I have severe neck pain right back side when i move it around. When the pain comes my right ear pops. And minimum arm numbness. Its not sore?

Possible herniated: Disc. Not sure. Ear popping is due to your inner ear, middle ear and eustachian tube. Your neck pain could be from your mastoids which is a bone next to your ear. I would see a family doctor and ask if you need to see an ENT specialist. ...Read more

I've having severe ear and neck pain on my right side especially bad pain behind my ear any idea of what this could be?

There are vital body structures around ear and neck that need to be looked at for your symptoms. In the meantime OTC pain medicine like Ibuprofen can be used for temporary relief. ...Read more

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. http://www.webmd.com/pain-management/guide/neck-shoulder ...Read more

Severe neck pain and tingly pinky finger in left hand. No pain in arm. Is this radiculopathy? Had same symptoms right side 2 months ago.

Maybe: It's possible, but radiculopathy is not something you should try to self-diagnose. You need a thorough history and neurologic exam by an experienced clinician, and, if the doc thinks you need it, C-spine MRI and/or EMG/NCS. I can't tell from your post if this is benign or serious. You should have it checked out. ...Read more
