Hi, my name is Chrissy, I'm 18 years old, and I have questions about my constant stomach pain, I don't know if my migraines and stomach pain can be related, I get migraines daily, and stomach pain is constant, the pain has been here for about 3 months now, and I've seen several DR's about it, they just tell me that its just a stomach ache, and I will be fine, but its been going on for too long, and the pain is getting worse almost daily now, and I'm hoping someone could help me...the stomach pains are really sharp, and lots of pressure....And now I'm starting to gain a lot of weight in the stomach area, but my stomach is constantly hard...And I do not have constipation problems... My migraines I've been getting since I was about 7 or 8 years old...But now the migraines are getting worse and I'm getting pain down my neck and back. Though you may not be able to help either, thanks for trying... Chrissy.
Hello, I have recently been suffering from severe headaches that originate behind my left eye, behind my ear, to the base of my neck. It hurts to cough, sneeze, or even bend over to pick something up. I had a CT of the sinuses and it turned up nothing. My doctor put me on 800 mg ibuprofen, but I'd rather get to the root cause and not just the symptoms. Any ideas on what it can be? Sylvia.
The symptoms you describe are often symptoms of Migraine, but not always. That said, nobody can diagnose via the Internet, so you definitely need to find a doctor who understands Migraine and headaches . If you have trouble finding a doctor, there's a link below to our listing of patient recommended specialists.
One thing you can do to help you and your doctor determine what's going on is to keep a Migraine and headache diary. You can download a free diary workbook from our article Your Migraine and Headache Diary .
Good luck, John Claude ...

What you're describing could be ice pick headaches. You can find more information in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics . That said, nobody can confirm that via the Internet, so you really should see your doctor about these pains.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
