1060036 tn?1259188076 When i try to focus the pressure gets worse at some points, and i only get it when going to class, or driving, when im fairly relaxed i don't feel it as much. how can i get it to go away, are there pressure points, or relaxation techniques or something? Also can this be associated with my anxiety since it started when it did? By the way, the pressure is in my nose, forehead, and sometimes the the top of my head.
Avatar f tn Migraines are caused by not getting enough blood to your head. Push on pressure points on the back of your neck. Increase pressure until it hurts but is withstandable. About 3 minutes of this and slowly release pressure while messaging. Keep eyes closed and don't move for 5 more minutes. Works for me every time no pills.
Avatar m tn At this point, I’m considering whether the muscles and joints in my neck were injured in the accident, causing trigger points to form which have simply not be dealt with properly since that time. From what I’ve read, trigger points can certainly refer headache pain to the areas where I usually experience headaches. However, I am uncertain about the dizziness involved. My question is: Does anybody with trigger points in the neck also suffer with symptoms of dizziness or vertigo?

Avatar f tn Trigger point injections by a physiatrist may be a great benefit to you as trigger points are the main cause of myofascial pain syndrome (aka severe muscular pain). I also have myofascial pain syndrome. I find that along with a muscle relaxer and antidepressant, Theracane therapy helps tremendously. A Theracane is used to apply deep pressure on the trigger points. Repeated frequent use reduces the pain signals released by the trigger points.
Avatar f tn Hi, 24yo female! About 4 weeks ago i was admitted to hospital with severe headache & papilledema! After CT & MRI came back fine i was told i have benign intracranial hypertension, was sent home with DIAMOX tabs which seemed to ease the headaches a little!
Avatar n tn Of course I have the jaw pain and ear pain associated with the biting down on my jaw. But I have never had muscle twitches in my neck. Anyone have any answers?
Avatar f tn I have the same issues due to this condition. The pain from this condition is caused by tight muscle bands around the numerous trigger points in the region. I would recommend self-accupressure. You will need to purchase a Theracane to perform the self-accupressure. They are relatively cheap. Google "Theracane" and many online retailers will pop up that have them available for purchase. I received mines when I was going through physical therapy.
Avatar m tn i went to to my physiotherapist for my backache and neck aches, and he put pressure on head, im guessing it was some trigger points. its located right above my neck left and right side of my head kind of behind my ears. He put pressure for around 30 secs and it was painful while he was doing it. Ever since he did that i have been getting headaches on the side,back and top of my head. My jaw was really tight and painful, the pain for my jaw has gone down now.
Avatar f tn No I meant the opposite. Im sorry....not the needles just having the person push on ur pressure points like back of ur ankles or whatever....like massaging them.
Avatar f tn These are known as 'trigger points'. I have the same sensations at points on my hips and my neck. When any pressure is applied it feels like a surge of electricity goes through me...and it's quite painful. We don't know why those with FMS have trigger points. It sounds like what you are experiencing is referred pain. When pressure applied to one area, effects another area on the body.
Avatar m tn This has controlled my blood pressure but the headache and neck pain with pressure has not gone away. MY right eye hurts sometime when i am trying to get to sleep. When i lay down the pressure in my head seems to get worse. It seems that the base of my skull at the two points in the back is where most of the headaches occur. I am starting a new job that is going to require a lot of physical use of my body along with rigorous workouts such as weight lifting, running and push ups.
1477025 tn?1377468141 I would suggest that you consider finding an osteopathic doctor rather than a regular medical doctor. I also have myofascial pain and it has been taken very seriously by osteopaths I've seen.
Avatar m tn Now a year later I feel this heavy pressure in the back of my neck....No pain into my arm or in my neck - Just pressure and a slight on and off pain in my shoulder. (I also tore my rotator cuff a few years back). I generally feel pretty good in the morning and the pressure gets worse as the days goes on. I feel better when laying down as opposed to standing up. In addition at times I feel pressure in my ears. I did go to an ENT for this twice and both times he said my ears were fine.
Avatar f tn sounds like same pains I get , I have a good chiropractor who has taken the pain away by taken pressure off nevre points in my neck and spine but it reoccurrs after poor sleep positions and too much heavy work
Avatar m tn s necks seem to be trigger points - muscle knots that can become as hard as rock with time. Knots in the scalene muscles in the neck can cause pain and numbness in the arm and fingers. I am a singer and have been trying to remove these knots in my neck with self-massage for almost 2 years. I have massively improved the situation, working on one side more than the other to have a comparison. I had what felt like a pinched nerve in my left arm every time I raised it at a certain angle.
Avatar m tn He said that its due to neck spasm. He investigated my pain using pressure points on my neck, adjusted my neck and suggested below things. 1) Epsom bath 10 minutes/ 2 times a day 2) Ice pack on neck 2 minutes on and 1 minute off for 15 minutes / 3 times a day. 3) Adjustment of my computer screen so that my neck wont get strain. 4) Use left hand for mouse movements at home (any how I will use right hand at office) He asked me to have 3 more visits next week (Mon, Wed, Fri).
Avatar n tn In 2008 I started feeling like my throat was being squeezed. When the pressure is the strongest I also get chest pain. In 2009 the remaining half of my thyroid was removed because the nodules had grown. The pressure and chest pain remained after the surgery. My doctors tell me that it is probably scar tissue from the orignial surgery and the size of the nodules on the half that wasn't removed until 2009.
Avatar m tn It involves pressing on small, constricted, sore points that trigger pain in areas away from the points. For example, a tense, painful know of muscles in the neck might cause pain in the head. In this case, myotherapy would involve pressing on the knotted neck muscles to decrease pain in the head. Myotherapy was developed by prominent physical therapist Bonnie Prudden in 1976. It is very similar to acupressure.
Avatar f tn I have constant pain from my back, at my left shoulder blade that goes into my left shoulder and radiates down my entire left arm. I find knots in my back and arm that feel like bruises. What could this be?
