I have been experiencing headache usually at the top of the head, sometimes at the back portion of the head for sometime. Although the pain is bearable it is bothering me to the extent that I can not do my work efficiently. The pain would sometime be for a day, sometimes for a couple of days. What could this be?

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. Sometimes the pain was worse than others., sometimes just a dull ache. This started on a Saturday night. By Monday ...
