I have been experiencing headache usually at the top of the head, sometimes at the back portion of the head for sometime. Although the pain is bearable it is bothering me to the extent that I can not do my work efficiently. The pain would sometime be for a day, sometimes for a couple of days. What could this be? Estella.
There are literally hundreds of conditions, headache disorders and other conditions, that could fit your description.

Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

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
