ok so i have very bad anxiety.
well ive had this headache since last night.
it hurts worse when i turn my head.
i also have chest pain and something in my neck hurts when i swallow. not a sore throat. it hurts when u press on my neck too. its on the left side.

the headache in mostly in the back of my head. but it spreads to the front and sides too.

im always so scared its a brain tumor or bleeding in the brain or something.


im thinking MAYBE i slept wrong.. but ive never had this before. if u sleep wrong can u get a headache too? im so scared :(

It does sound like you may have slept or turned wrong. Can you make a same day appt with your family doc to maybe get something to relax the muscles? I am almost sure it isn't a tumor or anything bad, I just think its a strained muscle. I would try to contact your family doc. Good luck!

Do you think it might be a migraine? I have had that problem during times of great stress. The neck pain definitely could be from sleeping wrong. Have you taken anything to relieve the pain? I'm glad you have a drs appt tomorrow.....please try to hang in there until you can go and talk with him/her. I agree with Nanners....it's almost certainly nothing bad, and related to a muscle strain and/or stress. Keep us posted, okay? ((hugs))

well i was diagnosed with migraines by my eye doc. so i guess it could be. i just always seem to think the worst! im on lexapro.. but im talkin to my doc tmrw about switching to xanax. my mom and sister both take it so im hoping it will help me.

but now im starting to think i did sleep wrong because my neck only hurts when i move it. i think i just got to freaking out as always.

Hi,
 
I agree with everyone else, it's probably that you slept wrong or stress, and yes, you can get a headache from that.  I woke up this morning with a headache and neck ache and know that it's a combination of stresss (upcoming test for school), and sleeping for too long.  I've had insomnia the last two weeks, and last night I was exhausted and finally fell right to sleep when I went to bed and slept for 10 hours!  It's made me feel headachy and kind of funky in my head and my neck hurts too.  I get this all the time.  Usually taking tylenol doesn't really help with it either, just have to put up with it for the day and will feel better tomorrow.  Check with your doctor tomorrow, or call again later if it gets worse, but I think you'll be okay.  Take some deep breaths and find something to keep your mind occupied...sometimes a hot bath with help relax your muscles.  Hang in there, you're okay!

Hey there, try taking something for pain, whatever you use and resting on a heating pad for awhile.  It could do wonders for the neck.

I have a tendency to have a lot of stress in my neck and upper shoulders and I use heat and Ibuprofen which usually takes the kinks out.

Good luck at your Doctors appointment.

I sure hope you are feeling better now. I also get those weird headaches if I don't sleep with my pillow right, and if I get a new one, ouch!

I am praying for you my friend :)

Don't try to over think this as you may have just pulled a muscle or laid on one side that caused the pain to be on one side.

Have you tried the heating pad and NSAID meds?

Skylersmommy you have a doctor appt today. Don't fret so about it, it is more than likely something minor or could even be related to the virus you are getting. Lets see what the doctor says, ok?

there was no way of rescheduling because my doctor
was going on vacay today for 2 wks.

she was running a bit behind because she had to send someone to
another hospital..


BUT i found out there isn't anything seriously wrong. PHEW.
she says its probly just a virus.
she did a strep test and it came back NEG.

i feel alot better now :)

thanks everyone SO MUCH!
