Hello, I have been having sharp throbbing pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. This pain has been going on for a few weeks. I also have bad pain all around the top of my head. The pain occurs at night and in the morning when I wake up and usually last all day long. It may go away for a couple hours throughout the day but it does come back.

I lose too many days out of my schedule now and at this time can not even work due to the frequency of these headaches. Also my "aura" seems to have returned recently (floaters in my eyes). I had these when my headaches first started and have gone many years with only a very occasional eye floater. As of late, I have averag...

We understand being scared to go to the doctor, but really, not going to the doctor should be more frightening.
Your symptoms could mean many things - Migraine or another headache disorder, an issue with your eye, or many other things.
Waking with a headache is often an indication that there are problems with your sleep - too much sleep, too little sleep, an irregular sleep schedule, disrupted sleep, or poor quality sleep. Take a look at Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep .
It truly is important for you to see your doctor to find out what these symptoms mean and get proper treatment. Because answe...
