I’m Having a Dull Pressure on Back of Head

05/31/2010

Question:

For about two days now i am getting this dull almost like pressure on the back lower left of my head. about an inch maybe inch and a half from my neck. I also have a pain in my left ear. I am wondering if this is something i should get looked at. the pressure isn`t constant but it happens about 5 6 times a day.

Answer:

This question has been forwarded by Wellness Center: Pain in this location is usually musculoskeletal.  Try applying heat, but if it persists, I would see your doctor.
