Tonight when I've stood up, I get a bad headache in one spot on my head. It's not there when I'm sitting, just when I stand up. I thought maybe a migraine but I'm not sure.

I checked my blood pressure and it's 116/77 and my pulse is 99.

Just wanted to see if you guys thought this was a Lyme symptom or not?

I get that pain also, worse when I bent over, like to pick something up off the floor. My pain is in the back of my neck. I know headaches seem to be a major problem with Lyme, just not sure why.

Hi all, I have not posted in a long while, but have been reading the posts. Because headaches have been an issue with me since I got lyme babeiosis and bart I was moved to post. I also get the pain when I get up and it is in the back of my head toward the neck. I used to get masive headaches before being treated for lyme and babs, now they are much better and different but non the less still an issue. Blessings

Headaches and Head and Neck Pain. My #1 symptom. Unfortunately, I've found that "headache" is not a good way to describe the symptom. That's because anyone listening to you thinks of the "headache" they get. A normal headache. Normal headache does not equal lyme induced head and neck pain. All of this was one of the keys of my diagnosis. As a group, all of us with lyme need to figure out how to describe these pains. A normal doctor or neurologist goes down the wrong road when they hear "headache".
