Hello everyone I am 20 years old and was in the ER yesterday because my neck was stiff and I have been having a near nonstop headache for the past week or so. I will list all of my symptoms as I am not sure if some of them may be causing the headache or not. I have had a stiff neck, not so much that I can't move it but sort of in the back of my head. My neck has also become rather sore and hurts a little for me to turn it in certain directions. The headaches are not so severe that I am not able to function but enough to be really annoying. Sometimes the pain will spike a bit.
I have been taking Ibuprofen with codeine and it doesn't do much to relieve the pain. Also I have been having stomache aches a little below my belly button on either side. It has made me feel nausea but not to the point of where I want to throw up. They have done blood tests and those all came back normal. I didn't have an MRI or CT scan as the doctor said it seemed I did not need one. I don't know if this is connected with my headaches but I get a slight pain in my groin as if being kicked there but it dissapates very quickly.
I have had a little trouble concentrating at times but this may just be from my head hurting. Also not sure if this is connected but I have been having a very minor twitchy pain on one side of my chest that also only last a few seconds. The pain is sort of on the right center of my chest. I have high level of anxiety so I don't know if I am causing some of these symptoms myself but the headaches and nausea/ stomach ache has been around for a week now and I wasn't very anxious at the time I started getting them.
