Should I tell my doctor? Meli ❤ 1 child; Don't worry about it, CA, United States 31068 posts

Well I have had headaches for over 4 months straight, every day pretty much all day long. Well anyways I noticed lately when I am cleaning or doing anything where I am active I get this weird pressure in the back of my head that goes down my neck. Not sure if that is part of a migraine or not? Should I be worried about it or no?



ETA: My doctors knows about my headaches & I have seen a neurologist for it, not that they have helped me but yea hahaa.

I would tell them. I have had migraines since I was 7 and those pains just came with it.. I have to get yearly brain scans for it.

I'm in the same boat. Ever since my son was 2 months, it's been constant headaches and pressure. Haven't seen anyone for it yet though.



I often have panic attacks thinking it might be a brain tumour.

You know it is weird because I was diagnosed with migraines since I was younger too but I don't remember having all of the symptoms I am having now with it. You mean the pressure in the back of the head just started happening to you too? Do you get a weird pressure feeling in your nose too? I get that all of the time along with lightheadedness/ feeling like I could pass out. Does that happen to you as well?

You should. I am FINALLY getting a MRI on my brain with & without contrast next Saturday which I have asked them to do for months but they wouldn't which was annoying but yea, I just want to make sure nothing is going on up there.

Oh, absolutely. I want to find out myself, but I'm also a little anxious to.

I understand that, but also if god forbid there is something going on it is better to catch it earlier kwim?

Definitely. Now all I need is the money to get a scan, hah.

I'm under my parent's, but scans are costly.

I am under my moms as well. She has Blue Cross ppo which is pretty good so I don't pay anything for the scan I don't think.

Oh, man, that's awesome. I know we'd definitely be paying something for it if I got one.
