Throbbing Pain Behind Eyes!

For the past week and a half I've experienced a dull throbbing pain behind my eyes. I'll get a really good night sleep and wake up the next morning--it's still there. It's a weird sensation--almost out of body. Can a migraine last a full week and a half, 24'7? I'm not dehydrated--I drink plenty of fluids. It makes me so nauseous that I vomited a few days ago. This feeling won't go away!

What should I do? I'm on student health insurance and have already visited the doctor on campus. Should I get a second opinion elsewhere? I'm nervous because I have had some slight head trauma before, but that was FIVE years ago. Is a brain aneurysm possible?

I realize I'm getting paranoid, but I just hope it isn't something my body is trying to tell me is wrong. What if it's serious?
