Avatar f tn of connective tissue and the screw is unlikely to travel into the spinal canal, and within the neck, tissues are tightly packed -- I'm not sure that the screw would have anywhere to go. However, since your anatomy has been altered by surgery, the screw may be able to travel to spaces within your head or neck. I would get in touch with the surgeon who installed the screw, or if this is not possible, get a referral from your doctor to an orthopaedic surgeon.

Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. It could be due to inflammation of the tongue. If there has been trauma, there could be an element of infection also. This can cause lymph nodes to enlarge in the neck and neck pain. If there is redness and swelling it's more likely to be infected. Please have yourself evaluated to rule out trauma and infection. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
1085045 tn?1273804899 I have started having neck pain where the occipital bone at the back of the head and Cervical vertebra 1 connect. Usually I am in class, Anatomy and Physiology ironically enough and I start having neck pain, sore throat and then I start having problems taking a normal breath. Since breathing is my best method to combating my anxiety it has become fairly hard to function and keep the attacks at bay. I am now seeing a doctor and we are doing test but I do not have any results yet.
Avatar f tn You should go to an Orthopedician for an examination and analyzing your x-ray and if your clavicle is fine and the symptoms are not due to your clavicle you should look for throat and ear infections. Take care!
Avatar n tn I thought I also developed a rash that was in the neck area that was colorless and looked like minature pimples and had one day of a 1 mm red flat lesion that then went away. I have continued to have a dry mouth. 2 Days ago it appeared that my toungue had a whitish film on it and then a one mm circular red lesion on the toungue appeared that has continued. It seems like there are some new areas of redness on the tip of the toungue. It appears to me to be very likley to be thrush.

When I eat, drink or breathe no problem!
Avatar f tn Perhaps what I see in my throat is only my epiglottis that is high and visible... and my throat anatomy is just odd... ? None of the people I have around has a visible epiglottis like mine though.... and then seeing that photo....
Avatar m tn s apple/larynx (whatever parts make up the anatomy of my throat) - just another bump going down the front of my neck, except Ive learned to identify lymph nodes in recent months. I also found two, non-symptomatic, lymph nodes in my upper neck, behind the chin a couple inches that are about the size of kidney beans (one lightly smaller than the other), but they've been that way for a long time I'm pretty sure as I noticed them 6 months ago at least.
Avatar f tn 50 X0.49X0.42 cm in right lobe. What I am puzzled about is the chronic sore throat and neck pain/spasms by throut where nodule. PCP put me on Armour to see if I get any improvement with calming down spams. Other thought is maybe relux in my throat. Doing motility test on Wed. I am ready to take the nodule out.

Avatar n tn its probably your epiglottis- i have always had normal mouth anatomy and never seen mine befroe all of a sudden my thyroid starts swelling and now there is my epiglottis ! some days its higher and other days i can barely see it at all - i am hypo . the epiglottis looks just like a little tounge sticking out at you - i went to several docs over this and had neck ct etc. the docs would be like no u can not see your epiglottis there is no way and i would say just look and they would and say WHOA!
Avatar m tn There is a good chance that you have activated a trigger point in your digastric muscle. It's helpful to understand the anatomy & physiology of your tongue - the muscles in the front of your neck, the digastric, suprahyoid & infrahyoid, and the anterior vertebral muscles and the nerves that supply them.
Avatar m tn The allergists prescribed Zyrtec, nasonex and nexium and this course of treatment helped for a while but now the constant need to clear my throat is back. I also do the saline nostril rinse once a day as well and it helps for about thirty minutes then it is back to clearing my throat every few seconds. I am a 54 year old fairly healthy male. Are there any other interventions that may get me some relief? Thank you for your time and your response.
Avatar f tn I had partial thyroid surgery done last year and they used some stuff inside that I guess I reacted too and my neck swelled to 3 times the normal size and they suctioned all the stuff out, is it possible that having had this surgery could have now caused a sleep apnea issue? Does any of this sound like sleep apnea. I go see the Dr next Friday and then schedule my sleep apnea test, but it seems so far off when you haven't slept in awhile.
Avatar m tn i have recently discovered a very large and hard lump at the base of my neck to the center and right side. It seems to extend from the very base of my neck (where you swallow) down toward my clavicle. I have had Hashimoto's for about 30 years and take my meds daily. I have also been experiencing hoarseness that will not go away despite reflux treatment. I also have a frequent cough but I do have allergies and get weekly allergy injection. My last thyroid labs in January were good.
Avatar m tn Hi, welcome to the community! I too have problems in my neck and upper back. I live to learn about the why's and what's of my anatomy, and to share my knowledge with others. I have reversal of my cervical lordosis, ddd and djd bulging/protruding disks and bone growth complex of my vertebra. I currently have no pain specialist, let alone a doctor who believes this could cause any issues. I have been having problems with my arms going numb while sleeping for sometime.
Avatar f tn Went to a throat specialist, and all she had to say is that it is my anatomy... I doubt that to be honest. I have pictures if you need more insight. Please help me, I'm going crazy. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn My doctor just drew blood based on my symptoms but never felt my neck. Is sore throat and neck soreness a symptom of thyroid disorders? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I have a lot of pain the back of my neck especially close to hair line on the back of the neck. All down the side of my neck and throat column is very tender to the touch from underneath my chin to about my collar bone. If I tip my head forward to say eat or drink I feel like im being choked, same occurs if I tip my head back slightly to drink out of a bottle or brush my hair. I have also pain when I swallow, be it food, liquid or just plain saliva.
824295 tn?1241652549 My question is I have been very stressed the last 11 weeks due to not feeling well and my drs. not having any answers for me. My neck on both sides and the front of my throat and under my chin feel funny. I also feel as though I have a lump in my throat and my right ear is plugged and have some nasal congestion. 3 drs say there is nothing wrong with my throat or ear. I do know that when I lay down to rest I feel as though I am clenching my teeth.
