Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
had an eeg test today and he said it seems i have some nerve damage in my lower back and neck that is causing my discomfort in my left arm and leg... and wants an mri .. Is nerve damage reversable? will this get worse over time? also, i have an increase in headaches in the past couple weeks.. i hardly get headaches but lately they are everyday.. they come and go and vary.. sometimes its jsut an overall pressure, sometimes when i lean forward i will get a headache ontop of my head and forehead that is like achey.. also, if you push the top of my head it can start a headache for a short time.. i told the neuro this but he didn't make a mention of the headaches and during the test he pushed down on my head at our intital visit and i got dizzy for a few seconds.. he also didn't say anything about that but i am curious to know if that means anything... opinions appreciated..
my mri is scheduled for monday... it has been off and on for months now... i am hypothyroid and take synthroid.. the headaches have been for the past 2 or 3 weeks off and on... i also have muscle pain and tightness in my neck left shoulder and back constantly.... i am a mother of 3 w my youngest being 16 mo old which i currently am still bf..
it says nuerologist but when i click to view your profile it says opthomologist..
relist this question please... respnse taking too long
he has not said anything about my headaches, he seems to be paying attention to my arm leg and neck problem... the mri is for the neck and back suspected nerve damage...
i also notice that if i move my eyes side to side it can start a headache.. which i hv an apt for an eye dr this fri ...
i have a headache now that has lasted all day it is achey and sometiems produced quick pain that make me squint then it goes away.. and if i touch the top of my head w pressure it makes the headache worse.. i also woke up w a sore tight neck from how i was sleeping and thought maybe the headache today was from this.. curious to know why i am getting frequent headaches ... if it can be from my neck problem
