I am 68 year old retired person. Over all my health is ok and vital organs are functioning satisfactorily. One problem I am facing since last two years is whenever I sleep left side I get pain in the left side of the head. If unknowingly I sleep for hours together the pain migrtaes to left ear or even to other parts in left side. So I need to take pain relieving medicines in such cases. Earlier such cases used to be at larger intervels but now a days it is frequent. It also happens that some times I getup witha head ache(leftside).My BP is under control and is under medication. One doctor suggested consultation with neurologist.But before going to specialist I would get the opinion of a General physician if there is any medicine you can suggest.

Ans: Hello K,
This kind of pain could be related to muscle knots on left side of the neck. It is called as trigger points in the sternocleidomastoid or scalene muscle. If you can first visit a physiotherapist who does techniques like dry needling, cupping, myofascial release it may help you a lot.
We have had patients with similar issues and withing 5-6 sessions they are completely fine now.
Please read about sternocleidomastoid/scalene/trapezius trigger points and you will understand better.
All the best!
