I am a 27 year old male and for the most part pretty healthy. I do have some bad and asthma but that is about it. About 3 months ago I was working on my car and started to get a headache and my siatic nerve also started bugging me. I very rarely ever get headaches so I found it strange. I figured maybe I was over doing it so I finished up and took an advil and went and laid on my couch. By the end of that night I had such a severe head ache that I could barely get off the couch. I laid on the couch for the remainder of the night and by the time the morning came my neck was also very stiff and I still had a severe headache. I figured maybe I was getting a sinus infection as the pollen had been really bad around that time so I took some sudafed and continued to lay on the couch. By the next day I was still in terrible shape so I got myself off the couch and went to the emergency clinic around the corner from my house. He examined me and gave me a shot for the pain and sent me on my way with some tension headache medication and also sent me in for a CT scan which came back normal. The tension headache medication did not do anything and I finally went to my primary doctor two days later. He examined me and gave me 7 days worth of an antibiotic and told me to finish it out. I did and started feeling slightly better but there was a strange feeling of pressure around my eye and forehead. This pressure moves around but only stays on the left side of my head. Sometimes it would feeling like a burning or tingling senstaion and other times it would feel like a sharp stabbing. During this time my neck finally loosened up. I went back in after the round of antibioutics was finished and saw another doctor. He took a history of what had happened and then took some bloodwork along with giving me an even stronger antibiotic. The bloodwork came back normal and I finished out the antibiotic. The pressure has slowly gone away over the course of the last 3 months but is still there and a nuisance. I also experienceed a lot of fatigue during these 3 months. When it does come on I am able to keep it in check with some extra strength excedrin, but as soon as it wears off the pressure usually comes right back. It usually intensifies too when I bend over or strain myself. During this time period I also saw an ENT who said my sinuses looked fine and I am currently seeing a Neurologist who thinks this could be Virus related. The Neurologist sent me in for an MRI and that came back normal too. The only other information I can give is that I was on vacation in Mexico a month before all of this occurred. Anyone have any ideas or have any of the same things happeneing to them?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
