Question: Can someone help me?

 lioness - Sat Oct 23, 2004 11:16 pm

Hi --

I'm here hoping that someone can tell me what's wrong with me. I don't particularly want to go to an ER, and I don't have medical insurance.

I'm having some odd, severe, head pains. Whenever I bend down, squat down, sit down, etc and then get back up, I get a very intense and sharp pain in my left temple only. As soon as my position is stabalized, the pain subsides. And it only hurts when I'm rising from a lowered position. But it's extremely painful and has now been going on for 10 hours. Does anyone have any idea what this could be??

User avatar Hi!

I cannot formulate any patricular diagnosis for the condition you describe. It would be useful if you could get your blood pressure examined. Tylenol could be tried for temporary relief, and if that fails or the BP is high, you should get to your doctor.
