Hi I am 21 yrs old and for the last couple of days I have been experiencing some really bad headaches on the right side of my head. I have really sharp pains and the worst thing is that my right eye hurts a lot!! I also get a really sharp pain on my eye. My eyes feel very tired almost like if they were very heavey. I’m very worried.

The pain gets worse wheneveri move my head fast, mostly forwards or backwards, or walk or when I lean down. I get this severe shooting pain starting on the top right, inside of my head down behind my right eye into the sinuses behind my right nostril.


Please can anyjbody help me. This is not the fistr time it happens. About a year and a half ago I got an mri and cat scan but I had nothing. The doctor told me it was the pituitary gland because I was still developing but this time the pain has gotten a worser? Is it still the same and when will I stop developing? (this might sound like a dumb question)

Barometric Pressure Related Headaches
Hello,

I am experiencing something similar to what both of you describe. It is a sharp shooting pain which often starts to appear around my eye and moves to the back of my head until the pain is present in my entire head. If I don't move my head the pain seems to stabilize, but whenever I move my head quickly it is like a shooting pain which makes me feel like my whole brain is going to explode.

I have some other observations:

1. For me it is directly related to changes in Barometric Pressure. It tends to happen particularly if the pressure drops rapidly during the passage of a warm weather front during an increase in humidity. These are the same conditions that lead to rain.

Within the last day the pressure dropped, the humidity rose 40%, and the temperature peaked and is once again dropping. Note that the temperature is approaching the dewpoint (before the rain).

I have it right now, check out the weather conditions:

Data as of: 10:30 PM

* Wind Chill: 19°C
* Humidity: 82%
* Dew Point: 16°C
* Avg Wind: 7 N
* Pressure: 1012.87mbar


2. The headache disappears during/after the rain.

3. The things that help me are:
- drinking massive amounts of coffee
- head massages
- naps
- showers
- more coffee, with sugar!!! Smile


According to one scientific study lead by Dr. Galina Mindlin at the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia on this subject, there was a definite correlation established between chronic sufferers of headaches and changes in weather patterns.

Other studies as far back as 1981 have confirmed this phenomenon.

Hope this helps!

rite side head pain
You are having "CLUSTER" headaches. The best treatment is 100% oxygen. Decongestants make it worse. And there isn't enough Tylenol or advil in the world that can stop that pain.

I am 36 years old and have the same thing. on my right side of head, pain. It also started in Feb 2011. I have been to the ER on Feb 19th 2011, also to two other doctors. One Dr. gave me 500 mg of antibiotics to take 6 of them a day. That made the pain worse. The bad thing is not one Dr has gave me an x-ray. I also have a factor v gene where i produce blood clots. that worry's me. seeing how the Dr says you have to have a blood clot before you can be put on blood thinners.I have fevers with my headaches, I get real cold. As if i am freezing. while i am having them i feel as if i am clinching my jaws together. I am not a pain person, cant handle it. so can someone tell me what can help my pain? i have tried coffee, Advil,aspirin. the only thing that seems to help is flexaril. muscle relaxer. but i have small kids so i cant really take it until bedtime. Any ideas. thanks STEPHANIE

Right side of the Head-Head Aches/Migraines.
I am 22 years old as of now, I get Chronic Migraines on only the Right side of my head. It started around the first of Feb. and lasted for DAYS. I got fed up around Feb 7th 2010 and Went to the Emergency Room. They did a CT scan said everything was fine and sent me home. Almost 4 hours later I received a call. (I had it checked as I was Flying out on the 10th for vacation) The call I received was from a different ER doctor telling me they found 3 abnormalities on the CT scan and that I needed to return within a weeks time for a Re-scan.

Since I was flying out I explained to the Dr. that I would not be back in the Country (Canada) until Feb 18th. They sent me a letter while I was away with the date and time to be there. They did the Re-scan and wouldnt tell me what they found. I had these "headaches" the whole time I was gone and still get them. Since no one called me back after the scan on March 2nd 2010, I left it until it got worse. I figured the weather was changing dramatically being spring and all. I went to a clinic when I couldnt bare to sit, stand, lay down let alone drive anywhere with Lights, which is odd for me. When I wet to the clinic the Dr. on couldnt believe that the ER did not call me back. They had found some kind of Hemorrhaging on the Left frontal Lobe of the Brain. In turn they also found Calcium deposits. Since then nothing has worked. I had to go to a different hospital and BEG for answers. Finally I got a ER dr. willing to listen to everything I had to say. He found a medication that seems to be helping with pain for the most part, and is referring me to a Neurologist. I would suggest the same thing for people having these problems. I have been reading up on Calcium deposits on the brain and they can range from Non-severe to potentially severe with different medical conditions that are either caused by or develop from this. I used to think it was the weather as well, but it took some "raising Hell" and finding the right DR. to help.

As of currently (April 8th 2010) I still get pain but the medication is helping and I am waiting for a call back from a Neurologist.

Don''t sit back and take their answers for granted, Ask to see your results, have them explained and if you have to, take the drive to a new hosp. or clinic to get a second opinion. Be straight up and tell them what has already be done but also explain it is not helping. Eventually you will find the right DR. to help you out!

Hope this helps anyone in the same situation as I.

RIGHT EYE PAIN PRESSURE AND BLOOD SHOT
I too was in the hospital but for the pain in my right eye. They didn't know what to say...they thought it was a form of Glacoma, then they mentioned calcium deposits, my right eye was NOT dialating and the pressure was twice the pressure of the left eye.They STILL can for sure tell me what the heck is going on. However the anibiotics seem to be working out of a whim! I had an "hell raising migrain" only on the right side of my brain and one hour later I literally felt it the moment it crossed over to feel that HELL on my left side as well. I have a optometist appointment tomarrow, but he seems to not really know what's going on. Any body have any suggestions?

sharp pain behind right eye
I am 48 yrs old, have factor V Leiden and on Coumadin. I notice that when my blood gets too thin (INR greater than 6.0) I get a sharp, headache pain behind my right eye. Shaking my head makes it worse. I up my vitamin K to make it feel better. For example, I was at work so the best thing I had was green tea. I had a strong (3 bags) cup of tea and that helped a lot. I also had a can of green beans in my desk and that helped too. For dinner I had some swiss chard chopped up in rice and after that, the pain was completely gone. I've always wondered that if I have a stroke (I'm very high risk), how will they know if it's a clot or hemmorrague and now I bet the headeache would be a hemmorrague symptom.

I'm 21, and for the last like 8 months I've been getting headaches and migraines atleast five times a week, on my right side from the top of my head, behind my eye and around the side.. Haven't been to the doc so I don't what my problem is..
But who knows exactly why we get them till we see the doctors it could be many things.. Like stress, a condition, the weather.. So if you get them alot see some doctors and figure out the cause and ways to help!!!
