Right side neck pain, headache, slight numbness

Hello,

I donít know where to begin or what to look for, but here goes.

A month back I had started feeling dizzy all of a sudden. I was prescribed vertin and was diagnosed with labyrinthitis after consulting the ENT. My blood reports, glucose tests, urine tests were normal. My B12 level was 176.

All this while I also have been having a bad neck pain on the right side. Doing some physiotherapy resolved it for a bit.

Now two weeks back, I have started experiencing very strange sensations that has got me very worried.

My neck is stiff most of the time. I can feel a tender spot in the side of the neck (right side). Pressing that tender spot causes excruciating pain right upto my shoulder and arm. During this time, I have felt a slight pressure on the right eyes and a bit of pain in the ears (right side) including fullness in right ear. What is strange is that while chewing or talking, there is a weird sensation in the right side of my forehead (almost electric feeling). This doesnít hurt but is causing discomfort as it does not go away. When I tilt my head to extreme left, I get a ringing sound in my ears. The pain isn't sever in head.

All this while I can feel that there is tightness in my neck/shoulder region on the right.
What is even more strange is that if I press the tender spot in the right side of the neck (SCM region maybe ?), that electric feeling stops in the head.

Iím concerned about this condition and I canít find any answers to it.
I will be meeting an orthopedic doctor soon, but I wanted to know what I should be doing next.

Any help will be appreciated.

Re: Right side neck pain, headache, slight numbness

All of your symptoms point to the deep muscles in your upper back, shoulder blades and neck. I am glad you are going to see an ortho, as the doc should recognize this and be sending you to physical therapy. This therapy works at taking the knots out of the muscles, releasing the pressure on the blood vessels, that are causing all these symptoms. This source is often overlooked by doctors, and patients go on to suffer needlessly, when the treatment is an easy one.

Re: Right side neck pain, headache, slight numbness

Just an update.

I met the ortho, and he suggested that this was nothing but neck spasms that were causing all the headaches. I'm currently performing exercies that the doctor has asked me to do, and currently I'm pain free.

On a secondary note, my B12 and D vitamin levels are low. So I am currently taking supplements for this deficiency.

Currently I'm feeling 95% (much better than what I was feeling a few weeks back). I have again started going to the gym, and my life is already a lot better!
