Migraine type headache, eye socket pain, temple pain, neck pain, and blurry vision all on the left side. Is this an emergency?

Can a migraine cause tooth pain? Severe headache, neck pain, sensitivity to light, tooth ache, feeling lightheaded

Yes, but: It is just as likely, or more, that the tooth has caused the other distress. See your dentist if this has happened before or if it continues past a normal 'migraine' for you. Migraines are a very specific thing and don't usually impact teeth or jaw. Rather the temple(s) are most common. Have a dental exam. Best! ...Read more

Headaches daily (Some migraines) for 3 weeks. Back pain. Neck pain. Threw up twice last night. Blurry, spotty vision. Doc not worried. Your input?

Doc should worry: You are correct to be alarmed by these headaches. Failure to be aggressive with migraines will lead to chronic headache disorders. If you have not seen a neurologist who specializes in headaches, then do so asap. Migraines are not only painful but cause brain injury. You need a full work up including your dental bite and sinus exam. Triggers need ID and both prevention and ablation therapy. ...Read more

I have 3 herniated disc in my neck an a pineal cyst on my pineal gland. I'm suffering from neck pain an headaches or migraines how do I alleviate this?

No Single Answer: Headache may be caused by either cervical dysfunction, organic brain dysfunction among other things, and each is approached and treated differently. I would speak to your neurologist, and if the pineal cyst is stable and not thought to be a likely cause of symptoms, then an orthopod vs PT would be your next best step to address your cervical disc issue as a means of improving your headaches. ...Read more

I get migraine headaches 5x/week and take Imitrex (sumatriptan) for it.  Are there short / long term risks?

OVER USING IMITREX (sumatriptan): Serious side effects include heart arrhythmia (irregular heart beat)/palpitation, and rare heart attack especially older folks with risks. Being male at 61, it is a bit risky. Using 5x/wk is excessive. There are daily meds to help prevent migraine attacks and so i suggest consulting doc for eval and treatment.

Yes, if you qualify: Botox has been fda approved for chronic migraine, and I have seen it work very well for a number of patients. That being said, the criteria for getting the treatment are quite stringent- i would follow up with a neurologist who offers the treatment to see if you meet those criteria and, if not, what other options are available to you. ...Read more
