I am a 63 year old female with headaches and pressure for days. Headaches in temple area, behind eyes, pain above forehead area. Blood pressure ok. Some sinus drainage, have had headaches for two weeks in the past after a migraine, no migraine associated this time. Some nausea off and on as well. I am thinking sinus. No fever, no cough.

I also have had migraines since childhood. Vomitting, light and sound sensitivity. Some last for days. I have found if I take one 350mil of Aspirin a 500mil of Tylenol and a cup of coffee my headache goes away.

Headache pain from the lower back of head, top and temples. Temples are extremely sensitive to touch and at times I feel my upper left eyelid drooping and numbness on the left side of face. I have had this headache for a few weeks. Its intermittent at times. Please let me know what type of headache this is.

I have a terrible pain in one spot on my head in the right front. I also have a pain above my right eye. I have been treated for migraine, but it didn't help at all. I have had this terrible pain nonstop for 4 weeks.

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.

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.
