neck pain near carotid artery

Answers

2 Answers

Drs dissected carotid artery during a procedure 2 yrs ago. now I have neck pain, numbness in left arm, headache. Why?

Many reasons?

Thoracic_outlet_syndrome
Conceivable that there is post-op scarring which has involved nerves in the brachial plexus, and this could cause both arm numbness and headache. Also, could have independent neck disc or arthritic issue. Whether this is vascular in origin needs to be assessed. Consider a "thoracic outlet" like process in the upper plexus.

I have coronary artery disease. I have been having shoulder pain, blade, neck pain at rest with walking, and with chest pain. Could it be my neck ?

Primary care screen

With a history of coronary artery disease and smoking , your primary care doctor needs to make sure that the symptoms are not related to your heart. If not, a physiatrist can further evaluate to deteine if there is a component related to the neck. In general, walking alone, without turning the neck, should not exacerbate neck pain

How to deal with carotid neck pain caused by anxiety?

Depends on

Anxiety
Depends on what kind of pain. It seems that you are describing pain in the lateral area of the neck, not actually in your carotid artery. I would recommend to be evaluated for medical therapy for anxiety and you may be a candidate for muscle relaxing medication like flexeril. Other non-medical therapy can include massage therapy, neck exercises and possibly acupuncture .
