Had 2 seizures in my sleep at age16 just had shallow breathing and eyes in back of head only my parents seen could this have been deep sleep 30 now?

Yes, it could have: There is really no way to know if those old symptoms your parents saw were indeed seizures. Even as experts, it is sometimes difficult for doctors to determine if some types of neurologic activity are seizures - that's what eeg's are for. If question as to whether you still have anything, a sleep study or sleep deprived eeg may provide you with answers. ...Read more

If a teen is on phenabarital for sleep could it be hard to wake him after only 2 hours of taking eyes were in back of head shallow breathing?

Yes, but...: At that point the drug will be at peak levels, but I would make sure they didn't take too much. They should still be arousable with stimulation or you may want to seek the help of a health professional.

Phenobarbital can depress breathing which can be serious so if they won't react to you, pick up the phone and seek help. ...Read more

22m old fell from chair&hit back of head yesterday. Woke up threw up 2xthis morning&now has101.2fever. Acting normal, vomit normal. Related2fall or flu?

See doctor: The vomiting could be from something structurally wrong in the brain--a blood clot, etc. However, fever would be unusual with head trauma in an acute setting. Also, acting normal would probably not go along with head trauma. However, you probably ought to play it safe and get baby checked out. ...Read more

Aura assoc. Symptoms: The symptoms you describe are most likely aura associated. Migraine symptoms are so unique to each individual they are like snowflakes. The burning in back of head could be related to increased pressure on the greater occipital nerve. I have found surgical decompression to be very effective in patients with chronic migraines. Nerves when inflamed can feel like they are "burning.". ...Read more

Nerve: Nerve supply of your sinuses and brain covering (meninges) is the same trigeminal nerve. Therefore stimulation of this nerve can cause sinu congestin and headaches at the same time. If you have more than 4 headaches per month then you need headache prophylactic medication such as topamax, (topiramate) depakote, propranolol, verapamil, or amitriptyline. You may also need medicatin for break through headaches such as Naproxen sodium, fioricet, or ultram. Finally abortive medication such as Imitrex may also be needed. Always read for adverse effect of each medication.

For you rsinus issues, unless they are infected, you may use Flonase nasal spray or something similar. ...Read more

CERVICAL: MUSCLE TENSION Headaches are very common and, in fact" are one of the commonest causes of headaches in adults!

A variety of problem: The symptoms are non specific but could be sinus inflammation, migraine, tension headaches. Numbness is not a symptom of sinus infection. Pain in the back of the neck is not a symptom of sinus disease. All these symptoms together could be related to muscle hyperactivity (pain in the back of head and neck.)
