Buzzing in head, headache. No change in visual acuity. Any ideas?

I am a 55 year old woman. I have developed a buzzing in my head, not in my ears, but it seems generalized in the middle of my head. I have no history of tinitus, hypertension , or related problems. I have had a relatively frequent dull headache during this same time period. Historically I have had few headaches and just one migrain many years ago. No changes in visual acuity at this time. Any ideas?

Hi and thanks for the query,
A headache of an acute onset, especially accompanied by this buzzing deserves an evaluation by your family physician. This shall be important in distinguishing it from either a primary or a secondary headache. Primary headaches are mainly migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. An appropriate diagnosis forms the basis of an effective treatment plan. Secondary headaches could suggest either a trauma, infection, tumour or lesion of even a far off structure in the body.
An ENT examination shall be important to rule out any associated ENT cause. Your family and medical history are uneventful. However, control of your blood pressure could still be important. Recent activity, amount of rest obtained could also play temporal roles in these headaches.
Consultation with your family physician, and /or a neurologist could be necessary for a definitive and more comprehensive diagnostic and management plans to be drawn up.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
