Headache sore neck dizzy

Common Questions and Answers about Headache sore neck dizzy


Avatar f tn Today I had one without a problem but I just had one a minute ago and it made me a bit dizzy and has given me a headache despite being on anti-inflammatory painkillers (strong ones) The headache seems to be coming from my sinuses and a bit from the back of my head. The neck gland, by the way, has been enlarged for the past ten years and gets bigger when I am sick. When I get better it goes down but each time I get sick it goes down to a slightly larger size than before (i.
Avatar f tn Physiotherapy will help you and hence you should learn neck exercises to relieve neck strain. Even though you are young, get your blood pressure checked. This can also cause headache with dizziness. TMJ is another possibility. If you have been out in sun a lot or drink less of fluids then it can also be due to electrolyte imbalance or dehydration. Benign intracranial hypertension also causes dizziness with headache and a spinal tap is confirmatory. It can be a migraine attack too.
Avatar n tn I haven't found any solutions to these symptom, Only found after a night sleep, it gets better, in the morning, But as the day goes on, my neck becomes sore and headache, the sudden dizziness I mean like a sudden wave to head, not so obvious. And also a little shaky when walking. It seems worse after eating, but not sure if it is exactly so. This with Gerd make me quite frustrated, I felt what I had is so weird. Any good advice is appreciated.
Avatar n tn We reviewed the dizzy feeling that I constantly have and so far the treatments have not helped the dizzy. The sharp neck pain has let up, but I do feel an ache inside my neck that goes up to the base of my head. And 2 days ago woke with the bad migraine headache and the severe dizzy is back! Any suggestions of who/ where I should go next.

Avatar n tn tension headache, migraine, dental, anxiety, ear infection, muscular (neck), sinuses, etc. But I can only describe the way it is? Mostly the blood pressure in my face, head and neck and the feeling of an overall infection just waiting to explode is the most worrying. All I want to know is why so I can tackle the root cause. My face and neck becomes rapidly very red and visibly enlarged when bending over.
1108194 tn?1378428122 I have had this massive headache all week. About midway through my neck glands really swelled up. I went to my doctor and she told me it could be strep. I have 1 little white bump on the back of my throat. It is pretty red. I do not have a sore throat or fever. I do however have this massive headache. Nothing touches it. Its worse in the am. Any suggestions? I am on Ceftin for the strep. How long does this thing last? I thought you had to have a sore throat with strep?
Avatar n tn About three weeks ago, I went to sleep one night after downing an entire bottle of water, and was rolling around during the night with some slight nausea, thinking it was because I drank the water way too fast. I woke up the next morning with a sore neck and left shoulder, thought nothing of it, and went to classes. The weather here has been crazy for late fall....hot and cold, rainy then sunny...no consistency what so ever.
Avatar n tn 2 weeks ago i felt a sharp pain go up the back of my neck and have felt dizzy (kind of like a hangover) ever since,my eyes feel irritated and watery and the 2 muscles in the back of my neck have been sore and since i have no insurance at the moment i am desperate to find a solution! Also been having crazy dreams.
Avatar n tn I went back to bed and they still were sore when I woke up. I am not large (34 a/b) and they did feel less sore as the day went on but were sore again when I woke up the next day. They don't hurt as much now but kinda feel tender right along the underwire bra. It's not just one boob but both? Any ideas? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn When I turn my head quickly the headache spreads for a second or two. The pain in my head is always on the top of my head. The back of my neck is always tense and sore and tingly. I don't feel stressed, only when these symptoms come on me. I just got over a bout of gout. I used to get a lot of ear infections because I used ear plugs at work which now I have switched to muffs.
503727 tn?1210442710 I am always lightheaded and feeling dizzy. I feel like I could pass out at any second. This is ruining my life. Im scared to do anything alone. I cant go to a grocery store, mall, nothing. I am too scared that I'm going to pass out and I have tried to overcome it but I cant. As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this.
Avatar n tn And I have pressure in my head that can still occasionally make me feel dizzy and I have numbness/tingling from the top of my head back to my neck...that can't be normal. I have no cold, no stuffiness in my sinus, no sore throat, no cough....no nothing associated with actually being sick. And usually people with Migraines have a bad reaction to,light and often have nausea...I DO NOT. What is wrong with me? Do I have a big tumor growing in my head or am I having an anurism? What should I do?
Avatar n tn It feels like it is burning, spasming, especially right between the shoulder blades, and I can't lie or sit comfortably. My head is tender and sore, and there are spasms in my neck and shoulder area. I have been to specialists at Mayo Clinic, UCLA, USC, and local neurologists, and no one can seem to help me. All I am able to do is hopefully manage the pain through the cortisone injections, but face it, that can't be great for me either. I really am at the end of my rope.
Avatar n tn For the past month or so I've had a gradual dull headache that seems to be getting more persistent. The headache can be described as right temple dull ache (with tender to touch), that sometimes occurs on the other side of head and then pressure is felt behind eyes, forehead and nose. I do have hx of sinus headaches, but these feel slightly different in two ways: 1. sometimes sharp pains accompany it and 2.
Avatar n tn A number of 'red flags' make a scan essential, such as a focal neurological abnormality on examination, worst headache of your life, loss of consciousness, fever with neck stiffness etc. Amitryptaline when used for facial pain is usually for 'trigeminal neuralgia' - pain from the nerve supplying the facial skin - but this pain is usually very severe in paroxysms, so it does not sound like your pain.
Avatar f tn I was wearing a helmet, but hit and rattled my head pretty good. I was dizzy and had a headache, but did not think much of it. Possibly a mild concussion, I hadn't been too concerned. I have fallen off plenty of times and had been to the hospital only to hear you're just sore, which is fine, but why pay to go every time to hear that. Its been around 9 months since that fall and ever since then my neck will get really stiff and the base of my skull hurts. This will last for a few days.
Avatar n tn felt GREAT, not dizzy. this lasted one day. no more fever but back to dizzy. now it is chronic.i get a headache every day, 800mg. ibuprofen helps a little.also for 3 days in a row had blind spots( first day negative scotoma, then positive areas of light) in right eye only. i have had(rarely)migraine auras without headache before but using the sparkly lights. these only lasted about 20 minutes so GP says migraine. I wonder if related to dizzy, headaches.
Avatar m tn In late December, early January I started having headaches all day and dizziness blurry vision at the end of the day also. I started noticing a sore neck. Neurologist gave me gabopentin which I am unsure if it helps. In the last couple weeks I have started having terrible abdominal pain and chest pressure after eating. The pain/pressure is mainly at the center of my chest. The dizziness, neck pain, etc.. are worse also.
Avatar f tn F, 16yr, physically active in sports, daily headache in the frontal region, starting with a 'headache &throat infection' 10 mth back. Also has neck problems, tension in the base of head CT and 2 MRIs (Probably head / neck?) hopefully were Normal? All blood tests normal. Seen by neurologist. Has had massage by chiropracter, physical therapy (by physiotherapist/ physiatrist?) On Elavil (Amytriptylene) and Topiramate for a few months.
Avatar n tn It may be due to your spine either not being alligned correctly or maybe a neck injury of some sort. Have you had a neck injury recently? These things can come about days, even a week or two after the initial trauma. Try icing your neck and prop your head up with pillows. I would suggest a chiropractor, but DO NOT go to a chiropractor until you've seen your primary care physician to determine other causes.
Avatar f tn sore behind them in absence of a headache, can hurt looking around, go outside hurts behind my eyes, focusing at distances & light increase. Shooting electrical/tingle down hand and fingers sometimes when I open my hand all the way (r.g. reaching to grab something). Involuntary muscle twitch/spasm (brief spastic movement) primarily in legs and feet.
Avatar n tn plastic surgery in July (breast reduction and tummy tuck; high blood pressure and I am hypoglecemic. My PCP states he heard something in my neck and has ordered a Caritoid Ultrasound but I am concern that this is not my problem and it is something we are missing. I am having a low grade headache;some low grade burred vision; dizziness when turning over in the bed and some facial pain behind my eyes. Please tell me if we should be looking at other things.
