Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:
the pain being on one side and
the pain worsening when you bend down.
Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms.
That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
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 ...
