Pain In Upper Neck Lower Head
For almost three years (90% of time) I have had a large, painful knot in my upper neck (lower head). The pain is extreme at times. Nerves? Muscular?
Muscle spasm: 20's male with knot-like sensation in upper neck likely has chronic muscle spasm. If symptoms are unilateral then chronic head tilting is to be considered. Other associated findings might be asymmetric shoulders with underlying scoliosis and even pelvic girdle asymmetry due to a unilateral SIJ hypermobility disorder. Osteopathy, massage, cannabis topicals, and acupuncture are considerations. Read more
Y does my upper neck/ lower head always hurt like a little sprain and always has a teary cracking sound wen I turn my head right around??? : (
Snap, Crackle, Pop!: You might have a touch of arthritis in your neck that leads to that crunchy sound ('crepitations') in your neck when you twist it. That in turn could lead to some reactive muscle tightness. In some people it gets so bad it leads to a headache. Usually some x-rays help see if there's arthritis in there. The treatment involves medication, massage, range of motion exercises, proper posture and rest. Read more
