about 2 weeks ago i started getting these pains in my head everytime i cough.i do have coughing fits from time to time because i am a smoker but the pain starts above my right eye,over the top right side of the head and down to the back side of the head about 1 inch from the ear. when i get to coughing i hold the top of my head where the pain is coming from because it feels like my skull will split open. after the coughing is over with the pain will stay around for about 5 to 15 minutes,especially above the right eye.i am on disability and i am afraid to go to the DR. for fear they will not see as i already owe money to the hospital. so if you could help it would be great.
