I feel tightness at times in occipital area. When I rise frm bed my head feels heating also pain in eyes, doctor prescribed antidepressant. Will it work?
No "crystal ball": Can't say whether it "will" work. Depends on the mechanism of your symptoms. Pain in both eyes or one? (Makes a difference.) Determine distribution of "heating". If localized to one part of your head this could be a dysesthesia in which case the involved nerve could help explain the other symptoms (and antidepressants may not work). See doctor with details. ...Read more
Every time I stand up my vision blurs and gets dark, I feel weak everywhere and my head starts heating up, I get very dizzy as well, why is this?
Orthostasis: Feeling faint when getting up or standing from a seated position is usually related to orthostatic hypotension. The postural reflexes (baroreceptors) that cause the heart to pump blood to the brain are slowed and there is insufficient blood pressure. It is caused by blood pooling in the lower extremities. Dehydration, bedrest, low B12 levels, anemia, and medications may be playing a role. ...Read more

Neck pain: Tension migraines are headaches that come from tense muscles of the neck that insert on the back of the head.

Cervical neck pain: Anti-inflammatories, heat/ice, and physical therapy are good first line treatments for myo-fascial/facet/discogenic mediated neck pain. I would touch base with her pcp and get some x rays. I assume she isn't running fevers or had any recent trauma or symptoms of paralysis? ...Read more
My son was hit hard in a flag football game tonight. Ever since he has complained that his neck and head hurt. He also feels like he might throw up. We have tried tylenol, a heating pad and a neck rub, but nothing helps. What should we do?
Will keflex and a decongestant take care of ear pain/pressure? Will a heating pad also help to ear. Started with chest cold a week ago. Moved to my head. Have also had a fever for 1 week. Sudden onset of pressure/pain in left ear yesterday. Some yellowish
Unless: Unless the ear pain and pressure are secondary to a bacterial infection, antibiotic therapy is unlikely to be helpful. We often prescribe antibiotics for persistent complaints beyond a week that may have been initiated by a viral prodrome to prevent secondary superinfection. Keflex, in general, would not be considered the drug of choice for community acquired otitis media. An oral decongestant can assist in relief of nasal, sinus, and mucosal congestive changes leading to eustachian tube dysfunction resulting in ear pain and pressure. Topical afrin is more effective as a decongestant as it works more directly at the target site as long as you respect the 3-5 day maximal useage recommendations to avoid rebound congestion (rhinitis medicamentosa). A heating pad for inflammatory conditions may actually worsen the pain by increasing the firing rate of the nerves carrying the pain impulses. If you continue with ear drainage of the type you are referring I would have the ear examined to rule out sponataneous perforation of the eardrum. ...Read more
Difficult to say: Your symptoms are difficult to ascertain. I recommend you have an eye exam. Redness is a common denominator for many eye problems. Heat emanating from the eyes is not specifically a problem, but a reaction to what you are experiencing. An example would be the flu, which can make you febrile and also give you conjunctivitis (red eyes). ...Read more

Amazed: I continue to be amazed at the unending array of useless therapies for the common cold. If you like the way this feels, go ahead. Not too close, you can get burned.

Surface problems: Burning in the eyes usually is due to dry eyes or a lid condition known as blepharitis.

Artificial tears are usually safe to use. Also, rinsing the eyes and applying a cold compress may help. If any symptoms persist, it will be necessary to see an eye MD to determine the actual cause. ...Read more

When using an infrared heat lamp on my face/forehead 4 times a day for 10 minutes each to treat my cold, Can it damage my eyes when they are closed?
Don't do that: There's no benefit in getting over your cold from sitting in front of a heat lamp. Infrared radiation doesn't speed your recovery from viral illness. Don't do that. And while there's mostly heat from the lamp, there may also be damaging rays that can hurt your eyes. Drink fluids, gets rest, and eat well. Vitamin C and Zinc are good antivirals. Citrus fruits have a lot of both. ...Read more
