Dr. David Chrisman answered:

I have dull headaches which are now more sharp. I hear high pitched ringing in ears and also buzzing. I feel a sharp neck pain at base of skull. Could it be a TMJ flare up? What should I do?

Likely TMJ

Headaches and ear pain are many of the presenting chief complaints of patients with TMJ. You can sort out the ringing by protruding your jaw forward when the ringing occurs. It protrusion of you jaw changes or eliminates the ringing sound then there is a jaw connection. Either way you should see a dentist specially trained in TMJ.

Dr. Chris Faubel answered:

Cause of sudden severe neck pain? I have not sustained an injury and it hurts on the right side. It is painful to turn my head right but not left

Cervical facets?

Pain
I can't say for sure without examining you, but in my patients, this presentation is usually a cervical facet joint issue. You should seek out a non-surgical Spine specialist (physical medicine or anesthesia pain doc). Without major trauma and without severe radiating pain and weakness, this is unlikely to be a surgical case. Could be as simple as spasming muscles that only needs PT.

Changes in vision, new onset of new symptoms all suggest a need fora fast evaluation. If these are more chronic, then see a neurologist. Severe pain should NOT be ignored.

Sore neck and headaches base of skull hurts goes away with heat application it's more annoying and constant.sore neck muscles too.what can I do?

Evaluate posture

Muscle
Sore neck and headaches that resolve with heat are usually benign and commonly related to muscle tightness or overuse. The first thing I would do is evaluate the activities I do on a regular basis and neck posture doing those activities. A common problem is a computer screen that is too high or too low requiring prolonged periods of time looking up or down.

What to do about a painful lump and throbbing at base of skull on left side?

See a doctor

Head
for a physical exam. The lump may just be inflamed portion of a muscle that you've subjected to a constant strain with poor posture or it could be something very different. Impossible to tell.

What would cause posterior cervical lymph node pain and swelling? R neck is swollen, pain from base of skull down to front of neck/throat

Many possibilities.

Cervical
There are a variety of things that could cause these problems at your age. Infections(cat scratch disease, mononucleosis), dental /sinus disease), are most often the cause. However, more serious problems occur in this age group. Please see your internest, ENT. Or Oral/maxillofacial surgeon ASAP.
