Muscle pain under the ear back of the neck. Is it gum inflammation?
Q: I’m a woman in my early 20s. I’ve had pain from under my ear to my right neck since three days ago. I couldn’t open my mouth the next day. The gums are swollen, too. I have a pain in the right back of my neck now.
I squeezed my muscles a little bit and my right eye hurt. I also have a headache. I can’t stand it. The pain in the back of my right ear and back neck is also very severe. My shoulders hurt, too.
My right gum is also swollen. It’s hard to work. Why did he do that?
A: There may be severe inflammation in the lumps of cervical nerves under the ear. In this case, severe pain occurs under the ears, neck, head, eyes, and shoulders.
It is usually caused by tension, but if the gum is swollen, it is likely that gum inflammation has spread to it or that the lymph nodes have swollen. First of all, go to the dentist and check your gums for medical treatment.
