I'm a bit worried be because I feel so strange, and hate having time off as I'm a teacher and it stresses me out! I have been a bit low and stressed recently and then started with a really stiff neck at the weekend, like id slept funny. But then I started feeling all spaced out and tearful followed by headaches that painkillers didn't touch! Today I have all the symptoms again along with fuzzy ears. I'm wondering if its a migraine or what... The shooting pains in my head I've had one or two of and are sharp. Just feel worried its something more serious!

I had a migraine once, about half way through my first year of teaching! Very scary and thought i was dying. Couldn't lift my head off the pillow without feeling sick and dizzy. You are doing the right thing- get checked then go back to bed and sleep. Good luck. [Hgrin]

Could well be muscle spasms of neck..on way to physio for whiplash and similar symptoms

Apparently a severe migraine or a nasty virus, she did some checks for anything more sinister and didn't seem worried. Got some migraine strength nurofen and gonna try and sleep.
