See below: Sounds like you may have whiplash. This can occur with falls. You likely strained your neck muscles, but it's also possible to injure the joints, discs, or nerves in the neck. This will result in referred pain to the neck and/or shoulder. Be sure to see a physician for an accurate diagnosis.

The base of my neck where the sternocliedomastoid connects to clavicle area hurts to the touch. What could be the cause?

The base of my neck where the sternocliedomastoid connects to clavicle area hurts to the touch. What could be the cause?

Muscle pain: The most likely cause is a muscle strain. The sternocleidomastoid functions in neck rotation, so a strain can result from overuse of the neck muscles or abnormal neck positioning. Another cause could be infection of the overlying skin and or muscle itself. This would be associated with redness and warmth in the area. Treat initially with ice, anti-inflammatories, rest. See a doctor if not better

Occasional pain, ~2 seconds long each time, behind my right clavicle and up neck. Middle of last night, then again this evening. No other pain.

Occasional pain, ~2 seconds long each time, behind my right clavicle and up neck. Middle of last night, then again this evening. No other pain.

Unsure, see dr to ck: You don't state what might have brought it on, or if nothing particular did. Occasional pain of 2 seconds is not the issue. The issue is whether or not you may be at cardiac risk or not, as young women present with heart attack symptoms differently than men, and can have subtle findings, like slight jaw pain, pain on the right side, and not the left, and often sent home from er. Double check w/ur dr.

What could be wrong if my left neck, clavicle, and shoulder pain all at once?

What could be wrong if my left neck, clavicle, and shoulder pain all at once?

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.

How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?

How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?

By location: Supraclavicular (Not spuraclavicular) nodes are just above the clavicle. If you trace your finger from the base of your neck and right behind the clavicle going outwards towards the shoulder, you will feel a triangular space that ends when the clavicle bends backwards. Any lymph node in that area, will be Supraclavicular. Any lymph node at or above that base of neck is considered neck node.

Hi, 3 swollen node's for 5 years, 2 right side or neck, 1 left clavicle. Largest is 1cm, no further growth or addition nodes. Should I be concerned?

YES: You must be examined, evaluated, diagnosed and treated. You have waited 5 years to ask this question? Get a lymph node biopsy and extensive blood testing.

I have been having a strange pain on the right side of my clavicle and neck area as well as the armpit area. What could be causing this?

Enlarged: Enlarged lymph nodes or "lymphadenopathy" are very common. Lymph nodes are part of the immune system and enlarge with white blood cells to fight off infections when they detect a foriegn substance such as a virus or bacteria. (ever notice lumps in your neck with a sore throat?) usually these nodes shrink back down to normal size a few weeks after the infection is over, but can sometimes stay enlarged. No one is quite sure why this happens, but it's usually harmless. Other illnesses such as autoimmune disease or cancer can cause enlarged lymph nodes, but often multiple nodes are involved, they can get very large, keep growing instead of shrinking and are associated with other symptoms such as fever, chills, weight loss, rash, etc. Presuming that you have no other symptoms besides this noticeable but unchanging node, odds of it being anything dangerous are extremely low. Reasons to see your doctor would include an enlarging node, more noticeable nodes appearing, any other signs of illness or if it concerns you and you just want it checked out.

What causes fluid retention in the space between the clavicle and neck? My endo says its fat but it comes & goes. I'm 127# and 5'4". Ddx?

What causes fluid retention in the space between the clavicle and neck? My endo says its fat but it comes & goes. I'm 127# and 5'4". Ddx?

I agree with your: Endocrinologist. You have ideal body weight and if u have no other issues such as hypertension, diabetes and elevated lipids, this fatty tissue is benign. This is not fluid and this area is not a common location for fluid collection. People with cushing's (elevated adrenal steroids) develop 'buffalo hump' where swelling is in the upper back of the area you're describing. Take care!

I have been on amox 500 mg 3x/day for 6 days, 4 more to go. No change in neck lymph node pain, pain is bouncing on all nodes f/submand to clavicle???

Finish it and see.: You have most likely " reactive lymphadenopathy" due to some infection - Need to finish Amox 10 days and yet after it may take longer to get lymph nodes back to normal sate. Definitly see your MD after course of Amox possible have labs done as CBC + diff., CRP. It may help to figure out of any other probable reason for lymphadenopathy. Ok to take Ibuprofen, as needed for discomfort.

I have a chain of palpable cervical lymph nodes from back of my neck to 2 inches from clavicle. Some hurt some don't. Mostly all movable. What is this?

Many: Most of the time, they are likely from an infection at that side of the body above the neck area (tonsil, sinus gum, teeth etc) But if the node sizes get larger or the enlargement continues for more than 2 weeks, be sure to check with your doctor.
