The back of my head is tight and it feels heavy and when I get up I get dizzy and it hurts worse. What should I do?

Don't get up...: First see a doctor to rule out a serious or life threatening cause of dizziness. At young age it is likely not but would need a complete history & physical.

Also try self Epley and Semont maneuvers for vertigo. ...Read more
