Terrible Headache, ear pain, neck pain and lightheaded for a week. Nothing helps. Could this be Meningitis?

Possible: Just because it may not be meningitis does not mean don't get care. Meningitis is characterized y neck rigidity, sudden high fever and altered mental status. All 3 are present only about half the time. Sometimes photophobia, or intolerance of noise. But you have severe headache and neck pain (you may be calling neck rigidity "pain"). Please get medical help ASAP. Hope you get better soon. ...Read more

June 20 experienced sharp shooting pain on R side of neck below the base of the head. Ear pain/severe headache. Felt neck pain earlier in the day.

Carotid dissection: Is one cause of neck pain on one side of the neck that shouldn't be missed. It can cause a stroke, so if you can call your doctor for a carotid ultrasound (or go to the emergency room) as soon as possible. If there's a dissection, then antiplatelet or anticoagulant (often for 3 months) is treatment to lower your risk of stroke. If no dissection, likely nothing dangerous. ...Read more

Could an earache cause severe neck pain?

Could an earache cause severe neck pain?

Not likely: I'm a spine specialist, not an ENT doctor, but I've never run across any data to show that an ear problem can cause any severe neck pain.

On the flip side, problems in the neck can cause pain to be felt around the ear.

I'd suggest seeing an ENT doctor in your area to evaluate the ear. If normal, then find yourself a spine specialist. ...Read more

I just wanted to know can earache cause severe neck pain?

Probably not: If you do not have a hearing loss associated with the earache, it is unlikely that you have an ear infection. There are other structures at the side of the face including the jaw joint, jaw muscles, teeth, lower jaw that may refer pain to the neck. See either an ENT doctor or your dentist for a more specific diagnosis. ...Read more

Earache, on and off voice hoarseness, neck pain, swollen glands, occasional congestion for 3+ weeks. Oc drugs don't help. Concerning?

Based on you question it seems your symptoms are related to allergy and there may or mey not be any infectious process. You need to consult your doctor and may benefit from allergy medicine and decongestants, if there is no evidence of infection in throat or ears, if there is one then you may need antibiotics. ...Read more

Am having neck pain and earaches and headacheseveryday I think I might have an brain tumor or cancer plus shoulder pain by my upper back pains I want to go have an cat scan but I already been for other things

Cluster of symptoms: Hard to say with a general cluster of symptoms what may be happening, but if they are significant they should be evaluated. Conditions such as brain tumor are quite rare and ct/mri scans may be ordered by a physician after a thorough history and exam. Don't ignore your symptoms, but be cautious about jumping to the most severe conclusion without more of a work-up. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I am experiencing ear pressure, ear ache (severity: moderate) (quality: throbbing sensation, sensation of pressure or fullness) and neck pain.?

Doctor can evaluate: In an older child or adult, pressure on one side of the head, with some earache, can be from an ear infection, a sinus infection, or some problem inside the throat. A doctor can evaluate to see if antibiotics are needed. Sometimes, shingles can happen on the head and cause theses symptoms (antiviral medicine is the treatment).
