What can cause right side head and neck pain?

Asked by shelfields (1points) June 1st, 2009

I have been getting these head aches on the right side of my head and neck (from about my ear down ) I noticed that they seem to come pretty quickly normally after strain ( like one time I was trying to open a jar, bending over to long ). Yesterday again with no warning I got the worst headache ever on the right side and in the neck I took Excedrin Migraine like normal however it didnt work as fast and when it did it didnt take the pain completely away. I woke up today and I have the neck pain , mild head ache and My body aches (upper legs , hip area, back, upper arms,) and nausea. Could this just be the flu?

You need to get checked out. It might be nothing important, or it could be very dangerous. Any increase in head pain after exertion is risky – it could be an aneurysm. They are VERY dangerous. Particularly if you are hypertensive (high blood pressure) or diabetic.

There is no way to tell based on your description alone. If you’ve been having persistent, intermittent headaches that are severe, you absolutely need an evaluation by a doctor. The syndrome you describe could be anything from a muscle strain, to migraine (or other forms of headache), to an aneurysm (as has been mentioned above), to a tumor, to nothing at all. Please seek medical attention as soon as possible.
