Headache accompanied with neck pain??!!.a

Posted , 4 users are following.


2 weeks ago I woke up in PAIN I could not bend my neck back it was extremly painful, called to the chemist and was told I may of slept funny and was told to try some gel for the neck pain,

however if the pain persists to goto the GP which I did last Wednesday, he examined me and didn't seem concerned, so if I still had pain call back after couple of days!!!

yesterday likewise for the last 7 days in bed I have a headache either side which throbs which has woken each morning, yesterday it was a continuation all day which just lay on my forehead and also abit of pain at the back of my head?

i keep thinking as I'm premenapausable it's just my hormones playing up?

having been to the doctors ( who didn't seem that concerned )

i was wondering what u ladies thought??

i have tried various OTC remedies paracemimal etc also my eyes are like I want to pull out my eyeballs I could press them and they are tender 

i feel terrible and this continuation of headache is it normal?

Any advice please??!!!!!!!. X

      Sounds dreadful. I think having the feeling of being run over by a truck would send me to hormone therapy. There are little pellets that can be placed easily under the skin that has really helped me.,ask you

      Grt better soon. ❤

    May sound crazy but it happened to me. Had every test possible ran, sent me to ENT Dr etc....Dr finally sent me to the dentist. Come to find out I was grinding my teeth at night and didn't even know it! Causes head pain, neck, shoulder, arm, all the way down your back and arm sometimes he said.

    They fitted me for a mouth guard to wear at night and after just one night I felt 100% better!

    Worth a try😉

    I'm so sorry for your trouble.  I hear migraines can come up in perimenopause even if you haven't had them before.  For my headaches I have to take a prescription medicine.  It's the only thing that cures them for me.  Otherwise I'll have the headache for days.  A real bad one leaves me weak and with aftermath pain.  I hope you can find a cure for it.  I use a cold cloth for it also. 

    Before I started taking the  prescription medicine  I'd take a can of regular coke, which I do not like the taste of, and mix it with about two teaspoons of sugar, two tylenol and one aspirin.  It usually helped within a couple of hours.
