Pain in side of head
 
Hi,

I am an 18 year old girl and for about two months I've been getting a dull pain in the left side of my head that lasts for a few seconds. It doesn't happen every day though, about 3 or 4 times a week, maybe even less. The first time I got this pain was when I was sitting and eating my lunch at work. It was like a 'bubbling' pain and it lasted for just under a minute and it made me very worried.

I work in an office and I sit at a computer all day. Sometimes it can get uncomfortable as my chair doesn't 'fit into' the desk so I find myself leaning forward a lot. I also have to lift heavy boxes once every few weeks.

I'm very worried and scared that it might be a brain aneurysm or hemorrhage. I also think I've been suffering with anxiety for about a year. Things like article on news websites about people my age dying makes it worse. I haven't been diagnosed with anxiety though. I just want to be normal again.

Should I go to the doctors and get an MRI scan? I have also been thinking about going to get a massage to ease the tension in my neck. I am very worried! What should I do? Thank you :)

Catherine, Go to your doctor and tell him what you have written here, Then He can suggest tests or how you should proceed from there. The doctor has to know what is happening to you before he can assist you. It may be nothing, but He is the one you
should confide in first. Lots of luck to you...
