I am a 25 yr old female and i have had headaches most of my life. But about a week ago they became very strong and frequent lasting all day. They have been going on for over a week now. Along with these headaches i have numbness in my face and my left arm feels like it is falling asleep all day. The base of my head where my neck begans aches. I have felt very weird, sharp pains in my temples,pulseating all over my head, dizziness, confusion at one time, nausea, sensitivity to light, ears ache, sharp pains in my chest every now and then. I am very tired and falling asleep at work. These headaches are so strong that i can not focus and they make me feel very sick. I have been to the dr. he sent me to the ER, they did a CT and it came out neg. But im not sure the ER doctor looked for anything specific. I am worried because i am getting worse not better, especially since this numbness in my left arm has increased with coldness in the tips of my fingers. If you have any idea what could be causing this it would assist me in figuring what is going on. No one really believes there is anything wrong with me but i know when i am not feeling right. Thank you for your ideas and help.

  • Sounds like a classic migraine to me. Go see a neurologist instead of an ER doctor. They'll help much more. There are preventative meds than can help.
