2 month headache + ringing in the ears
For the last 2 months I've experienced severe headache pain on the left side of my head, but ONLY when I move my head (either up/down or side/side).  Also, I have experienced an intermittent (several hours a day) roaring/ringing sound in my ears, accompanied with mild dizziness.  

The headache is 24/7, and not alleviated by ibuprofen or aspirin.  Whenever I mildly shake my head, the pain is there.  Dull, pressure pain.  And then with the ears, it's like a loud, dull roaring sound.  The dizziness is not acute, but present.  

I have an appointment w/ the Dr, but what do these symptoms suggest?  I did have Thyroid cancer in 2006, w/ a total thyroidectomy and RAI treatment.

  Hi....the pain meds u r taking may be causing the ringing....many NSAIDS and other pain meds do have this side effect.

Let ur Dr know all meds u take including the OTC pain meds and about the ringing, they will do testing to see if it is an inner ear issue.

The meds I've been taking are just standard ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and I've only taken them sparingly -- a few times a week.  I did see my Dr today and he's ordered an MRI for this afternoon.
