For the last 2 months I've experienced severe headache pain on the left side of my head, but ONLY when I move my head (either up/down or side/side). Also, I have experienced an intermittent (several hours a day) roaring/ringing sound in my ears, accompanied with mild dizziness.
The headache is 24/7, and not alleviated by ibuprofen or aspirin. Whenever I mildly shake my head, the pain is there. Dull, pressure pain. And then with the ears, it's a loud, dull roaring sound.. not constant, but daily. The dizziness is not acute, but there with the ear ringing.
I have an appointment w/ the Dr, but what do these symptoms suggest?
I did have Thyroid cancer in 2006, so I am -- shall we say -- quite curious about what's going on.View Thread
