Brief dull or sometimes sharp pain on one part of the back of my head.Neck too, sometimes feel like my eyes are straining or heavydue to back problems?

Probably not: By "back problems" i will assume that you mean neck pathology. The symptoms you have described, other than neck pain, are not typical for cervical pathology.

Do not strain w/ BM!: Anytime you strain or hold your breath or lift a heavy object, etc. you creating a Vasalva maneuver. So, it puts pressure in your whole system including your CSF potentiallly. Use a stool softener instead or something that relaxes you, versus straining. Also contact your neurosurgeon/neurologist (?) who knows about your CSF leak. He needs to be involved in helping manage you now. Don't delay! ...Read more

Buckd off horse 9/7 hit back head.  9/8 sore stiff neck front. Swoll. musc right side. Treating @ home. Is it worth get. seen? Or is it muscle strain?

Its definitely muscl: strain BUT have it checked to ensure you haven't broken any bones in the C spine. If its was a simple strain, then its already been 2 months since injury and it should have been greatly improved. Besides soreness and swelling, are you getting any other symptoms? I suggest have it seen, so as to remove any doubt that a bony injury occurred. good luck. ...Read more
