My name is Jason and I have had a headache in the back of my head for 6 weeks now. It never goes away unless I take heavy doses of Vicodin. The headache is a dull pressure and Ibuprofen won't even touch it. I have had a CT, MRI, and a CT Angiogram and nothing came up other than four hyperdensities. My doctor sent me to a neurologist who wants to run a bunch more MRI's with contrast. The neurologist said a lot of people have hyperdensities but it doesn't mean it is the cause of the headache. They tested my blood for over 10 things but nothing is showing. The neurologist thinks it might be Chronic Daily Headache which gives me the impression he can't figure it out. The headache doesn't really change if I am standing or lying down. The headache does start to throb when I do any sort of strenuous activity such as lifting something heavy or work out. The neurologist prescribed me Indomethacin which only gave me a really bad stomachache. I really am getting worn out from this headache and really want to figure out what's going on. If anyone has any ideas or wants more information please let me know my email is jbarbee4@gmail.com

  • Maybe have your heart checked by a doctor. Strenuous activity requires the heart to pump harder. If it doesn't pump properly, there would not be enough oxygen reaching your brain, possibly causing the headache.
