Have in mind I'm 14 years old. So for two weeks now I've had headaches dizziness, fatigue, back pain and pain at the back of my neck. (Strangely my headaches are all in different places of my head but a constant pain is at the top and bottom of my head.) It gets heavier each time it happens. I went to the doctor and took simple test but all came out normal. Any helpful idea of what I'm dealing with?
Well dum dum me didn't notice about the neck and back pain
I wouldn't think this would be an eye-realted matter. But just so you know, the part of the brain that controls your eyes is right at the base of the head...
Maybe you could have pulled a neck muscle.
Or one of the spinal bones up towards your neck is out of whack.
me 2. 25 y/o fem feel sick all the time. tests are normal.
i'm a 25 year old female and have been having all the same symptoms a few days a week for around a year now. all my bloodwork comes back normal. the worst symptoms are the fatigue, which is every day and debilitating sometimes, the frequent headaches, and the pain in my spine, right below the shoulder blades mid-back. i dont have any slipped disks, ive seen a orthopedist. doctor cant find anything wrong, so he just blows it off. but i dont feel good. =( anybody know whats the deal??? i wish i had an answer for you, and for myself.. i'm only 25 and im so tired all the time, i feel like i'm a hundred years old and falling apart. if anyone knows anything about this, please let me in on it! heh.
I too suffer from lower back pain which usually spreads down my legs and across my upper neck and down my arms. This can be quite severe as I suffer then from nausea and dizziness when I try to stand up. I have been in a new job since May and the first bout of this was from what I reckoned to be a malfunctioning air conditioning unit constantly blowing cold air down on me. As this actually caused my neck to lock up in one place and I was literally bed bound for a week and a 1/2. Since then I have changed seats but I feel the muscles have been affected as I am out of work again with the same symptoms. Although not as severe this time, the pain is antagonising and causes me to be quite weak and lathargic. Not a fan of physiotherapists or chiroppractors. But if anyone could recommend an alternative to how I can combat this it would be greatly appreciated.
im 20 years old and near sighted using eye glasses for about 5 years. Till last year i always have had headache for more than 2 weeks. Now i suffer from headache and pain around my left eyes almost everyday. While reading books i noticed that my eye sight changes and its hard for me to read the letters. And there are times that i feel like my eye visions changes and become more blurred, then it will back again to normal. I also have migraine which is now i dont know if it is the reason for headache or from my eyes.
I am also having problems with my neck, which I was told did not heal the right way after a car accident about 10 years ago. I have nausea and frequent dizzy spells, and sometimes head aches. I also have sinus problems and congestion. The phlegm is sometimes so bad, I cannot sing anymore the way I used to. I also have sometimes a sore throat.
I have been going to a chiropractor for the past few years, and after a few adjustments most of my symptoms will go away for a few weeks or months. The adjustments seem to be the only thing that helps me.
I always have headaches, migrains, dizzy spells, back pain between my shoulders, just everywhere. I also have high blood pressure. I saw my dr and finally said I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Do your job and find out what the hell is wrong with me!!! I had a sleep study done and have sleep apnea, a bunch of blood work from an arthritis specialist, I was very low in vitamin D so I tried that to no prevail. Well, The nuerologist did a series of pressure points and then I was diagnosed with Fibryomyagia. There is no test for it, they have to rule out everything else first. I have had MRI's, Cat scans, Sleep studies, blood work and so on. I suffer from chronic pain, always being tired, blood pressure issues, the dizzyness...ect I have suffered for years, I am 40yrs old, not over weight at all, I considered myself to be in good shape. I would tell your Dr to do his/her job or find a new one. It took me 10 yrs to get an answer, don't be a test subject. Get results. I am on Gabapentin for my pain, and on meds for my blood pressure after trying 4, and sleep with a C-PAP machine.
I feel so much better but I felt like you and it ended up to be Fibromyalgia. Good luck to you!
Like smokey212309, I too am having symptoms which I believe to be surfacing from a neck injury that happened almost 6 years ago (Former figure skater..took a fall on the ice rink) and have found Symptoms didn't show up in my back for at least a year, when I was 13. After being shuffled back and forth from my Family Doc, to an orthopedic specialist, a possible scoliosis diagnosis (negative on that), pain meds, MRI and X-rays of my back, and Physical Therapy, I still hadn't gotten any relief. Eventually I saw a chiropractor as a last resort, who identified via an Xray (which I saw) my symptoms were due to the vertebra in my neck being out of alignment and pushing on my nerves. a year and a half of adjustments later and my neck was back to how it should be Now, at 18, I am having these symptoms again: Headaches, Migraines as well, frequent sinus congestion(with it the feeling of clogged hearing) that is also preventing me from the singing the way I used to, sometimes stiff neck (it always hurts), and a sore/tight back. The pain from which gets so bad sometimes that I can't hardly move(my boyfriend actually had to help me get up from the bed last week so I could start my day). My joints aches and I'm always feeling tired. These symptoms are worse then I have had before. The headaches get so bad that (even when I have no other migraine symptoms) my head feels like it's going to explode. I plan to visit my chiropractor soon to see if my neck is once again causing these issues, but they were not as severe the last time.
I have been experiencing these exact same symptoms for a little over a week now. I don't know if I should go to the doctors because it seems like I am ALWAYS there. My back hurts unless I'm laying down for a long period of time. I always have been getting really dizzy and my blood pressure has been extremely low. If the probably persists I am eventually going to go to the doctors.
As a teenager I too had terrible headaches/back ache. Eventually after going to my GP and trying all sorts of treatments and therapies I opted for a deep tissue massage therapy instead of chiropracter. The positioning of my head wasn't correct at the top of my spine (it wasn't correcly aligned off centre and was pinching a nerve) and so it had to be aligned properly. After a couple of sessions I was fine. Experiece headaches now and then but know how to manage them - when I'm de-hydrated, haven't eaten regularily enough or through tension i.e. work related. Also 1) drop your shoulders ! So much muscular tension is caused with people holding their shoulders up too much and 2) across your forehead run lots of blood capillaries which carry oxygen - if they are tense the oxygen isn't feeding your brain enough, so if you feel a headache coming on gently rub your forehead in ciruclar motion and this will help relax the capillaries and help the blood flow. For those who think this is mad think about the pills and potions you are taking (with the exception of paracetamol)- do you honestly think these are natural and good for you? They are often quick fix remedies and do not treat the root of the problem. A lot of it's to do with education and self awareness and understanding of your symptoms.
All of you should look into "Lyme Disease" as well. It includes all of the symptoms you mention. And, you could have it for years and not even know it! Please don''t say, "Oh, I''ve never been bitten by a tick." or "I don''t live..." because that information is incorrect. You could all have it! I had all of the same symptoms and it turned out that I have Lyme Disease! I never saw a tick, never had a rash, etc. I live in Colorado! I''m getting better but it''s been a long haul!
My 18 yr old son had similar symptoms and was finally diagnosed with migraines. He is taking a beta blocker daily and it has helped tremendously. He suffered for 6 months going thru test after test and ruling everything else out. His neurologist says he has many patients who have the daily headache and fatigue and neck pain....not the typical migraine type headache. So far, the beta blocker has been a life saver for him. Hope this helps!
I too have had a lot of these symptoms for a year now... also with it... awful nights where just as you nod off you wake with a start... goes on all night. Then I feel really naff for days with the upper back pain. I too am now on beta blockers after having a strange reading on a heart monitor. I am currently waiting to see another heart specialist. ( had heart surgery when I was 6) (now 3 but just wished someone would say what it is! beta blockers .... not sure if they are helping... but doc said may nd to increase dose!
For like the past few weeks i have had constant headaches and i always feel tired. Ive had backaches since the third grade because of a car accident but now of days they seem to be getting worse. i have no ideas whats wrong with me.
I have dizziness,sore throat,ears are painful(even though the doc said they were perfectly fine), I have had a headache for the past 4-5 days and it wont go even with paraceteomal. Please can someone help me, Im sick of being dizzy and tired. thanks!
TO ALL ABOVE! I am a liscensed massage therapist and recommend that all of you get a massage discuss your symptoms get a drs clearance and get a massage. alot of time injuries, sleep deprivation, and even stress can cause trigger points in muscles that can lead to headaches, dizzy spells and ofcourse pain in the muscles holding the trigger points. trigger points are small areas of a muscles fiber that becomes contracted/tight and loses all blood supply which causes the symptoms said above. I hope this helps.
