I was diagnosed with Hemicrania Continua 15 months ago and am still experiencing headaches and pressure on the left side of my head. After a second MRI, a 2 mm cerebral aneursym was discovered. I am not on any medication at this time, as Indomethcin proved to be dangerous for my blood pressure. What course of action should I take at this time? I was told the headaches could last 3 -6 months, and yet, I still have mild headaches with continual pressure.
Hemicrania Continua is a rare, but treatable primary headache disorder. This means it is not caused by any other condition. Having said that, do you know if the anerusym plays any role in your head pain? A second opinion is never a bad thing.
Seeing an expert who deals with rare head conditions and Migraine disease would be a good idea now. That doctor would be a Migraine specialist. We have a patient recommended list you can see HERE.
they would have the latest and greatest info.
