i've been to the doctors 3 times. i've have a constant headache for 10 days with pain behind my eyes and random pain on the right-side-back of my head with a faint ache under my right jaw. the doctor just said it's wax in my ears and irrogated them. however that was done yesterday but i woke up today with still the exact same headache.
they tested my eyes my blood pressure etc..but all clear! Whats wrong with me?? I have no other symptoms whatsoever i'm perfectly well otherwise! im always so well and this is worrying the fact i had it so long and it is not lifting...any intelligent feedback appreciated. thanks

Headache
Ok I just googled consistant headache for 10 days because this is how long I have had mine and it is exactly like yours I have no other symptoms, I am just in a lot of pain. I am going back to the doctor tomorrow because I went last week and she said it was a sinus infection but I have been taking antibiotics for 7 days and its still just as painful as when I went.

well i went back to the doctors cause still 3 weeks later i have the same headache and dull pain coming and going in the back of my head. im gona have blood tests and a neck xray and see a neurologist. im wondering though should i be having a brain scan. and i have to wait for the xray and wait 7 weeks for the neurologist...i mean the wait makes me nervous in case its serious ...it should be investigated immediately in my opinion not wait 7 weeks. its all most odd i have no other symptoms at all ...it just suddenly arrived and has not gone away. i wasnt offered antibiotics either only headache tablets. thanks for wishing u could help me! well let me know how it goes tomoro...ask to be referred to a neurologist and get tests like me..goodluck! take care.

eye pain headaches
I've been encountering the same pain. It went away on its own for a little while, but now it's back. Does anyone wear contacts? I've been told by my Doctor to see an Optometrist. The Optometrist told me it is due to pressure build up in my eyes, and not enough oxygen getting to my blood cells in the eyes.

Hope this helps. And hope you feel better! Smile

ok
well im still having headaches now 11 weeks. im now being referred to a neurologist. my eyes went bloodshot aswel but that might be conjunctivitis. well if it was serious im told i would be fainting and dizzy and vomiting...i think it might be due to my braces or teeth clenching possibly. i might go get dental xrays. anyhow im glad im being referred but the silly woman dcctor should hav referred me weeks ago. i think stress might be part of it aswel and maybe some neck tension not sitting correctly at the pc and maybe working on the pc the bright light etc..good luck with your headaches its so awful isnt it having constant pain nonstop and medication does not help at all!

I am having the same exact problem, although, I've been having headaches for some while now, sometimes even migraines.. and from time to time, I even suffer dizziness. I have no idea what's wrong with me. I haven't tried going to the doctors because something like this doesn't seem serious.

I was having headaches and dizziness, and it was due to "mild dehydration". When fixing a computer, we eliminate everything that could be the problem until we narrow it down to a single source. Try drinking more water and see if that's the cause there?

(It was a pain to find a name not taken, by the way...)

I have been having similar headaches for years, in my right eye and and down the RHS of my face. I saw a chiropractor in Nov. 08 and discovered that my left arm was slightly out of its socket and this affected all the muscles around the back of my neck and also the muscles down my left arm. There are many knots and lumps in the muscles. The headaches have nearly stopped now and I feel like I have a new lease of life. Maybe you could try an assessment by a chiropractor.

I've had similar headaches to ElvaX. Tension that starts behind the eyes and then the back of the head and then all over. I've had them for a month. They turn into "cluster-like" headaches if they go on for several days straight. They started after my wife and her second surgery this summer so I thought it was related to stress. I had LASIK surgery a year and a half ago and my astigmatism is back. I have a new glasses now and I'll see if that works. My doctors didn't take any chances. They gave my a CT scan, blood tests, and prescribe a bunch of meds (Naproxen, Zomig, Vicodin, etc.). The only that has worked for my is Percocet. I see the Neurologist tomorrow. I'm going to get an MRA/MRI to be sure it's not a catagory 2 type headache. However, I believe it could be an eye/not enough sleep issue--I hope. I feel for all of you. This is not fun! Buy the way, I'm in my early 40's and in pretty good shape with no medical issues. Also, good family history with none of these issues.

Head Aches Accompanied By Dizziness
For those who believe headaches accompanied by dizziness are nothing to worry about, beware. My Mother experienced similar circumstances several years ago, and ignored the symptoms. She's always avoided the Doctor's Office like the Plague. Very SAD, because as a Certified Nursing Assistant I knew better, but couldn't tell her anything. Now, at age 83 after suffering several strokes, she is residing in a Nursing Home. She can no longer walk, control bowel or bladder function (in diapers) and hurts all of the time. If early intervention had been sought several years ago, possibly some life style changes could have prevented (headache) complications. My Mother still knows all of her children by name, and loves her family very much, but most time must kick back and watch the world go by since her Motor Coordination no longer exists.

well rdhdtwo u dont state what her initial headaches and dizziness was due to and what would have resolved the issue. so thats not helpful only worrying wat u wrote.
i have been to a&e ive been to drs ive been to neurologist and now im insisting on a headache ache clinic. so far no one can say why im getting headaches. the neurologist said at the end of her silly report...i have assured her that there is no clear cause for her headaches...erm excuse how can the fact u havnt got a clue why im getting headaches be reassuring! andddd they refused me an mri scan as i have no side effects and my heart blood pressure hearing etc etc is fine..but still my headaches persist randomly...tell us what medical help should your mother have recieved pls? and i am sorry to hear of her decline.

The first incident of headache, dizziness, and slurred speech for her occurred 6 years ago, and she should have been rushed to an emergency center since time is of the essence when a stroke is suspected. My brother was with her at the time and he also knew she needed to be seen immediately in order to attempt and avoid permanent stroke affects ie. paralysis, blindness, motor impairment, loss of speech and more, but she declined medical intervention. Not everyone experiences the same symptoms, however, and I'm just trying to encourage anyone with a family history ( which does exist in our case ) or other possible high risk factors including but not exempt to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, phlebitis, diabetes to get checked for stroke. In retrospect, possibly if our Mother had taken an aspirin as a "quick fix" in order to thin her blood, she still would have needed to be seen quickly at E.R. but professional's may possibly have intervened in order to avoid any long-term or permanent affects.

ok thank you that's very constructive advice to consider and to be aware of. in my case my headache was not taken seriously by any professionals i saw, even though i had thee most excruciating headache for 12 weeks nonstop which migrated all over my head & at one point, i had a pulsating manic pain inside the center of my head. They had no idea why i was getting headaches. i personally think its cause i have braces which make me clench my jaw unknowingly or maybe tension headaches...they come and go now...seems worse if im stressed..and they can be worse in the mornings. i even had my gas boiler checked!
im waiting to get advice from a headache clinic to be on the safe side... they wont scan me so really who can tell what's the cause! but at least i'm aware of the symptoms which are signs of serious strokes etc...thanx once again.

I, personally, do not wear braces, but do grind teeth/clench jaw especially when stressed out. I bought a "football" guard from Walmart, boiled, bit, and formed it to fit upper teeth. I wear it during sleep only, and it protects teeth and dental work from damage. I experienced more tension headaches prior to using the guard, and it is so affordable compared to having a dentist mold one for boo-coo bucks. Hope you can get to the root of the matter...probably the braces are the "culprit", but I just don't like to "assume" anything. Try and get some relief so your life becomes more comfortable.

Contacts can cause the 'behind the eyes' pain. I use them and get that feeling whenever i use the contacts for extended periods such as a whole day or even sleeping in the disposable lenses. Try to avoid doing this. I stopped wearing contacts on weekends when i am indoors. Oiling my hair once or twice a week helped too. Often a panadol and a good night's sleep will help a lot.
Good Luck
