What would cause a severe headache located behind the left ear at the base of the skull. Pain meds haven't helped. Now what? Medical history: heart surgery, diabetic, high blood pressure

Headaches : Headaches and their causes can be complicated, difficult diagnoses to make. With your past history of diabetes and high blood pressure, you should make an appointment with your doctor for a complete evaluation as soon as possible. You doctor will take a thorough history and do a neurological evaluation to try and find out what is causing your symptoms. You may want to think about the answers to some of the questions they may ask you such as: - when did it start? - how often do they happen? - are they getting more frequent or more painful? - how long do they last? - what does the headache feel like and can you point to it? - does it occur around the same time at night or does it ever happen during the day? - what other symptoms do you have and when do they occur in regards to the headache? - have you had any big life changes? - how is your lifestyle? Are you getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising? - are you taking any medications? Do you drink caffeine and how much? Answering these questions may help your doctor figure out what is causing your headaches, whether it is a serious problem or not, and how to help you. Good luck! ...Read more

My question is for my husband he has very high blood pressure constant keeps a headache this morning he had a headache, nosebleed, blood pressure is 145/102 what does that mean?

Not controlled!: He needs immediate medical attention! Even though his blood pressure numbers are not terribly concerning, though they are high, the fact that he is having these symptoms suggests urgency. Your doctor may just ask him to take some extra medication today, or she may want him to come in. Call the office now! Good wishes:) ...Read more
