You: You should immediately make an appointment with an ophthalmologist and a neurologist. You don't say how long this has been going on, or whether your vision is affected, but there could be very serious problems. If this just started and you cannot get an appointment immediately, go to the emergency room.

Left side of eye got blurry lasted for a hour it went away then I felt a mild headache right side if temple area with nausea came suddenly.

Migraine: Your symptoms sound consistent with a migraine (classic). Often there is a visual event (scintillating scotoma) followed by a painful event (headache, nausea &/or vomiting in your case) that may last 1/2 hour to even a few days. The eye symptoms don't arise within the eye, but within the brain in areas subserving visual pathways. A family/neuro doc can treat symptoms, EyeMD to rule out eye problem

I have been diagnosed with Graves Disease. I suffer severely from headaches, only on the right side temple. It's not migraine. I am on 80mg beta blocker?

I have been diagnosed with Graves Disease. I suffer severely from headaches, only on the right side temple. It's not migraine. I am on 80mg beta blocker?

The beta blocker: Will only blunt some of the effects of the elevated thyroid level. The basic thyroid problem still needs to be treated either with radioiodine or anti-thyroid drigs. Work w/your physician, Also, have your eyes checked with an opthalmologist.

When I have a headache and shake my head it hurts intensely bad on left side near temple, is this normal?

Kinda sorta: Most people with bad headaches tend to remain still and quiet because movement tends to exacerbate there headaches. In your case, the left side of your head begins hurting much more when you move your head about by shaking. I don't know if that is common among headache people but it is true that there pain can get worse with movement. Www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi Key Code: PDXFNR

Headache: Unfortunately you have not given enough information to make an informed diagnosis. Ask again with information about how the headache feels (squeezing or pounding), is it associated with other symptoms such as light or noise intolerance, abdominal pain, fatigue?

Don't worry: It's from bruising. Apply ice packs for the first 2 days, then warm compress. Take tylenol (acetaminophen) for headache. Headache may last for few days if you have these serious symptoms - passing out, persistent vomiting, visual blurring, weakness on one side of your body, then go see your dr. Imagine those boxers getting strong punches in the head and most of them are fine after the fight. Don't worry be happy.

Multiple: Possibilities: most likely a muscle contraction headache; however. migraine and temporal arteritis should be ruled out as should any underlying neurological diseases. Why have you waited 5 days with a headache? Get examined and treated TODAY. Close your computer and call your physician, clinic, ER or urgent care center: NOW!

No other problem?: Seems you were fortunat. Do pay attention, but if nothing unusual shows, you are probably fine. If you are over 60, there is some risk for internal bleeding to build up over a few days, but just be alert to anything odd. Be more careful about collisions with furniture. ;-)

I have "ice pick" headaches, every so often. They always occur in the same place, left side just past the temple. What does this mean?

I have "ice pick" headaches, every so often. They always occur in the same place, left side just past the temple. What does this mean?

It means that...: ...you have "ice pick" headaches, every so often, & they always occur in the same place, left side just past the temple. Your headaches are your headaches, and this is just what yours are like. As long as they chronically don't change, their quality & location don't signify anything dangerous, if that's what you're worried about.

Neuralgia: Neuralgia is a condition causing sharp, shooting pains coming from nerves in the scalp area and not from brain pathology. They are more of a nuisance disorder than anything serious. If symptoms worsen have your md check you and order any pertinent tests however.

Few issues: First of all Need a better history so start with this. Did you have any head trauma or injury. Is there any hx of ha in the family. Have you ever been evaluated for headaches? I don't like the thought of them waking you up. Do they or do you wake and then get the headache? You need to be examined and have lab work and possibly scanned for the etiology of the symptoms

I have pain in left pelvis pain in spleen left side and headache left temple?

See your doctor: While these two symptoms are likely unrelated, if the pain in either spot is constant, increasing or unrelieved with simple over-the-counter pain medications, then you should see your physician. If you are female, a gynecologist can address the pelvic pain (spleen in in the upper left part of the abdomen), and can refer you to someone for your headaches.

Complex and common: Chronic headaches are very common and very complex to define in many cases. We recommend patients see a neurology specialist in headaches as further testing and imaging (ct, mri) is often needed to exclude serious causes.

Keep a headache log: There are many types of headaches and many reasons for each type. It would be helpful for you to keep a headache calendar by noting down the frequency, duration, location, characteristics, and intensity of your headaches, along with associated symptoms. Take the headache calendar with you to your primary care physician for dicussion. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/headache. Html

Got headache on left side of the head near temples. Pain is like a heartbeat comes and goes every second. Really hurts. Can I miss school. What to do?

Could be dental: I would seek out medical attention first and rule out medical perpetuating factors. After your physician finds no medical issues I would ask your dentist about muscle tension headaches and go thru a consult and diagnosis for tmd. I spend 6-8 weeks with my clients and if your pain goes away which of course only you know I would continue with therapy. Therapy is a plastic appliance that stretches.
