Causes Of Sharp Pain In Front Of Neck
What can cause pain in front of neck under jaw. Lymph nodes not englarged. Pain comes and goes for months, sometimes dull sometimes sharp?
See an ENT Doctor: You obviously need to be seen and examined. Don't wait until the severity of illness forces you to do this, go while it is not an emergency and get managed. Best.
Neck Pain: According to the U.S. National library of medicine and the national institutes of health, or nih, neck pain can arise from issues with the neck muscles, nerves, ligaments, vertebrae and spinal discs. Neck pain can emerge in any part of the neck, including the front of the neck. Front neck pain can be caused by certain medical conditions, throat infections and traumatic injury.

I was having my neck check out for stiffness. During the testing I felt a sharp pain shooting down my neck. What can cause this problem?
Brief episode?: If the sharp shooting pain was brief and resolved then it was probably irritation of an inflamed tendon or ligament. If that pain has persisted then it could be a pinched nerve. Consider seeing a chiropractor for treatment.

Pain in neck: Could be a twisted first rib on the right. Check with an osteopath or chiroprator to see. Rarely soemthing more complicated.
Nerve Injury or: Possibly nerve entrapment such as from a vertebra gone out of whack or disc inj. Strangely, if an upper rib become dysfunctional, it too can cause sharp or achy pain in arm & neck. I recommend a good history & physical including osteopathic hands-on exam to figure out cause. Treatment could be as simple as manipulation, but if other treatment is necessary, your D.O. will be able to do it or refer.
Muscle spasm: Use ice and take ibuprofen for discomfort. Seek professional evaluation if condition persists. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

I've had sharp pain in my back while bending for the past two days. What could cause that? I've had headaches, neck/back pain for the past two years.
Depends.....: At your age it is likely to be muscular in nature. Certain positions can trigger muscle spasms in some people. Try a heating pad and gentle massage. If people have herniated discs the pain can be worse with bending forward, but that would be uncommon in your age. If it does not improve, it would be worth a quick evaluation by primary care and likely physical therapy.See 1 more doctor answer
I have chest congestion that I can feel up to my neck. When I cough, I get a very sharp pain. What could be the cause of this?
Possibilities...: If it has been present for less than 3 weeks, it is likely acute bronchitis which is usually of viral or bacterial origin. It will likely resolve on its own in a few days to week. If present for 3 weeks or more, it could be chronic bronchitis, a form of copd. This would need a doctor evaluation so treatment could be given.See 1 more doctor answer

It: It sounds like you may have an irritated nerve accounting for your weakness. A nerve may be pinched in your neck due to a disc problem or bone spur. However, the pain in the front of your chest is not the typical pattern for a pinched nerve in the neck. If you have on-going chest pain or shortness of breath, you should be evaluated immediately for a cardiac problem. The neck pain and arm weakness make more sense anatomically. You should see a physician who can evaluate this and make recommendations for further testing (such as and mri) and further treatment (such as physical therapy). Until the cause of this is clarified and until the source of chest pain is identified, I am hesitant to recommend any home treatment.
Whatmwould cause a pain shooting from right side of neck up into head and down the arm? Sharp pain.
Pinched nerve: Occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues. The common symptoms are numbness, sharp, aching or burning pain, which may radiate outward to your ear, eye, pharynx and extremities. Treatment: physical therapy, medications, cognitive behavioral therapy and acupuncture. The treatment is usually effective and no need to die.

I have a sharp pain on the right side of my neck going up to just below my ear. What could cause this?
Muscular pain: You could be having muscle pain due to posture or inadequate sleep or some other reason; try warm application over neck and temples for a few minutes (5-7 minutes) and see if it helps.

I have a burning sensation in the back left side of my head and sharp pain on left side front of head....no neck or back pain any ideas?
Left neck felt sharp pain. Now dull pain and left arm burns n back n top of head hurts. What could cause this?
Probably soft tissue: Assuming you have previously been healthy the source of pain is probably soft tissue irritation (ligament or muscle) causing muscle spasm in the neck. This can cause "referred pain" to your head and arm. A less likely cause would be a disc injury causing irritation or pressure on a nerve to your arm. The symptoms should go away soon, but if not please see your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer

Irritated nerve?: If there is pain, tingling, numbness, or electrical sensations felt when a person moves her head or neck in a particular direction, she may be irritating or compressing a nerve coming out of the spinal cord. A neurologist or a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehabilitation) doctor can figure out the problem and start therapy. Sometimes neck x-rays and / or MRI are needed.
