That said, you need to see your doctor for a diagnosis and any treatment that may be necessary. As much as we'd like to help and answer your question, the only person who can do that is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet.

I try to avoid aspirin unless absolutely necessary to avoid rebound headaches too. I am desperate for some relief. I lose too many days out of my schedule now and at this time can not even work due to the frequency of these headaches. Also my "aura" seems to have returned recently (floaters in my eyes). I had these when my headaches first started and have gone many years with only a very occasional eye floater. As of late, I have averag...
