Non specific : Your symptoms are not specific enough to suggest a problem. Neck pain and cold spots on the head could mean anything from stress, lack of sleep to poor vision. I would suggest keeping a log of what happens for a week and then see a doc if the pain is significant to you. ...Read more

My neck and chest area get very red and itchy during evening only  and it gets hot. And after my bbody  is cold it disappears.

Ur seeing arteriolar: response: Arterioles control blood flow to capillaris, body wide. More blood into capillaries of skin ?es pink-to-red color of skin (skin actually yellow due to proteins). Intense enough capillary flow increase also tends to result in various "itchy" sensations, as in sun burn, niacin or post menopausal flushing responses. When we feel hot, brain ?es blood flow to skin to release heat/cool off. ...Read more

Sometimes when drinking cold, and sometimes but less frequently hot, beverages i get pain in the back i my neck that lasts a few minutes. Why?

Irritation: It may be irritation of your posterior esophagus, such as an area of "esophagitis" that gets adversely stimulated and irritated with hot or cold substances. This discomfort since in the back of your esophagus can be felt to be in the back of your neck. Just a thought, so best to get it evaluated to be sure if it persists. Best wishes. ...Read more

My chin and neck area feels warm sometimes and sometimes cold randomly. I've been having constant anxiety lately and can't seem to get rid it, cause?

My chin and neck area feels warm sometimes and sometimes cold randomly. I've been having constant anxiety lately and can't seem to get rid it, cause?

Not clear: It's difficult to say whether you're having a psychological disorder like anxiety or panic attacks which could cause somatic symptoms like the ones you're describing or a medical disease such as hyperactive thyroid which could cause psychological symptoms like anxiety. Either way, I suggest to make an appointment to see your doctor as these symptoms may get worse if not treated. ...Read more

I get a few fast twitches or pulsations in neck typically after swimming in cold water. Is this normal?

I get a few fast twitches or pulsations in neck typically after swimming in cold water. Is this normal?

Most likely yes: Muscle twitching in general does not indicate any serious ailment unless there are other associated symptoms or signs (i.e. weakness, loss of sensation, etc). If these symptoms persist and are bothersome, I would recommend that you seek the consultation of a neurologist. ...Read more

Tics: Tics are involuntary motor movements. You do not have conscious control over them. Your can a lot of energy trying to supress them for a while, but they will eventually return. Tics may go into remission for a long time. Stress, anxiety and many other factors cill trigger a tic. ...Read more

My neck and back get cold and numb when masturbating, during orgasm. A similar thing happens before i get panic attacks. What could be causing it?

My neck and back get cold and numb when masturbating, during orgasm. A similar thing happens before i get panic attacks. What could be causing it?

Autonomic nerves: The autonomic (involuntary) nervous system is 2 parts: one called sympathetic and the other is parasympathetic. The sympathetic part is responsible for panic (fear fight flight anger and intense exercise) and also gets excited during orgasm. The problem is that fixing this problem is not as straight forward. Discuss with your doc possibly increasing Paxil or using other meds like beta blockers? ...Read more
