For the last few years I have been getting really bad headaches that makes my eyes hurt and makes me have grey hair where the aching is on the top of my head. I have good vision, so I know that's not it. Could you help me understand what's going on? I'm only a 20-year-old woman and I don't want this to happen every other day or week. Thanks.
I really wish I could help answer this question for you, but it can't be answered online. And you wouldn't want that done anyway. A diagnosis is made by seeing a qualified doctor who will take a full medical history, do an exam and discuss your symptoms.
You can go to your primary doctor to start and if you don't seem to get anywhere you may want to see a Migraine specialist of Patient Recommended Migraine and Headache Specialists.

If he didn't, he wouldn't have asked the question.
Thanks for reading, Jim. We have such a wonderful community here, and know they are looking for the best answers possible. Diagnosing via the internet can't do that -but a doctor who reviews your and your family's medical history, discusses your symptoms with you, and conducts a complete examination can.
