At work I have to squat to the ground to sweep up crumbs and sometimes when I stand up I get Dizzy and if I go back down I get a heart palpitation?

This is a fairly: normal response to squatting. You are pooling your blood in your legs and it takes a few seconds for the blood to get back into your major circulation. In the mean time your blood pressure falls and this makes you dizzy. Palpitations are a common response to the catecholamine response your body has to do to try to get your blood pressure to come back up. Normal physiology. Wear support stockings. ...Read more

Otherwise, look for causes of dehydration or adverse effects of medications. There are rarer causes that may be more serious. If persistent, you should consult your physician. ...Read more

The back of my neck hurts when I look up. When I don't move it I have dull pain on the part where my left shoulder meets with the bottom of my neck.?

Neck strain/sprain: Often no specific injury, but many people suffer neck/shoulder pain unknowingly caused by long-term desk work (looking at the computer all day) and poor sleep position at night etc... I would suggest doing some really good range-of-motion/stretching exercises; use of some motrin/aleve, gentle-warm heat massage may help. If not better, consult doc for a more complete evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

21f getting over a sinusitis i've also got a large mass in my neck(r) sided painless, smooth, hard, i can only feel it when i look up. Had it 2 months?

Get checked: If the mass was noted before the sinusitis then it isn't related to it. Generally neck masses that are only present for a week or two are likely "reactive" and related to infection. Masses that persist beyond a month are more concerning for something else like a tumor. Getting it evaluated would be the first step to know what it is. You may need a needle biopsy and/or a scan. ...Read more
