I started having pain last evening on the right side only of upper neck rt base of skull. I can turn my head to the right but at a certain point the pain intensifies and nausea.hits and I feel like I'll pass out. The pain goes up over top of my head. Making me photosensitive to the light. If I don't move its not as bad. No pain at all on left side of neck. What is this?
Have you had a migraine attack before? Don't keep a certain position for a long time, such as looking down. From the symptoms you describe, it may be cervical spondylosis. It is recommended that you complete the cervical nucleus magnetic examination.

It could be sinusitis. You should visit an ENT doctor to get antibiotics for treatment.

Hello, through systematic rehabilitation, it can effectively slow the progression of cervical spondylosis, relieve the pain and dizziness caused by cervical spondylosis, and improve the quality of life. The specific rehabilitation treatment programs are as follows. I hope the following information will help you:

1, drug treatment. The use of drugs to expand the blood vessels of patients, improve the blood circulation in the brain, and local anti-inflammatory, can help patients relieve neck pain and relax the neck muscles.

2. Exercise therapy. Exercise can correct the patient's bad posture and strengthen the muscle strength and stability of the neck.
3. Physical therapy. Physical therapy mainly includes neck traction, cerebral circulation, low frequency, intermediate frequency and high frequency treatment. Its main purpose is to relieve the tension of neck muscles and soft tissues, adjust the imbalance of the neck muscles, and alleviate the cervical spondylosis. The symptoms of pain and numbness can improve the blood circulation of the brain in patients with insufficient blood supply and relieve the symptoms of vertigo.
Hello, for the last week or so I have been noticing alot of popping and sometimes pain in my neck. And I am not sure what to do,  I do know I have bulging disc and deteriorating disc up and down my spine as well as arthritis in my back. My question is what can I or what should I do to help it?
Hello, you may have cervical spondylosis. Don't stay in the same position for a long time, such as working down or watching a computer. Do not sleep with a too soft pillow. If you need to move your head, do it gently. It is best to go to the hospital to check the cervical MRI, to determine the condition and see if there is a better way to solve it.

Hello Carisa, I am not a doctor, but I can tell you that I have some of the same symptoms that you are describing. I too have Osteoarthritis, but I also have been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis, Osteopenia, Foriminal Stenosis, Spondylosis, and Degenerative Disk Disease; coupled by moments of paralysis. My pain level is severely extreme. I am scheduled for Anterior Cervical Disectomy with Fusion surgery that will be followed by a Lumbar Laminectomy with Fusion surgery a few weeks later. My suggestions to you is to seek medical assistance from a doctor who specializes in the Spine and Neurological procedures. Get a diagnosis so you can get the proper treatment right away. One of my conditions called Spinal Stenosis, if left untreated can cause death. I hope I helped you by sharing my experiences. I just learned about all of my diseases in May 2018, through an MRI and Xrays. It is now October 2018, and my conditions has become so severe that surgery it's my only option. Early detection is the key, and the differ
I went through all of that. I was referred to a Dr. that put Botox injections in my neck. maybe 15 shots in all. I got these shots every 3 months. My first shot I knew it was gonna work. My whole body felt relaxed. Insurance pays for the injections. What you have is cervical dystonia. The doctor knew what was wrong when I came in the door. Good luck
I have a poor neck, I didn't take any surgery, when I turn around my neck sounds like sand paper. It's because the cervical vertebrae, muscle, ligaments rub each other. This also means that the joint lacks sufficient lubrication.
I have degenerative disc disease. Currently I have 3 missing disc in my neck. Have had those removed and a small titanium plate out into give my neck some support. I now am experiencing pain on left side. Possibly oh a disc. On prednisone and muscle relaxers. I am having pain in the left upper part of neck. Every time I move my neck side to side of sometimes up or down I get a popping sound very similar to popcorn in a microwave. If this not better by end of meds, he will run a MRI to see if this is a disc. I am 73 years old and I am very worried. My last disc surgery was 14 years ago.
I am at the point of SEVERE NERVE SPAMS!! When I let my body relax for just a few minutes. The actual pain dose not start until after the muscles, start to spams. My body stays hyper extended at 45 degree angle. PCP prescribed Roxbain for muscle spams. I am 57 year old female. I cant take the pressure anymore this has been going on for right at 3 weeks now. As a result I have had my third mini stroke 2 weeks ago. Dose anybody know if this a pinched nerve. My neck has always been bad. but now its worse I feel like I am paralyzed most of the ftime.
I would agree it's nerve pain.
