Left Eye, Head & Neck-Headaches


Every once a while I get these bad headaches where the left side of my neck, eye and head hurts really bad and I have to wait until the pain goes away on its own. I tried taking 800MG of Ibuprophine which takes away my headaches but not even ibuprophine works.

The pain is located behind my left blurry eye, left side of head and the left muscle behind my neck. There is no blood or any kind of fainting spells just these bad headaches. My vission use to be 20/20 until about 5 years ago and now my left eye is blurry and my right eye is still 20..

My age is 33
Height 5'9
Weight 170lbs.

Re: Left Eye, Head & Neck-Headaches

See your doctor - for 2 reasons

1. You need to be checked out to make sure there is no sinsiter cause for your headaches (this is extremely unlikely, but in needs rulling out)

2. It sounds like you have migraine. There are modern anti migraine drugs that can stop the ehadache in its tracks - they dont just mask the pain like ibuprofen and other painkillers, they literaly stop the migraine, however, a prescription is required.

Well, it might be worth a theraputic trail to see if a migrain medicine works for you.

If not, your doctor may be able to offer a stronger analgesic than ibuprofen.
