    Dad of two boys needs help

    I'm a father of two boys (4&6) and I'm struggling with undiagnosed headaches, shoulder pain, back pain for the last few months. the headaches are always present but hurt most when I lay down at night. Back of the head and feels like blood is rushing into it all the time. Makes it hard to sleep so I know have to sleep sitting up or I will wake with massive pain in back of head and whatever side of head I am laying on. During the day it is more pressure that is ever present same with the body pains. Been to the ER and they did a ct brain scan and said everything looked fine, neurologist said it was migraines but thought it was strange that it doesn't go away so he ordered a mri that I'm waiting for. My doctor says its just stress but everyday it seems I'm experiencing more issues. Starting to wonder if it's brain cancer or lung cancer since this all started with pain under right ribs and under shoulder blade.the headaches started about 5 weeks ago. Any advice would be appreciated cause I'm scared and am the only parent in my kids lives at the moment. Typed this
    On my phone so sorry about that

    I'm really sorry to hear you are going through all of this. I started to get upper back pain, neck pain and earaches. And I noticed that my bite was off. I went through so many doctors. I asked my dentist to order and MRI because I suspected TMJ. I have a stretched ligament that cause pain in my back, neck, ear and pressure behind my right eye. I'm now seeing a dentist that specializes in TMJ and will be working with him to stabilize my bite. That's great that you are getting an MRI. The radiologist and your doctor will be able to see everything in your body. Hope every goes well. You and your little ones are in my prayers.

    I also have three kids and pray every night I get better for them.

    Thank you. Feeling lost at the moment. Every doctor, specialist, whatever just keeps saying I'm to young for anything serious (37 years) and brushes it off as stress. My divorce was stress, this is pain. Got a ct chest scan tomorrow that I'm paying for out of pocket so hope that figures something out. Insurance won't pay cause I'm also to young for that test ( must be 55 and smoked 30 years). Best wishes to you

    Hello, So sorry to hear what you are going thru. All I can offer is to persevere and don't stop seeking consultation from other doctors, you will eventually find one that 'cares'. It took me a year before I found the right one, but a year of pain I went thru.

    My prayers for you and family,

    Bob
