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. Other symptoms I am experiencing is nausea, occasional tenderness, I feel emotional and vulnerable, and there is pressure in my head and I do feel it when I move it or sit still. I do not feel any pressure in my eyes or any vision problems and I do not hear any swishing in my ears. I have tried over the counter medications such as Advil, Aleve, and Excedrin migraine. But none of them work. I have also been experiencing shortness of breath in the morning for the past few days, feeling very cold before going to bed and a sharp pain going across my upper abdomen. I have gone to the doctor and he wasn’t very much help...

Now, I have been wearing glasses for over 15 years, and my headaches are still very present. And that's the least of it because I often get very bad migraines as well. They are bad enough that I feel dizzy, nauseous, and basically I am in a lot of pain. Light bothers me, loud noises bother me, and etc. For a 21-year old, I may be wrong, but it doesn't seem right. I shouldn't be getting so many headaches/migraines right? It's almost daily now, and that's not all as well. Now when I get my headaches, I have a ...

That said, you need to see your doctor for a diagnosis and any treatment that may be necessary. As much as we'd like to help and answer your question, the only person who can do that is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet.
