I have 24/7 headache in forehead. Dr said tension. MRI was clean. I sleep with fan in my face all night. Could it be the cause or making worse?
Persistent headache: Does it occur in cold weather too? Does it go away with tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen? Do you have stuffy nose or nasal allergies? Is your B/P ok, did have an eye exam lately? I don't think the fan has anything to do with it. Try to sleep without the fan one night & see what happens may be it dry your nasal mucosa, use aline nose drops before bed time. If they persisted consult a neurologist. Good luck ...Read more

Have indentions on head, causing constant headache. Want to find out cause. Have had X-ray, MRI, radiation imaging & 17 drs. With no diagnosis.

What causes all over headaches all day? I have rhinitis since April. Neuro doesn't suspect tumor and won't so MRI. Suspects migraine or allergies
Varies: What you're experiencing is frustrating. In a 29 year old man with a recent history of rhinitis, chronic rhinitis or sinusitis is definitely a consideration. I'd want to know if there were any additional symptoms associated with what you're experiencing. Do you have a family history of headaches as well - this might put migraine higher on my list. A PCP visit is recommended. Take care! ...Read more
Recent MRI due to headaches discovered brain infarction. Could that be the cause of my headaches and is it possible to figure out when I had a stroke?
Not all strokes same: An MRI can tell a tremendous amount about a stroke, including approximately when it happened, the size, and the location. Many people have microvascular disease that leads to small strokes as they age, and they rarely have much significance. An acute stroke, on the other hand, is an emergency. Have a closer look at the MRI report and talk to your doctor about the details of the implications. ...Read more

That is what they're there for! ...Read more
Car acident 18m ago I have headaches and pain in my neck I had 20 sessions of physio MRI showed minor posterior protusion c6-c7 is this cause of pain?
Challenging: Not so sure that the disc protrusion is responsible for your symptoms, unless it truly is compressing nerve root. Would certainly have an evaluation for a problem within the proximal brachial plexus, which could have been injured by shoulder strap. The term "thoracic outlet syndrome" refers to a possible problem which may be somewhat difficult to diagnose. Find an experienced physiatrist. ...Read more

Neurologist requested MRI due to severe headaches, migraines, numbness, etc. Nurse called, result is angioma "not serious". Could that be the cause?
Venous angiomas: Or developmental venous anomalies (DVAs), if that's what the nurse is referring to, are generally incidental findings and, in the vast majority of cases, of no clinical significance and requiring no treatment. So it is unlikely to be the cause of your symptoms, but you should discuss the results with your doctor if you have questions. ...Read more
Please help me! I'm getting lots of headaches had MRI 4-18-13 & CT a mth ago both normal of brain what is this cause for so many headaches? Top head
See Neuro: There are no easy answers for you. The good thing is your scans were normal. The cause of headaches are difficult to define, and at times may be purely a genetic trait you inherited. There are many trigger foods (such as caffeine) for example, that can cause headaches. Eye problems, menstrual/hormonal issues, etc. Can all play a role. Keep up with a neuro doc and be diligent. Best wishes. ...Read more
