Hi I have had a severe headache for 5 weeks now. Started gradually, with increasing intensity to the point where I could barely speak. I was admitted to hospital and had a ct scan of the brain, which was all clear. I was given medication for migraine headaches, which had no effect. I was then given tramadol, paracetamol, amitryptiline, and oral morphine, which are helping. The headache is worse on standing and sitting, but eases when lying down. My blood pressure is fine. When I wake up in the morning, both hands are numb, and my left hand remains very cold throughout the day. I have previously had 2 episodes of subclavian vein thrombosis (last time was about 10 years ago) and wondered whether this may have returned and could be causing the headache? I havent mentioned this to my GP yet, as I only thought about it in past few days and am waiting for my appointment.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
