Why does my artery on the right side of my neck hurt?

Why does my artery on the right side of my neck hurt?

I don't think you: Can be sure that it is your artery, because it could be muscle, lymph node, or vein, or even pinched nerve. Unless you had an injury, it could be something serious. Please show it to a doctor for specific diagnosis and treatment.

Why does the right side of my neck feel heavy and hurts when I move it to the side?

Why does the right side of my neck feel heavy and hurts when I move it to the side?

Neck strain?: Hard to tell from your question without a complete history/exam. Did you injury it? Did you overuse it? Is this chronic/acute? Is there swelling, fever, etc? So have a clinician take a further look.

The right side and right back side of my neck hurt really bad what's the matter with my neck? And how can I fix it?

The right side and right back side of my neck hurt really bad what's the matter with my neck? And how can I fix it?

Depends..: Did you suffer and injury? Did you do any erratic movements? It is important to know how pain started and what other symptoms you are experiencing at this time. If you didn't suffer any injuries or recent accidents, let's say you just woke up like that;icing the area 15-20 mins three times a day helps. However, it is always good that you visit your doctor. Ask your caregiver to take you for check up.

Why dos the left side of my neck hurt when I yawn?

Why dos the left side of my neck hurt when I yawn?

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.

Neck pain: 1st I am a psychiatrist. Depending on the force and mass of the object you could have herniated a disc on opposite side of the trauma. See a doctor and try to get a mri.

I am a smoker and I smoke cigarette butts I want know y my neck hurt on my left side like someone stabbed me there?

Many Reasons: Your neck could be hurting for many reasons. See your doctor to find out. Your smoking, however, is by far the more serious problem, as it can lead to lung cancer, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, laryngeal cancer, chronic pain, depression, and early death, as well as decreased quality of life. Please quit!!!!!!

Why would one side of my husband  neck hurt when he touches the arterie?

Carotidynia-: There are a variety of reasons for pain when touching parts of the neck, like an inflamed lymph node, a growth, pressure on a nearby nerve. However, there is a condition called carotidyina where pressure on the main neck artery (the carotid artery) causes pain. The pain is continuous, dull and throbbing, may stretch to the same side jaw, eye, ear and cheek. Cause unknown. Treat with nsaids.

My head killing me one side of my head my neck hurt when I try to move it from side to side?

Is it: Pounding or throbbing? Does light or sound make your headache worse? Are you nauseated? If so you have a migraine headache. 80% of migraines are associated with neck pain. If it is not a migraine then it could be a terrible headache from the spasm in your neck. For a migraine take 3 excedrinrs and lie in a cool dark room and sleep it off. For the other take Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen), ice or heat, md.

Tension: These are probably muscle contraction tension headaches. Relief of stress is the best treatment. Discuss this with your physician who will decide whether you need brain scan, neurologist consultation and antianxiety therapy.

hit my head in a corner of a table it hurt so much just the left side were I hit when I try to turn my head on the left side my neck hurt I feel slow

ER: You need a visit to the ER to check your cervical spine and a neurological exam and possibly a CT scan to rule out a bleed on your brain. Stay calm and go to the ER or call 911. Good luck.

Could sinus have your left side of head and neck hurt?

Sinusitis?: Possibly a sinus problem could be causing your symptoms, but left head and neck pain could be musculoskeletal or other problems. Much more information is needed to give you proper advice. See your primary doctor first and consider seeing a specialist after this.

One of the arteries in my neck hurt and looks bigger than the one on the other side but I had ultra sound on neck a few months ago everything was okay?

One of the arteries in my neck hurt and looks bigger than the one on the other side but I had ultra sound on neck a few months ago everything was okay?

Carotid Ultrasound: An ultrasound of the neck is an extension of the physical examination. If every was normal on the ultrasound, that is good news. If your symptoms are persisting, or the artery is getting larger, it is time for a check up.

Woke up spinning with vrtigo. Lasted 3 days. Been dizzy on and off for two weeks. Left side of neck hurt when turn that way. Still dizzy?

Labyrinthritis: An inner ear infection due to virus could cause sudden intense symptoms you describe, and usually, some lingering problem for a few week afterwards. Perhaps you experienced some vomiting and thus, strained left neck, or injured in some other way. See your doctor, and get some physical therapy, both vestibular and for neck. Should recover.
