Pain At The Back Of The Head

Recommended Posts

Salam everyone,

I keep having this wave of pain at the back of my head (the left side only) after every 10-20 mins. It only lasts for about 30 secs and goes away on its own after that, but for the period that it lasts, it is very intense. I have been having it since yesterday evening and it isn''t getting any better. I thought of taking a pain killer like Voren for it, but I'm not sure. What could it be? Can it be shown to a GP or should I visit a neuro or something?

 

Pray for my health please - all of you

 

Stay blessed

Yes - I have a history of migraines, and I have been very stressed out lately too.

 

I will get checked soon iA - just worried as to what it could be as my GP's appointment is next week. Wondering if i could show this to a Neurologist?

I guess it's from tensions in the neck,are the muscles tight there?

Could be a migraine attack. Migraines are generally intensified by tensions in the neck. If you already get migraines due to stress, and in top of that you have tension in the neck, it can get to a whole new level.

I have had terrible days when I was younger with migraines, days in which I would have paid to get my head chopped off.

Btw I would consider going to a physiotherapist for a massage in the neck and back. It did help me with migraines in the past.

If the headache that you're experiencing is:

a)recurring

b)of throbbing nature

c)accompanied by blurred vision,nausea ,vomiting and stiff neck

d)unresponsive to OTC medication and affecting your daily life activities

then its about time that you shouldn't delay getting an appointment from your GP. Depending upon the severity of the symptoms,he/she would refer you to a specialist(neurologist in this case ) only if the diagnosis remains unclear.He/she will run some tests like EEG,spinal fluid test etc alongwith physical and neurological examination which will inturn help your GP to reach a certain diagnosis. Don't ignore recurring headaches. Improperly treated migraines tend to increase the risk of a fatal condition called,"migrainous stroke" and therefore require timely treatment. I'll pray for your speedy recovery.

Thank you so much for replying everyone. I guess I'll get an appointment with my GP for someday next week. The waves of headache are still there and limit to just about an inch-wide area at the back of the head. 

 

I took a painkiller (VOREN) but to no avail :(

^ voren wouldn't help much as the symptoms by presentation are that of  migraine's but nothing could be said before a differential diagnosis by your GP. I'd strongly advise you to stop ignoring the red flags as any further delay would aggravate your condition. Get well soon,sis!
