I got a severe headache after coughing one morning. The following day my neck was stiff and the headache continued for a week. I saw a MD and was told to go to the ER. They, thinking it was a anuerysm, performed two cat scans, numerous xrays, three MRI's, blood work and finally a lumbar puncture. One week in the hospital and all tests proved nothing was wrong. I've been home a week and the headached continues - 22 days now. Pain pills, antibiotic, over the counter headache pills and nothing works. I'm at a loss for relief.
