Daily Headaches

Topic created · 5 Posts · 367 Views
  • Hoping to gain some insight from my fellow guinea pigs on my current situation. Over the past month or two, I have been getting constant daily headaches on the right side of my head. I do not have them immediately upon waking up, but while eating my first meal they start to set in. They progressively get worse throughout the day and my head feels like I got headshotted by a 12 gauge when lifting, bending over, and sometimes even chewing. I’m currently on a cruise and have been for the past few weeks, and my bloods checked out the last blast. Gave blood today in hopes of helping. Anyone experience anything like this? Haven’t touched orals since early February and have been on test only since. The doctor was no help at all, just ordered more bloodwork and a CAT scan but would like to resolve this without bloodwork through my doctor and radiation from a cat scan. Blood pressure is also perfect, really appreciate any input from you guys.

  • Have you had any jaw pain, jaw clenching, teeth grinding, while awake or while asleep?

    I could be entirely mistaken, but with GTG bloods&BP, it sounds like it could be related to TMJ.

  • With a decade of experience in neurosurgery/ neurocritical care - get the damned cat scan. I’ve seen too much shit over the years. If it were me , that’s exactly what I’d do especially with otherwise good blood work and normal BP. There is much more than just tumors (which is what I imagine came to mind when your doctor suggested it) to be worried about. In this instance I promise you it’s better to be safe rather than sorry later. Don’t blow it off man - and it does not sound like TMJ.

    Came back to edit this :

    Seriously - please get it checked. If you get a cat scan , and can give me proof of getting it done, I will give you $200 store credit - no other purchase required.
