I have dull headaches which are now more sharp. I hear high pitched ringing in ears and also buzzing. I feel a sharp neck pain at base of skull. Could it be a TMJ flare up? What should I do?

Likely TMJ: Headaches and ear pain are many of the presenting chief complaints of patients with tmj. You can sort out the ringing by protruding your jaw forward when the ringing occurs. It protrusion of you jaw changes or eliminates the ringing sound then there is a jaw connection. Either way you should see a dentist specially trained in tmj. ...Read more

The past 2 days, I have 2 lumps behind my right ear & severe neck pain. I went to dr. & said it was swollen nodes possible infection. Is this normal?

Not Normal: Swollen neck nodes is common and often is from infection. Can be bacterial (like strep throat) or viral (like "mono"). Other more serious problems should be considered if it doesn't get better. This could include hodgkins disease or non-hodgkins lymphoma and would require a biopsy for diagnosis. Other blood tests can help. ...Read more

I have episodes of a dilated pupil with headache, ringing in ears, feel strange and neck pain. Normal scans. I was prescribed depakote. Any ideas?

Need more info: I have a lot of questions I'd like to ask you. There's several possible diagnoses, and regardless of which one, Depakote is a medicine I'd hesitate to prescribe to a 29 year old woman. It has long term side effects including weight gain, hair loss, and tremor and can cause birth defects. I'm available for a virtual consult if you'd like to discuss diagnosis and treatment plan. ...Read more

I would see your primary doctor for this first. ...Read more

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?: 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. ...Read more

I have severe neck pain and the back of my head is also in pain more on the right side than the left. Swollen glands constant feeling of pressure?

Muscle spasm: Sounds like your neck muscles that extend up into your scalp are irritated. This may have been triggered when the lymph nodes rapidly enlarged. Why is another question - they respond to perceived threats to your body like infection. Moist heat, mild stretching and some ibuprofen might help. Massages good too. If continues or worsens see your MD.
