Customer Question

I had an accident in Feb. 2016. Chiro's Lots of appts. eventually I was turned over to the local pain clinic and got shots in my back. I had to skip my third appt. because I got the flu. Somehow I have a swelling in the back of my neck that drifts off to the right. It feels like a pocket of fluid. Dense but not tissue. I need advice as to whether or not freak out or just wait until I can call them tomorrow.

is it tender?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Not at all just big
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 months ago.

So there are no symptoms associated with it?

is the skin red?

Do you have a pic?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No symptoms. No redness. I can take a pic. It's not bulging. Just present enough for me to be able to feel.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 months ago.

Okay please attach a pic

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Not to mention the head ache and the tingly feeling in my head.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 months ago.

That is more concerning

This could be a collection of fluid or blood from the shot.

I would recommend you go to ER and have this checked

I don't need a pic
