Hi!

I am 23 years old and need some help.
Since 4 months I am not feeling so good.
My head feels like a big watermelon, its heavy and I have bad pressure in my whole head.
The next thing I have is a blurred vision and I am extremly dizzy. It seems like the whole room is spinning and turning.
My neck hurts as well. I am fatigue and sometimes I have a ringing in my ears.
I can go to bed and wake up in the morning the symptoms are still there.
My doctor tried to give me some ibuprofen but it dont helps at all. It takes the pain in my neck away for 1 or 2 hours but the rest dont changes at all.
Almost every week I have a terrible pain in the right side of my head.( it goes all the way from my forehead to the back of my head) The pain is hard to describe but it feels like if somebody would stretch a rubber band in my head and when I turn my head to the sides he lets it go. It is terrible and it hurts extremly for ca. 1 minute, sometimes it starts burning. I have to hold my whole head when that happens.
I had to go to a CT last week and have to wait for my results now.
One thing worries me the most. My mum had 7 years ago a subarachnoid hemorrhage caused from a ruptured aneurysm . Even my Grandfather has an aneurysm.
I am scared because I dont know what to think about my symptoms.
Could it be that its only a normal migrane?

Bye
Sloopy

Oh I almost forgot something.
I had a car accident in february 2004 and ca. 4 months later my symptoms started. But now it got worse.

Hello sloopy and Welcome!
I assume you have been to see a doctor since you mentioned you just had a CT Scan, have you shared with the doctor who is treating you that you have a family history of aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage? What are his/her thoughts on that? Oh, and let us know the results of you CT Scan.
I will tell you that I am in the same type of situation with migraines starting or becoming worse after an automobile accident...I had what I call "normal people migraines" before and after the accident they progressive got worse and turned into horrible monsters that can be almost daily!
I can say that by your symptoms they can be, as you call it "a normal migraine" I didn't see anything that seemed to be out of the realm of migraine symptoms. I would still voice your concerns with your doctor and make sure to share family history whether they ask you for it or not!!!
please keep me informed and let me know how you are doing!

hey guys, sounds like my symptoms! lol, yea they are not fun. see my sympoms started after an injury 5 years ago, i was 18 now im 23, and man it can be painfull, see when i had my inury i had broken my clavical (collar bone) and jolted my neck ( hard impact no fractures in the neck or spine or nothing like that), anways nowadays i suffer with bad bad bad bad pain in the neck and skull, these pains are due to very tense muscles in my upper back and upper neck, what helps my migrains is a chiropractic adjustment, takes the pressure of my skull lossens the muscles in my head and neck and makes me feel great for about 24 hours then as the week goes on stuff starts pullin and achin all over again. But hey sloopy hang in their man i know its tough dude, that feeling that you describe , to me is worse than a broken limb, but yea im anxious to hear what your doc says, bye the way, what happened 4 months ago? anything out of the ordinary?


p.s. who said life is easy.......

Im due for a ct on the 22nd . sloopy let me know what the gp sed and what your results are please id like to know how you are.


Wish that i could be 100% fit just for 1 day.

Just a short word to everyone!

Please be aware that you are at higher risk for stroke if you have a migraine that lasts more than 72 hours without 4 hours pain free time...Don't let it go that far...take whatever measures you can-go to the doctor, urgent treatment facility or emergency room!

Hello everyone!
 
i'm one of the headache sufferers just like you'll.
 
for the past 5 months i've been suffering daily headaches along with pain neck, pressure all over my head, weak, dizzy and fatigue and most of all the pain that wouldnt go away no matter how much med i'd take. i had a ct scan done on December and thank god everything came out to be allright. My neurologyst diagnosed me with tension headaches caused by many things such as work pressure and if you suffer from anxiety that makes it worst. He recommended me to slow down on my work and home life. I used to be a person that wanted to do everything fast and right, and used to worry about everything. Now i'm living one day at a time and try not to worry about things anymore. I try to do my best at work, but without feeling pressure, at home i'm trying to be more organized and for the rest i just think that if something has to be done i just will do it when is time to do it. I also try to relax when i take a bath I take my time and light some candles and listen to some soft music, and also try to avoid some foods that can trigger headaches such as chocolates, caffeine, smoked meats or fish, and foods that have too much spices and preservatives I also try to excersise a bit everyday. All this and god's help have helped me a lot, i get headaches now and then but there are not that strong as they used to be and the best part is that i don't have to take that many pills anymore (I used to take 3 butalbital pills daily now i only take 1 pill whenever i get a headache.) so my friends i wish you'll good luck and i hope my experience be of some sort of comfort for any of you that might feel that there is no relief. take care of yourselves and don't forget that i'll be praying for u all. bye...
