Ive had a lump on the left side back of my head between the occipital and parital for about 3 months now. the other day i got a severe i wanna say a pressure feeling headache that only got worse all day then affecting my eye sight as it wasnt blurry more like fuzzy. Feeling real disoriented and my limbs were feeling numb like. well i got home to find out from my jaw line across my temporal all the way to the back side of my head to below my eye on the left side was swollen pretty bad. it went down after an hour or so.. i need to know what it could be and what i need to do about this. im still having head aches just about all day off and on.

You should go to the doctor ASAP. If you have a lump over your occiptal nerve it could actually be compressing it and causing your headaches. This is what was wronge with me before I was treated for occipital neuralgia. I suggest you contact your doctor. If you would like for me to send you any info in regards to what I had done I would be more than happy too. email me at Hope this helps and Good Luck. Feel better
