I've been getting a lot of headaches lately. On and off throughout the day. I have gained like 15 lbs in the last 2 months. Is there a doctor in the house? Or someone with a similar experience? Or just a know it all?

I doubt it. But I haven't changed anything in a few years

Could be a lot of things. I used to have headaches almost daily. I cut my hair, had my eyes checked. Finally went to the dr and had an MRI. Nothing and they sent me to a Neurologist. He put me on some meds. After time I figured out they were stress. To this day they are still stress. Although I do get some that I will have for 3 days no matter what. It is right above my left eye.

Are you a coffee drinker? If so have you stopped drinking it?

Do you have allergies or sinus problems? Have your eyes been checked? How about your blood sugar? There are other things that cause headaches but these are some common causes.

I have never had allergies. I am not congested or anything. Just the sharp stabbing headaches and weight gain.
I have contacts and glasses and my eyes are fine. They are sensitive though. But it's not like a headache from not being able to see.

My ears keep getting pressure too. Like from flying but I'm not flying or anything.
And I've never had my blood sugar checked

I just thought maybe the weight of my length could be causing it, mine was middle of my back. I have a friend whos brother was complaining of a headache, a few days later passed away from an emblosim. Not to scare you but that would be on the most extreme side of things. That is actually why we got the MRI done as I was in High School and my mom did freak a little after that!
