I have a headache that seems to be sudden onset and then in maybe a bit of time it is suddenly gone - I will just notice - oh its gone.
I thought it was due to bending my neck to look down and to the left at my ipad sitting on the shelf of my treadmill. I was doing this for maybe 30-45 min a day for a few weeks. However, I have not done it in a week and still get these pop-up headaches.
I have a history of sinus issues, but this is the back of my head - can you even have a sinus related headache that hits there?
It's been going on maybe a month or a month and a half. I don't seem to be super tired, have any other issues such as blurred vision or illness.
Over the last year or so I occasionally have gotten really dizzy and felt like I was going to pass out, but thats been maybe twice. I have been on a few new medications this year so that is likely the cause of that.
I went to the doctor recently and they basically said take advil or tylenol. But now its a month later and I still have the issue. Should I go back? Or wait another month.
I do spend most of my day looking at a computer screen, for what its worth. I am probably also under increasing stress.
