View Full Version : Tightening feeling in neck

06-29-2013, 05:16 PM
I have noticed a symptom that is odd and is happening more frequently. Mostly it happens after I eat. I am getting this tightening feeling along the artery on the right side of my neck and a pain all the way down my arm to my fingers. It doesn't really hurt all that much just uncomfortable. Now at first I thought maybe I had some type of artery inflammation going on since I get it in my legs but I really don't know. Because I am feeling the pain all the way down my arm too now(especially in my pinky finger) I am starting to second guess my previous inflammation idea. Anyone else heard or have gone through anything like this?

Consider asking your doctor to check your thyroid. There are several reasons that this could be happening, some are serious and some are not as serious. However, the most common theme seems to be an issue with your thyroid. Please ask your doctor and let us know what you find out.
