This is the second day that I have a headache on my left temple area. It is not constant only begins when I come home from school and worse when walki?

Headaches: Headaches can have many causes. Given that the headache is temporary, occurring only when you are coming home from school, and it has only been two days, you probably don't need an emergency evaluation. However, it doesn't mean there isn't a reason and that your distress shouldn't be addressed. Please schedule a consultation so a clinician can evaluate you and offer a diagnosis and treatment plan. ...Read more

I get a headache in my left temple, almost daily. Sometimes only a little. Why do I have this headache and how can I get rid of it?

Headaches: If you have tried all over the counterpain medications, you might consider a magnesium supplement, then see your doctor. You might need a daily medication like topamax or Propranolol to keep the headaches away. You can also find out if your headaches are coming from tension, eye strain, dehydration, lack of sleep/poor sleep, skipping meals, stress, sleep apnea/snoring, or chronic sinus problems. ...Read more

I have been getting a daily headache around my left temple and top of my skull. What do you recommend?

I have been getting a daily headache around my left temple and top of my skull. What do you recommend?

Please take action!: I do not know how old you are or your gender. But if you have headaches almost everyday on your temporal area, then you need to be eveluated for "temporal artritis"--a rare codtion, but it can be serious. And it can be quite treatable. You could have just simple migrain. Again it would be hard to lable with any things w/o being seen by a physician. My prayers and blessings. ...Read more

Bad headache in the left temple. It is probably a migraine or stress tension headache. But if it was a brain tumor. Would there be other symptoms?

Bad headache in the left temple. It is probably a migraine or stress tension headache. But if it was a brain tumor. Would there be other symptoms?

Likely not tumor: Given your younger age and type of symptoms currently displayed, a brain tumor is less likely. It depends on the frequency and severity of symptoms, but you might consider requesting your doctor to order an MRI brain with and without contrast (it provides better detail of the brain than does the ct). I would definitely consider quitting smoking. ...Read more

Ive had nausea, heartburn, headaches in my left temple area, for about a week now. I've also been on my period since 10/1/14 what could it be?

Ive had nausea, heartburn, headaches in my left temple area, for about a week now. I've also been on my period since 10/1/14 what could it be?

Bleeding: So you have a constellation of symptoms that really need to be looked at. Bleeding for that long needs to be investigated, you may be anemic at this point (low blood counts). This alone can cause headaches. Could be pelvic inflammatory disease, a bad infection in the pelvic area, which could cause nausea/heartburn. Again, I would see a doctor, as this needs to be addressed. Good luck! ...Read more
