Until a couple of years ago, I never got headaches. But, now I have them just about every day. They are rarely horrible, but a constant annoyance. Sometimes throbbing, always a tightening sensation, in the back of my head. Either accompanied with radiating pain on the right or straight through to my forehead.
Last week I noticed a lump behind my right ear (like a pea cut in half on the lower part of the skull behind the ear). Doc says it is a cyst - hard as bone and painless.
Last night I was massaging my neck and noticed another lump where the spine meets the skull (egg sized and shaped - soft) but when I pressed on it to determine if it is soft or hard I set off a headache that won't stop. Now the neck, head are radiating in pain.
Saw chiropractor said my C1 is inflammed and not to touch and should go down on it's own.
I was wondering could these headaches, earaches bumps etc be related? Is it something I should delve into further or just let it go?
