r u there

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Sorry for the delay--and where does your head hurt exactly?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

back of the head.and the back is mostly heavy

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
OK--no, you aren't going to die but you should have a doctor look at this. Sounds like you sprained your neck and you're getting tension headaches from the muscle spasms. This doesn't sound anything like a bleed in the brain so please don't worry about that.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

u made me worry a bit . let me clarify i hit my head today but i have been having these headaches for anweek on and off they r peretty much ususall dull pain what scard me is hitting

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Sorry but that wasn't clear from what you first said on this page. These headaches--before this week headaches weren't a problem for you?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

no

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
And except for the headaches, no problem with vision or balance?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

i am sorry i had to oeave. no vision problems or balance. its just dull pain in the back top and sometimes sides

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Sorry--I was off. 95% of headaches are painful but not serious. You really don't describe headaches from either a brain tumor or a leaking aneurysm but these do sound like tension headaches from neck muscle spasm. Have a doctor look at you but I really wouldn't worry about this
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

woke up today with a headache again, this time it was pulsating on the side too. they r not different just make me scarry , and usually when i get them my nose is runny to. but when i move the neck it bothering me too.just allways scared of sneurusm

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
As you always are with headaches--this isn't acting at all like an aneurysm and if it were you would have known by now--the headache would have become totally unbearable and you would have been in the ER long before now. Just let the aneurysm thing go and let's have a rating
