For the past 6 days now I've had this constant headache from within, or behind both eyes. It's always there but seems to be worse when I look with my eyes, in a different direction of which my head is facing. (Head facing straight, look left, pain in the right side of both eyes, look right, pain in left side of both eyes, look up, pain in bottom of both eyes, etc.)

The headaches have sustained all 6 days, however the back pain and weakness started up about 3 or 4 days ago.

The back pain, like the headache, is pretty much constant, but worsens if I try to touch my chin to my chest, or look down at all for that matter.
The pain is in the lower to mid back area.

I spent all of yesterday in the ER while they ran tests and examined me.
I am worried that it might be caused by Meningitis, and the doctors were too, at first, but came to the conclusion that my symptoms were not bad enough to be Meningitis.

First signs of nausea appeared two days ago, and yesterday morning I got sick for the first time.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

  • Also, I've noticed that I've been having problems going to the bathroom..I can no longer feel or control the muscle, or whatever it is you use to "push out" urine. I have to sit down and wait several minutes before enough builds up to come out, and its always a very small amount, so I'm very frequently having to go.I should also mention that I am an otherwise fairly healthy 16 year old male.The headaches are persisting, this is the 8th day.I'm also noticing a little discomfort in my neck or upper back area.
