default
Posted on Thu, 30 Mar 2017 in Headache and Migraines
Question: hello, I have been having tension like headaches for 4 weeks now. I am not stressed, i drink enough fluids and i sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours a night. I normally get a headache in my frontal lobe. Recently i noticed a new trend with this headache instead of being in my frontal area, it went to my parietal lobe and occipital lobe. It was accompanied my a tingling sensation. I also have a stiff neck, dizziness on standing, confusion and fatigue. What can I do with this headache? Do i seek treatment?

Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Thank you for posting your question on HealthcareMagic.
The pattern of headache which you are describing could be anything from a simple vascular headache like migraine to more complicated issue.
I would recommend you to get a CT scan of the brain done at the earliest.
If there is anything there you could consult a neurologist to help you depending on the result .
Meanwhile don't take stress eat well and sleep on time .
Revert back with the report of the CT scan.
Hope this helps
Best wishes
