Customer Question
I have a ping...

I have a ping of a pain on the back of my skull could it be an aneurysm?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Pain is intermittent it started when exercising.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a mitral valve replacement in Jan. 2017 When I went to dr. last week my bP was 155/85 any correlation between that and pain?

Thank you for the input.

Sorry for late answering as there was a problem with connection.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Pings or pain in the back of skull can occur from a few probable factors.
It can be a symptom of high blood pressure.
Your blood pressure is higher than normal.
That can be a factor.
It can occur from spine or joint of the neck, muscle spasm.
Aneurysm causes pain when there is leaking or it is causing pressure effect.
It is usually associated with intense pain, nausea, vomiting,stiffness of neck etc.
Your symptoms do not sound like aneurysm.
It can also occur from tension state.
Please avoid anxiety, stress if you have.
If the pain is too much, analgesics like tylenol can be taken.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

Wish you healthy life.

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.
