Why am i getting headaches when i stand up? Left front of my head symptoms one day old.

Other symptoms?: Hi one day of headaches when standing could be part of a cold, sinus infection, or allergies have you hit your head or strained your neck? Is your vision okay/normal?

Why do I get a huge headache when I stand up? I have tried getting up much slower in stages but nothing works. Can last 10mins-1hr sometimes more.

Headache w standing: A headache that occurs with standing but improves with lying down may be related to intracranial hypotension, which is caused by a CSF leak. This does not confirm the diagnosis, but this condition is often treated quite differently from other headaches. Has there been any trauma? Does the headache improve with lying down? You will want to see a doctor for this if so. ...Read more

I don't like it.: I wasn't that worried until you started describing the forgetfulness and trouble producing words in speech. This, along with the spinning feeling and headache, could be describing a brain event, such as a hypertensive-type stroke or hemorrhage. You need to be seen in an Emergency Department immediately. Your symptoms have me very concerned. Please go to ED right now!! ...Read more

Sometimes when I wake up I have headaches and when I stand up my vision will go blurry or I see complete darkness. ?

See answer: Although several types of headaches are more common in the morning, "awakening headaches" suggest a sleep disorder may be the cause. Sleep apnea can cause this type of headache. Insomnia can also cause this. Dark vision on standing is due to transient low blood pressure(orthostatic hypotension). If this happens frequently later in the day see your physician to see if low BP is the cause. ...Read more

Can sinus headaches affect the side & back of your head? The headache worsens when I stand up or bend over. Have chronic sinus infection.

Can sinus headaches affect the side & back of your head? The headache worsens when I stand up or bend over. Have chronic sinus infection.

No: In my 45 year experience of taking care of patients with documented sinus infection or sinus inflammation, the pain does not travel to the side and back of the head. These symptoms are more likely to be muscle tension headaches, migraine, or vascular in origin. Sinus pain is almost always in the face, eyes and teeth. Finally, sinusitis is present with yellow nasal drainage and nasal congestion. ...Read more

My belly cramping in my sides hurts in i got an headache and when i stand up i feel dizzy in my period did not come on what this mean?

My belly cramping in my sides hurts in i got an headache and when i stand up i feel dizzy in my period did not come on what this mean?

Talk to ob/gyn: Not my area of greatest expertise; but, no period combined with belly cramping might mean pregnancy or even ectopic pregnancy. Other symptoms could be due to non-specific physiological changes and may not carry any implication of neurological illness. The most critical finding to follow is the absence of a menstrual period because this implies solid biological clues. ...Read more

See your doctor: These symptoms are not specific enough to provide you an answer but given your age, it is likely not serious - this could be a viral syndrome that would be self-limited. Nevertheless, if associated with fever, weight loss, chronicity more than 7 days, or worsening symptoms, you should see your physician. Meanwhile, make sure you are well-hydrated, rest and if necessary, take tylenol (acetaminophen) per directions. ...Read more

Long, long list: So many possibilities - most are common and not bad. Some may be - but at first without an exam and then maybe tests no one can say. Take it easy and drink water, eat small healthy meals, sleep well and see how it is in a day or so. Then have an exam if needed. ...Read more
