Pain from my left ear to the neck

Hi, I feel pain from the back of my left ear towards the back of my head on the left side. This is the second time i'm experiencing this. can I ask for medical advice?

Hello Ann,
Just for the record, this is Chiropractic, not Medical, advice.

There are a number of possible diagnoses, but the most likely is what's known as a Cervical Facet syndrome ... the first two bones in the neck are located just where you describe the pain. See more at atlanto axial joint anatomy ...

This can cause dreadful neck pain and headache.

What's needed is a careful, thorough examination of the area, which may include X-rays if there are features that worry your doctor.

There are chiropractors in Kenya. Find a good chiropractor may be your next step.

Perhaps ask a friend to massage your neck for a few days before doing anything else. Perhaps it'll go away with some TLC.

I hope this has contributed.
