For a long time, I've felt weak and dizzy, had blurry vision, intense pain with cold sweats, lump in throat. What's wrong with me?

See an MD: I don't know how long a "long time" is, but asking online without a physical examination and blood tests is not going to get you the help you need. See your doctor and don't fear the worst; this could be something simple, but even if it isn't then early diagnosis is better than "too late.". ...Read more

Found a big lump below the right ear on the neck. Really tired, and getting sudden dizzy spells. Any ideas?

Lymphadenopathy: What you are describing sounds like "lymphadenopathy", which means your lymph gland is likely swollen. If this correlates with the new onset of tiredness and dizzy spells it is best to see your primary care physician for further evaluation. Commonly, lymphadenopathy is a nonspecific reaction to a viral illness but rarely can be indicative of a more serious illness. ...Read more

I had a lump removed in my neck and they cut the nerve. Can that cause dizziness

I had a lump removed in my neck and they cut the nerve. Can that cause dizziness

No: Which nerve? The important nerves at risk during a neck dissection or removal of a mass would be the branch of the facial nerve to the lower lip (marginal mandibular nerve), the accessory spinal nerve, which would make your shoulder weak. I suppose it would be possible they could have cut the phrenic nerve, which would cause some shortness of breath. None of these would cause dizziness. ...Read more

Hi. I am concerned I have found tiny little pea shaped lumps in my neck and keep feeling dizzy a lot. I also struggle to breath at night time too.

See a doctor: These problems deserve the attention of a physician in person. Without a physical exam and complete physical it's not possible to tell you what is causing the problem. If you are having difficulty breathing, chest pain, weight loss, weight gain, fever, cough, all of these things require prompt attention. Make an appointment or consider an emergency assessment if you are sufficiently concerned. ...Read more

16yo girl. Two pebble sized lumps on back of neck, growing in size, and have been there for a week. Have been suffering dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and headaches. Any ideas??

Likely a lymph node: There are a number of lymph nodes scattered around the back of the head and neck where they are easily found. At rest they may be the size of a pea and when stimulated they are often bean sized or larger. Size often changes over weeks ; often reflects bug bits, skin rashes or throat irritation, it is not likely related to headaches, nausea or dizziness. Your doc can confirm this. ...Read more

Under right jaw I have lump. When I look to the right downward, and turn head upright I feel lightheaded, dizzy. Lymph under arm and neck tender, causes?

Lump a concern: I suspect the lump and the dizziness are unrelated. The combined movements of your head which you describe might make anybody dizzy by slightly compromising the blood flow in your neck. This is not particularly concerning. However, lumps need attention and if it persists for a week or so, along with the tenderness, see your doctor for evaluation, especially if it seems to be enlarging. Good wishes ...Read more
