Severe head pressure/headache (chiari), eye pressure, blurry vision &painful. Spinal pain& bad neck pain, pain in the back of head. Intracranial press? Er?
ER visit. Changes in vision, new onset of new symptoms all suggest a need fora fast evaluation. If these are more chronic, then see a neurologist. Severe pain should not be ignored.
Yes ER. When anyone complains of the combination of headache and neck pain i worry about several things but the worst is meningitis. It is possible you have just a bad viral infection but if you have headaches and neck pain it is better to be safe than sorry. I would especially go to the er if you have a high fever.
Have had headache, head pressure, tinnitus neck pain, blurry vision and tachycardia for three weeks. What could this be from? CSF leak?
Intractable migraine. In CSF leak the headache is worse when you sit up and improves when you lie down. Visit ER. Many clinicians consider parenteral administration of DHE 45, (dihydroergotamine) ketamine, lidocaine, other agents to be a very safe and reasonable treatment for intractable migraine. Good luck.
