Ok I've recently been getting annoyed with this headache. I go to bed with it and wake up with it and go through my entire day with it.
Here is some information about me then I will describe the headache better
Work on my feet anywhere from 8-10 hours a day
Eat one meal a day, usually after work, only time I have to eat
After work I spend a lot of my time in front of a computer
I don't really deal with much stress except the occasional stress from work
I like to drink beer, whiskey, and wine (haven't since the headache started)
I smoke cigarettes anywhere from half a pack to a whole pack a day, depending on the day
I also smoke marijuana at a minimum of 1 joint a day
I don't have an actual sleeping pattern, anywhere from 6-12 hours a night, depending on what I have planned the next day or if my insomnia (don't know if it's really insomnia) or my lack of ability to sleep kicks in.
anything else you might need to know I can tell you if you ask
The pain of the headache is usually on one side, and is fine until I bend over, walk up a set of stairs, anything that gets the blood flowing I guess. And when it does it starts throbbing, the pain is usually mostly behind the eye, and it has been on both the left and the right side, so there is no specific side.
This is my first headache in over a year and this is by far the longest I have ever had one, it's been annoying me since the beginning of July and it is now the 17th. I have just recently started taking advil for the pain but it doesn't seem to do much for it. There are times where I think the headache is gone but then I cough or sneeze or bend down to pick something up. I work near fluorescent lights all day but they don't seem to really make the headache worse, but when I go outside at break and the sun is shining bright then it starts hurting really bad. Noise does not seem to have any affect on it either as far as I can tell.
Everything I listed earlier about myself has been the same for the past 8-10 years or so.
I am typing here to see what kind of suggestions I get. I have not seen a doctor yet as I just received my health insurance and have not found a doctor near by yet.
Thanks for any help I get, and if you need to know more about it let me know I will try my best at describing it.
Might you have a sinus infection? They can cause the headaches that you seem to be having. Other than that I am stumped. Here is a link that can help you figure out what kind of headache you may have. Remember that it does not substitute the advice of a doctor. Id go to your doctor as soon as you can, just to get checked out.
I experienced the same thing, underneath the right eye mainly. I had headaches for a very long time. Then they became really bad. Please, find a physican and ask them for CAT scan, Mri and MRA....this would rule out an aneurysm. Thats what mine ended up being. It ruptured, but was clipped before killing me off. Explain to this physican your concerns. A neurologist would be best. Find one soon......this could very well be only migraines, but at least you can rest assured its not something that could kill you! Hope this has helped!
today I had some relief early on in the day from the headache was just a slight headache feeling, but it came back later on. But I woke up with a sore neck, I'm thinking it's just from sleeping on it funny.
