What medication is suggested for throbbing pain on right side of neck?

I keep getting a random throbbing in my neck on the right side...almost like an adrenaline rush would cause. It happens when I am in a relaxed state though, sometimes right before I fall asleep or right when I wake up, sometimes accompanied by a cold sweat or slight dizziness. Anxiety or stress perhaps? I am 31, female, 5 2 and weigh around 165. My family has a history of strokes and heart attacks/problems. Any thoughts?

Hello,

I read carefully your question and would explain that your symptoms are not typical of any cardiac disorders. In my opinion anxiety could mimic all this clinical situation. Anyway, before coming to this conclusion, I would recommend checking thyroid hormone levels in order to exclude possible thyroid gland dysfunction. An ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring would help exclude any possible cardiac arrhythmia. If all the above tests result normal, you should consider anxiety as the main cause underlying your complaints.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
