hello. I had a migraine episode for the 2nd time in my life 8 days ago. I didnt think it was anything out of the ordinary until I notice a day later that the back of my head (occipital region) had a pulsating, throbbing sensation with NO pain whatsoever. I ignored it for a day or so but started getting concerned after it wouldnt stop. I went to the doctor and they gave me migraine meds which did nothing. They then proceeded to do a ct scan which produced negative results. After telling me everything is fine & sent me home w/ a prescription for a different meducation, I still have the same pulsating, throbbing feeling in the back of my head. Anyone have any idea on what this could be?? I'm starting to think that it's really not a "migraine without the pain" as the doctor told me and is something more serious....
