Full Question: Please help this is critical to me! I am 20 years old and a male and I have been suffering with a headache at the top and lower left sides of the back of my head for months now. It just wont go away. It causes burning sensations, pins and needles, it can be throbbing or it can be dull but it is debilitating to say the least! Please tell me what you think this might be! I do have chronic sinus problems and I used to weight lift a lot, but after in a while as I am seeing a chiropractor for a neck and shoulder problem.

Full Question : My head started hurting four nights ago. The throbbing was only on the left side (my left) of my head, with most of the pain behind my left eye. I often get headaches, and occasionally migraines, so I took an Excedrin, but continued to toss and turn all night. I have Imitrex, but this did not present as a migraine with the visual distortions I normally get, and it was only on one side, so I didn't take the Imitrex. Also, once my migraines start, the Imitrex is mostly ineffective. I expected to be fine in the morning, but the pain continued, and my face began to hurt, if touched--my left cheekbone, left forehead, left side of my nose, even my eyelashes on my left eye hurt to the touch at one point. This facial pain was sometimes worse in one place or the other--all only on the left side. Occasionally, a pain would whoosh through my left ear, to the eye.
