Patient Comments: Headache - Symptoms

What symptoms do you experience with your headaches?

Comment from: rusty, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: April 11

Well let's see it has been going on for 20+ years now and no doctor can tell me what is wrong. The headache is sudden most of the time behind my right eye. My eyes are light sensitive and at times it runs the whole right side of my head. Most of the time all I can do when they kick in is lie down and try to sleep. Any help would be nice so I can tell my new doc what is going on.

I get sporadic headaches starting at the temples across my forehead. Sometimes I feel like I hear whispering in my ears.

My daughter (15) is having regular headaches at the side of her head. She sometimes gets very hot with this and also feels sick. She has started to get jaw aches with them occasionally also. These occur at various times of the day. We have tried drinking more during the day and a change of diet but they are still occurring.

I have a headache that is worse in the evening. It feels like pressure in my lower head upper neck area. When I cough or bend over, it is more noticeable.

I have headache for the past 1 month. It's painful constantly on the neck portion and back portion of my head. Doctors said it's because of typhoid, but I am doubtful.

I have had migraines since the birth of my second child. I started off slow with Tylenol 3. Unfortunately the migraines increased and so did their intensity. I have had over 15 MRI's I have tried Imitrex as well as others. The only thing that works for me is Maxalt. I have been on preventatives for 8 years. I take Topamax and Keppra. I don't put much stock in the Keppra and I am actually switching to a new medication and I am going to try the Botox. My migraines last anywhere from 2 hours to 13 days(my longest). They have been getting more severe this past year and have made having any type of normal life seem like a fairytale.

I'm 62 male and had angioplasty in October 06. Lately I have started getting this mild headache immediately after meal which would last for about an hour or so and would disappear on its own without any medication or treatment. I have been on medication for high cholesterol and BP and border line Uric acid and diabetes. About 2 months back, a slight change was made in my cholesterol medication from Rosuvas 20 mg to Rosuvas F 20 mg. and this headache only started about a fortnight back.

Have a pain that goes up my neck and the tightened muscles are what causes the headache. I've had message which works for immediate relief but not long term. For some reason I've had this current one for several days. I'm 45 and have noticed my menstrual cycle shortening to about 24 days. My self-diagnosis blames hormones.
