This evening just started feeling some pain in my neck mostly

Resolved Question:

This evening just started feeling some pain in my neck mostly right sided form bottom center up about 1-2 inches on right side feels tender/pain/maybe swollen. Pushing on left side makes the right side feel just as bad sometimes even worse.

No visible exterior swelling but feels like it under the skin. From pictures it seems to be a lymph node but I'm not sure.

About 1 1/2 weeks ago dentist injected the local into left jaw area and has been painful and was prescribed Medrol Dose Pack Just finished day 4 tomorrow 5 and last day Sunday. Something about the injection causing muscles to tighten up. Have been using ice packs, the Medrol and 800 mg Ibuprofen QID or so.

Headaches but they are caused because glasses are slightly to small and press against me.

Hello,

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

There can be a few possible causes.

There can be a local inflammation.

This can cause tenderness.

A muscle strain is also possible.

You need to observe it now.

If you notice any swelling, lump, I would suggest to get it checked by doctor.

You are already taking pain medicines, antiinflammatories.

Now you can apply heat.

That can be soothing.

I hope this information helps.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent. If you want to click poor or bad service, please stop & feel free to reply & ask till you are satisfied.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification. I hope to work with you again soon!
Regards.

No visible swelling just feeling under skin.


No Fever


Pressure hurts but also feels good at same time


Moving head in certain positions causes some discomfort


Now discomfort has spread to jawline but again pressing helps it


 


Doesn't feel like Mono or anything like that noticing some ear discomfort on that side as well..


 


Advise if ok to wait for PCP og go to Urgent Care or lastly the ER

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
Do you feel any pain inside the ear or any discharge from it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

No discharge


I wouldn't say pain but discomfort for sure


Almost feels like it is full of something although my ears have been strange lately getting warm and such.


 


Yes feels like you put a drop in your ear but its not coming out

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
Ear infection would not cause lymph node enlargement or swelling in the back of neck.

You can wait to see PCP if the pain is not severe or if there is no other sympXXXXX XXXXXke nausea, dizzy feeling.

If the pain gets intense or you develop other symptoms I would suggest to go to urgent care or ER.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Hmmmm


 


Had slight nausea but no vomiting


 


Dizzy feeling can involve other other things as it has happens

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
Are these nausea, dizzy feeling new symptoms & did they start with the pain?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Dizziness comes and goes


 


Nausea is recent addition but it hasnt caused difficulties


 

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
If those symptoms developed along with pain then I would suggest to have an examination in urgent care or ER.

Though there can be other causes as you are having other conditions but in new development of those symptoms, you need to be cautious.
