Best med(s)/plan for headache:concussion and neck sprain from sports injury? Neuro seen,have tingling back of head,stiff neck,nausea one month later

NSAIDS, ice, heat...

Open-uri20130407-28965-nbfolc
Pain, stiffness, and inflammation can be relieved with over-the-counter medications like Advil or Aleve. Follow directions on label. Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Follow this by heat for about 20 to 25 minutes to help soothe and relax tight muscles. Gentle range of motion and stretching exercises.

Dr. Walter Husar answered:

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

Head-brain
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.

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.

Stiff neck unable to turn head ! Vertebrae problems?

Head turning

Head
It may be a vertebral problem but it may be a muscular problem. You may have torticollis or a wry neck. If you do it will respond to heat or ice treatment and analgesics or muscle relaxants. If no response see your doctor for further evaluation and XRays of your cervical vertebrae

What causes a very stiff neck and my head to feel super heavy?

Neck arthritis

There are several joints and intervertebral discs in the neck. These can wear out over time leading to pain, stiffness, and headaches You can also get neck pain/stiffness from a muscle strain. See your physician if these symptoms do not clear up.
