I have had a headache for almost a year. Started out as only having it once every couple of weeks. Now, it's almost continuous. When I cough or bend over, it feels like my brain is trying to squeeze through my skull.

My headaches wake me up in the night. Pain in the top of the head, nose and eyes. I can't understand why it happens when i am sleeping. During the day i don't have as many.

Headache started at the front left side, now it is still there but has moved to the lower back of head. I know when I walk in cold weather and not wearing a hat affects me sometimes.

I have had a headache on the right side of my head right above the ear for over 4 months it is constant. It came on suddenly. When the pain in my head dulls enough to be tolerable my ear hurts. I have tried many over the counter medications, I have even seen an ENT doctor, had an MRI and a CT scan that revealed nothing!

Headache is mild, lasted for 2-3 days. On start it covers whole head, then half potion mostly right. Eyes also have pain. Massage over eyes gives relief. Digestion is ok.

I have had a headache going on about four months. It starts at the front of my head and goes down to my spine. It is a hard pressured head ache it hurts all the time. I get dizzy and sometimes I even pass out from the dizziness. I have had some tests but I haven't heard any results yet.

I experience an aura with my migraines. The aura last no more than 20 minutes but it's the scariest thing ever. It has been like a halo vision, and recently a zigzag rainbow. I'm only 26 but it has happened 3 times my whole life. I get nervous thinking it's a brain tumor when it Happens which usually triggers anxiety.

I get my headache when the weather changes or because of my weak eye sight even when I eat things like spinach or cabbage. I have been getting headaches since 6 years but no cure.
