I have had vertigo for some time, shortness of breath, and chest pain for about a month. I get a stress test monday. about 2 weeks ago, I began having stabbing right occipital pain, received Indocin, not helping, yesterday, headache became constant with intermittent stabbing pain, pain shooting down right side of neck. this morning i became nauseous and all day, things don t taste the same today. I moved my neurology appt. from friday to tomorrow because the symptoms are so painful. Midday, My head became tender to touch in that spot as well as tingly and sensitive to touch. before christmas i hit my head there and seen stars but it seemed ok til now. my eyes are strained and intermittently, i find that my focus is off, blurry, very briefly, any thoughts?
