For the past 2 weeks I have been suffering from Headaches at the back of my head, just above the neck. Sometimes the ache goes into the neck, or it goes around the left side of my head and into my left eye. Around the same time as the onset of this ache I also developed pulsatile tinnitus. I can hear it in either ear, and if I press down on the side of my neck, the sound almost disappears on that side.
I went to the GP and mentioned the headaches and the pulsatile tinnitus. She looked in my ears and touched my neck lightly, asking if it felt sore (it didn't) and then dismissed me. She said it was nothing to worry about because it's in both ears and I've reported that there's no hearing loss.
Someone please help me by letting me know if I really just have to live with this? I'm 38, and a little overweight, but generally healthy. I'm usually anaemic, but that's it.
