Other possibilities: By and large tension headaches are defined as headaches which extend about the WHOLE headaches while other types of headaches such as migraines typically show up only on 1 side. Other possibilities such as cervical column osteoarthritis can radiate upward into the head at times. If you'd like to chat 1-1 about this please set up an appointment with me at: www. Healthtap.

Dizzy, head feels heavy&i feel like I'm falling to the left. Headache w tight neck (tension headache?) is dizziness related to headache? What can I do?

Complex headache: If you are truly having a persistent tendency to fall to the left with your headache, this is a specific abnormal neurological symptom and you need a full evaluation. This is not a feature of common headaches like muscle tension, and would be very rare even for migraine headache. Don't try any specific treatment until the cause of the headache is determined. ...Read more

Hi, I am ramya. I am 24 years old. I have severe headache and left side of head is stabbing. My neck, shoulders pain as well.

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons, and you can get the associated shoulder/neck pain. Make sure you check it out with your doctor and get an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

The last few days I've been very dizzy and weak, I also have a very bad back of the head, headache that radiates to my left side of my neck!

All related issues: I would recommend first taking some naproxen (Aleve) twice daily for a few days as these related symptoms could go away as fast as they came on. If not resolved by the end of week, find an inexpensive chiropractor for a neck adjustment, but don't go overboard with treatment visits. THE JOINT CHIROPRACTOR charges only $20/$30 for a treatment. For further improvement, go to your primary doctor. ...Read more

I have a pounding headache that affects the left side of my face (head, eye and neck) and it can be extremely painly most times. What is the possible?

Few possibilities: Migraine headaches are commonly described as pounding, and commonly occur on only one side. Headache with pain in the face, eye, and neck could be due to a migraine or could also be related to sinusitis (a sinus infection). Headache can be a sign of a serious problem.

Will a head and neck CT with contrast rule out a tumor? Reason I had it is constant head and neck pain on left side X6months. Normal results.

It will rule: Out a neck mass with a relatively high degree of confidence, but no test is 100%. It is likely enough to start thinking of other etiologies for your pain rather than a neck tumor, unless there is a palpable mass, in which case additional imaging may be warranted. ...Read more

Left side headache top of head, facial/check pressure/pain, ear discomfort, tender left side neck and under ear? Could I have brain tumor?

Likely not tumor: Given your younger age and type of symptoms currently displayed, a brain tumor is less likely. It depends on the frequency and severity of symptoms, but you might consider requesting your doctor to order an MRI brain with and without contrast (it provides better detail of the brain than does the ct). Sinusitis might be a more plausible diagnosis in your case. ...Read more

Is a head CT with contrast sufficient to rule out a brain tumor? Reason I had it was head and neck pain left side for 6 months. Pain still present.

Usually: Certain type of tumors can't be well visualized on CT and requires MRI, such as meningiomas, but neck pain is rarely cause of tumor in the brain. Tumors can occur in the spinal cord, including the neck spinal cord, but neck pain is usually due to problems with the neck itself, such as disc or arthritis. ...Read more
