My bp is 100/68. I am 29 yr female. Recently lost 30 pounds. Have had a tension headache all day. No dizziness. Is this normal? I use to run 130/88.

Probably BP is fine: Was that 30 extra lbs or are you losing w/o needing to? Very different - right? See your Dr about the tension headache if it's frequent. It's good you're not dizzy and that your high BP seems resolved.

Might not be tension: Diffuse headache in a young lady coud be atypical migraine or even benign intracraniel hypertension. If the headaches are worse on reclining and associated with blurring of vision i'd consider the latter diagnosis. Have your neurologist take a good look in the back of your eyes at the veins. If they are not pulsating spontaneously your intracraniel pressure may be elevated. Meds help a lot.

Consider simple anew: Before going into significant diagnostics it may be wroth considering something as simple as changing your pillow. Stress on the neck can cause tension headaches because of where nerves are located.

I experience headaches almost everyday to every other day, it goes from migraines to tension headaches constantly. I get nauseas and dizzy all the time?

Needs evaluation: Headaches that occur constantly and associated with symptoms of dizziness should not be taken lightly. If this is happening more towards the evening it could be Tension headaches arising from the daily stressors of life. If this is happening intensely over a few months and then disappears this could Cluster headaches. However there are other sinister causes which can be ruled out by a CT scan

Dizzy, head feels heavy&i feel like I'm falling to the left. Headache w tight neck (tension headache?) is dizziness related to headache? What can I do?

Dizzy, head feels heavy&i feel like I'm falling to the left. Headache w tight neck (tension headache?) is dizziness related to headache? What can I do?

Complex headache: If you are truly having a persistent tendency to fall to the left with your headache, this is a specific abnormal neurological symptom and you need a full evaluation. This is not a feature of common headaches like muscle tension, and would be very rare even for migraine headache. Don't try any specific treatment until the cause of the headache is determined.

Dizziness, tension headache and pressure in my ears. Been going on for about a week, what could this be and how to get rid of it?

Dizziness, tension headache and pressure in my ears. Been going on for about a week, what could this be and how to get rid of it?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Alternatively, you may take over the counter pain relief like acetaminophen and if the symptoms do not disappear in a week, see a doctor. Do not drink alcohol. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine

Headaches: If you have severe headaches frequently, you should see your primary care physician and/or a neurologist for evaluation. That doesn't preclude feeling concerned, but it could go a long way towards resolving your worries and providing whatever help you might need. Best wishes.

Severe tension headache pain behind eyes in through mouth and even in my throat neck sharp shooting pain nauseated dizzy tired is this normal?

Severe tension headache pain behind eyes in through mouth and even in my throat neck sharp shooting pain nauseated dizzy tired is this normal?

Headache: Definitely not 'normal.' Big question is if you have nasal symptoms like nasal obstruction, discharge, pus/snot, or drainage down throat. If so then get evaluated for sinusitis, including possibility of 'sphenoid sinusitis.' Most likely thing, however, is migraine headache.

I have painful tension headaches starting at the back of my head near my neck. What could possibly be the cause of that?

You said it: The most common cause of tension headache is--tension. If you have no neurologic symptoms and your neck is sore / stiff this is the most likely diagnosis. How is your emotional state? How well do you deal with stress? But if neurologic symptoms besides pain are present, see a neurologist.
