What is the best medicine for neck swelling and head ache that cause of bump?

Time and sleep: Some questions are hard to answer without an examination. If you have a viral infection that may cause some lymph node swelling in the neck and give you a headache and fatigue then time alone will allow your immune system to fight off the infection.

Will a head and neck MRI be able to detect a head or neck injury?

Sometimes: If your head/neck symptoms are stemming from pathology in the brain or cervical spine then these tests may reveal something. If its muscular pain, then probably not. Realize that an MRI is just a picture at that point in time, and is not a physiologic test. However, it can be a very helpful test, especially if the symptoms aren't going away in a few weeks time. ...Read more

Neck Pain: Neck pain after a lifting injury can have quite a long healing process, especially if the injury entailed nerve, ligament, or muscle injury. The injury reported is from heavy shrugs which is usually a stretch type injury. Without the cmri results and a detailed history with current activity level, it is very hard to comment on your situation. I would recommend seeing an orthopedic specialist. ...Read more

No effect of penicilin after 3 days. Bad sore throat, difficulty swalloing,ear ache, head ache, swelling under ear. Pain gets worst in night. No fever?

Give it time: We know true strep is universally sensitive (killed) by penicillin, but the tissue disruption/pain triggered by infection may take time to improve. You can also have a co-infection with a throat virus (like mono) which can produce some of the most painful soar throats.If your doc treated you without confirming the strep, a virus may be the main cause and the penicillin would do nothing. ...Read more
