Hello. I have suffered from this headache since October of 2006. I have had a mri done and ct scans. I have been to many doctors. I have tmj and am planning on having surgery in the spring. I have tried over 27 medications, herbal remedies, accupuncture and nothing at all and these headaches will NOT let me go. They wake me from a dead sleep, my eyes swell and water like I am crying, sound and light I am sensitive to, they make me incredibly irritable, even the blood pulsating into my head makes it hurt LOL. I don't have HBP and have been tested for many other things. I am at a dead lock. I feel like I am screaming and noone is hearing me. I have my family doctor who is great help but his hands are tied. I have been to neurologist, ENT, pain mgmt docs, you name it. Recently I read a article on a University website about cluster headaches. I fit the description some. My family doc gave me Imitrex. I have only been on it few days and still find my headache shadow is still following me around....not as bad but the daggone pest is still lurking....:mad:
My question to ANYONE that has any input or suggestions for me.....please let me know. I am at my whits end with this. These headaches are a daily event and I can't have a normal life with them. Have any of you had/have similar symptoms I do? What do you do or take? I have even tried vigorous exercise with mine and nothing. I was told by a neurologist I have common everyday headaches. I got up and walked outta his office. A common everyday headache does NOT wake you up from a dead sleep. So PLEASE if anyone can help me I am desperate. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
