Need some helpful advice ASAP ...
« on: July 06, 2014, 08:58:37 PM »
I need some advice as I have a symptom and I'm not sure if I should go to hospital or watch and wait. I have a habit of going into panic and heading to the hospital or dr every time I get a new sensation so need some unbiased advice. I have developed a very deep intense pain down my neck from the front through to back running the length of the vein/artery. I have pain in and above ear and sharp aims through face . Feels like mild tingling in face. Eye heavy on that side. Haven't pulled any muscles and doesn't hurt to move just painful when running finger down and throbbing sharp otherwise.  Dizziness with vertigo when lying on affected side! My concern is  spontaneous arterial dissection in neck. Should I go get it checked at A&E or just let it ride it's course and pray it's nothing serious . Not sure how to handle this as I've never had this particular pain before. Not easing with pain relief and  I'm terrible with my HA making a rational decision.
Could someone please advise on best course of action  and their opinions x

If it doesn't go away in a few days it could an inflamed nerve or something. Sounds like seething my cousin has that's totally treatable. So just give it a few days and then see a doctor if the pains continue.

I took one for the team and googled the symptoms of what you're worried about (it's not the kind of thing I worry about so I figured I was safe!).  Your symptoms do not match the thing you're fearing. 

DO NOT GOOGLE IT to make sure; you'll find a way to freak yourself out somehow and I don't want to be responsible for that.  But I do think you'll be safe waiting a day or two to see if it resolves.

Yes. Don't google anything. It's not a doctor.

Yes a nerve. That's what I thought. Hope it feels better. :)
