    what is wrong with my head?

    Today makes 4 weeks that I have had a headache. It is not a normal headache. This is in one spot of my head right in the back on the right side about 2 1/2 - 3 inches behind my right ear about about at the base of my skull . anyway There has appeared a knot under my skull. The pain comes and goes but sometimes when it hurts I cant even see there is like a black spot that is in my right eye and my head feels full. pressure I guess is what you would call it. anyhow, saturday I was setting at my table and had a pain hit in the back of my head and the full feeling and this time when it did it my face started draw to on side. My right eye looked like it was shutting and my daughter laughed at me she said mommy your eye looks funny , my mouth on one side went numb also any ideas? I have been under alot of stress lately with my job and an ill husband and having 2 teenage daughters. I do not have high blood pressure but am a diabetic. I dont have time to take off work to go to dr. nor can I afford it. no pain meds stops the pain. I have tried tylenol, ibuprophen 800 mg, percocet 325, tylenol 3 w/ codene 500 mg. anything you can think of. I have had it to wake me up out of sleep in a pain so severe it felt like my brain was going to blow out the back of my head. as a matter of fact that is how I am feeling right now. I need some advise here PLEASE!!!!

    cant afford to miss work. Bills have to be paid and groceries to buy. I am getting ready to go to work right now. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas about what it might be. My sister in law said I could be getting ready to have a stroke. that goes with diabetes and the too much stress with this job too.

    Honestly, it might be cheaper, if money is the issue, to go now, and have to make monthly payments, than to have something happen and end up have massive hospital bills. You do have to think about you daughters This is what I tell my husband when things go wrong with us. If it was me, and I tend to put things off, I would be at the dr's office!! Good luck and please don't put it off!

    You do not have sick, personal, or vacation days at your job?

    Most, if not all doctors are open on Saturdays. The hours are shorter. My doctor Saturday hours are 9:00 am to 12 noon.
    Some even have evening office hours for patients who must work on weekends.

    Re: what is wrong with my head?

    I care for an elderly lady who has alzeheimer's I do not have personl days or sick days. the only thing I could do is go to er on the weekend and hope that I am not admitted so I can go back to work on monday. taking care of a family of 4 on 155.oo a week isnt all that grand. you cant afford to miss 1 day or do with out groceries for that week. don't get me wrong my hubby works too but he gets paid twice a month and what he gets goes to pay the bills I put gas in the car buy the groceries and all the cleaning stuff by the time I do that every week there is nothing left. I will try to go to dr. tomorrow though cause this is really starting to worry me. thanks everyone

    Re: what is wrong with my head?

    Glad to hear you are going to go to the ER. They usually have to admit anyone regardless of income. You won't be any good to any one if you are ill, just think of that and like Jon said, this might be something that can be totally preventable.

    I am currently on work comp on a pretty low income myself, and believe me I know how it feels to try to cover all of these bills, but really, your health has got to come first.

    I suffer from headaches too, or did until I found the right med, but this sounds a little bit worriesome to me. So please do go in this weekend if not sooner and let us know how you are doing. Good Luck!

    I think you have problems with vessels and recommend to see a doctor.

    Hey,
    Listen, since you can't afford to miss work and want to find out more information, you can try this and see if it helps. I have been using a web portal called Health Site Guide, http://www.healthsiteguide.com, for my health questions. It's really easy and may really help you out. On the left of the homepage there is a "Health Concerns" drop-down menu. Go to it and click on headaches. It will take you to a page with a list of websites, all of which have been pre-searched for headaches. Give it a try. It could be informative. There are also links to medical enyclopedias on the homepage.

    Hi Miz, Im in NJ as well (Toms River area). You're lucky to have alot of docs with evening & weekend hours in your area. I havent had luck where I am. The only place I found near me that has Sat hours is a general care walk-in care center, which is good for minor things. But when I start calling around different docs, specialists, even for physical therapy, it seems the lastest appt's I can get are 4 or 5pm and none on weekends. I always gripe about that b/c I think what about everyone that works? Not everyone can constantly leave work for appts. I always end up using up all my personal & vacation days <ughhhh>. Oh well, such is life.
