Neck started hurting close to heae in back left side while running today. I has gotten progressively worse and now i can barely turn my head. Injury?
Muscle Spasm: The description of your symptoms sounds like a muscle spasm in your upper neck. The brain subconsciously contracts the para vertebral muscles to prevent perceived spinal injury. This is the reason, the pain become worse during the day. If the pain/spasm does not improve significantly, then discussing the symptoms with your doctor should be the next step. ...Read more

Do I have a head injury and should I be concerned about it. Yesterday, i was at my highschool track practice i was highjumping then i jumped way to high and when i landed i just clipped the mat and landed on the ground on my neck and the back of my head
I : I agree with dr fowler. In particular, what you describe is typical for a concussion, but you should be checked to be sure that you don't have a more serious kind of injury such as a subdural hematoma or a contusion. Also, if you hit your neck, you should have an MRI scan of the neck to be sure you have not damaged your cervical spine and put your spinal cord at risk. Do not delay in seeking appropriate evaluations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Headache in different spots-behind eyes, above temple, in back/down back of neck. Had 2CTscans recent for head injury. Would they have seen a tumor?
Concussion: Some people may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (tinnitus, difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. Improvement in symptoms is based on many factors including severity and location of the concussion. See a neurologist for evaluation. http://www.webmd.com/brain/post-concussion-syndrome ...Read more
Head turning: It may be a vertebral problem but it may be a muscular problem. You may have torticollis or a wry neck.

Neck pain: At your age, a stiff neck is most commonly due to degenerative changes, meaning aging changes. For now, your symptoms should be well treatable with simple conservative measures such as stretching, range of motion exercises, and anti-inflammatory meds (such as ibuprofen, naproxyn). See an md if symptoms persist. ...Read more
I experienced a two weeks of cluster headaches .i still got blurred fuzzy vision with occasional sharp pains in my head with stiff neck .pls help ?
Likely migraines: Cluster headaches are headaches on one side of the head with eye tearing and/or nose running on that same side of the head that make you agitated and pace that last 15-180 minutes untreated. Migraines last 4+ hours untreated and are more often associated with nausea and blurred vision. The distinction matters since we treat them differently.

I've been having stiff neck problem for almost a week now. I can't turn my head properly. Usually it took only a day or two. I checked my cholesterol.?
Torticolis: Cholesterol shouldn't have anything to do with a stiff neck. It sounds as though you have strained the neck muscles leaving them in spasm. Time and anti-inflammatory medications such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin may be useful in relaxing the tissue to normal. Failing that, you may want to look into osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation. Daily exercise can help avoid this problem before it occurs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
