Forum Name: Headaches

Question: chronic headpains and unequal pupils

 Qu4lity - Mon Sep 19, 2005 4:30 pm

Hi, hope you can help me and shed a littel light on things, for over 5 months now i have had headaches varying in severity. They started one say with a sharb stabbing pain in the back of my head, i went dizzy and light headed, since i have had chronic head pains, some times stabbing some times constricting some times just numb sometimes i feel twitches on my head.
With this i have also noticed my eyes redden some times, like quite bloodshot, but also i have unequil pupils, my right side is bigger than the left, don't think this is all the time.
i have had bloodtests - clear a ct clear and and mri that was clear but blurred?? don't fully understand that. iv tried councelling sleeping more and less, changing diets, doing nothing all day having busy days opticians every thing.
please give me some ideas as to what could be causing my problems or how to stop them. By the way im a 19year old male with no real head injurys
Also wake up often in the morning with pins and neddles in my arm/s sometimes the hea pains are not present on waking or for maybe an hour after. :(

Hey Q,

Any resolution to your condition. i have had a similar thing crop up quite recently. The uneven pupils have just been noticed but looking at pics goes back several years. The head pain is new though, associated with sinusitis.

Any info would be great.
