Pain in right side of neck that comes and goes.

I am working in an environment where there was a toilet leak and wetness in the walls of the office where I am working all day. I feel I am getting symptoms from working there. My right side of my neck hurts and it gets worse as the week goes on and better on the weekend to hurt again the following week. Reading about the lymph node I can believe I could be breathing in bacteria and fungus. I am the only one in this office room. What do you think?

I think this is due to cervical pains due to improper posture wile working, do your x ray, and rule out the couse.

Hi,Thanks for query.
It is possible that the atmosphere where yuo are working may be responsible to some extent but not entirely due to this.
Keep your working room well ventilated with free wind entry,
Keep room with well day light is there.
If you are elderly then possibility of having cervical spondilitis you should keep in mind.
Even your posture when you work with straight neck for long time may also give this problem.
Go for X ray if require and go for treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.

Yes, damp, humid and dark environments encourage growth of fungi and other organisms. Allergic Fungal Rhino-Sinusitis (AFRS) may be the cause of your symptoms. One way to rule this out will be to shift your workplace temporarily into another area. Do you have any scalp infection or wear artificial jewelry? Do you have to work in any particular neck position for long hours?
