I've had a daily constant headache now for a year and a half. It's always on my right side and is concentrated around my eye and in the back of my head (where the head and neck meet). I've had all the tests done and the mri showed a slight chiari malformation, which they say isn't bad enough to be causing these problems. For a while my vision would get blurry then better but a couple months ago it got blurry and stayed that way and I feel that it is getting progressively blurry. (The neurologist sent me to an eye doctor who told me I needed glasses but they give me a headache too). I've tried all the common headache meds- antiseizure, beta blocker, calcium channel blockers, antidepressents and nothing works. Tripans make my head feel like it's going to explode (especially in the back). I've seen a number of doctors and feel like I'm at my wits end. Any advice would be most appreciated.
