    Question Headaches and knots on the back of the neck??

    I was just wondering if anyone else gets headaches alot. Is this part of the symptoms of PCOS. Sometimes when I get a headache it will get real bad and I will feel nausas and be sensitive to light and a knot will form on the back of my neck. Then when the knot starts to go backk down I will get another bad headache. I have had the knots check out and they say it is an oil gland. They can take it out but it will leave a big indention in my neck. I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem with the headaches and the knots or just either one of them.

    I have muscle spasms in my neck which cause alot of my headaches Like yesterday I sneezed and blew my nose so much it gave me the sensitive to light nauseus dont move too quick headache...

    I just take some migraine over the counter meds and hope for the best, of course with a frozen gel back and wet cloth

    I have never heard of an oil gland thats interesting....its too bad it causes your headaches though

    Feel better,
    Amy

    Hey Courtney,
    I get really bad headaches as well, I also get that knot in the back of my head and it hurts sooo bad. I've never gotten it check out though. Have you ever tried Excedrin Tension Headache? That really helps me when I first start feeling that knot. Its the only thing that helped me really help me. Might be worth a try.

    I get brutal headaches as well, no knot that I know of though. i do get very tight neck muscles. Sometimes a couple of excedrin and a nap is the only thing that will help me...

    Thanks everyone~
    Dazlebell Excedrin works wonders for the Headaches. Does any of this have any association with PCOS?

    Courtney - I get them all the time. They are tension headaches caused by stress for me. My neck muscles tighten up and it carries all the way up to my temples. My dr gave me muscle relaxers and told me to chill out basically. When I quit my super stressful job the headaches went away completely. I am not sure if it relates to pcos but when your hormones are whacked out I think it could probably do all kinds of damage. Have you googled it? Sorry I can't be more help to you.

    Thats really informative. I am always stressed out about my job. I hate it. Fortunatly I am going to be graduating pretty soon and I can quit this job and go to a job that I love.
