I have headaches that happen daily. They start in the right side of the base of the skull and radiate up to my right eye with the main pain being in the back of the head. Feels like a sledge hammer has struck me over and over again. I'd been diagnosed with Ice Pick Headaches but the pain lasts longer than the 5 to 30 second intervals i've read about. They can last as long as 10 hours without meds. When i take the inderol and sleep, i normally wake up without one but as the day progresses, WHAM! I get them every day for weeks on end and then i go a few days without then they're back again. I close my eye and i get shooting white patches with the pain. I really don't know what to do as these incompacitate me for the most part and i have small children....i am 48 years old and female. I've had these headaches on and off now for 8 years and enough is enough.
