My brain feels like it is swollen and is going to explode. Every time I bend over, lie down or just move in general it starts to throb. The back of my neck all the way up to the lower cranium is also in pain. I feel hot and flushed yet I have a temperature of 97. Along with this, my eyes feel swollen and there is pressure behind them. It sounds like it could be a sinus infection to me but I have no other symptoms of a sinus infection. I get severe migraines a lot but I have never felt anything like this before. Is this just another migraine or is something else wrong.

Thanks for using this forum....

tobacco abuse can definitely cause this..I feel it is cervical spondylitis and should be should not be difficult to manage and once diagnosed you will feel much better with diagnosis...Some neck excersises will help after pain is gone....

take care....
