Viral illness.: This is not good and may be a viral syndrome and the nausea and vomiting could be symptoms of a severe illness or problem that needs treatment. I would see your doctor tomorrow or go to an urgicenter if not able to be see at the office. Could be an atypical viral meningitis. This would be unusual especially in the winter but there are also other things in the differential. see doc ...Read more

Too much sleep: TOO much sleep can cause headaches just as not enough sleep; that's one possibility. But many other things are possible. Is this the 1st time your head ever hurt you? If not then, how does this compare with other times? And there are many other questions. As a headache specialist I invite you to have a 1-1 conversation with me if you'd like by connecting with me at: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read more

Many caused: There are many possible causes of those symptoms, and it is very difficult to give further advice or guidance without a more thorough examination and evaluation. If you had an evaluation with normal results so far, then the more serious potential causes are much less likely. It is best to continue working with your doctor to find the cause. ...Read more

Anxiety: Sounds like you have anxiety but not anything to be concerned relative to your heart. If you have hypertension be sure its treated to normal blood pressure. Keep the salt and fats down in your diet and get at least 30min of walking in a day. If the dizziness doesn't resolve go to see a doctor and be evaluated. ...Read more

I recently felt sick and vomited but I am better. When i turn my head right i get a pain at the right side on my chest?

Possibly related: Vomiting involves very forceful contraction of the muscles, not just of the esophagus, but also those of the chest wall and rib. Chest soreness after a bout of vomiting isn't uncommon. Two muscles are connected to both the neck and upper chest: the scalene and sternocleidomastoid. You might have strained one of these. However, neck strains are common & this symptom may be coincidental. ...Read more

Need more info: What exactly where done for your evaluation within 3 weeks? As stated in earlier posts, cardiac cause is of concern, but if you've had negative blood work, stress test, ekg, xray, then perhaps it maybe something else causing your symptoms. Are your symptoms starting from your head/neck and radiate down to your chest/arm? Or are you having chest/arm pain and occasionally headache? ...Read more
