What causes migraine type headache with neck pain and nausea?

Convergence: Because the nerves in the neck connect with the nerves in the head at the base of the brain, painful information can be sent to the neck when the head hurts. This is known as pain referral. This does not mean there is a probllem in the neck. This is also why the sinuses often hurt with migraine headaches.

What causes an unforseen migraine with nausea, weakness, and disorientation? I've also been experiencing growing sinus pressure & neck pain for weeks.

What causes an unforseen migraine with nausea, weakness, and disorientation? I've also been experiencing growing sinus pressure & neck pain for weeks.

"Unforseen?": Don't really know what "unforseen" means here. Nausea, generalized weakness & mild confusion can be associated with migraine. Don't know about "sinus pressure." All those dopey people who say they've got "sinus"? 99% of them don't. "Sinus" is a relic of the Dristan era. Pressure in your head & neck pain can also happen with migraine, but it's not "sinus" pressure. What does "unforseen" mean? ...Read more

Can a migraine cause tooth pain? Severe headache, neck pain, sensitivity to light, tooth ache, feeling lightheaded

Yes, but: It is just as likely, or more, that the tooth has caused the other distress. See your dentist if this has happened before or if it continues past a normal 'migraine' for you. Migraines are a very specific thing and don't usually impact teeth or jaw. Rather the temple(s) are most common. Have a dental exam. Best! ...Read more

I have neck pain sore causes sinus headaches an temple pressure triggers my migraines worse in mornings what is this my doct treating it as sinus ?

See below: Where is your pain exactly? Do you wake up with the headaches? There are a lot of unanswered questions here that are relevant. Sinus pressure is generally located in the front above your eyes bilaterally or over your cheeks but other possibilities can occur. If not improved after sinus treatment (which, by the way, is one of the most over diagnosed entities in medicine), get rechecked. ...Read more
