I've got this horrible neck pain (at the top) causing a headache/sharp pains around the back of my head. Its better than yesterday where I actually seemed to fall asleep(or something) every time the pain came. Thats stopped.
It feels better mostly while I am lying down but still hurts moving around. I have full movement although its sore. I also find that sitting is sore but can be bearable for some time, standing up is agony and makes me feel a little nauseous.
I have pressure in my head in general which isn't helping.
I've been having sinus problems for about a month or so now. Constant build up as far as I can tell.
The nasty thing is that I can smell something, like blood or gunk in the back of my nose and its horrible.
Just wondering whats wrong. I looked up and well its not exactly been helpful. Headache is possible although I know its not a migraine (i get them often enough to know).
Any suggestions would be nice though. Thanks
(also I'm only 20. although there is osteoperosis and osteoarthritis in the family, im very very doubtful its anything like that)
Sounds like a horrible sinus infection. It can cause dizziness, nausea, ear aches, headaches, neck ache, vertigo - and yes that nasty taste also. You might try snuffing warm salty water up your nose - then see a doctor. It won't go away without antibiotics - sorry.
I have some of these symptoms too. I have always been saying that my head hurts , but not just in my head , but around the neck . I did not know how to explain it though.. It hurts really bad when I move around while standing , sitting, or laying down.. I don't know what this is ;o
thank you soo much. I haven't had a chance to get to the doctors, but its finally not hurting as much.
Still horrible smelling in the back of my nose.
I can't take my own blood pressure, but its not a case of coming and going. Its more it stays their constant.
Its draining away slowly so hopefully its just been the sinus infection. Feeling a bitty better. horray.
I'm glad you are feeling somewhat better. I found that Black Elderberry actually helps my sinuses in the morning - I usually wake up hacking and coughing and it clears it right up. Comes in capsule form at the healthfood store - or maybe Walgreens.
