What can cause neck pain along with coughing up of blood?

I have had a pain in my neck for quite some time, it started out as feeling like my head was too heavy for my neck to support, now it’s like a kink or stiff neck that you get from sleeping wrong but mine won’t go away and it’s been lgetting worse. I had neck surgery (radio frequency) was the procedure done four years ago. I recently had a tooth pulled on the right side which is where the pain starts but that was pulled two month a go. I cough up blood on occasion as well. I’ve been diagnosed with RA but my last visit with my rheumatologist he said I’m just a carrier!? Real confused as he wanted to start treatment two months a go, chemo!?

Neck pain with coughing of blood can be related to a lung cause. You need to consult a chest specialist for a proper evaluation.

My husband is having severe pain with his neck, his right shoulder down his arm and elbow, the back of his left leg is swollen and hurts extremely bad. He has been to two orthopedic doctors and neither one has helped him. He was in such severe pain, he took a lot of Aleve and it caused him to have bleeding ulcers and he almost died with losing hsi blood. His blood count was down to 5 when I got him to the hospital. The doctors says it is arthritis but they have not been able to help him get any relief. He cannot take any medicine with asprin because they said the Aleve has aspririn and that is waht caused the bleeding ulcer. We are trying to find a doctor that can help him.

My wife has been sick for over a week now -- fever, coughing a lot, sore neck and back. She had a blood test two days ago. It came back negative for Lyme but she had an ESR rate of 90. The doctor asked her to come back in in a week for a second blood test. How worried should this make me? I should say her fever has seem to have gone away since her blood test.
