Brief Answer:
Can you describe the Pain in more detail?

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXX, Thanks for coming to HealthCareMagic. I see that you have been suffering from neck pain. That pain seems to be localized at the base of your neck (as you have said) and that when you move your neck at any angle or in any direction the pain does not change. That is very useful information.

I however will need a bit more information before I can reliably begin to formulate any kind of plan of action.

Can you please tell me the following?

0) Can you describe the character of the pain? Is it like an electric shock?, like a burning pain? Twisting.. etc etc. Try and be as descriptive as you can.

1) When did the pain start? Was there some associated injury or event that was associated with the start if the pain (ie, did you fall? hurt yourself? or strain yourself in anyway?)

2) What are the activities that will make the pain worse? And vice versa, what activities will bring the pain down? Does eating food affect the pain in anyway?

3) Do pain killers help with pain? What kind of pain killers have you tried?

4) Do you notice any weakness or difficulty in using your arms or legs?

5) Do you have any problems with balance?

Now when it comes to the issue of easy fatigue-ability, that meshes nicely with the fact that you are anemic (low Hemoglobin levels). How is this being treated? Have you had your Hb checked recently? If you Hb levels are still low, then the tiredness and fatigue ability are explained by that alone.

If on the other hand, your recent Hb levels are normal, then we have to look deeper into the cause of your symptoms. We will have to look into your thyroid levels and vitamin levels.

For the time being, I would suggest you start writing down whatever information you can on the neck pain in particular. Study it and try and answer the above questions. The more information you give me. The more useful I can be to you.

I look forward to your response.

Vinay

I have been having random problems lately but have just pushed it off as hormonal changes and not thought anything about it until recently. I m 20 years old and my moods have been through the roof. I can be laughing and extremely happy one day and biting someone s head off the next. This has all occurred recently. I m not bipolar, etc. My period was 9 days late this month and lighter than normal. Its usually extremely heavy. It ended Friday and yesterday I ended up in the ER with extreme tachycardia and tingling in both arms with 3 near-syncope episodes. Doctors pushed it off as anxiety yet I ve been out of school for 2 months and under zero stress. I ve also gained 30 pounds in the last 6 weeks and i exercise and eat healthy CONSTANTLY. I know this all sounds random but I know there is something going on. Thyroid levels are perfect so I m leaning toward PCOS or low progesterone. Any suggestions or thoughts as to whats going on?
