Hello and welcome to Health Care Magic

Nabothian cysts are harmless, benign cysts formed in the cervix. These cysts do not cause any discomfort or do not signify any serious pathology. So, don't worry about them.

Neck pain, muscle stiffness, sinus infection and blurring vision may be all related or may be separate processes. For sinus infection, you should visit your ENT specialist for examination, investigations and a course of antibiotics.

Blurring of vision over past 6 months can be due to diminishing vision. In order to focus clearly, ocular muscles (eye muscles) try to accommodate which leads to spasm and fatigue of these muscles as well as surrounding muscles of scalp and neck.
This can cause associated head ache and neck pain.
So, visit an ophthalmologist to exclude any errors in refraction or within the eye.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

5 years ago, i contracted labyrinthitis got water in the ear accidentaly and started having dizzy episodes that would last a few minutes. During these episode i would here a loud ringing in my ear and the room would start spinning, especially if i tilted me head towards the side the ear was on. During these i used to hold my breath through fear of the attack. Gradually after a few months the attacks stopped as i constantly held my head tilted to the opposite side. Then 3 years ago during sleep my head tilted back to the affected side and the attacks started again. Ive since been told by a gp it is happening with anxiety attacks, i get the ringing and balance loss (it feels like an outer body experience) then after a few months again they stopped. Ive only had a dozen or so since (i managed a year between 2 attacks, these started on monday 10th october and ive had half a dozen since. Im not eating or sleeping properly due to this and have become severly depressed to the point when the episodes returned 3 years ago ive thought about ending it all, but since learned this would not help anyone. Is there any surgery i could have that would completely stop these together, I dont mind losing hearing in the ear

I had fusion spine surgery on c-2 -c6 because I have spasmatic torticollis involentery my brain triggers chronic pain wore my protein between my spine bones . I had surgery March 17, this year 2and a half months ago. My spasms pulls my ncck down. They don t have a neck brass to fit me. Will this weaken my bone mass or wii my neck get strong like it was before my surgery? Very scared. My spasms never pulled my neck down and I know the first 12weeks your neck nots to pull down so the bone mass can fuse around my spine bone.

Recently took my 10 week old daughter (who is a twin) to doctor for routine check up. Doctor did not say anything about her head until I asked. her head is misshapen and she looks to one side, which from what i looked up is infant torticollis. Doctor did not diagnose her with this, but said to exercise her neck muscles. Shouldn't this have been diagnosed as infant torticollis? Will it go away without physical therepy or use of a helmet? Anyone's infant had this and fixed it without physical therapy?

I have a palpable mass on the right side of my neck. It is hard and the size of three fingers! For this problem, I had a CT scan with contrast and an MRI , both show nothing significant other than age related degeneration and something called mild...

I have been suffering with severe neck pain for over two weeks. I have seen a chiropractor who diagnosed me with Torticollis. I have suffered from this neck condition since I was 3. The chiropractor administered stimulation and acupuncture to the affected site which brought immediate relief from the pain. However, I have flu-like symptoms (but no fever) as well that get better and then suddenly come on again. I am weak, shaky, tired, my eyes hurt/itch, and just don t feel well. It reminds me of when I had mono. Can mono flare up repeatedly over my lifetime? I am getting frustrated and don t want to waste thousands of dollars at the doctor s office if this is a virus.
