I have a painful gland in the back of my neck, stiffness when I turn my head and corresponding shoulder pain. Ideas?

See below

Neck pain with stiffness usually comes from degenerative changes to the disc or joints. The pain can commonly refer to the head, shoulders, or even shoulder blade. If there is a "pinched nerve" in the neck this can also lead to shoulder blade pain.

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.

Localized spinal pain, shoulder blade height, that radiates up to neck and skull base, making head turning painful for past 5 mths. What can it be?

Trapezius muscle pai

Pain
Trapezius muscle pain with spasm. Are you sleeping on only one side? Do you do a repetitive job? You need a mild muscle relaxant and a good massage. Physical therapy will help you strengthen the muscles that are weak. Warm compresses and stretching will help as well. Good luck! Feel better.

My Trapezious Muscle in my neck has been extremely painful for some time. I am now having pain in my head (brain) is this, or could this be related.

Trapezius

Since the trapezius muscle covers the back of the neck, stress or strain on that muscle may cause headaches. Are you performing any exercises that strain that muscle? Is your pillow a problem? Have you been troubled by mental stress and anxiety? If so, see your physician who may refer you for psychotherapy or prescribe antianxiety medication and/or muscle relaxants after your evaluation.

Dr. Qamar Khan answered:

Is permanent sharp throbbing pain in one side of the head,neck and back pain and scalp sensitive to touch and painful symptoms of occipital neuralgia?

Yes and No

Neuralgia
It could be Occipital Neuralgia, however neck and back pain are not typical symptoms. I would suggest having your neck evaluated as well since many of those nerves can travel to both the neck, back and head to cause the symptoms you describe.
