Customer Question

I have quite severe head pain down the right hand side when I bend over but feel nothing when upright. Does this indicate anything?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

when you bend over, you can have a lot of blood rush to your head and this can often cause head pain

Dr. David :

this is not an indicator of disease if you don't feel headaches or have neurological symptoms at other times.

JACUSTOMER-ommc98a6- :

Ok, so nothing to worry about?

Dr. David :

no, I would not stress about this.

Dr. David :

sometimes increasing how much you exercise and making sure you drink enough fluids can help your circulation

JACUSTOMER-ommc98a6- :

Why would the pain be localised to one side?

Dr. David :

so this doesn't happen when you bend over quickly.

Dr. David :

your blood vessels or your pain receptors might be more sensitive on that one side

Dr. David :

when you bend over.

JACUSTOMER-ommc98a6- :

No I can bend slowly and feel the pain it seems to be because my head is upside down

Dr. David :

yes, when your head is upside down, but will rush to your head quickly.

Dr. David :

not all of our blood vessels are exactly the same one side compared to the other .

JACUSTOMER-ommc98a6- :

OK thank you.
