Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS

Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more

Chances are not BUT: Simply based on probabilities and statistics the chances of a swollen lymph gland and "visual" problems probably is not cancer of any type but you haven't supplied enough information about your symptoms nor have you provided any results from a CT or MRI of the head or neck to say for sure.

2 weeks ago on my left side of head  started have  spasms and affect back of my head , neck and shoulder .This is make me really uncomfortable?

Neck, not head: The commonest scenario for the cluster of symptoms you describe is a disc problem or arthritis in your cervical spine (neck). Spasms imply strong, uncontrolled muscle contractions. Scalp muscles are relatively puny compared to the more massive neck muscles which the likely source of your pain. Shoulder radiation is common with neck issues. So see an orthopod, physiatrist, neurologist, or your doc. ...Read more

Hi , I am ramya. I am 24 years old. I have severe headache and left side of head is stabbing. My neck, shoulders pain as well.

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons, and you can get the associated shoulder/neck pain. Make sure you check it out with your doctor and get an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

My neck hurts on left side when i turn my head i get a pain in left side of head and ear sometime. What might make this happen?

Cervicogenic otalgia: This may be caused by a pulled or sprain muscle that attached to your neck to the outlying bones of the ear. Referred pain from an irritated or pinched nerve can also cause this. Other conditions are possible. You should see your doctor for an exam to make sure its nothing more serious and to get the correct diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Neck pain on left side. I also get a pinching feeling in the same side of head and the back of head starts burning?

Neck pain on left side. I also get a pinching feeling in the same side of head and the back of head starts burning?

May be pinched nerve: If the pain that you feel is worse with bending your neck to the side and slightly backwards, it may be a pinched nerve (radiculopathy). The symptoms usually radiate to the arm or shoulder under those circumstances. If your symptoms are slightly better in that same position, then it could be myofascial pain or spasm. These indicators are not absolute but should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

Tightness on left side of head, shoulder and heaviness on left neck & ear subsides after lying down .y?

You need an exam: Tightness on one side of the head and shoulder along with neck and ear heaviness, that is relieved by lying down, suggest a mechanical cause. It may be due to several possibilities. These would include, among others, muscle strain in the neck/shoulder area and possibly a pinched nerve coming from your neck. Although the latter would usually cause pain, when turning your head to either side. ...Read more
