Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Pain on right side of the neck may be due to -

1) Neck muscle spasm- due to overuse or injury. Needs muscle relaxants like thiocolchicoside along with pain killers for relief under guidance of an orthopaedician.

2)Middle ear infection- ASOM- needs an examination by ENT surgeon for diagnosis. Only broad spectrum antibiotics along with antiinflammatory drugs will help.

3)Cervical spondylosis- An X-ray of the neck will help in diagnosis.

4)Swollen neck glands due to any infection of head and neck.

5) Dental pain- sometimes is referred to the neck.

In my opinion you do need to consult an orthopaedician first followed by an ENT surgeon to reach a diagnosis after proper investigations.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.
