Causes Of The Neck Such As Choking To Jaw Pain?
Hello, I want to ask. My neck really does like to be stiff, right, usually it disappears soon. But this time the neck felt like choking for a long time, reaching the stuffy ears right and left, hard jaw near the ear as if the flow of blood held there, the face looks a bit inflated there and there is a sense of attraction to the lips. So if you stay quiet, the lips don’t smile. Headache / pain Sometimes when sitting from standing position, it feels stuck in the neck until the head seems to enter the airtight room with no oxygen, then it feels like it is spreading and then it can be like normal again. The sensation lasted only a few seconds but lately it is rather common. Body achy and weak. Upper back shoulder. The neck when looking right and left feels bad. Yesterday’s left hand was weak u0026amp; difficult to move for typing cellphones just hard. Eyestrain. The right jaw if it is opened there is a pain. Why? What is the medical explanation and what if you have to go to a doctor? Because I confused this muscle, nerves, head, ears or there is a relationship between my jaw that is not symmetrical? thanks. Sorry, the question is long.
Hello Mega, Thank you for the question.
How long have you experienced this complaint? Do you have difficulty opening your mouth or experiencing jaw pain when opening your mouth or chewing food? How do you describe the headache you feel?
Your complaints can be caused by various health conditions that can only be ascertained by a doctor's direct examination. Some causes of your complaint are:
temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. TMJ is a joint that connects the jawbone and temple bones located around the front of the ear. This joint disruption can occur in the surrounding joints or muscles. Usually sufferers will experience jaw pain when opening the mouth, talking, or chewing food. In addition, sufferers may also experience swelling in the affected area, difficulty opening the jaw, making a sound when opening the jaw, or jaw that feels locked.
tension headache, which is described as a headache attached to the head. Pain can also be felt up to the neck and shoulders
stomach acid disease
To determine the cause, you can consult further with a general practitioner first. The doctor needs to ask further about your complaints and do a physical examination on you. After finding the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment and if necessary, will refer you to another specialist according to your condition.
In the meantime, you can do the following suggestions:
get enough rest
consume nutritious food
sufficient water consumption of at least 2-3 liters per day
usually to take regular breaks if you have to work at a computer or sit for long periods
do light muscle stretches
manage stress well
do a warm compress on the affected area
take paracetamol or other pain relievers if the headache worsens
