Constant headache pulsating

User Profile

I have had a constant headache for just over a week now. It is so annoying. Like there is a pulsating in my head all the time. Also when I walk my brain sounds like its clicking. My eyes hurt when I look around and light hurts my eyes. I am taking Anadin but these arent helping. It is making me very tired and dizzy at times. Alot of people are saying its a migrane but it isnt strong enough to be one and its constant and not stopping.

Am I being a hypocondriact or do you think something is wrong?

The symptoms you reported might be related to migraine. The pain is usually severe, but not always. The location of the pain and its duration are important, too.
You might want to visit your doctor to check for other causes for headache, such as: cervical spondylosis, eye problems and hypertension. More serious causes for headache have to be ruled out before treating the headache as migraine.
