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.

I have what feels like a permanent headache in the back of my neck (where there is a knot floating around--my doctor said it was a muscle) and around my eyes. I also get migraines. I know I am under a lot of stress so I suppose this is the cause. For my migraines I take Fiornal tablets. I sure would like to get rid of these headaches.

I have had headaches since my early twenties. I believe they are hormonal as they last through the entire time I am on my period. At times they only last a few days but this time it has been a week.

My headache is daily or at least 4-5 times a week. It is mainly in my temple and around my eyes. Sometimes it is the back of the head and neck. My sinuses are clear.

I woke up in the middle of the night with a stabbing pain in my head on the left side. It felt like a knife being stabbed quickly into brain and then right back out, no pain in between what felt like thrusts.

I had pain on the left side of my head. The area feels tender to the touch. It usually happens in the morning when I wake up. I had this on and off for approximately 5 years.
