Question: I been a diabetic for more then 30 years. I have neuropathy in my feet, stomach and bladder. To day I was getting sharp pain on the left of my head that sort of reminded me of the neuropathy pain I get in my feet. Could it be neuropathy? I could not find any info on the net about neuropathy in the head Is it possibile?

Brief Answer:
DIABETES complications;

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for asking on HCM!
Fortunately there is no head neuropathy as a complication of Diabetes manifested with acute sharp pain. Diabetes can affect the nerves in the brain, causing neuropathy but is not manifested with acute pain.
As you know, Diabetes can affect the blood vessels of the brain ( atherosclerosis) narrowing them and being a cause of stroke.
Usually, it is not manifested only with acute pain but you should control ( once a year) the blood vessels that supply the brain ( carotid arteries) with doppler ultrasound to prevent stroke.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
