Hi I am a 20 year male of 65, recently I have been suffering

Resolved Question:

Hi I am a 20 year male of 6'5, recently I have been suffering with severe hedaches that have been giving me pain above the eyes, I also get pain in just one eye at a time but mostly the left eye. I have in the past been told my a doctor that I had jelly substance found behind my eyes 13 years ago after having an elastic band flicked into my left eye, but haven't had a check up on this by the Hospital since I was around 8, I don't know if this is linked but I am getting concerned about these headaches as they have continued to bother me for almost 2 months now. The headaches are on and off and generally happen roughly 3-4 times a day.

Do you know what could be causing these headaches as I'm growing more and more worried.

Thanks
Brandon

Have you had a neurological exam?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No I haven't had a neurological examination, is there any dangerous symptoms that I should look out for at all with my headaches?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
All new headaches must be evaluated.
So you are overdue, and that is dangerous.

However, increasing danger would be indicated by increasing symptoms, headaches that do not go away, or new symptoms.

Thank you for the advice I really really appreciate it. I have had dizziness and felt sick a few times but not always just sometimes.


 


Thank you very much for the advice.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
You are welcome
My advice is the same; see a doctor now, since this has not been evaluated.
