See your doctor: Rapid, unexplained weight loss is a "red flag" sign that needs a thorough evaluation in a timely fashion. There are many different things that could cause your symptoms, and if they began 4-5 months ago, you should not delay a personal evaluation with a physician any longer.

Yes: What you should do is keep a log of your headache symptoms, what you do before it starts, how long it lasts and what you did to make it go away.

What is the cause of headaches, congestion, earaches, headaches, and nausea?

What is the cause of headaches, congestion, earaches, headaches, and nausea?

Sinus infection: Headaches, congestion, earaches, headaches and nausea are often associated with a sinus infection. The inflammation and irritation may improve with the Nasonex (mometasone) and singular that I see that you are taking. What you are trying to do is to decrease the build up of the fluid in the sinuses that leads to the pain. If there is fever, then you need to be more concerned that the infection is increasing.

Sudden increase in smell w or wo nausea, smoker, essure, no headache. Causes?

Migraine equivalent?: I'm unable to interpret all of your question (essure?). If you mean your sense of smell is heightened and you have nausea at times, you may be having a partial migraine phenomenon without the headache. Some doctors refer to this phenomenon as "migraine equivalent." Much less likely would be an unusual type of seizure originating in the temporal lobe of the brain.

I always get really bad headaches and nausea. O experience this for around 2 hours at a time. I was wondering what the cause of this and how to prevent?

Different types: The 2 main causes of headaches in your age group would be migraine and tension type muscle contraction headaches. Either one can have associated nausea. Migraine often has a preceding warning (flashing lights, etc) and is usually a one sided throbbing headache while tension type headaches are usually steady over the forehead or back of the head. A neurologist is a headache specialist as well.
