All Day Headache Nausea
Woke up with very bad dizziness... All day dizziness, nausea, headache, really bad neck pain at the back of neck. Dizziness gets worse lying down?
Concerning: In an otherwise healthy 26-year-old, the description is concerning for meningitis (or several other causes of severe/life-threatening headache). If this new headache with dizziness is ongoing without any abatement or worsening throughout the day, then there should be a low threshold for seeking emergency evaluation. ...Read more

I woke up this morning to a metallic smell and it lasted all day, I also had headache, nausea and dizziness along with it. Later food tasted like metal too. What could cause this?
Metallic taste: There are many possible causes for your symptoms but one that is likely is that you had acid reflux. Acid reflux can result in a metallic taste in your mouth and symptoms are usually worse in the morning because you have had no food overnight to buffer the effects of stomach acid. Try Omeprazole 20 mg 15 minutes before your first meal. This should help your symptoms. ...Read more
If severe - see doc: Your temperature is normal. Headaches and nausea can accompany a number of illnesses. It may be something mild and you may feel better with some Tylenol (acetaminophen). The severity of the headache can be a guide for you. If this is unlike any headache you have had in the past then you may need to see someone right away. If it is more or a 'normal' headache then you are probably coming down with something. ...Read more
Haveing severe to mild headaches on and off all day to the point where its making me nauseas what's wrong with me?
I'm doing the advocare 10 day cleanse for 4 days now & the whole time I've felt nauseas & headaches that won't go away. Should I stop the cleanse?
No "cleansing" need: Normal human's have self-clearing (like self-cleaning) intestinal tracts. After a person eats, the food is processed and moved along from the stomach all the way to her anus, without any help or interference from him. If a person is eating a healthy, balanced diet, no colon cleansing is needed. Such cleansing is unnatural. But, it is ok to occasionally use laxative help to get rid of constipation. ...Read more
I've been getting headaches every day now for weeks. They are occasionally accompanied by waves of nausea. What could be the cause and what can I do?
Get checked out: A good start at finding potential headache triggers would be to maintain a diary. Every time you have a headache write down what you were doing, the foods you ate that day, alcohol, smoking, caffeine, stress, how much sleep you had the night before, eye strain, etc. Try to find patterns in your headache so that you can learn what things to avoid. Get checked by your doctor. ...Read more

Yes: Are you getting restful sleep? Are you sleeping 7-8 hours nightly? Are you drinking enough fluids? Are you getting regular exercise? Are there foods that bother your stomach, and do you eat them close to your bedtime? Have you had these headaches before, and what did you do that successfully cleared them up? Hope that helps. ...Read more

Headache AND Nausea:
The incessant nature of chronic daily headaches makes them among the most disabling headaches. Aggressive initial treatment and steady, long-term management may reduce pain and lead to fewer headaches.
By definition, chronic daily headaches occur 15 days or more a month, for at least three months. True (primary) chronic daily headaches aren't caused by another condition.
This type typically occurs in people with a history of episodic migraines. On eight or more days a month for at least three months, migraines tend to have the following features:
Nausea, vomiting or both
Affect one side or both sides of your head
Have a pulsating, throbbing sensation
Cause moderate to severe pain activity
Sensitivity to light and sound
Are aggravated by routine physical ...Read more

Stopped my Concerta XL 54mg for four days. Took first dose today since then. Had headache, nausea and tired all day. I have just vomited. Serious?
Concerta: I assume when you started Concerta you started at a much lower dose & went up over mos-yr to 54mg. While holding for a few days is often helpful (only if recommended by your prescribing provider), restarting can cause many symptoms due to such a high dose given for '1st time' again since technically completely out of the body in 4-5 (3.5 hrs x5) half lives. If recurs or worsens may seek attention. ...Read more

My friend has short term amnesia, headache, nausea, aggression, and has been in bed all day. Should I be concerned?
Being concerned: Hi V, Yes, I would be concerned. First, I would try to talk your friend into a visit with his PCP (or urgent care/ER if necessary). Not "finger shaking" at him but because you are concerned and you care about him. This could either be a medical/neurological condition or perhaps significant depression. Or both. Does he have a history of being depressed? Memory issues? Aggression? Yes, be concerned ...Read more

3 days out of the hospital since tia. Every day I have horrible headaches, nausea and fever. I mostly sleep and I can hardly eat. What's wrong?
Because: Tia is often given as the DX but there is no imaging to prove it. I believe that this is really an energy crisis in the brain because of altered brain chemistry, hence the multiple symptoms. A common cause is poor diet that compromises energy metabolism. You really need vitamin therapy, preferably given i/v/. ...Read more

Possibly: The avm and the aneurysms can bleed. This can lead to headaches. What you describe is not the classic " worst headache of ones life" that is seen with aneurysm rupture. However, if there are small leaks or bleeds from the aneurysms or avm, this could lead to some of your symptoms. It should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
