Severe muscle spasms in front neck. Runs up from both sides of front neck, into jaw and ears. Ears get hot/numb, cheeks tingle. Feels like something crawling in back of my throat. Sometimes feels like someone squeezing my neck or a rope around it. Face turns beet red with exertion. Pain below temple area. Gets tight where sinus and ears drain inside throat. Went to ER, thought I was having stroke...Nothing. Have had ultrasound and ct scan of thyroid...nothing, blood work for thyroid...nothing. Same with jaw for TMJ plus MRI.....nothing. Also had MRI of cervical spine. Found some problems but spinal Dr. said it wouldn't be causing the problems I'm having. It comes and goes all day long but getting to the point most of the time there. Have severe tinnitus in left ear when it happens and hear heartbeat in right ear. Driving me crazy. Spent ALOT on tests to find out what its not. Ibuprofin relieves some. They gave Xanax. Took it at first but it knocks me out. Don't like that. Found condition called sternocledomastoid syndrome...maybe. Started seeing deep tissue therapist...some relief. please helpReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
