FROM OUR EXPERTS
I started having headaches about three years ago. To me they seemed to be cluster headaches. They came about one o'clock in the afternoon everyday from December to February. This year, however, my headaches started in mid September and ended mid October. After what I assume was my cluster period this year I began having pain in my left temple that lasts all day long. Sometimes its an intense throbbing and the rest of the time its just a constant annoying ache but it hasn't gone away. I've had an MRI and CT scans and an x ray done in the past all of which were normal. My doctor has not helped me with any of this. He just continues to give me pain killers. I have done research and haven't found anything so I am hoping somebody on here can give me an answer or tell me what to do next. Ashley.
You're quite right to question this new headache. As you probably know, cluster headaches don't last that long, so it's most likely not relate...
For the past 3 months i have been getting weird sensations in my head. Like my head is freezing. Also i get sharp stabbing pains on both sides of my head and at the back of my head. Then also pressure on temples and the front section of head with my nose bone paining and my cheekbones. I have no nausea or vomiting. I am very concerned. Please help, Wendy.
