Brief Answer:
Primary headaches to consider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Primary headaches such tension type headaches may result in mild symptoms.

Mild headaches may be experienced also in conditions such sinusitis, in such case headaches are worsened by bending over, by cold, etc.

Stress and anxiety disorder also may cause such headaches too.

If your GP didn't saw anything pointing to a specific condition, treatment with OTC painkillers such Paracetamol, Ibuprofen is sufficient.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Kind regards.

I didn't visit my GP regarding headaches, it was over something else, it is very mild, but I do get it daily, so was just worried in case it was a concern?, should I see my GP about it of just continue with otc medication ?

Brief Answer:
See your GP then.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.

Since you didn't discuss with your GP about headaches, I suggest you to do so, in order to understand better the cause, that, as discussed previously, may be tension type headache, sinusitis related headache or stress related headache.

I don't think this is a serious condition, however it could be bothersome.

GP also may guide you about medication.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

I am having sever stomach pain, it started several weeks ago and has gotten gradually worse. I have no insurance, so I went to the county hospital last week. Once in the emergency room, they ran blood tests to check for H-pilori bacteria. Those were negative. They sent me home with antacids. I went back and the doctor told me I was a drug addict and binge drinker. This was what I get for that. I don t understand the closed mindedness. I don t do either. Never have, although I understand their typical patient. However, I am not one of those, I just have to herd with the cattle at county. I have chronic heart burn, and acid reflux. I most likely take more ibuprofen than I should(historically) and have stopped in the last month after learning more about the side effects. I am highly stressed and have patches of hair falling out on my beard, and head for the last 4 years now. More than likely these are contributors to this problem. Now I am in more pain, and throwing up small amounts of blood. Should I go back to ER? Demand CT, and scope of my stomach? What do I do?

Hi, I am 30 years old. I have been more and more swollen for the past week and tonight is unbearable. Tylenol and ibuprofen aren t helping much. I m so drained and tired but have trouble sleeping at night. I m also catching myself snapping and frustrated. And a mild headache just nagging in the back ground for 3 days. What could be wrong with me? What can I do or try that may help?

I DO NOT have pain/buring/stinging voiding but I am voiding large amounts frequently at times. The other day I swear I voided 500mLs every 30 minutes at least. I am getting a pressure in my pelvic region at times that is painful and makes me feel the need to empty my bladder but I dont have anything in my bladder to void. Trying seems to help relieve some of the discomfort. Sometimes when I get this pain which had a rapid onset I then get rapid abodominal bloating that goes away shortly after, anywhere up to an hour. I am getting pelvic region pain after sex of late and had 10/10 pain in my back on the left hand side probably between the top of my hip and bottom of my rib cage a few days ago that was relieved with ibuprofen and paracetamol. Urinalysis showed SG 1.025, pH 5.5 and Leucocytes small. What might be causing this?
