Question: neck pain
|ama_nan - Wed Aug 04, 2004 10:58 am||
my neck has been hurting where my arteries are. It is not a constant pain and yesterday it hurt more on the right side and today it is more on the left. I have also have these weird headaches but I have always had those
What could it be and why would your neck hurt at this location?

Neck pain has many causes.
The most common is most probably muscle strains from wrong positions taken by patient during their work or during their sleep.
A very common cause also, is arthritis of the neck but i think that you are still for that. Other causes might be secondary to inflammation or infection. Referred pain is also another cause.
For the time being, i would recommend following the pain and if it gets worse, i recommend that you contact your doctor to be have a physical exam.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
