What causes neck pain? - Online Doctor Chats
My neck hurts very bad. I was wrestling with a friend and for the last 10 days my lymph nodes on my right front side of my neck hurt. I can't turn my head to the left without pain and when my head is down it hurts when swallowing. The pain is a throbbing pulsing feeling which is now affecting the whole left side of my neck and even my jaw. My neck doesn't hurt to the tough though. But it does feel uncomfortable where my jaw and neck meet when i touch it. My nodes don't seem swollen either but they seem to be whats hurting me most. What to i do?
Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
From the description you have provided it seems like you have had a severe muscle strain in the neck
and probably also have some dental infection
To understand what is going on, I would like you to elaborate a little more about your wrestling
Muscles trains in teh neck make the lymph nodes very senstitive
and did you get hurt around the neck during wrestling
Yes, muscle strain can cause the lymph nodes to become sensitive
it is quite possible
along with that you may also have a dental infection
Well I was grabbed there and some pressure was put on it
My teeth don't hurt
no blood when I water floss
can you try and feel along the muscles in the neck and see if the muscle itself pains
or the pain is just under the bony part of the jaw?
It most intense right below the jaw
Do you have sore throat?
i don't feel and pain when i touch below my XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
the sides of my neck don't hurt either
If neck muscles are not paining and if you don't have sore throat or teeth infection then there is one more possibility
what is that?
In that case I think you are suffering from parapharyngeal space infection (Quincy)
what causes that?
There are many causes
minor trauma to the tonsils
is that serious
It can be treated easily
can It be caused from trauma
but you will need to consult an ENT doctor
yes, it can be caused from trauma
that is pus collection in the perapharyngeal or peri tonsilar space
this pain hasn't subsided in over 10 days should htat be a major concern?
that makes it even more probable
Ok...thank u very much
If there is an abscess then the pain will not subside until it is drained
I don't feel any sack
Is there anything else I can help you with?
I don't feel any swollen area...
It is normal not to feel any swelling or sack
the parapharyngeal space and peritonsilar spaces are quite deep
I still think that is the case
considering all your symptoms and description
thank u very much...I will go get help asap...
Consult an ENT doctor and get yourself examined
You are most welcome
