Can a cervical herniated disc cause throat pain?


Answer by  maber (1427)

Since cervial discs are near the throat, if you have one displaced it can cause pressure on the throat that can lead to pain and discomfort over time. If you are feeling severe pain in your neck, you should see your doctor to see if there is not a more serious problem.

Yes it can cause disc throat pain due to the nerves that travel along side the disc. It travels up to the throat.

No it can cause alot of pain in other place but if you have pain in your throat you need to go in and see your doctor there is something else wrong and it needs to be diagnosed. You may have some form of infectin in your throat and you will want to get it treated.

I have not had this problem but I believe that if the disc presses on a nerve to the throat you could experience some type of throat pain. I believe it would depend on the area where the disc is bulging. Wherever the nerve goes it will transmit painful stimuli to that area.

Usually cervical herniated disc donot cause throat pain. It given severe pain at the back of your neck. You shouldnot sit in the same position for a long time especially while watching TV, working in computer or while doing ofice work. If you Wear a cervical collar by the advice of an orthopaedic surgeon, it will give some relief.

if the pain is before few days and you have a herniated disc for a longer period (mounts, years), it is hard to say that it is the reason for your pain. however if the pain appeared nearly the same time, the answer is yes, the pain spreads around.

I have had a herniated disc for over a year with severe pain and have now developed an esophageal disorder with the muscle in my throat. I believe the two issues are related due to muscular and nerve damage over time.
