4 weeks ago I was admitted to hospital with head pain. I sneezed and then I felt like I had been hit with a cricket bat, I fell to the floor and the awful pain lasted about 15 minutes. I had lots of tests, scans and a lumbar puncture and given the all clear to bleeds, tumours etc. I have had migraine before but nothing as bad as this pain. My consultant said I had a Primary Thunderclap Headache that I may have another and then I may not, to take another month of work and rest. If I have another thunderclap to go back to hospital to go through all the tests again to rule out the bleeds etc. I have had what I call Mini ones after a sneeze and the pain only lasts a minuet and I am left with a bad headache. I take paracetamol and sleep it off but I am fed up with this now. My question is how long do you think this will go on for and do you know any one who has anything similar? I have looked on the internet when my head is not too bad but could not find any information rega...
Hello, I have recently been suffering from severe headaches that originate behind my left eye, behind my ear, to the base of my neck. It hurts to cough, sneeze, or even bend over to pick something up. I had a CT of the sinuses and it turned up nothing.

The symptoms you describe are often symptoms of Migraine, but not always. That said, nobody can diagnose via the Internet, so you definitely need to find a doctor who understands Migraine and headaches . If you have trouble finding a doctor, there's a link below to our listing of patient recommended specialists.
One thing you can do to help you and your doctor determine what's going on is to keep a Migraine and headache diary. You can download a free diary workbook from our article Your Migraine and Headache Diary .
Good luck, John Claude ...
Bright and early Monday morning, I met my new
endocrinologist. I was pleasantly
surprised to learn that his office was in the same building (right next door
even!) to the office I visited throughout my pregnancy . (As a side note, I have had the best
experience with the doctors and hospitals at UCSD Medical
Center. It's great to take advantage of having all of
my care centralized in one group. The
communication between physicians is quite helpful for those of us with chronic
conditions. Also, it's nice to cut down
on the clerical busywork by using just one health care provider.)
Being the busy mom that I am, my logging records let much to
be desired, as in, I hadn't logged a single blood sugar for nearly four
months! I hastily jotted down a few days
worth of numbers, just so we'd have something to discuss. After managing a diabetes pregnancy, with the
incredibly tight control it demands, I was less than thrilled about the results
I had ...
