I noticed my mom's upper jaw just behind the left ear is inflamed. She has head ache & couldn't raise left arm. No fever. Can swallow normally.?

Ear inflammation: The most common causes of redness and inflammation behind the ear are: skin infection, cysts (infected or inflamed), or infected lymph notes. There is no obvious way to relate this directly to your mother's complaint of inability to raise her left arm. If she truly is unable to lift her arm, then she should see a doctor to make sure she is not having a stroke. ...Read more

I've had for some years  in the back of my head right side a painful hard lump that once in a while becomes swollen & causes head-ache. What can it be?

This may be: The muscle overlying the greater occipital nerve just below the skull base. If it is tender to push on you might try using a heating pad. If it continues see either a neurologist or an old laryngologist. I used a steroid injection which often relieves the symptoms. ...Read more

Sometimes, periods may trigger migraines; sometimes illness or aromas. ...Read more

I took sumatriptan for a headache and now 8 hours i still feel weird from it. It makes me feel so bad.I makes me sore and hard to chew. And head foggy?

Normal: Sumatriptan is one of the older triptan medications for migraines, and i've heard a lot of people complain of the same type of side effects as you have. They are more expensive, since most don't have generics, but you might try one of the newer triptans, as many of them seem to be better tolerated than sumatriptan in my experience with patients. ...Read more

Head injury: If you can chew that is a good sign. Are your teeth OK? Unlikely a jaw fracture if that is OK, however, if symptoms are not improving in a couple days get checked. As far as head injury, if you did not pass out and as long as you are not on some blood thinner the headache can be treated with Tylenol (acetaminophen) and rest. If worsening headache, vomiting or you feel weak on one side get checked. ...Read more
