my father has persistent headache since he was around 22yo
he tried many doctors here in Brazil, acumpunture and everything he could think about, but nothing worked and the causes are still a mistery

he usually feels headache in the direction behind the left eye and it's not so painful (he can move the head, jump, without much pain)

the isn't a single day when he doesn't have this headache and with simple headache medication it stops

any hints?
maybe I could ask him for some exams and consult an on-line doctor

  • forgot to add:- he's 52yo now- when he drinks alcohol, the headache gets worst (right after drinking it, not in the next day)

  • There are certain things that can set them off. Dairy, chocolate. You might want to have your father tested for allergies. I get migraines everyday and my doctor's say it is due to having Sleep Apnea. You may want him to have a sleep test done. Most insurance will cover the testing.Good luck!Bobbi
