You may actually: Have a viral or bacterial infection. If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider ; get a strep throat test ; culture. Saltwater gargles are helpful. Mix a tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day.

Give it time.: As long as you don't have trouble breathing, speaking or swallowing you should heal fine, especially if this is a new event for you & it clears within a few hours.

Torticollis: The Sternoclidomasoid" Muscle goes into spasm. I believe this what is happening to you. It is a benign condition. Nothing to worry about, although it is painful and cannot turn neck in all direction. Rx Anti Infalmmatory like Ibuprofen Ice application, Local Muscle recant like Bengay /Flexall/Deep heating and Oral Muscle Relaxant will help you. And if not better in 24 H. get examined by your MD.

Inflammation: Pain and redness in the front of your neck is consistent with an inflammatory process, and the thyroid gland is in that area. Acute thyroiditis may be the problem. Your symptoms warrant an examination promptly. Blood tests will include thyroid readings as well as cbc, etc in order to make a diagnosis.

See a doctor ASAP: This could be quite severe, depending upon whether the problem is in the throat or due to infection extending from a dental source into the neck. You should be seen and examined in order to be accurately diagnosed. Don't delay as this may progress rapidly. Good luck.

Will my enlarged gland in front of neck kill me if it stays big no pain or symptoms also will massaging them hurt it and help the swelling?

Will my enlarged gland in front of neck kill me if it stays big no pain or symptoms also will massaging them hurt it and help the swelling?

See ENT doctor: It is unclear how long you have had this, where is it located and how large it is. It could be an enlarged lymph node, a thyroid nodule or goiter, a thyroglossal duct cyst, or other mass. The treatments will all be different, thus it is important to find out the cause. An ear-nose-throat specialist or otolargyngologist, would be someone that could help make this diagnosis and treat it.

Sounds: Sounds like you've taken a reasonable approach till now, but the time has come for you to see an orthopedist. It's not at all uncommon for neck and shoulder symptoms to intersect. A good history and exam along with appropriate x-rays and possibly nerve testing and MRI will give an answer in a majority of cases and then you can be appropriately treated. Best of luck.

? related: Neck pain and headaches are common. So are skin lesions, like pimples, on scalp. Infection can be a common cause.

Left sided headache from front of head to back. Mainly temple and around ear. Hurts when bend over and cough and sneeze. Intermittent pain in neck?

See below: You may have an irritated disc or joint in your neck. Coughing and sneezing increases the pressure in the discs of your neck which may suggest this is coming from your disc more than the joints or muscles. Neck pain can cause muscle spasms that refer pain to the back of the head often causing headaches. See your physician if symptoms don't improve within 1 week.
