Suggest remedy for severe headache and pulsatile tinnitus

Hi I have had persistent daily headaches for 2 and a half years, in 2010 had a sudden extreme headache combined with neck stiffness and drowsiness was taken to hospital with suspected meningitis which was ruled out by lp!! Had MRv 4 weeks after and said suspected aneurysm or calcification in left cerebellum, ct was then done around 2 months later without contrast and was told lipoma in quadrigeminal cistern!! From may last year started experiencing intermittent numbness, pain and pins/ needles in limbs and face mainly right sided and have now had these symptoms intermittently since!! Pulsatile tinnitus started April this year combined with drunk like feelings, had mri and mra which were clear except for dominance of left sided blood vessels been told headaches are most likely migraines and been put on beta blockers and zolmitriptan as and when required!! Returned back from holiday 2 weeks ago and prior to that I had been feeling ok, on the plane on the way home my right arm and right leg kept going dead and since have had a constant headache which is worse on waking and nothing is shifting it!! It hurts more when I move my head and the pulsatile tinnitus is back with a vengeance, it has been constant now for 2 weeks any advice would be much appreciated!!

First of all,the lipoma should be removed surgically without further ado.Because it compress the blood vessels and the surrounding brain tissue resulting in severe symptoms.I hope I answer all your questions.

Hello! I developed Pulsatile Tinnitus in October 2013 in my left ear. It hasn t stopped since! Around the same time I developed dizziness and nausea and occasional rushes from my heart up through my neck. I have had CT scans and seen a cardiologist......they say everything appears normal.....yet it is destroying my nerves and my life.

About two months ago I began to feel a pulse in my ear. It was on and off and began to get more severe. Now I have pain on the side of my face, down into my neck on the right side and radiating into my right shoulder and back of my neck. I am 31. My family has a history of aneurisms and heart disease. I m quite concerned and cannot get in to see my doctor for over a week. The pain is much more severe today.

My 26 year old daughter was diagnosed with a Complex Migraine after a brain scan and Lumbar Puncture came back normal (Friday). She returned to the ER on Saturday with severe neck pain - unable to move up/down or left/right. After IV pain meds, she was told that possible fluid leaked from puncture. Today (Monday) she is still in much neck pain and is now experiencing pain in her arms. Do I take her back to the ER for a third time? The pain meds she is taking is not helping with the pain. Are these symptoms normal post lumbar puncture? Thank you very much.

I have been having lightheadedness, foggy vision, and fatigue. I also have been getting migraines above the eyes as well. What could this possibly be? It has been going on for 1 week now....I thought it was sinuses but they cleared up and I still feel these symptoms.

I have a history of migraines and pseudotumor cerebri, low tension headaches as well as run of the mill tension and barometric induced headaches. The migraines and PTC have not been a problem for a long time. I take tizanidine at night and still abuse caffiene. A couple nights ago out of no-where I suddenly felt like meat cleaver was splitting the center of my brain. I found instant relief by doing valsalva, finally found an imitrex and the headache resolved in about 15 minutes. I am very familiar with different headaches and my concern is why the valsalva worked as well as the imitrex, the two seem to contradict each other. The next day the moment I felt a headache starting I took an imitrex and hydrocodone which aborted the headache, a BMP drawn at the office was normal. I do not appear to have any neurological deficits but I am concerned. I have had numerous MRIs (though none in the last decade), and notice no vision changes. I would be very grateful for any insight. Sincerely, Nancy

i fell and hit my forehead about a week ago and was left with a long lump from my hair line (in front of my temple) to my eyebrow bone. i hit the eyebrow bone really hard and it also blacked my eye and the table that i hit had a really sharp corner and poked a pretty deep hole in my forehead at the end of my eyebrow(the end of my eyebrow closest to my nose). i didn t go to the hospital or doctor and now i am having really bad headaches that seem to last all day long and at times are like migraines. i have had migraines in the past. my neck is really stiff and at times the headaches seem to generate from my neck.
