About 2 and a half years ago, I started noticing that I was getting a headache everyday and I am being literal. So here it is, July of 07 will be 3 years and still I suffer from this. I have went to the doctor sveral times and even though she said it wasnt tension headaches she recommended that I took muscle relaxers. When I looked at her like she was stupid and she asked what, I simply replied, "I may not be a doctor, but I'm pretty sure your brain isn't a muscle." Lets just say I took them anyways. The problem is, I am in the military, and the military does not like to spend money unless it has too, but this pain can be unbearable at times, and can last for over 12 days straight! I don't know what to do, I know that Aneurisms run in my family, and I at least want to rule that out, or the possiblity of a tumor. I just want to know why and what is wrong and what I can do. My doctors are driving me nuts. What can I do
