Q. Head aches terrible

I am suffering with bad headaches everyday for the past week, so i thought i would check up on it from you guys. When the day nears the noon, my head ache becomes worse. No common cold. Kindly give me a solution.
A1Anyone who suffers from headaches knows they can put a damper on everyday life. But not all headaches are alike. Learn what type of headache you have.

A2I'd like to, but there are several missing details: how old are you? Have you had any headaches like these before? Where are these aches located to (both sides, one side, front, back, etc.)? Do you have any associated symptoms? Does the headache worsen when lying down or bending forward? Do you feel any weakness?

And there are more questions needed to diagnose it. Headache may be simple but may also point to a serious problem, and many times the treatment of headache syndrome requires prescription, so I think consulting a doctor would be wise.

Q. Why do they think that the pain is all in my head?

Is there any chance which may wrongfully lead doctor to conclude that our symptoms are of a psychological nature? Why do they think that the pain is all in my head?
AIt may happen very rarely and if he is new to his profession. It doesn’t mean that all those are new to their profession does these mistakes. Doctors cannot "see" and may not understand the sources of your pain or fatigue. However, what they do observe is your anxiety and frustration with having to deal with these symptoms around-the-clock, which may wrongfully lead them to conclude that your symptoms are of a psychological nature. Also, the old school of thought regarding pain is that it is produced by tissue injury, and there is no obvious source of tissue injury in patients with fibromyalgia. Regardless, if your doctor does not believe that your symptoms are real, you owe it to yourself to find another doctor who believes in you and will work with you to help reduce your symptoms.

Q. what causes the sound of cracking noises in the head all the time

it was said i had acute sinusitis but honestly i think it is more . I don't know why i have cracking noises in my head . I am very concerned about this also my neck is always stiff feeling and aching all the time. . My eyes are very tired and i see blue spots and they hurt behind the eye very badly . I have headaches very often
A1wow...that really sounds serious...i have chronic sinusitis and i can tell you i had horrible headaches but nothing like you describe now. i would strongly consider going to a hospital and checking it out...
tell us what was the result!
A2Gee Jennife, If I had all these things going on at once I'd be very concerned to get a proper diagnosis.
Were you, or are you on any medication for the Sinusitis? Could you be having a side affect to any meds? I don't know what to tell you but if you've been treated are still having all this trouble, you need to get a second opinion. Possibly an MRI might give a clearer picture if there is something else going on.
You should tell your doctor how you feel and that you would like to get an X'ray, MRI or a second opinion as it is causing you undue stress and worry. You have to be
persistent sometimes as some doctors don't like to be told they have misdiagnosed the problem. Good luck.

Q. I have a pain in the side of my head how can I know if it is serious?

In the last two days i have a pain in the side of my head. The pain is more severe after eating but I can feel it almost all the time. how can I know if its something severe or just a temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome ?
A1IHAVE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR OR U CAN USE TEMPROTAR
A2Sounds like muscle spasm, since chewing makes it worse. That can be easily treated - we treat TMJ syndrome in my office and head and neck pain are associated with TMJ. A proper diagnosis is required to know for sure. Worth checking into. Suwanee Dental Care is a great place to start.
A3To get a formal diagnosis you need to go to the doctor but in general, if the pain stays the same all the time, it can be an inflammatory disease like polymyalgia rheumatica
and if the pain is stronger when you wake up it can even be cancer.
So don't be lazy - head pain is a serious situation go for a formal evaluation with your GP help!

Q. l have a pain in the head,l can feel sometime inside.

A1sounds like you have a brain,lol, go see a doctor
A2I am not quite sure I fully understand the problem but if you are experiencing headaches on a regular basis you should see a doctor to consult. It might be that you're suffering from migraine attacks and the proper medications can help you experience less pain.

AAlopecia Areata is considered lately as an auto immune disease , that means your body is attacking your hair. this considered beyond treatment. but there are several ways of handling it- local anti immunic treatment and so forth, here is a good site about it:
