i have been dealing with right side headaches, throat and neck pain for four years now and i have had mri, catscans, bloodwork done with no answers. My doctor says everything is normal. I have been to neurologists who put me on clonazepam with no results and did injections in my neck that did not help. Now my right eye vessels in the corner hemorragh and it takes about 7 days for it to reabsorb. I am so sick of this. I really need some answers. This is sucking the life right out of me. The pain can be so imbearable sometimes. If anyone has any answers please let me know.

Red eyes are caused by enlarged, dilated blood vessels leading to the appearance of redness on the surface of the eye, and, the degree of redness or appearance of blood is not the factor that determines what is serious.

Do you feel constant, boring, pressing, burning, stabbing or piercing pain at one side of the head, mostly located behind the eye or in the temple, sometimes radiating to the neck or shoulder?
Is this a headache that usually lasts 30-45 minutes or sometimes up to 3 hours and strikes at the same time each night or morning, often at precisely the same time during the day a week later?
Have you noticed that you are agitated and restless during the attack of headache?
Do you get eye tearing together with eye redness?
Are you experiencing nasal congestion, too?

Hi,
I have recently had a "vascular spasm / icepick stabbing issue on the right side of my head... long story but after a catscan, MRI, etc. I found the cause (though not why) and that was MILK.

I have always been a big milk drinker but for some reason I cannot touch it anymore. At the height of my problem, I stopped smoking, stopped coffee & soda and it just got worse. I had to stop consuming ALL milk products and start drinking sodas again for it to go away. It hits about 6 to 8 hours after consumption of milk products for me.

Hope this helps
