Feeling pressure and sparks in the head. Dizziness, stiff neck, swollen nodules in throat. Lump behind the ear. What is it?

Hi I keep getting pressure at one side of my head, sometimes i get little sparks around the head that only lasts for a few seconds, i also get on and off tooth pressure to the one side. I also find i get dizzy when moving around, my neck has been feeling stiff on and off and I have a husky voice due to swollen nodules on my throat . I have had a cat scan all is clear. Just the other day i found a small lump back of my right ear behind the lobe, its not sore but if i press it the pressure starts to build in my head?

hello and welcome to HCM,

You have different problems, let us go through them one by one:
1. Your pressure/ sparks and dizziness has to be properly evaluated as it can be due to an ENT/ Neurological and/or orthopedic cause so consult these doctors as soon as possible
2.You say that you have a husky voice, for this the ENT will request an endoscopy and speech therapy consultation to determine your treatment course. Do an ENT consult as soon as possible for the same.
3. Your complaint about the lump in the ear also requires an ENT examination and may also require an FNAC or biopsy

meanwhile do not strain when you speak, take only warm water or fluids and do not press on the lump

take care
