Headaches

Why is a headache only on the left side of head?

There are a wide variety of answers to this question. The most common and least dangerous is a muscular strain at the neck or front of the skull, producing a unilateral headache. Another possibility is migraines.

Have you worked out hard recently? Fallen, or been invovled in a car accident? Heavy duty stress? Any of these can cause these symptoms. First let's check the easy, likely stuff,and go from there.

A bit more:

Migraine headaches often occur on the same side of the head each time, especially for those who have them on a fairly frequent basis. For years I had migraines, which were always on the right side. Some people have them on the right side, some on the left.

If you continue to have them, or if you've already been having them for a while, you really need to see a doctor for a diagnosis and treatment.

Does focalin xr give you headaches?

Yes, one of the possible side effects of Focalin XR is headaches. I've taken it for over four years now and have somewhat concluded (for me atleast) that stress plays a major role in causing a headache-not a normal headache though, a bit stronger, not too fun at all--this is especially so when you have your concentration broken when trying to complete something (ex:trying to complete a project at work and a fellow co-worker begins to bug you in some way)-small things like that have caused major headaches lasting for hours.
Make sure you get proper sleep as well-a lack of sleep causes them from too much stress on the brain. Hope this helped somewhat,

How do you get a headache?

You can get a headache for many, many different reasons, including being too hot, hearing loud noises, being hungry, being thirsty, or being tired.

If you have back problems it can cause you to have a headache if something is out of place. Also if you don't have enough sleep and stay up really late for a few days it can cause you to have a headache. If you get hit in the head with an object it could cause one too.

Can a humidifier cause headache?

Yes, humidifier cause headache. Because, humidity completely saturates the air around you with water vapor, making it more difficult for your body to obtain the necessary amount of oxygen for proper brain function. This not only makes you feel sluggish, but also leads to painful migraine headaches. According the report of the "National Headache Foundation" that high humidity levels can often trigger weather migraines, also known as barometric pressure headaches.

Why do you get a headache after swimming?

Other possible causes are: Your goggles are strapped on too tight---check this by wearing a hat that is too tight for a while, to see if you get the same headache. Unfortunately even quite loose goggles can cause this kind of headache Also, a recent study has shown that swim goggles raise intraocular pressure---with the potential to cause eye-pain related headache. This might be the mechanism of the headache above, but you could check with divers type goggles which cover both eyes, as they seem not to raise intraocular pressure.

Can Strattera cause sexual side effects in adults?

The official literature (from Eli Lilly, FDA, et al) only lists negative side effects, saying about 1% have decreased libido, plus 2% of men have performance problems. Then there are anecdotes of people who avoided sex due to urinary discomfort. On the other hand, many people attest to increased libido and/or performance on Strattera. However, some of that might be because their illness was under control and they felt better about their lives, rather than any direct pharmacological effect.

Final answer: it's a roll of the dice, could be good or bad for your sex life, or quite possibly have no effect.

There is significant anecdotal evidence of sexual effects from this drug. Alterations in urine flow, alterations in ejaculation, and impotence. This effect seems to occur very quickly for those so effected.

OK, just took a 60mg pill for the first time ever about 2 hrs ago. Felt super horny, so I proceed accordingly... limp erection, weird precum, and straining sensation when I ejaculated. I was more focused than usual though! - by Wiiwacky on 13 April 2009

I just started taking Straterra about a month ago. I didn't notice my sex drive increase until about a week ago when I went up to 80mg. I started having sex more often, had very strong orgasms, and in a couple of cases had two orgasms within 10 minutes, something I have never had happen before. I didn't even think about it being related to the straterra until tonight after it happened again, so I thought I'd research it. There really isn't a lot of evidence for it, but I'm definitely thinking it has an effect.

What causes numbness on your head?

  • I'm actually 15 and my entire head is numb right now, i have no neck problems or anything that my doctor and i know of. I can feel when something's touching my ears, but i have no idea if it hurts or not. there will be some brief periods during the week when i can suddenly feel things around my head. i wake up at 4:00-4:30 every day. i hate my german teacher:), and i have a 6 page paper due in 12 hours and im screwed. Hope i helped
  • Numbness on your head may be caused by twisting the neck while the body is flat on its back. This position is achieved most often while asleep; the head lolls to the side with the face facing the left shoulder, or when attempting to watch television in the same position. Blood is not allowed to flow through the neck's artery causing the numbness. The numbness generally goes away when the body is righted, that is, one trains themselves to sleep on their backs with the head in alignment, or the entire body is twisted to face the television when in a lying position. Numbness may also occur when the head rests upon the arm near the temple, but does not occur if the cheek, for example, rests on the same arm. The numbness generally happens within 10 to 15 minutes and the entire right side of the head at the top is without feeling until circulation improves. Circulation is achieved within 5 minutes.
  • I am a 24 years old male and it has been many years since my head started getting numb sometimes. I usually get it when I am under a lot of stress and or I fear of something bad going to happen. Mostly it lasts for days but sometimes it goes away in a few hours. And each time my head gets numb I think I have a tumor or something and then it makes it even worse till I see a doctor about it, and be told that its only the anxiety.
  • I also suffer from head numbness but it did not start till my car accident 6 years ago. Ever since then, every now and then I get the numbness and the doctors keep telling me it's a migraine What's Going On????? I went to several different doctors and they just don't get it it's not a migraine I can feel it.
  • I am a 23 year old male and I frequently experience numbness and tingling in my head, specifically near the back and on the right. It also causes a flight numbness or ache in my right ear. I sincerely worry this is a problem related to cell phone use as I've stupidly had one since I was 11. It seems to get worse when I think about it thought which makes me think I'm just being a hypochondriac, but there are other times I notice it out of no where. It's very weird that there are so many young people around my age with this problem.............
  • I GET THE SAME THINGS. i was cutting hair and i had to leave my client because i thought i was about to have a stroke, I'm only 24 years old... i had to get another girl to finish my hair cut as my forehead temple and cheek were all tight and numb feeling went to the doctor and she was like its a migraine. i have migraines a lot and i said no that's not what it is she says its called a Ora migraine. I'm going to look it up however i am still scared for tumors or brain cancer... and same thing as you i was in a car accident and it never happened before that....sometimes the back of my head goes numb and the center of my spine too... always on the left side i am booked in with a nuerologist!!!
  • Dude this is freakin' weird! I AM 24 ALSO and have the same problem with the numbness!!! Though I was not in a car accident I woke up one morning and my whole head was numb and I could feel the blood rushing back to it as I got up but tingling and pain was still there for the rest of the day! Then I figured it was me cutting off my circulation while I slept until it started randomly happening during the day and other random times! It never stopped and even as I type this my the whole back of my head is about to be numb now. . . THIS SUCKS AZZ!!! I have always had problems with my scalp cause it is tender in the center and ridiculously painful sometimes (sensitive) hair dressers call it acute tender head-a- something or other but the numbness is new and gotta go!!! I thinking Im about to have a stroke or heart attack or something!!! What the hell are we supposed to do?

I am a 24 year old female and am shocked to discover there are other people the same age with the same problem with numbness and tingling of the head. I too get anxious when I have symptoms of any sort and it took me a while to gather the nerve to even look up what might be the cause of the symptoms. I too was in a car accident when I was nineteen and suffered whip lash, but only recently started experiencing these symptoms. I am relieved to hear that what I am experiencing might be less severe then a brain hemorrhage or cancer. I really scared of going to the doctor. Please keep updating your posts about what the doctors say so I can also know what might be wrong with me.

How weird, I am also 24 and a hair stylist. I suffer from migraines, neck & shoulder pain from my job etc. For the first time today the back of my head went numb and very cold feeling, which to me was a bit strange. I have had a pretty medium headache all day today. I went home and went to bed and somewhat later my head started going numb and down my back in the middle around my spine with the cold feeling again. Prehaps my spine is out and pinching on some nerves??I have not been in a car accident before but have slipped and fallen straight onto my back hitting my head on wooden floor receiving whiplash then.

Finding a Neurologist and requesting a mri and a having your brain scanned will be the best thing you could do. Upon you getting that done, ask the doctor if they can look for Chiari 1 Malformation. More information on that you can find on: http://www.asap.org/index.php/disorders/chiari-malformation

You never want to assume or diagnose yourself.

Well folkes I am pushing 50 know and had this cold head for many years ,stayed away from dinning rooms that are air condintioned etc.

I wear a ball cap ever day and a bed cap every night to bed.

Been to a few Doctors.They believe I frozze my head to many times working up north. Not !

There is hope. It is mostly in the neck . Chiropractors helped some .

But what realy helped me is taking 2 Calcium pills 500mg each before bed time.

It took about 2 weeks to notice a diffence.

Must be because we have not been drinking enough milk ,more pop and beer etc.

Joints are working better ,maybe allowing more blood flow to the scalp now.

Still wear a cap in cool days,just don't need a hot shower or use of a hiar dryer in the morning.

Are headaches a symptom of pregnancy?

They can be, but probably won't be the only symptom.

It is indeed possible that headaches can be a symptom of pregnancy. It is quite normal to have more frequent headaches as your body changes in the first trimester. There are several good research sites with this information on it if you search them out or ask.

They can be, but they probably won't be the only symptom.

I would not consider headaches a sign of pregnancy. Headaches can be a symptom of pregnancy. There are many contributing factors to headaches, even dehydration. A missed period would be a more reliable sign.

Hello,

Yes they are.

ANSWER

HEY...I started my pregnancy with the headaches. To this day I still have them everyday or other day. It is a sign of pregnancy

There are a number of causes of headaches in early pregnancy. It can definitely be a sign. You will usually have other symptoms as well.

i don't know if i am pregnant i always have headahes,vomitting and sometimes feel backpain.. every night i feel sick..

Yes it is a definitely one of the pregnancy signs.

Anyone can get headaches, leading to signs many problems humans have. I'm going with no. Although, headaches do occur with pregnancy, they also happen to people who have stress. Pregnancy can be stressful.

What is the prognosis for temporal arteritis?

The effects of temporal arteritis may range from fatal, to serious, to mild and self-limiting. Immediate treatment with corticosteroids often produces relief of symptoms and can help with temporary visual impairment. Many patients are able to slowly wean off their medication after a period of about 1-2 years. Temporal arteritis is currently thought to be the result of autoimmune disease and as such, patients may find they suffer recurrent flares of disease activity necessitating continual therapy to control their immune system. The condition may return again if treatment is discontinued. Visual impairment which is not treated immediately is often permanent. Temporal arteritis is often misdiagnosed as Migraine.

For appropriate diagnosis, treatment and prevention of headache disorders, seek the help of a board certified headache specialist.

What does it mean if you can feel a lump on the right side of your skull above your ear?

Answer

If it is new, any new lump anywhere on your body should be discussed with your doctor.

If it is painful or soft, it could be anything from a tumor to an ingrown hair. If you have been in a car accident and had glass cuts on your head, it is possible to have pieces of glass work it's way back to the surface of the skin even years later.

If it is hard, does not move then you press on it, and feels like part of the skull, it probably is part of the skull. The human skull is made up of several different bones which are rarely perfectly smooth. Where those bones grew together in your childhood can cause irregularities on the surface of the skull, some of which can be felt through the skin.

Answer

I have had a lump above my ear for a week. At 1st it was not painful and flesh colour, after a few days it became a little painful and reddish. I went to my GP today and found that it is an impetigo, a benign infection of the skin that is not harmful but can't usually clear on its own and can spread to other parts of the body or to others. The GP has prescribed me an antibiotic cream and he reckons the lump will be gone in 3 days. In any case , get lumps checked out as you can't really get a diagnosis unless an expert looks at it

Hope this helped a bit.

ANSWER: Sometimes, it can mean you have swollen lymph nodes. I do. Don't panic, just talk to your physician.
