Anyone have pressure felling on the side of their neck?   I've had this before and it's back and driving me crazy.  It feel like someone is strangling me on the right side of my neck.

Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day  5 months

Neck problems are one of my persistant symptoms and apart from flu like sympoms was one of my first symptoms, I have numbness and tingling up and down my left neck, face and back and occasionally some stiffness and pain too. In the right side of my neck I suffer with varying amounts stiffness and sharp pains (when moving) in what feels like the tendons that hold my head up-right, you say it feels like "pressure", mine feels like constant tooth ache in the rear right hand side of my neck. The pain, aching and stiffness are always worst when I get up in the morning.

I've been on different ABX over the past 9 months, sadly they have not lessened my neck discomfort although they have helped relieve other symptoms.

I started with extremely stiff neck and ended up at chiropractor for first time in my life. then over the next three years, my neck would swell and I ask every single dr. and got a different answer from every one - swollen gland, neck muscle, you name it. Now I know it was lyme. It's still swollen and gets a little stiff but nothign like before starting treatment.
