Hello Y'all ... My name is Semi ,'m 23 years old . I have an unusual headaches I have noticed for the last several years, that when I laugh at something, the back of my head, usually between my ears all the way across, hurts bad. I have to force myself to stop laughing because the pain gets really bad.....once I stop the pain slowly subsides. Its not that I'm laughing real hard either, just normal but while everyone else is still laughing at a funny story I have to quit because of the pain. it feels like a lot of pressure builds up and if I don't stop it will explode. That is so weird. I also have lingering head aches for days that are not too painful just lingering all week long and no medicine takes it away.. I am hoping that it isnt anything dangerous because it's been happening for almost 4 years now ..... please if this ever happened to any of you out there and were able to find out the cause , please share , I'd be very grateful !!

  • Hi semi, u really need to see a neurologist & have tests/MRI done to rule out anything serious & get a diagnosis, anything here will be just guessing. Good luck & best wishes :)
