Dull throbbing mostly(left)back of head.Seem to worsen when touch,abit dizzy.Better when lying down.Spend time on phone.Possible causes n how to ease?

Muscle pain: Seems like a muscle issue (strain or sprain). I think some warm compresses and some Motrin or tylenol is in order. The fact that you talk on the phone often can affect your posture and help cause the problem. Be aware of your posture. Get a headset if you need to be hands free on the phone and perhaps you sit up straighter and not develop this pain. Warm compresses and cold ones can be done. ...Read more

What are possible causes for feeling dizzy and lightheaded when standing up from laying down and sometimes from sitting?

What are possible causes for feeling dizzy and lightheaded when standing up from laying down and sometimes from sitting?

Sometimes our bodies are slow to respond and this can lead to a temporary decrease in blood flow to the brain - that can make you dizzy ...Read more
