What is Neck Pain?
Pain located in the neck is a common medical condition. Neck pain can come from a number of other disorders and diseases of any tissues in the neck. Some common conditions that cause neck pain are degenerative disc disease, neck strain, neck injuries such as in whiplash, a herniated disc, or a pinched nerve. Neck pain can be caused by common infections, such as a viral infection of the throat, which may to lymph gland swelling and neck pain. Neck pain can also come from conditions affecting the muscles of the neck, like fibromyalgia and polymyalgia rheumatica. Neck pain is also called cervical pain.
Neck Pain Symptoms
Neck pain is commonly associated with dull aching. Pain in the neck is often made worse with movement of the neck. Other symptoms that are experienced with some forms of neck pain include numbness, tingling, tenderness, sharp shooting pain, difficulty swallowing, pulsations, swishing sounds in the head, dizziness or lightheadedness, and lymph node swelling.
Neck pain can also be associated with headache, facial pain, shoulder pain, and arm numbness or tingling. These symptoms are often a result of nerves becoming pinched in the neck. Here is an example, compressing the nerve of sensation to the back of the head, which comes out of the neck, causes headaches in the back of the head. Depending on the condition, sometimes neck pain is accompanied by upper back and/or lower back pain.
