I woke up with a stiff neck and shoulder muscle. My worry is why it was swollen up? Is that normal??

Shoulder pain: Clearly this is not "normal". You have injured yourself somehow. Perhaps you were lifting something that was too heavy for you ar you repeatedly exerted yourself to 100% with the shoulder and have and overuse problem. Ice it 20 minutes 4xday, take some anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen 600mg 4x day) and rest it. If its not better in a week OR it gets worse (Red/hot/more painful) see a doc. ...Read more

Tightness and pain in the left  neck , head and shoulder muscle subsides after lying down ... Why???

Maybe stress: Could be related to stress. Muscle tightness is really nonspecific, and does not point to some dangerous diagnosis. If it is really bothersome, see your primary care for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have excercised and have a very tight right shoulder muscle, right neck muscle, and a vein over right eyebrow that has just popped out. All related?

I have excercised and have a very tight right shoulder muscle, right neck muscle, and a vein over right eyebrow that has just popped out. All related?

Maybe: It sounds like a pulled muscle in your neck. I don't see how the vein over your eyebrow is related to it. Perhaps you have become more aware and focused because of your pain and you notice it now. If the veins in your neck are being compressed it could cause the veins in your forehead to enlarge. Good health ...Read more
