I had protected sex with a girl a month ago. Immediately I felt tension in my neck and sides of my head and the symptoms are still ongoing.?

I had protected sex with a girl a month ago. Immediately I felt tension in my neck and sides of my head and the symptoms are still ongoing.?

Not related: Having sex a month ago seems unrelated to symptoms in neck or headaches, different from STD's. It is easy to get tested for STD's and it is recommended for anyone having sex outside if a committed monogamous relationship. You should nonetheless get checked by your primary doc for evaluation of neck/head pain which might be a variant of migraine or sinus related. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a mild concussion a year ago still have lil symptoms sucn as spaciness, some back headaches, some neck pain. Head tingels will this go away?

Can take awhile &: You are describing a post concussion syndrome with most of your ongoing symptoms that should be evaluated by a neurologist if you have not seen one already. When the brain is injured, it is not unusual for the neck to sustain some injury as well and this should also be evaluated. ...Read more

After a head to head hit in a recent football game, I got a slight stiffness/crick in my neck that soon went away. No other symptoms. Head concussion?

After a head to head hit in a recent football game, I got a slight stiffness/crick in my neck that soon went away. No other symptoms. Head concussion?

YouGotACrickcussion: If you have no symptoms now you're sitting pretty! And just a little neck stiffness does not qualify as a true concussion. More like a neck strain. With a concussion, the brain gets a good bounce inside the skull & you'd be left with a headache & other symptoms. You may or may not have blacked out, but the symptoms last a while, sometimes a long while. The spinal cord can experience something similar. ...Read more

I have painful glands in my neck but no other symptoms of illness. It hurts slightly to turn my head and hurts when I press down on the glands.

Likely inflammatory: Hi Sarah,
Painful lymph nodes or glands in the neck are usually indicative of infection or reaction to an infection in another part of the head and neck. These lymph nodes are responsible for producing white blood cells to help you fight infection. If you are not suffering from other symptoms, I'd give them some time to resolve. If not, see your doctor for a more complete exam ...Read more

4 days now with stiff/painful neck, it kinda hurts slightly into my head. Not bad. No other symptoms. Haven't been around anyone sick. Menigitis?

Stiff neck alone: Meningitis has a symptom cluster of fever, stiff neck and nausea. If you only have a stiff neck, it is unlikely that you have meningitis. See your doctor if your symptoms worsen. ...Read more

Is it possible to be somewhat resistant to concussions? I have taken many hard clonks to the head but never had symptoms. BTW my neck is very wide.

Higher threshold: Some people may have a higher threshold, based on strength, age, genetics, size, fitness, etc., for concussion/brain injury but studies have shown with repeated trauma to the head one can experience delayed onset of brain injury. So be careful and try to avoid further hits to your head. ...Read more

Be checked.: While there are many very benign causes to what you are describing (such as cervical disc disease), I would recommend being checked. Although not real common, neck pain, stiffness, headaches and cold sweats could be a sign of some conditions which are much more serious, even life threatening such as meningitis. Be checked. ...Read more

Fly like symptoms for 4 days. No very painful head and neck on left side only. Can meningitis present with one sided pain and with no fever?

Not likely: Bacterial meningitis usually progresses rapidly once you have it and is very dangerous. Stiff neck and headache can be associated with any Upper respiratory tract infection. If you had four days of fever and these symptoms it would be more of an issue. Although, it is unlikely meningitis, I would see your doctor for a check up. ...Read more

Headache next day following light kickboxing sparring, few punches to head. No symptoms during training. Is it from neck, head muscles? (weak neck)

Headache next day following light kickboxing sparring, few punches to head. No symptoms during training. Is it from neck, head muscles? (weak neck)

Cautious optimism-: A few punches to the head is a loaded phrase and without more details on the characteristics of the headache, it's hard to give you straightforward answer. One approach-if the headache is getting better, then just monitor yourself; if it gets worse, see a healthcare professional sooner than later. It would be a good idea to refrain from getting punched in the head for the time being as well. ...Read more
