Neck hurts from the back of my head down and on both sides and it feels tight I lift alot of heavy stuff at work. What can I do?

Neck pain: Would consider PT, massage, liftign techniques, Aleve (naproxen) if not allergic and or flexeril at night. Warm shower in AM, ice when home from work If lifting constantly consider breaks every 30 minutes for 1-2 minutes to shake out neck. May consider a few days of neck collar, sometimes at night it helps the neck from rolling all over f/u with doc /urgent care. . ...Read more

I am 17, a virgin I have been goingThrough a preg. Scare, I had my period. Been reallystressed &I have anxiety. My stom. Feels tight, is this all my head?

Probably: Unless you had an implantation of a fertilized egg, never having had intercourse (virgin) would make it close to impossible for you to be pregnant. Having your period is like the cherry on top of a sundae. Stress and anxiety can do incredible things and make you think or feel just about anything. But even they can't make you pregnant. Talk to a doctor to understand this better. Best! ...Read more

After I took just 1 pill of oxyelitepro (fat burner) my head feels tight wierd and my nostril alternative why I've been like this for 2 months now?

Unlikely: Oxylite pro is a potent stimulant. It contains several potent stimulants, all of which can cause the symptoms you describe. However, it would be unusual to continue to suffer those symptoms for 2 months after one tablet. Assuming you do not take any other stimulants, you should see your physician asap. ...Read more

Not really pain, right side of head feels tight/tired since tues night. Left side of head feel a little pain. Head feels tired. Having cought & runny nose

This could be...: Could be a variety of things, ranging from harmless to a little more serious. I would consider "scalp fatigue" caused by diminished local circulation or nerve pain due to the pressure of certain hair styles such as braids. Would first rule out more serious things like multiple sclerosis or immune process like arteritis (inflammation of arteries). I do not think the cough/cold symptoms are related. ...Read more
