CONSTANT LOW FREQUENCY THROBBING
I have the same headaches, a low dull throbbing pain that seem to also affect my right eye and that can be easily forgotten if i focus on something else....if i flash my head from left to right a few times it seem to soothe it kind of like it got an internal massage. I think I may have a slow developing brain tumor. I will post my findings when I get it checked out. I got hit in the head really hard a few years back and it seems to be on that side of my head. I was told tumors can develop from a hard blow to the head.

I have this as well.
I am the same age, I have been having headaches daily for a long period of time and am very disorient. I have other things as well like lack of physical energy and lack of ability to concentrate. I know for sure one factor for me is being nutrient deficient. you should get a blood test and check your nutrient levels. possibly, and get a physical from your doctor and maybe visit a chiropractor.

I am 15 as well, and I have chronic daily headaches. There are MANY causes to headaches, and it is not always because of a brain tumor. There are tension headaches, cluster headaches, migraines, stress headaches..... the list keeps going on. What I would suggest to you is to look for "triggers", so things that trigger your headache or make it worse. Look at what you're eating, smells, light, sound. You could have an allergy to something that bring on your headaches.
Another thing to try is relaxation therapy. Try going for massages,you may have muscle tension that is causing yuor headaches.
Do not worry about having a brain tumor, if you did there are MANY other symptoms that go along with it other than a headache. Even if you did have some kind of growth, it may not be causing your headaches. It really depends on the location and size of a growth to determine wether or not it causes pain.
I hope that helps!

I highly disagree with what u wrote. How are these people Suppse to go for massages if they can't afford to get MRI tests done? And sometimes an everlasting headache IS the ONLY symptom of brain cancer.

Reference: my dad had headaches for years and one day dropped at work, had a seizure. Turns out he had brain cancer. Hmm who woulda known!

...Maybe because you can get a massage for $20-$30 whereas an MRI without insurance can cost, at the very least, hundreds of dollars.

There's no need for you to be condescending. They're just trying to offer cheaper alternatives to people in pain.

I''m 25, and although am able to carry on with my day to day living, I have had what most of you have mentioned for a number of years. I''ve visited doctors, and because I can''t quite explain what it is I feel I don''t seem to get the answer I expect. I find my memory is also pretty bad, perhaps just a coincidence?

At this point, it's time to demand answers. Get CAT scans and MRI's what ever is necessary. If you don't have proper coverage find free clinics that will work with you. You may also need to change your diet. Get rid of all sugars and starches to start with, eat more lightly steamed vegis and less meat especially red and pork. Try either low sodium or none at all and drink nothing, but water. Try it for a week or two and see if you notice a difference. Let me know. Also try to eliminate any stress factors in your life. God speed

daily headaches
I'm 18 and have been diagnosed with chronic daily headaches. I take daily medication for this as well as medication for my migraines, which I get a few times a week. Though my migraines may seem rare, I've had these daily headaches for over a year now. They last from when I wake up to the time I go to sleep. I've been to two neurologists and have tried 4 different daily headache medication as well as 3 different migraine preventatives. My doctor's believe it's due to lack of exercise (though I only weigh 140 at 5' 10'') and results from my triggers, which consist of pork, msg, light, strong smells, and sun exposure. Though I try extremely hard to avoid all these triggers and keep up with my meds, anyone think it could be anything else?
I've had 2 MRI's so thankfully, I've ruled out a brain tumor.

Thanks!
It's comforting knowing I'm not the only one with Dr. House symptoms.

Headaches
I am 13 years old and i have a headache for everyday this week!
I don't know how long it will continue for, but its driving me nuts! The only medicine that helped me is iboprofen, I can't spell by the way. But it sounds like that. It also hurts when i bend down to get something.
I think I may go see a doctor because i don't want it to continue

If it's hurting when you bend down and/or you are hearing a popping sound, definitely consider a sinus infection or allergies, depending on where you live.

The chance of it being a brain tumor is so small, it is almost unfathomable, so don't let the people who are writing about brain tumors scare you.

At your young ages, 13-18, it could have to do with hormones. The same thing happened to me around those teenage years where I would get crazy uncontrollable headaches. I had to medicate with tylenol or ibuprofen in order to control them, but they eventually went away.

So, don't worry, but get yourself to the doctor for some antibiotics if it is a sinus infection, some allergy meds for allergies, or just sit in a warm bath with a warm washcloth over your eyes. You'll feel better in no time!

Headaches
I am 41 and have been getting headaches since I was a child. I have a headache 50 percent of my waking hours. It's impossible to not have depression when I am in pain so much of the time. I've had 2-3 cat scans revealing no tumors and there simply is no answer yet. Vicodin helps sometimes, but the relief is always short-lived. Accupunture hasn't helped so far. I've tried just about every drug and I my latest last-hope efforts are using positive thoughts and energy. I truly hope you find an answer.

Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Headaches that come early in morning along with nausea and loss of movement of arms can be either due to pinched cervical spinal nerves or due to benign intracranial hypertension. If it is due to pinched nerve a chiropractor can help you out until you consult a neurologist for MRI. If it is due to BIH, then a spinal tap will be required for diagnosis and treatment.

Poor sleep patterns like sleep apnea, restless sleep can trigger a headache in the mornings. It is not possible to treat a headache without finding the cause. Try a walk in clinic if you can. Hope this helps. Take care!
