I have pain near both of my neck glands below both ears.
It started on the left side for about 2-3 weeks and now for the last week is tender on the right side too.
There is no swelling and my CBC came back normal.
What could this be?
I do have minor neck pain on the left side running down a bit
Thanks for all the information and your patience with me.Usually pain occur in glands due to infection and when they are enlarged.Since you do not have any ear infection and your blood work is normal this doesn't seems to be cause.Other possible cause is muscle pain or cervical spine disc disease which can cause such symptoms along with neck pain.I would advise you to wait and watch as you have already been to a doctor.If pain persist even after pain killer then you need to get your self examined by a specialist and get investigation like X-ray done.Thanks.
no. But the two parts of my neck that hurt, hurt much more at night.
I just remembered that you asked me about supplements. First of all I did have a cold for 3 weeks 2 weeks before this started. I took amoxicillian for it and it cleared. I get colds more often and stronger than anyone i know. I NEVER get a cold for a couple days like my wife or friends. It's almost always 2-4 weeks and I have to take antibiotics almost every time. Also, I started taking magnesium daily. I am doing this because I have had a lot of skipped heart beats and flutters over the last few years and even though about 4 years ago Dr said I was fine after doing tests, they bother me. The Magnesium seems to help a bit.
