FROM OUR EXPERTS
for more than a year i had pain in the back of my head and it turned out to be sinus infection but even with treatment the pain came back after 3 month. Now add to that pain, i have an other sharp pain in the right side of my head behind ear and i have balance problems, i pass out for seconds without really falling when im walking or even in bed. And sometimes I can't stand more than one voice or noise and sometimes i imagine that something is going to fall while i try to catch it but nothing is really going to fall. i visited my docter and he recommended an M.R.I brain scan. any suggestions about what could it be? Age: 18. Never had any headaches until one year ago. Malek

Statistically, it's unlikely to be an aneurysm, but you certainly don't want to find yourself on the wrong end of those statistics. Any unexplained head pain should be investigated. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
