Dr. Mark C. Loury answered:

Pressure inside head and coughing or sneezing is very painful but not a headache?

Several causes

Open-uri20130406-615-1l1i2f7
Pressure is either from transient blood pressure increases during the cough causing swelling of the sinus linings or temporary distension of the veins inside the skull which are very sensitive (cough headache). May also have sinus inflammation which can cause head discomfort that can worsen with cough. If the pressure persists after the cough has gone, see MD

I have had migraine headaches for years. I take beta blockers.   For the last year the top of my head hurts whenever I bend over, sneeze or cough.  ?

Assessment needed.

Cough
Several issues must be reviewed: 1, sleep problems? even you might not realize that, 2. any trigger points or painful points in neck as they give referral pain in head, 3. is there any medication withdrawal or sudden stop? 4. Is scalp tender on top of head? See your doctor for assessment.

Dr. Jay Kashkin answered:

Headache when standing and hard to hear in one ear itchy throat and sneezing had a CT scan of head came out clear.can it be allergies ?

Nasal congestion

Pharynx
The symptoms you describe can definitely be associated with allergic rhinitis especially if nasal congestion is a significant component. Diminished hearing can be associated with eustacian tube (middle ear) dysfunction as a result of nasal congestion causing increased middle ear pressure. Headaches can of course occur in the same realm. You should see an allergist for sure.

Sinus congestion

Sounds like sinus congestion or a sinus infection. If you have a green colored discharge from your nose see your doctor.

No headaches before. SHARP jolts on R temple mostly, sometimes L, &back of head x 3 days. Hurts to sneeze or bend forward.Occass throb in mid of head?

Visit a neurologist

Head
Sharp temporal headaches may be a sign of temporal arteritis, atypical migraine, or something intracranial. In this case it would be wise to visit the neurologist. It could also be as benign as the start of an upper respiratory infection or the symptoms related to temporo-mandible joint syndrome. You should probably pay a visit to your PCP first.

Dr. Bernard Canlas answered:

i have intense neck and shoulder pain. Can't move my head, breathe, cough, or sneeze without severe pain?

Need to see you doc!

Shoulder_pain
If your pain is this intense then go see a physician. Did your neck and shoulder pain start gradually, suddenly or was there a precipitating cause? There could be something going on your cervical spine. But it is still best to have your self evaluated by a physician.
