January he would not remove nodules of this size if they were benign, as he felt they didn't cause a problem.
Avatar f tn How long do these stones last? Is it normal for my whole neck below the swollen chin to feel stiff, like sore muscles?
Avatar n tn I have no pain in the nodes themselves but have developed pain in the neck which seems like a stiff neck, and pain exists with any pressure from straining or lifting, also movement related pain in neck, chest and spine in the same region. No signs of infection at all, but do have extreme fatigue, back pain, some weight loss, among other varied symptoms. My Primary Dr said since no other enlarged nodes were found in other regions, he is not concerned about lymphoma.
Avatar f tn The next day I started noticing some neck discomfort, not really a sore throat, but stiffness and soreness in my throat area, when I turn my neck or put my head up or down to my chest. I thought maybe i might have an infection. I went back to my dentist yesterday, and he said he sees no sign of any infectiion, and that everything is healing nicely. I was glad, but am still concerned about the discomfort in my neck and throat area.
Avatar f tn I don't have acid reflux and it wouldn't cause sensitivity on the SKIN of the neck so that nothing can touch it or make the muscles stiff. You were missing the biggest symptoms CLOTHING TOUCHING THE NECK CAUSES IRRITATION.
