May be fibromyalgia: There are lots of issues here and when your physician will look at all of these there are major topics to be evaluated. Are there tender myofascial (soft tissue) sites when you are touched? The eye
twitches weakness and aching suggest there may be a sleep disturbance that needs evaluation. Need to clarify whether these are migraine or muscle contraction headaches:fibromyalgia fits. ...Read more

Head hit into another persons head on eyebrow bone 4 days ago. Dr said exam ok, just sore/headache- only symptoms. When should mild headache subside?

Concussion: Well, a mild concussion (as yours sounds to be) can take a week or more for all of the symptoms to subside. It can last much less, or a little after, but most of my patients have resolution by a week. Just remember to have some brain rest, and no vigorous exercise for a few days, and you should be fine. Good luck! ...Read more

Check with you Dr.: First check with you physician to be sure there are no medical complications. You may also have some dental concerns (grinding your teeth, sleep disturbances, etc.) but rule medical complications out first. If you physician does not find an answer, you may look into finding a doctor that deals with TMJ issues to see if this might be a cause. Treat the cause, not the effects. ...Read more

SympathyForTheDevil: There's so much in there that, after thinking about what you've said, my head is spinning with possibilities. You need to sit down & have a long talk with a good doctor & maybe a counselor. This could go several ways & someone needs to sort out all the details with you because it's in your details that the 'devilish' truth will be found. Start with a good internist: one who is smart and will *listen* ...Read more

While landing during a flight, I felt severe headache, severe ear, neck, and facial bone aches. What is this and how to avoid? Thanks!

Landing and evere headache: I think that you suffered from a whiplash type of injury. Did you have a short moment of confusion? dizziness? during or following the landing? Or the symptoms came later like 12-24 hours later?
