Headaches: Since you've missed your period, pregnancy must be considered and if pregnant, ok for any medications should be obtained from your obstetrician. The headaches occurring for 3 weeks may be related to sinus congestion but other causes must be ruled out. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate you. Get a pregnancy test before any xrays or medications are recommended. ...Read more

I have a very sharp pain deep up in my nose on the left side and have had continuos headaches for months now. Could this be related?

I have a very sharp pain deep up in my nose on the left side and have had continuos headaches for months now. Could this be related?

Yes, it could: You really need to see an otolaryngologist, or at least a physician with a scope that can look up to see if there is something blocking the sinus passages and causing the headaches. Meanwhile you can TRY a mild decongestant nasal spray and warm compresses to try to encourage any drainage that could relieve the pressure if the headaches are sinus headaches. Good luck! ...Read more

When I blow my nose, my nipples have a sharp pain. Why?

When I blow my nose, my nipples have a sharp pain. Why?

That's different: That is a symptom that I have not heard before. In over 25 years of being an ENT doctor no one has ever complained to me that their nipples bother them when they sneeze. The only thing that I can imagine is some type of a muscle spasm that occurs in your chest with a particularly violent sneeze leading to irritation. ...Read more

What would cause a sharp pain in my head than follow by a nose bleeds has only happened 2 times in the last 6 months

What would cause a sharp pain in my head than follow by a nose bleeds has only happened 2 times in the last 6 months

Epistaxis: Epistaxis or bloody noses can be caused by a variety of things and is worth having it looked into by your primary care doctor or an ear, nose and throat doctor (otolaryngologist). Seeing that your nosebleeds follow a sharp headache, you should also be evaluated for high blood pressure since this can lead to nosebleeds that are difficult to stop.

In the meantime, here are a few nose bleed tips. If your nose starts to bleed, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bridge, not the bridge to stop the bleeding. Now keep pinching for 5 minutes. Set a timer or look at a watch because it will feel like forever. And no peeking! That will stop 95% of all nosebleeds. ...Read more
