Head pain with dizziness, give some medical advice

Hi, I am 21 years old and I have been getting this really uncomfortable crunching in the back of my head when I turn my head side to side, then there is usually some pain to follow. I also get a weird grind like feeling when I tilt my head to look up and it hurts after that aswell, (sometimes as it happends). then I feel a little dizzy and off balanced. I also get some pressure in my head that follows these symptoms, and I was wondering what that may be. It is really worrying me and some medical advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I had the influenza A 8 days ago. The morning I woke up with it I had this very weird head pain. nothing I have ever had. its almost like my brain is pressing against my skull. I have high loss of appetite and when I take my glasses off I get very dizzy which has never happened, I do have a slight mucus drainage. but its very light. is this something I should go to see a doctor or can I take an over the counter.

I was diagnosed with CFH in 2015 and was hospitalized four times that year and three times from 11/2016-12/2016 due to having two strokes. Today I went to visit a friend and when I got out of my car, I had a strange quick pain in my head that made me briefly dizzy. Could that have been another stroke? I felt fine after that brief episode. The two strokes I had prior didn t have any paralization results, I did have temparary blindness in my right eye. Im currenty taking only 3 of 9 medications perscribed to me due to no insurance and a pending disability case. I haven t worked since 5/2016, so I cant afford anything more than im getting.
