Weird headache

Good afternoon y’all. I am new to this group. And just a little background I am a fairly anxious person. I’ve always had neck pain, my headaches almost always come from my neck. But i do not get headaches often. Until this past week, I have had this dull-aching headache since Monday.. I have taken midol (to assist my time of the month) but it doesn’t completely rid the aching. Today I’ve got the same headache, neck feels uncomfortable and I have pressure in the top of my nose almost between my eyes, and a slight pain behind my right eye. Then pressure in my temples. Is this just a normal tension/ anxiety headache? Should I be worried? Thank you in advance.

Hi, what doe's your Dr. say? I would say your neck pain need investigating, perhaps am MRI to see what's going on there first, as that can cause headaches if the nerves are involved. Perhaps also learn some relaxation techniques , may well help xx

Thank you, I have not actually told a doc about my neck. Weirdly enough.. but i am seeing a chiropractor next week, so hopefully they can straighten me out!

If you are taking pain killers they bizarrely can cause analgesic headaches? It does sound like a sinus issue try steam inhalation with a vapour rub mixed in.

Hope you get it sorted.

Be well

Really? That is crazy! But i don’t usually take medicine I have only taken a couple. Buttt maybe my body’s not used to them. I will try no meds and see if that makes a difference. Thank you

I get this sometimes, it's to do with the SCM muscle in my neck. I do stretches for it and it fixes it. You can find stretches on YouTube.

Still, do suggest it to your doctor.

Don't be afraid to chat with me about it.

Good luck!

I get it quite often, so if you have the same thing you should be able to sort it. But always make sure the doc has checked it.

You might want to find the cause of it too. Bad posture or bad exercise technique might be a reason.

Keep in touch and let me know how you get on please.
