Avatar f tn when i started the seroquel 5 days ago i had a slight headache hardly anything. but now 5 days later my headache is very bad.
Avatar f tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Generally, one sided throbbing (or sharp) headache (or discomfort) & orbital pain (eye pain) with numbness symptoms could be suggestive of migraine. Factors that may induce your migraine attack may be excessive pills, stress or depression, bright lights, loud noise and traveling. The mainstay of the migraine treatment is always to identify the triggering factors and to avoid them.

Avatar m tn Take a combination of Excedrin Migraine and Excedrin Tension Headache. 4. If you have a prescription Migraine Medication take that. 6. Lay in complete darkness after taking whatever medication. Now I can tell you this doesn't always work but 9 times out of 10 something above will help. Good luck and I hope you feel better.
Avatar m tn Other causes are- too much caffeine or its withdrawl, eye strain and fatigue. A headache diary may help you to identify and avoid your headache triggers. Please note down the day and time the pain begins. The diary must include notes about what you ate and drank around the time when the headache started last, how much you slept and when, and the your routine immediately before the pain started. You can figure out if you had any unusual stress.
Avatar f tn tension headache. One sided headache that is throbbing in nature with dizziness/nausea symptoms could be suggestive of migraine. The mainstay of the migraine treatment is always to identify the triggering factors and to avoid them. Triggering factors could be different foods such as cheese, chocolate, alcohol and even few fruits.

Avatar m tn Thank you for your question. 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. Any throbbing headache that you are experiencing needs to be evaluated for migraine, cluster & tension headache.
Avatar f tn Other factors that may induce your migraine attack may be contraceptive pills, stress or depression, bright lights, loud noise and traveling. Few women experience headache more commonly during the time of their menstrual periods & at the time of hormonal imbalance. I would suggest careful record of events that have proceeded with the attack and avoid those factors. In addition, try to rest in a dark & quiet room, meditate, have a balanced diet and avoid taking unnecessary drugs.
Avatar n tn but have been on Inderal in the past and do know that Inderal can cause or further depression. If you mom is still having problems with depression, she/you may want to talk to the doctor about changing her medication ... there are other options available. Either way, it is important to keep taking this medication until such time the doctor would work with her to change it. Here's some information on Inderal from the Internet ... WHAT IS INDERAL? Inderal is a beta-blocker.
Avatar f tn Children should be referred to a pediatric neurologist, The proper treatment will depend on several factors, including the type and frequency of the headache, its cause and the age of the child. Headache education: includes identifying and recording what triggers your child's headache, such as lack of sleep, not eating at regular times, eating certain foods or additives, caffeine, environment or stress.
Avatar f tn Talk to your Dr about how you're feeling. To me, it sounds like you have possible depression going on. I'm not a Dr so I can't say for sure. Many of the symptoms are there though.
Avatar f tn Depression can present itself with physical symptoms. I have had many of these symptoms, and have even been to hospital, where everything was negative. With anti-depressant medication I am now feeling very well. People are surprised that depression can give so many different physical symptoms.
Avatar f tn The latter is a true medical condition whereby instead of a patient experiencing depression or anxiety, they experience physical symptoms, and once the stress is addressed, the symptoms resolve. Depression can also cause various physical symptoms, such as fatigue, headaches, generalized tingling or other pains and other symptoms.

Avatar f tn I was off my depression meds for five days. Yesterday had nausea, headache and was dizzy. Could being off meds cause these symptoms ??
Avatar n tn I cannot give a clinical diagnosis over the internet, unfortunately, so my advice is limited and should not supplant another formal opinion There is no clear indication that you have a primary neurological disease by your symptoms. Common neurological symptoms that might indicate a neurological problem include headache, visual loss, difficulty with language or slurred speech, double vision, weakness or numbness on one side of the body, or clumsiness on one side of the body.
Avatar n tn can make neurological symptoms worse. However, one has to be concerned that the symptoms are real and that anxiety is making them worse and not causings them. Our perception of reality can vary according to our mental state. This does not make the symptoms less real to the individual however. If a full work up was done, then your symptoms might be due to a conversion disorder, anxiety, etc. I would first make sure that the symptoms are not real.
Avatar n tn i would say everyone 's ARS symptoms are different. from what i heard by chat, they all experiences different degree of Fever, but some of them had sore throat, some had rash, some went to hosipital for intensive care. even their symptoms occur on different period, the fast one like on day 8, and quite many said after 3 weeks.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if this could be a psychogenic headache as I have been diagnosed with major depression and am taking antidepressants and antipsychotics. My concern was that it has been said that psychogenic headaches usually go away once the psychiatric disorder is resolved. My headache has not improved even though my depression has lifted and my psychotic symptoms have lessened. Is there anything else I can do to treat this head pressure which may be a psychogenic headache?
Avatar n tn They gave me a anti seizure medicine and imitrex to take, neither of which are doing anything for my headache. I had to stop taking the imitrex all-together because everytime I did take it my symptoms would get increasingly worse until it wore off.
Avatar m tn I then awake every morning with what I think is a tension type headache-like a band the base of my head. When I stand up or sneeze, it will help for a moment. I sleep on a cervical pillow on my back, with a small wedge pillow under the back of my knees. I sleep with a NTE device on my teeth, so that I don't clench. I do various stretching exercises and those for the neck muscles. I have had MRI's, sleep studys (no sleep apnea), deep tissue massages.
Avatar n tn EVERYDAY, i have a headache. no, its not a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10, probably not even a 9. but it never goes away. never. there is so much pressure i feel like its going to explode. this has been going on for weeks. occasionally it will turn into what my dr thinks is a migraine, complicated on occasion by vertigo. however i have not yet had extreme light sensativity, only sensativity to sound. and when i have the headaches my field of vision is funny. grainy almost. dreamlike.
Avatar f tn I eat healthy throughout the day and have no other symptoms apart from fatigue. I sleep regularly, except when the headache is so bad that I cant. Over-the counter medications don't seem to work. I've been to several doctors, had sleep and allergy tests, and MRI and a CAT scan. I've followed their advice but nothing has made it better. It becoming unbearable and is affecting my work. The only other thing I can think of is mood swing.
Avatar f tn Rapid recovery from major depression using magnesium treatment. Major depression is a mood disorder characterized by a sense of inadequacy, despondency, decreased activity, pessimism, anhedonia and sadness where these symptoms severely disrupt and adversely affect the person's life, sometimes to such an extent that suicide is attempted or results. Antidepressant drugs are not always effective and some have been accused of causing an increased number of suicides particularly in young people.
Avatar f tn Everything came back normal except in the ultrasound it showed I had a thickened uterus lining and was put on birth control to alleviate some of the symptoms of backpain and all the above symptoms. Anemia/iron/B12 deficiency was ruled out. I was also diagnosed with depression and anxiety/panic disorder several years ago. I feel as if I'm a hypochondriac. Also, every time I travel sometime far away, I come back home and am sick-it's like clock-work.
Avatar n tn Hi There. I have been suffering from a headache for a week now. It started behind my eyes and had spread to the base of my skull, temples as top of my head. It is worse st times but constantly there. I have been to the doctors who prescibed me with anti biotics (on monday) as my glands in my throat were slightly swollen, I hd to visit the doc last nite as it was really sore he checked behing my eyes and made me touch my nose with the tip of my finger.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 25years old and for the past week I have been experiencing these stabbing headaches on the right side of my head, always in the same area. They last as long as a normal headache would, ie i have to treat it with tablets. The worst it has become so far is to the point where my side of my face was numb, and then my arm started to ached (all on the same side). The times are not constant, the last episode happened this morning at 4am.
Avatar m tn I've had a headache for 17 days now. I've had no real changes in diet, physical activity, tobacco or caffeine consumption, liquor consumption, etc. I haven't had problems w/ nausea. I have had very mild cases of vertigo, sensitivity to light and sound; although probably related, these sensitivities have been really insignificant throughout the duration of my headache. I'm not taking any medications or using recreational drugs. I've had no head trauma.
