Neck pain

What is Neck pain?

Neck pain can be due to various causes. It most commonly occurs due to poor posture and spraining the neck during sleep, stretching, exercise etc. It can also be due to infections - meningitis for example. Slipping of the bony skeleton ( vertebra ) underneath or laxity of the ligaments can lead to neck pain.

hi,i have had a swollen and painfull lympth node behind my right ear for months ,along with a heavy feeling on that side of my head/brain ,its making me very anxious as the doctor just sais im fine unless it gets bigger.surely this isnt normal ,im a 30yr old female and a smoker and im worried it could be something sinister,or could it be tooth related as ive had the neck pain before when i had a rotton tooth,although the tooth didnt hurt.

doctor1 MD

Hello,

I can understand your concern. I agree with you that a swollen lymph node behind ear should not be ignored for months. In addition, I would like to clear that decayed tooth cannot cause swelling on the back of the ear although it can cause swelling in the neck.

However, it is possible that...

Hello,

As a first line management you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

Hiv can only be ruled out by doing blood tests.

doctor1 MD

Hi, Welcome to healthcare magic ,

Since even after the cardiac problem has been taken care of , the pain in the neck radiating to the arm still persists, it is probably a part of cervical spondylitis.

TREATMENT:
1) SOFT CERVICAL COLLAR ( very important )
2) Neck muscle exercises ( can be done...

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern looking to the history given here I could say that in my opinion better to see the ophthalmologist first to rule out the eye problem this is the near option you have, for the neck pain you can have the "Tab Diclofenac 50 mg" once in day...

hi 7 weeks ago after having a coughing fit i was in pain with my back, i started to get pains down my legs on the left side of my back and sometimes i get like aching pains in my neck. The 1st visit to my drs i saw a nurse who gave me a perscription for ibuprofen 600mg tablets which really didnt do much, my 2nd visit to the drs i was perscribed zydol 50mg capsules which when i took just 1 did very little and when i took 2 they knocked me out so much that all i did was sleep my 3rd visit i seen a different dr as the 1st dr was on leave and she told e to bend over felt my back and said yes i can feel it is twisted i dont really know what she was refering to but she perscribed me dicloflex 50mg and co-codamol and she was refering me to see a phyisotherapist that was last wednesday she said i would receive an appointment in the post but today my husband called in the drs because i hadnt heard anything and the receptionist still had the letter to post on her desk. My sick note runs out on the 31st of october amd after speaking to the phyisotherapist s reception this afternoon they have told me that if they receive the letter tomorrow or monday i will have a 2 week wait for an appointment if i am lucky. I am in so much pain unless i take the zydol tablets i am getting no sleep. Shouldnt i have been sent for an xray or something before now?????

I am a physical therapist. I met with a new patient today who was in a plane crash in 2010. She had cervical trauma with a herniated disc and compression fractures. She has had ongoing neck pain and just over 2 months ago started getting peripheral edema. She said she first noticed it in the right hand, then the left and then it progressed to the feet. She now has it in all 4 extremities accompanied by strong pain ( especially in the hands) and decreased grip strentgh with difficulty making a tight fist. Could the peripheral edema possibly be a result of the cervical trauma. Even though it occurred over 3 years ago?
