Hello, I have been getting head pains off and on for about a week. I'm assuming it may be a migraine, but this is a very uncomfortable feeling. I've taking advil and tylonal. But it comes back, I went for a cat scan 2 days ago. But my doctor hasn't called yet so I'm assuming and hoping it is nothing serious. I suffer anxiety/panic disorder so worrying is a big thing on my part. The pain is on the side of my head, by the temples. Than sometimes it's towards the top side of my head.

a Few Ideas
Did you know that taking over counter meds like that can cause rebound headaches?If your ct scan is ok,your dr may want to refer you to a neurologist or a headache specialist.There are headache clinics that may also deal with migraines.
I had a great neuro that had a seperate headache/migraine clinic.Migraines can be hard to figure out.There are alot of preventatives and there are alot of abortives.
Have you tried keeping a headache diary?Some people are able to figure out triggers or possible triggers that way.Weather never bothered me.But now,changes in weather make my pain go crazy.Some foods can be a trigger,stress.
Best wishes

Headache/migraine
Have suffered these for over 30 years..migraines can last for a week in my case sometimes. I found a great neurologist and if the meds I'm currently taking do not work, next step is Botox injections between the eyes. As for your case, YES, your teeth can have an overall effect on your well being/health. I think you should see a dentist and have this tooth repaired to ensure this is not whats causing you the headaches. A throbbing broken tooth sounds painful itself. Hopefully its not infected.
