Acute Eye Ear Neck: Blurry vision is an issue especially if you have not experienced this before & IF it is STILL continuing as you read this. Please have the source of the blurred vision PHYSICALLY checked out. Tonight. Had you not included this vision info, then I would have been suspicious of your upper cervical facet joints causing acute dull pain in the left side of your neck with radiation into your ear.

Nerve impingement?: Can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging. It can cause muscle spasm and back pain. Prevention treatment is always recommended. This condition must be professionally managed. See interventional pain management specialist for definitive diagnosis and management. It is the same as a pinched nerve. Read more

Many strap muscles: First, if this has been going on for a while, it needs to be looked at by your doctor.
Do a google search of neck muscle anatomy (look for photos) and try to figure out which of the strap muscles is in the location of your pain. There are several layers of muscles so you may need to study a few different diagrams. See if palpating and stretching a specific muscle helps or aggravates your pain. Read more

I have lymph node I feel on right side of neck, also suffer with migraines. Should I be worried that I get neck pain, headaches all on that right side?

I have lymph node I feel on right side of neck, also suffer with migraines. Should I be worried that I get neck pain, headaches all on that right side?

Seek competent help: You should have someone check this out and the sooner the better. Lymph nodes do not become swollen without a reason and pain is an indication that something is wrong. See your doctor as soon as you can and get professional help to determine what is the cause (s) and what are the effects. Read more

To add, neck pain, it's like some of nerve function went away. Correct me if incorrect, even if I have palpitations I can't feel that. Inhale, right side of neck feels like pressure is put on it.

Muscles: You probably have some sort of muscle strain in your neck. The spine up in the neck can cause problems in your arm as well. Regarding palpitations, people frequently DO feel this as a fluttering sensation in their chest. Sounds like you should see your primary doctor for an evaluation, the timing of the appointment being based on the severity and duration of the symptoms. Hope this helps! Read more

Doubt infection: I doubt this is an infection. Shingles is caused by the chickenpox virus and if you've had chickenpox or had a chicken vaccination your risk of chickenpox is low. Shingles can occur at any age but especially is more common as we age. Read more

What might lead to neck pain left side of neck?

What might lead to neck pain left side of neck?

Multiple causes: Without knowing your history, it is difficult to give you a direct answer. Usually neck pain is caused by irritation of a spinal structure-e.g.-disc, facet joint, nerves. These in turn lead to muscle spasms. Other structures that reside in the neck may also be responsible for the pain-esophogeal inflammation, carotid artery dissection, myocardial infarction, etc. Bottom line, see your doctor. Read more

Ultrasound-Reactive lymph node side of neck, pain comes and goes. Stays swollen, neck pain sometimes. No other symptoms. Antibiotic didn't help. Why?

Ultrasound-Reactive lymph node side of neck, pain comes and goes. Stays swollen, neck pain sometimes. No other symptoms. Antibiotic didn't help. Why?

Lymphadenopathy: Reactive nodes are responding to drainage from an inflammation in the area which drains to those nodes. If the antibiotics did not help then either it is not a sensitive bacterial infection, or the site of the infection is not being reached by the antibiotic (dental abscess, other). Have you ever been exposed to TB? Read more
