I'm 17 years old, and I have had a constant headache for 3.5 years now. I live with a constant pain level of about a 5-6. The pain spikes randomly to a 10 and I pass out. In the past month this has been happening on a weekly basis. The pain starts on the right side, and then spreads to the rest of my head. It feels like there are bombs going off in the side of my head. The only warning I get before I pass out is a sudden flash of eye-watering pain, and next thing I know I'm waking up on the floor. I have had an MRI that showed nothing. I'm going back to the neurologist on April 8th. At that point they will probably order more tests. Truth is they have no clue what is going on. Any ideas would be helpful.
You are, probably, experiencing a type of migraine headache.
Migraine headache is usually a one side headache, but, it can spread over the whole head, progressively intensifying.
Eye pain can be an aura symptom, and loss of consciousness, is a symptom of two rare types of migraine, known as hemiplegic migraine and basilar migraine.
Also, this case could be a seizure attack.
Headaches are common among seizures sufferers, especially, migraine ones.
With additional tests, a knowledgeable neurologist can give a correct diagnosis.
