I have dull headaches which are now more sharp. I hear high pitched ringing in ears and also buzzing. I feel a sharp neck pain at base of skull. Could it be a TMJ flare up? What should I do?

Likely TMJ

Headaches and ear pain are many of the presenting chief complaints of patients with TMJ. You can sort out the ringing by protruding your jaw forward when the ringing occurs. It protrusion of you jaw changes or eliminates the ringing sound then there is a jaw connection. Either way you should see a dentist specially trained in TMJ.

Sore neck and headaches base of skull hurts goes away with heat application it's more annoying and constant.sore neck muscles too.what can I do?

Evaluate posture

Muscle
Sore neck and headaches that resolve with heat are usually benign and commonly related to muscle tightness or overuse. The first thing I would do is evaluate the activities I do on a regular basis and neck posture doing those activities. A common problem is a computer screen that is too high or too low requiring prolonged periods of time looking up or down.

I have recently had a tummy bug and still not feeling well ! Have still got head aches neck pain and really sore calf muscles any ideas ??

Viral syndrome

if "tummy bug" was due to a virus which sounds like it was, the same bug is causing a viral syndrome manifesting as described. or a new bug came along. cannot rule out meningitis in setting of a viral syndrome, headache and neck pain and would require further evaluation.
