Hey there,

I'm a bit worried about my neck at the moment. For the past month or so it's been feeling really tight (mostly on the left side), and quite often it transfers to my shoulders and one of my arms. I also get shooting pains from my jaw down the left side of my neck sometimes.

I also have a very small lump on the left side. It's at the bottom of my neck, about level with my ear. You can't see it through the skin or anything but I can definitely feel it. Also, further up that side of my neck, the muscles feel very tight, and there may be another tiny lump, but I don't know if it's just swelling or something. The lump has been there for at least a year.

I'm posting this in the Anxiety forum because I'm having appointments with a mental health nurse at the moment and she has come to the conclusion that I have an anxiety problem. My health is one thing I worry about and get very anxious about so I don't know if all this has something to do with that? Naturally I'm assuming that I have some kind of cancer or something.

I can't really go to see the doctor, the health service where I live (Lanarkshire in Scotland) is terrible for some reason, and it takes at least 4 weeks just go get an appointment with my doctor.

Anyone have any advice? Or any idea what it could be? I'm hoping it's just muscle tension but that small lump is making me think otherwise.
