I feel so worried
« on: February 13, 2014, 04:28:16 PM »
I have neck ache. Had it on and off for a good few months. I feel lumps when I press in. Sort of down the back side. only on the right. I also feel a weird pressure around my throat area.

I've seen my gp numerous times who has examine my neck and said no swollen nodes. Also seen an ENT who said same and he scoped my throat for me.

Because I keep going back to my gp she has said she obviously is not putong my mind at ease so I can go for an ultrasound to be certain (for my own assurance).

Anyway I've cancelled it twice and I'm due to go 25th of this month and I'm basically very scared as I believe I'm going to get terrible news. I feel these lumps and my neck area is sore. So how can it not be bad. Also th pressure on the outside of my throat.

I just feel so scared and that this time something bad is happening.

Can anyone offer advice please?

Hamster, start looking for a muscular reason. My husband has a fused vertebrate in his neck. Causes all kind of neck issues. Another issue may be your pillow or your bag.

My husband is fine btw. It sucks but not fatal or dangerous. He just can't turn his neck as much as other people.

Don't forget that anxiety causes tension which causes aches.

Of course you feel it's something terrible, you have HA.

Anyway, going to ultrasound won't help you in the long run,as you will jump to another illness, so I am going to give you long term advice.
-Stop Googling completely.
-Start working out if you are not doing that 3 times a week for 30 minutes.
-Reduce checking symptoms to one time, once a week only.

This should reduce your anxiety significantly.

If you can't do that, talk with therapist to get some meds and then start applying those 3 things I mentioned previously.

Take care
