Sharp pain lower left back side  of head. It hurts when I move my head and it's going on 8 hours. I'm a 38 year old woman with no medical hx.

Isolated pain with: movement like you describe usually is from a strain of muscles or sprain of ligament or tendon. If the pain is localized (that is, doesn't travel down your arm) it's most likely a muscle strain. Gentle range of motion of the head and neck, Tylenol or Motrin, and a heating pad will help ease the symptoms while it heals up. Dr. Anne ...Read more

I have pain on the lower left side of the head near the neck, and pressure in the inner ear. What could be the causes?

Pressure: That area is where your mastoid bone is. Thick area that sticks out and your neck muscles insert onto.

Some : Some of these symptoms are more likely a sign that blood flow to part of your brain may be partly blocked by a narrowing in your left carotid (neck) artery. If this is what is happening it could lead to a stroke. I would see a medical doctor and have the doctor consider scanning your carotid arteries and maybe brain. If these tests are negative then you may have spine (back) problems with discs which may or may not be treatable but your doctor or a neurologist would be the right people for you to see (soon!), before the problem becomes worse or even permanent. ...Read more

Not sciatica: Sciatica could not explain the fascias tingling. A cervical disk problem could cause shoulder symptoms but would also not explain your face tingling. If these symptoms see new go immediately to the ER. If they have been there for a while go see a doctor. This could be a stroke or serious brain problem. ...Read more
