Help Me Out

I've been having this headache for two days now. It feels like someone is pouring water on the top left side of my head. There is pressure near the temple area and near my sinus are on my nose.
I called the on call doctor and he said that it sounded like a migraine, but I don't have any of the "classic" migraine symptoms, except for sensitivity to sound. I do have a slight pain in my neck, so I'm wondering if it's a tension headache.
I've been stressed out over my health issues lately, so I'm wondering if this is causing it. I went to the doctor's last weekend and she found a murmur in my corrarded artery. I had the Doppler ultrasound done on them and the tech said they looked okay. I also had an Echocardiogram on Friday, but won't find out the results until Tuesday.
I don't have double vision, slurred speech or any of the other signs of anything major. The on call doctor told me if I have any other issues by Tuesday when I call the office to let them know.
The thing that totally freaks me out is the feeling of the water pouring in my head and the pressure. I might also call my eye doctor to see if I can get in to be seen just in case if it's eye related.
It's a pain to have this during the holidays when the doctor's offices are closed.
The on call doctor told me to take Advil and to put a cold compress on my head.
I'm sorry if I'm rambling on, but I'm not happy right now and a bit scared.

Re: Help Me Out

Hello Molly:

I am going through some of the same things as you, except for the carotid artery issue and the pain near the nose. I get the feelings of water on my head, along with one-sided headaches (mine are on the left side).

My neuro also said migraines, although I don't buy it just yet. I don't have extreme sensitivity to light/sound, nor the "I have to drop everything and lie down in a dark room" feeling. Also, I was prescribed a migraine medicine and it doesn't seem to be working...

One thing you may want to do is ask your doctor about ordering an MRI of your sinuses. I read somewhere online that the watery feeling, along with headaches and sinus pain could be the sign of a sinus issue (I forget which) pain is mostly in my neck and the back of my head (although it does hit me in the temple sometimes), therefore I think you and are dealing with separate issues...although I could be completely wrong.

I just wanted to show some support and let you know you are not alone in suffering.
