Stiff neck/shoulders, fatigue, muscle twitches, ear/jaw pain and stiffness, headaches/head pressure, very sore muscles waking up. Lyme disease?

Not likely: You may have fibromyalgia. You need to discuss this with your physician and possibly see a rheumatologist. This is unlikely to be Lyme disease but there are other possibilities in the differential diagnosis that need to be confirmed. Your evaluation will include examination, lab studies and maybe imaging. ...Read more

Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing.

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 more

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
