Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Dear how old are you?? since when you're suffering from above problem?? are you male or female??
What about your X-ray neck, ESR, CRP, CBP and Ra factor and ANA levels.
You may need to consult your rheumatologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a very painful lump on the side of my neck. I have gotten ice pick headaches in the past, and I m getting the same feeling in the lump on my neck. It hurts to bend my neck in any direction, and it s giving me constant migraines. The lump had been there for years, and recently just started giving me problems. I ve been having migraines since I was around 7, those are nothing new, but this is just making things so much worse.

I have a painful lump upon palpation about 1 inch above adams apple on the left side. I have the same lump on the right side that is only slightly painful. This pain began 3 days ago. The location of the two lumps seem to be in the same anotomic region on both side. Any clue what this could be.
