Customer Question
Kinda long story but had...
Kinda long story but had a strained back last week that led me to go to the chiropractor with no relief then to a md for a steroid shot and muscle relaxor pills. Two days later the back pain was gone but started having a mild headache. I never have headaches.. Ever! After no amount of ibuprohin oe excedrine would help went bk to the chiro thinking when he aligned my back it thru my neck off. He readjusted and sd if not better in a few days to go bk to md. No relief so bk to md who gave me another shot and stronger meds for pain but still no relief.. She said my ears are clear so no sign of inner ear infection. The pressure travels and is constant. Usually rating between a 6-7 pain level causing nausia. I have the hot/ cold flashes and found laying down helps and pressure goes to only one area. It feels like i have blood between my skull and skin that floats around causing pain wherever it goes. Bumps while riding in a car are the worst.. Im at a loss.. Any suggestions?

Okay, this may be due to a sinus infection or it could be meningitis, you need to go back to your doctor or an urgent care center/ ER. You may require antibiotic treatment as soon as possible

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
