Suffering from weird headache.

I have been getting weird numbness around the top of my head which has moved down to behind my eye, and around my temple all located on the left side, my eye is also drooping slightly, is red and seems blurred and to look at seems slightly different size to my right pupil, top of my head and my left temple are tender to touch and it is really really annoying me, previously before this it was just a tingling sensation, has gotten worse and has come and gone over the past 2/3months, what could this be? Its also keeping me from sleeping as I get nervious and twitchy when lying in bed thinking about it, its ussually left painful after a few hours sleep but gradually comes back over the day. Thanks in advance.

I've been to my doctor, I wouldn't go about how to arrange an appointment for a neurologist i don't work because i've been made redundant am constantly stressed and my doctors keep saying am ok looking into my eyes am fine/eyes but still he gives me spray for my sinus's and now am on some drug called amitriptyline, for tension headaches.

 

Id prefer him to just get me booked in for tests and get it done with instead of all these different types of drugs to make me better, but I'l respect his opinion and go along with it inless it gets worse.

 

My Mother got Diagnosed with MS when she was about my age, now i've read it doesn't run in the family but keep forgetting to mention it when I go the doctors.

Hi,

Does it come at specific time of the day, everyday and last for fixed hours?

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 a fair amount of pressure in my head which is relativley painfull. I would also like to add that my mother has osteoarthritis, fibromyelga, and degeneritive discs. So i am wondering if any of those are hereditary because she has had some of the same symptoms.

I have been experiencing headaches for the past few weeks. They are not overly painful, but they brought up some concern for me. They are located all over my head, not centralized to one spot. I have pressure in my temples, behind my eyes, and the back of my head tends to be sore. The top of my head sometimes aches a little bit. I have been taking some sinus medicine and it has relieved it somewhat in the moment. I also feel very strange visually. My vision isn t blurry or anything, it s just kind of...off. I feel like I should be off balance, but I m walking perfectly fine. My head feels like it s spinning, but I can walk perfectly fine....I know that doesn t make a whole lot of sense. I had migraines when I was younger and still sometimes do, but these headaches are different. I am super super worried that I may have a brain tumor or something. I went in for a physical about 2 weeks ago, and the doctor told me my blood tests, urine tests, and chest xray came back just fine. I am in a constant state of fear, I cry a lot, and I fear that I am slowly dying or something. I used to be super super super happy and peppy, but now my mind is just focused on having that tumor and being super scared all the time. These headaches are very strange to me and I am extremely weirded out by the strange vision issues. Please, let me know if you can relate, if you have had these same symptoms and what came of it, because my doctor is going to tell me that I am just fine, I know it....

I have CIDP. I am currently in remission and have regained the ability to lift my feet but still have much numbness in my feet and hands along with a tuning fork sensation. I also have a difficulty with bowel issues, extreme pain, taking an hour or longer to finish, going from a constipated stool to watery diarhea, and I am in intense, gut wrenching pain. I have been in the hosp two time, each time ten days, for passing blood. First time it was ischemic colitis, second time undiagnosed but each time I ended up with nothing passing but blood. I have had an endo and colonoscopy. Nothing showing and I have had extensive testing as I also presented with B12 deficiency, unknown why. None of the regular possibilities, not a vegan nor was it due to celiac or gastro issues, etc. My neuro ran extensive testing. I am stumped, my gastro Dr. is just like oh well and meanwhile, I am in more pain than I can relay. This happens an average of twice a week and more often than not I vomit at the same time, so I have a hard time maintaining weight. History, I lost both breasts to cancer 2004, it was very early stage but aggressive and they did mastectomies for the grade and family history. Also, I was misdx with MS for four years and gave myself shots of betaseron. When the CIDP started really getting bad, it went fairly quickly. Thx.

I was in a car accident on the 18th. I was rear-ended by another driver. Initially I thought I was having whiplash related symptoms but primarily the pain I m having is in my head. I have a constant burning, tingling sensation with pain behind my eyes and in my ears. It s similar to the feeling you have when you are upside down and all the blood rushes to your head. I m having a CT scan on Friday. the only pain relief comes from taking pain medication like Hydrocodine and I m trying to return to work. What is the best natural way (if there is one) to relieve the pain. Also what can be causing the pain? I m also having disorientation, dizziness, and gag reflexes perodically.
