About 5 months ago I was hospitalised with suspected meningitis. (Blurred vision, fever, neck pain, dizziness, headaches). Tests came back negative and I was told it was a virus, but for weeks afterwards I had a persistent pressure at the back of my neck, dizziness and was exhausted. After 2 weeks with little improvement I returned to my doctor, who said it was probably just taking me a long time to recover from the virus.
Every now and then, the headache is also accompanied by a low-volume high-pitch ringing in my left ear. And at times the pain will radiate into my left shoulder. I could live with the pain and discomfort if that's all that was involved. But the pain also comes with severe dizziness and light-headedness. Dizziness to the point that I have fallen several times, and it makes everyday life very difficult.
As time passed I tried to deal with it till I had a job where I had to look up while lifting my arms and that would instantly give me the worst neck pain, headaches and dizziness. It would last 2 or 3 days. If I continued to work like that despite the pain my vision would start to blur and I couldn't read things. For days it would feel like one of my nerves was being pulled on my head and necks right side. It would start in my temple then move to the back of the eye.

Hello - my wife has been suffering with dizziness, anxiety, headaches and neck pain for about three years. We're researched pretty much everything and have seen various doctors. We think the primary cause was a very challenging labor that resulted in an unstable pelvis. She recently had an MRI done on her brain and spinal cord and everything came up normal.
There can be several reasons of your tachycardia, dizziness and neck/head pain symptoms although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern.
If you had an MRI scan done on the spine, any abnormality would have shown up on the imaging. Headaches, fatigue and dizziness can also be signs of stress and anxiety. As you experience some of these symptoms when getting out of the lift, it appears that there is something not right with your neck bones. Make an appointment to see your doctor and ask to be referred to the Triage service. Triage is higher than a physiotherapist. Let me know how you get on.
If you are 14 and use computer a lot or read a lot then the symptoms of headache, dizziness, neck pain, numbness etc could be due to compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, herniated disc, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc. A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. Please consult a neurologist.
For just over a month I have been having headaches that don't go away, however over the last week they have been lessening and are just a pain at the back of my head (top of neck). Sometimes I also suffer with sharp pains at the top of my head in various places. I have been having memory loss problems and have an ongoing dizzy sensation, which get's worse when I go outside, which means I don't go out a lot. I have felt like this for 1-2 months now and it's worrying me.
It is important to rule out migraine which is characterized by severe throbbing headaches and sensitivity to light, dizziness and neck pain. Other possibilities are neck issues like cervical spondylitis or cervical disc prolapse which can cause headaches, neck stiffness and dizziness. At this point it is also important to rule out neurological causes like stroke, meningitis, brain growth and aneurysm so a CT scan or MRI of brain is a must.

For over a month now I have had dizziness, and other symptoms. I get headaches intermittently, and today I have a pretty bad one. Sometimes I have pain like behind my eyes or my eyes hurt like I have been up too long, and I just can't focus on anything (even though I am not having vision problems). I have also been really spacey lately. Sometimes it is hard to concentrate and I realized that I have been "spacing off" a lot lately.

I suffer from get headaches (often) and do get blurry vision ocasionally. I do not sleep weel, and suffer from neck pain, for some time now. I have had a "complete" heart check up, and the doctor says my heartfunction is perfect. (icw., dizzy spells and numb feeling in my left arm, light chest pains) Does Tavegyl (the allergy medicine) not have any side effect ? If yes, what are they ? Also is there anything I can do to stop these allergies ?
Have you been involved in a car accident at some point? If you are spending a lot of time at a computer, that can cause neck problems and headaches. Stress can make you feel tired and dizzy and give you headaches. But it can also be an indicator that your blood pressure may be too high or from an iron deficiency causing anaemia. I would advise getting checked out by your doctor to rule out hypertension and anaemia. Keep out of draughts.
I've been told by doctors that I have an inner ear virus that will affect me my whole life randomly -- causing dizziness and crackles/swooshing. But, I also have chronic pain where head connects to neck and between neck and shoulders, nausia, dizziness, focusing issues... I don't have a history of any specific events leading to it either... so hmm.
Furthermore, I get pins and needles in my head, eye-ache, headaches and the feeling of a 'full' head and sinuses - and in the last 3 -4 weeks I have started to get very puffy eyelids. It is always much worse when I am at work (surrounded by 5 computer screens for 11 hours per day) - however at weekend/holidays the dizziness (and other symptoms) can abate completely or become much less severe.

A mutual friend set me up with another internist and he checked my arteries in my neck and my left one was blocked. At the time I was only 31 and it was quite shocking. My platelet cells were too high and my blockage was a blood clot. I was immediately put on Coumadin (blood thinner) and my symtpoms pretty much dissapeared immediately. I don't mean to alarm you, but it wouldn't hurt....it's done by a doppler ultrasound on both sides of your neck. Takes a few mintues and is painless.
I have been having constant pain in my neck and head/sinus for a few months now. My Dr. keeps giving me antibiotics because he seems to think that it is a re-occuring sinus infection. I am so tired of feeling like I just got off of a rollercoaster with all of the dizziness and nausea. Does anybody have any suggestions????
I doubt MRI will show anything. I am going after neck right now (because of stiff neck and pain) and see if I can get any relief from PT etc., Sometimes neck can cause all kinds of problems and there is even cervical vertigo which is tough to diagnose and treat. I let you know if anything works.
a week later had three strong massages to back and neck. I have been under extreme stress and suffer from anxiety for the last 3 months... A few days after these massages, I got very dizzy - very bad. No dizziness lying down, only when up and about. Blood sugar good. BP good. I seem to get better in the afternoons. Dr. put me on antibiotics thinking it was a sinus thing - not much different.
My ears also hurt and I also have headaches, nausea, tiredness, and am extremely dizzy. My left hand also feels weak. I had a MRI 6 months ago and everything came back negative, they found nothing. Previous to that I had a CT scan done 2 years ago and everything normal. I have no family history of brain tumors, and was just wondering if a brain tumor could develop that fast (6 months) and cause those symptoms in that amount of time, please help?
