How long are you having the symptoms?

When have you consulted doctor last?

Do you take any other medicine?

Did you have any test?

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

hi.. Ive been having the headache for the last couple of days...I really didn't get achy until I sat in my recliner and went to get up my arms and legs feel sore, I had a yearly checkup with my doctor last week nd she did routine blood work, no results yet. I believe she was gonna check to see if I may have had shingles. I had told her about some tingling and numbness in my back area sometimes painful, but none of those symptoms now just tingling and numbness regular medication needed just over the counter pain meds...
I've been waking up with a pretty bad lower back pain for the last 3-4 days but it eases once I'm able to get moving

Thank you for the information,

Taste of blood in the throat can come from a few factors.

If you have sinusitis & bleeding in the nasal cavities, it can come down as post nasal drip in the throat.

Sinusitis can cause bad headache.

Tingling sensation may not be related to it.

I would advise to take a repeat examination by doctor.

You can have a scan of the sinuses.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
