  • try a cup of coffee at the onset of the attacks. Get allergy tested for food sensitivity and when you find out what it is, never eat it again...

  • Try an ENT or a Neuro. I have a history of migrane. So when I get severe headaches migrane is the the first diagnosis. I was seeing a neuro and was having similar headaches and he said to me that sinus problems can cause some of the symptoms I was having. I had a MRI, CT and no one had said anything about my sinuses so he looked at the MRi and said that I had mucosal thickening. So I went to see a ENT and he put me on antibiotics for 3 weeks and the pain finally stopped and he sent me for a sinus CT and said that the regular CT and MRI do not show the sinuses well enough and most do not look at the sinuses. My headaches are alot of times at night in my forehead and the back of my head. I also experience pain in the back of my head and neck. Also try a cervical MRI.
