Hi Yojana, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Since how long do you have this Problem? Do you have Vision Problem? You may be having Migraine. Kindly get yourself examined by a Neurologist to rule out the exact cause as you will need medications.
Avoid stress and Practice Yoga and Meditation, sleep adequately and get adequate rest.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

I was having lunch on Friday when suddenly, out of the blue, right side of my neck started hurting. I could not turn my head to the right and barely to the left. the pain was only on the right from my shoulder to below my ear. About 6 hours later, I could turn my head slightly and by Sunday I was able to turn it completely. Now there is no more pain and everything turns, but I m wondering what happened? It was so sudden and I ve never had anything like that before.

Hi I fell over a week ago, thought I landed more on my right side and that my shoulders took most of the brunt of the fall from landing on my forearms, I didn t think i d injured my left side as much. I know I knocked my left leg as well but from the next day onwards I ve had localized pain in top of left thigh and hip when walking and resting. Also a little boy sitting on the floor at my baby s party accidently knocked into the same leg with his head and what would normally cause not much discomfort did infact cause awful pain in that leg - the only way to describe it... it felt as though from my knee upwards had been pushed out of place (it hasn t) but it s now very painful to walk. Can also feel pain in the same localised area when my 6yr old and 1yr old sit on my lap... hip is also still quite painful. I m thinking it s just badly brused on the inside and wondered how long recovery would take... Would appreciate any advice you could offer - thank you

Experienced a sharp stabbing pain on left side top of my head that seemed to run through my eye into top of my teeth. This caused me to tear up and lasted what seemed like several minutes. After immediate pain stopped it still hurt in my teeth after 15 minutes. I have not stared any new meds or done anything out of the ordinary. What could be the cause? Do I need to be concerned?
