..I cant find anywhere what is wrong with me. Ive been to the doctor 3times about it, they've tooken blood && urine, and everytime i have been told its just a simple migraine and i should take aliev and other over the counter products. I cant accept what they keep telling me anymore!

It use to happen once in awhile if i went through a real mental obstacle that day. But now its happening every* night.

Symptoms: Front of the skull (forehead) heaviness pressure Intense pains && pains on high levels of swollen temples with, as of a feeling of, built up pressure behind the temple tissues.
Eyes not burning but instantly blood-shot, not crying but continuous watery and tears, and a feeling of they are going to "pop-out".

I had my tonsils taken out and was prescribed oxycodene. Once they healed I still had some left. I know its not good but I started using them to make the pain stop becuase how intense* the pain was and how powerful the pills were. It would eventually make the pain end and make me fall asleep about an hour later.

Im tired of this, ive never experienced such a greatness of a pain like this before and was not going to settle for *its a common migraine* lecture and how sensitive i am being to it.


..for the past month 1/2 its been unbarable! when it comes, it comes hard. it will knock me down, restricting me from everything (including using the bathroom) thats how crutual and major the pain is. My boyfriend gets a scared look in his eyes when he walks in sometimes from work and see's me zoned out, before i evern get to say a word, he'll already had asked *hay! hay! are you ok!*. This has been happening more and more frequent to it being every single day now,lasting longer and longer each time.

I just want a diagnostic on what other options it could be. please and thank you very much!..

It may help-and save you $5000 in useless tests and doctors...

I had same types of pain along with polymialgia , headaches turned out to be temporal arteritis or giant cell arteritis ,only way to confirm is by having a biopsy done also i would be seeking a opinoin of a vacular dr or reumatologist. Ive had this for 14 months now -meds = vicodin and predisone . complication could be irreversable blindness if disease is untreated . i have good days & bad days bad days i can barely get out of bed - severe pain in temple areas and running down left side of back off head into my neck - sensitve scalp and forehead - pain behind left eye -dizziness and blurry site in left eye. i hope this helps -its very hard when one does not know whats going on.

  • Hi,I feel for you. It does sound vascular. I myself had actually had a headband on which was tight and it has dented my head and the temples hurt and my eyes are always watery and then bright red. I know that I am not getting good blood flow but the doc's don't know why but I can feel the compression on my head from the headband. If you are wearing any headbands or tight glasses or clenching your teeth all of this can cause pressure. My eyes tear and are always glassy and I feel like the muscles are being stretched and my face is pale. I wish you luck but thought this might help some. Don't give up and I also agree on the temoral artery tests. I wish you well.
