Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that there is no threat to your life, and you need not worry.

However, I feel you should go to the hospital, and get a CT scan of the head done, as in rare cases, small bleeding inside the brain may cause similar symptoms.

But in most cases, CT scan would be normal, and it would turn out to be a migraine headache.

For pain relief, you can take analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac.

I hope it helps. Please get abck if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,

I have a massive headache after getting my tattoo. I have gotten many tattoos in the past, but this the first time I ve had this problem. It s a sharp pain on the right side of my head. No dizziness but I m extremely nauseous. I ve taken 800mg of ibuprofen but have not received any pain relief after 2 hours. Is it ok to take a Vicodin?

I m using a Lidoderm patch for (light) shoulder pain. I had a rotator cuff tear surgery in Oct. 2013. At times I get pain in the shoulder (while exercising and/or playing tennis). Is Lidoderm the same as ibuprofen except it is in a patch form? Thanks for replying.

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?
