Had stroke 13 years ago. Have suffered anxiety ever since. Mainly dizziness. Recently came off citalopram after 8 years, started on sertraline. Never felt worse in my life......including severe diarrhea. Dr now stopped sertraline and put me on propranolol one week ago. Still feel awful and dizziness possibly worse. Will anything ever work?View 3 Replies

I went to physical therapy for TMJ 4 days ago, I'm 31 years old. While massaging my jaw the physical therapist went on to my neck, and without me knowing out of nowhere cranked my neck super hard and it popped 3 times on the left side. My neck has been stiff on the left ever since with some pain and when I walk I hear loud clicking crackling/pop rocks sounds in my neck right before it meets the shoulders. Did he injure me? anyone else experience this? will it go away.
I was so upset he cracked my neck like that he isn't even a chiropractor but said afterwards when I got upset with him that he knows chiropractor movements.
I've never been to a chiropractor so I don't know how it compares but it seems really hard and forceful when he did it. Its weird that when I move my neck I don't hear the sound, only when walking. Someone please advise me on this.
Also what type of doctor should I see for this issue, i'm going to schedule an appointment tomorrow, but don't know the type of doctor who would be best. My GP just gave me ibuprofen and said it should go away on it's own.
I've had chronic severe sinusitis for a couple years now and now am bedridden from it from being too weak and toxic feeling. Anyway, Most of my infection is on the left side and I have swelling on the left side of my neck and swelling/stiffness on the back of my neck too.View 4 Replies
my 7 year old son has had a lump on the back of his neck for a few months now. I took him to the Doctor and they said its nothing to worry about and put him on AntiBiotics but it didn't do anything.. It moves and can see it clearly. he says it gets itchy and it does cause him a bit of pain. especially when his shirt rubs on it.View 1 Replies

I found a pea size lump on my right side of neck in between my ear and collar bone but more close to collar bone. It does not hurt when I touch it but I have been touching it too much it causes the area to hurt. When I feel it it feels like it's on my neck muscle. I'm scared of what it could be. It's giving me anxiety and I just want to know if anyone else has had this or knows what it could be. I felt this a couple days ago I'm not sure how long I've had it but I did come down with a cold a couple days ago and a fever etc and I also had minor ear pain and my wisdom tooth seems to be a bit inflamed I can tell on my cheek. It might be from that but not sure. I'm taking antibiotics for the last couple days but ts still here. Not sure what to do I want to stop worrying.View 1 Replies
I am 39 years old. I have a lump about one and a half to two centimetres in size on the left side of my neck midway between my ear and collar bone. It has been there for at least over a year and a half, possibly longer. It is hard (feels like a round bone) and painless, even when firmly pressed. There is no colouration or abnormality on the skin above or around the lump. I have seen several doctors at the same hospital here in Japan where I live (they keep referring me to different departments within the same hospital), all of whom say it is either a schwannoma or a lymph node tumor. They also tell me that there is a high risk of performing a biopsy (needle or open) because there are a lot of nerves in the area of the neck where the lump is located. All of this has also been explained to me in either low-level English, or fast Japanese which I am not good at. It has been extremely frustrating, as I feel I haven't received a great explanation of any diagnoses or what my options are. I have been referred once again to another doctor, this time in the ENT department, by a doctor in the oncology department whom I saw today, my 4th visit (and department!) to date.View 1 Replies
So it's been atleast a week now since noticing this lump. It's on my upper left side of my neck, right under my earlobe. At first, it was red and bug-bite esque, and it eventually faded to the pale color it is now. While I am under immense stress, I worry this could be something harmful to my health. It barely hurts at all if I press on it, and touching it there's no pain at all. It's just...there. It doesn't really itch unless I think about it either. Could it just be a bug bite and I'm over-reacting? Or should I genuinely be concerned?View 1 Replies
I'm a 21 year old male, I'm of a average weight and I've not been diagnosed of any conditions other than my heart working a little harder than normal in the lower left quadrant (birth defect) I don't smoke or drink either.
Around 3-4 days ago, I noticed that my ear and the right side of my head felt a little different to normal, numb I would have said.
Wen waking up in the morning, I began to notice a sort of ear wax like substance on my pillow, although it seemed to be more of a brighter yellow colour and had a more cheesy type smell to it, not a huge scent, but certainly different to normal (gross I know)
The same day, I started to get quite a bad head, however only on the right side of my head originations from the top of my head and to the right where my temple is.
The pain was on and off and seemed to ease off when I took sinus relief tablets.
Since then, I've started to feel a little dizzy and generally under the weather, my face is warm to touch and my cheeks are red.
Since today, I've also started to feel a little sick aswell and I noticed this morning when I woke up that I had a sort of swelling on the back of my neck to the right hand side just under my hair line, it's around an inch in diameter and doesn't protrude the skin but it can be felt if I were to run my fingers over the area, it is a little tender to touch and has no discolouration on the skin or any visible marks.
It's not solid to touch as such, more like something you'd feel after you'd banged it on something and it had swollen with fluid.
What I would like to know is, does any of this sound familiar to my of you?
I would like to add, that previous to this, I had an eye infection which I needed to take antibiotics for which hasn't quite cleared up yet but is more or less gone now, I also tried to clear out my right ear with something, so is it possible that I could have an ear infection that's spread and gotten worse?
Or could this be something more sinister?
I'm a 19 year old female and i've noticed that I've lost at least 5-6kg (~60kg - 54kg) of weight since the middle of march. Initially in march i intended to lose weight by eating less and exercising more, however this didn't last for long and although I was eating a little less it doesn't warrant how much weight I've lost since then. Since coming home from university at the end of june I weighed myself and was shocked by my weight loss! Since seeing the weight loss in June I've eaten a lot more but am finding it difficult to actually put on weight (but haven't lost anymore weight).
I also found a moveable lump under my jaw, it is painless and there is only one of them. It is roughly 1cm in size (if not a few mm bigger).
I feel as if i find it hard to breathe in but I've been looking up a lot of symptoms on the internet and am not sure if this is just my mind telling me that I'm having breathing difficulties!
It's being 2 months on and off and i keep getting a pain that comes and goes on the right side my neck.Pain a little uncomfortable, sore sometimes like a stiff neck. I think it got sore around time i went to body bump used weights on my shoulder.View 3 Replies
This just started happening to me about a week ago. I was having intercourse with my girlfriend when I noticed a slight pain in the back of my skull that ran down a muscle into my neck. It wasn't bad so I figured it was random and would go away. Unfortunately, this pain has come back every time I have had sex since. I am curious if this is something serious or not and it will go away in time?View 3 Replies

I know we're all different but due to neck/shoulder/arm/face pain with radiating pain to my arms at times I was previously prescribed pregabalin, that gave me heart palps and rls, now tried gabapentin and I think I had some sort of adverse reaction to it as my side effects were quite severe so I'm wondering where to go from here re meds. I've tried amitriptyline but not for long however the short time I took it it did nothing. Was thinking of trying nortriptyline as an alternative as read side effects not so bad.
Does anyone have any experience with Any of these 4 drugs or an alternative and if you've tried nortriptyline how well it did work vs it's side effects.
Or if anyone has found a miracle drug please let me know. I think key for me is muscle relaxation and nerve burning reduction.
Has anyone else experienced weekly headaches that just seem to last no matter how much sleep you get or water you drink? I also have neck pain in which I have already seen both chiropractor and physical therapist for. When I have these headaches, I feel pressure behind my ways so intense I can't stand bright lights. On top of all this I am dizzy, however, my balance is totally fine. I have already been to an ENT specialist and had an MRI, etc. Only thing I haven't moved onto is a neurologist because I already am racking up my medical bills and yes I have health insurance but a crappy one at that! Please help. Has anyone else been experiencing this and if so, what did you do to rid it?View 21 Replies
