sore neck

Does anyone else out there have or had a terrible sore neck? it hurts so much in the back. Mythroat feels like I can't swollow where it feels like that little adam's apple won't move. even my jaw hurts. I went to the ENT - he wants to see the actual US films .  I called the pharmacist and he said prednisone should not be the cause of any pain I am having.  Would this nodule cause so mych pain ? adn IF it spread to lymph node could this be my pain too.

Wow.  You'd think the prenisone would be stopping the pain.  What are you on prednisone for again?  Sorry, remember brain fog.  Any fever?

Stopped Pred Sunday 50 mcg @ 5 days. Doctor said lung inflammation.


My throat is so sore. I am very upset about seeing the ENT today, My mind is racing at it's worst. Ok the nodule - or tumor as he called it is there. we all know that.

Would you see on a US for thyroid  some other type of cancer, like ie throat or neck or something? This is how nervous I am. I never hurt this bad. I just want to understand.

I just hurt bad.

If there's no fever, and I'm assuming there's not or they would have run tests on you for meningitis.  Maybe an infection in the lymph nodes.  It all came up way too fast, I would think to be a cancer spreading.

A while back I had a sinus infection that drained into my jaw and lymph nodes in my neck that hurt sooooo bad I was crying in agony.  Could stand to even move my head or talk.  I put really hot compresses on the areas to help them drain and take the soreness out.  I used towels I had put in the microwave to wrap around my neck and against my face.

The prednisone may have been masking this, but now it's out of your system so the pain is there.

Hope the drs come up with something soon.
Am praying for you.
