I'm starting to get worried. For quite some time now I have had the feeling of fullness at the base of my head. My head also feels "too heavy". There are times when it actually hurts from just sitting or standing to the point that I have to rest my head in my hands for a short time. This is on the left side of my head and I am not able to put my head down towards my left shoulder without pain. When I try to put my head to my right shoulder there is a slight pain at the base of my head on the left side. I find that I am forgetting things as well. I just turned 40 so I brushed that part off as just getting older. Do I have a reason to be concerned or is this just part of getting older?

I think it is always a good idea to get it checked out by a doc.
That just does not sound normal to me.
