Ok, first, I need to know if a rabies headache is constant or simply occurs daily. My history includes getting a cat bite two years ago. The authorities captured what we thought was the cat and it didn't have rabies, so I only got the first two shots of the series (on day 0 and day3) along with the special immunoglubulin aroung the wound site. Well, come to find out, there were two cats who looked alike. Now I'm worried since I don't know if we got the right cat.

I have had a headache almost every day for the last month. it feels like a lot of pressure in my forehead mainly over the right supraorbital foramen. My head feels like it will explode when I bend over far and when I laugh hard. I just had a CT scan which came out negative. When I'm not bending or laughing, I just feel a pressure or tightness in my forehead. I want to find out what is causing this soon because I want to get pregnant soon. I have been pretty stressed out and prior to getting these headaches, I had done some painting also. I just wouldn't expect paint to cause month-long headaches. I take no medications on a regular basis, drink plenty of water, and am only somewhat overweight (30 lbs.). We did lose a baby last year, so I wondered if depression could be contributing, but with the bending and laughing, I thought it might be more of a physical cause. I have also been pretty stressed out lately. The first day I noticed the headaches was on vacation (it was the first time we had flown on an airplane in seven years.) I got two hours of sleep the night before because I was so stressed out. My BP has been great (testing in the morning with little stress.) But I have also wondered how out of sync a person's blood pressure has to be in order to cause headaches. The other day, I had it checked, and it was 122/82 with a slight headache. Normal for me is 112/68.
Any information or test recommendations would be most appreciated.
