I've haved pressure in my forehead and temples for three days it comes and Goes and I've had cramps and some discomfort in the left side of my stomach?

I've haved pressure in my forehead and temples for three days it comes and Goes and I've had cramps and some discomfort in the left side of my stomach?

Sounds migraine-y: To me, though you're lucky it is just coming and going and not constant. The stomach discomfort is probably a mild bit of nausea. Try an OTC motion sickness medicine and ginger ale, be sure to keep a small amount of food in your stomach at all times. I have a checklist on migraines on HealthTap that could help you if you can find it. If things get worse, don't hesitate to see a clinician.

Right Index finger and right eye lid twitching. Leg cramps, neck pain, headache on temples. Vertigo.

Sounds systemic: There are too many problems to be isolated to 1 specific part of the body. I am not sure of what medications you are taking or what other medical conditions you have, but given your age I suspect that you have an electrolyte imbalance that is causing this cascade of problems. It could point to something serious. Get to an urgent care center or ER to get your electrolytes checked & other tests. GL!

Probably not related: Some common caused of breast pain are hormonal changes, weight changes, caffeine intake, stress, exercise changes, ill fitting bras, cysts and others. An examination is the next step. It is not likely that breast tenderness is related to headaches. A primary care doctor can help being he evaluation of headache.

Seek help: Reasons for headaches vary from migraines to stress related and many other less common causes. You can treat occasional headaches with Tylenol (acetaminophen) or something like Motrin. If these headaches happen frequently I would see your doctor who will help figure out why this is happening and how to treat and possibly prevent them.

Magnesium: Hi, Headaches caused by the muscles in your neck, face and scalp can be helped with high doses of magnesium. Take an epsom salt bath 2 cups for 30 mins every night and magnesium chelate 1 cap/night and increase until you get soft stool. This will be the amount of magnesium you should take daily. If this doesn't work, consult me to find the answer.

I got cramps in my head and I got pills for like stress from my Dr don't know if they work I can't sleep at night I messing it to stop?

See your Doctor: Talk to your doctor if the pills to help reduce feelings of stress aren't working. Living in constant stress can't be easy and we know it is very unhealthy. Headaches can be common. Get your doctors help. This is hard to fix but well worth the effort. The next step is to followup and review treatment.

Muscle tension: See if heat, massage, or topical magnesium oil helps. Eat 6 healthy meals, breathe and relax for 5 minutes and then move doing both aerobic and resistive exercises to lower stress. See kelly mcgonigal's the will power instinct.

Fainting=see doctor: Anytime someone faint when working out it can be a sign of something seriously wrong. You need to see your physician to have this evaluated. After falling it is not uncommon to get neck and head pain. The dizziness that you have also be related to the fall. All of the symptoms make this something you should see your doctor about soon.

TMJ/Muscle Problems: You may also have a TMJ or muscle dysfunction problem that is getting worse. There are times that a bionator (one type of function orthopedic appliance) may be of great help especially when using for sleeping as well as when you can during the day. This tends to retrain and heal the muscles to help them function normally. Find a dentist that is familiar with TMJ & use of a bionator.

Assess: If the baby is moving as before and there is no persistent pain or bleeding it is likely OK. If there are concerns arrange for an assessment and an ultrasound.
