I woke up , though I had a headache but top of scalp on left side is where the pain is. starts at night & get sharp pain, left ear starts hurting & get nausea. mornings left side nostril stuffed, tearing in left eye but pain still top of scalp. what is it? migraine, sinus headache or something worse? Can't see my doc. until next wk, she's on vacation. Any suggestions?
If you just today woke up with it I wouldn't worry. Worrying has no redeeming value except to make yourself feel worse.
Weird things happen. It could be a migraine or the other things you mentioned but it could be a virus.
If you devote your thoughts to negative ones, it prevents the positive healing from happening. I hope that makes sense... Lol.
You did the right thing by making the soonest doctor's appointment. Hopefully, tomorrow it will be gone. There is nothing you can do that you haven't done.
Do something today that will keep your mind off of it. Be with people who make you laugh!
Btw... I was just put on Imitrex for migraines and it was my miracle drug. You may want to read about it and talk with your doctor.
Feel better and please don't think about it.
There was a phrase I remember that I found helpful in these situations:
Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you !
I would go to the emergency room, just in case. Or, if you know of another
doctor, if your doctor is on vacation she must have someone on call - get
an appt. with them. If you can't get an appt. then definitely go to the E..R.
They will help you if you need it, if not, then you will have seen a doctor
and they will have helped you.
Don't despair, but do be cautious - If it were me I'd go to the E.R.
Good luck and God bless.
TV10; Really if this just started; You could treat the symptoms until you get into seeing your doctor or one of her partners. When it pops up this quick, It could be a tooth,to sinus or ear etc. But without them checking you out there is no way to really tell but if you start to get any drainage from the ear nose etc you should get into the E.R. IF You can't see your doctor. And you could talk to your Pharmacist and see what you could take to relieve the pain and discomfort. Good luck and it sure would not hurt to put a warm pack or hot washcloth in that area and see if that gives you any relief.
Good luck to you
