Question: Hi well i am having these migraine on the right side of my head. They seem to get worse by pain a little bit and this has started during last week or something. I am 15 and the weird thing i keep noticing is that i keep forgetting so many things especially the little things because say i needed to go to a appointment or get something from my room i totally forget like 2 minutes later what i was going to do and i realy don't remember ever again unless i think i need to go get it again. Right now i feel really nauseas and since i go to school i am usually the girl in the class that answers alot of questions and like to presentations but my speech has been really bad these days. i speak fluent english obviously but when i speak i have some trouble speaking for something reason?! O_o?? I take advil to relieve my headaches and migrains but it does not work for some reason and i am not eatting as much as i used to. Is there something wrong with me? If you want more details just ask. when i look at the light or something my head starts to hurt really bad lol and then i kind of zone out lol

A lot of things can cause headaches. Some are very serious. You need to go to a doctor and have them check for the serious things first. You need to write down what you are eating, when you are getting the headaches and any thing that may cause the headaches (stress, homework, reading) This may help the doctor in figuring out what to do for you. This is not a question that can be answered here, but you should get blood tests, and imaging (MRI, CAT scan or SpectScan) and possibly EMGs to determine what the next step would be.

Your focusing on all the negatives in your life what about the positives. How about you take slow steps to be the person and do the things you want to do. So for example if you want to lose a little weight how about walking around the block and make smaller steps every week or few days and eventually youll reach your goal. Be more positive about yourself and take small steps to reach your goal. Hope the best for you.

I'm not a doctor, and have no idea what is specifically wrong, but I have had some strange neurological problems in the past myself, and this sounds pretty serious to me. I would very strongly encourage you to see a doctor as soon as you can, and to tell your parents what's been going on. It might help to try to write down for a few days what's happened, so that the doctor could have a better idea what the problem and its severity might be. At a guess, it sounds like some kind of neurological issue, but the cause of that could be a lot of things, and a neurologist should be equipped to figure out the problem, though it may be hit or miss for a while. The good news is that there are a lot of other possibilities out there than you having a brain tumor or something like that. It's very possible that either you're having some bizarre reaction to some substance (maybe a specific food or drug) that you could stop coming into contact with if you knew what it was, or that there is a medication out there that could help you with the scary symptoms you've been dealing with. PLEASE tell your parents and go see a doctor before you drive yourself nuts worrying about this! Oh, and the drug the other person mentioned for migraines is actually propranolol--I used to take it too, and it did help me quite a bit.

That is definetly migraines. The pain can cause short term memory loss. I have been diagnosed with frequent migraines. Make an appointment with your doctor. I take a migraine preventive medicine..(parapanol- sorry, don't feel like getting up to check the spelling) and it has changed my life. It is proven to prevent the headaches 80-85% of the time! I also have Imitrex for when the migraine is onsetting, but the preventive medicine works so well that I haven't had to take the Imitrex!! Go to your doc it will change your life.

You need to have mom and dad take you to the doctor right away and have X-rays or even an MRI (neither hurt-so don't worry). Better yet, they should take you to the emergency room. If you are having headaches that are causing you to forget things, garbles your speech and causes you nausea, there is something more than just a headache going on. Go to the hospital right away.

This definitly sounds like a problem you need to go see the doctor about. It could be a serouis problem that can only be diagnosed by a doctor and even if it is not a serouis problem their a specialists that can perscribe you medicine for your migraines that will help. Go to http://nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000709.htm#symptoms for more information. Hope you feel better.

Goddard Originally Answered: What is this sound in my head?
When everything is silent and still we all have some sounds in our ears. Have you ever held a seashell to your ear 'to hear the sea'? It 'doesn't seem to work' when you are in a car or walking is because external noises are masking the sound. A loud sound in the ear is called tinnitus and is often continuous. From the link... "The sound perceived may range from a quiet background noise to one that can be heard even over loud external sounds. The term "tinnitus" usually refers to more severe cases. Heller and Bergman (1953) conducted a study of 100 tinnitus-free university students placed in an anechoic chamber, and found 93% reported hearing a buzzing, pulsing or whistling sound."
