What symptoms do you experience with your headaches?

Comment from: 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: May 26

My headache positions around my right eye and right ear it feel like an electrical shock, I can almost time the pain. It's been years since I've had one, but it has returned. It also affects my right nostril and my neck and shoulder. After a while my head is sore to the touch. This pain can go on for hours or days, I just never know. I was told years ago, that there were no nerves in that area to cause this pain that was in my 20's. I'm now in my 50's.

I have very frequent headaches that seem to be centered in the bone behind my ear. Often the headache stays in that area, but sometimes the pain seems to move up to the top of my head or to my ear, or down the side of my neck.

For the past week, I've been getting headaches so bad that I cry. It hurts on the top, back, and left side of my head. Today it was hurting so bad I cried and then my nose started bleeding.

My headaches go along with blurry vision in my left eye, lasting between an hour to even a day and I experience throbbing above my right eye and temple. I am nauseous and my eyes are sensitive to light. This happens about 3 times a year, but other mild headaches just feel like somebody is sitting on my head and goes away after drinking a lot of water and some exercise.

I feel a dullness at the base of my head and behind my eyes. Sometimes my eyes feel as if they are crossed and out of focus. I feel dizzy, as if I am falling.
