I'm a 24 year old female, suffering from intense (10/10) pain in my head when I cough, laugh, scream, bend over/stand up, roll over in bed etc....the pain lasts about 5-6 seconds and throbs at the base of my skull and the top of my head. Started last July when I was taking Spironolactone. On a good day I experience the pain ~10 times, but on average it's about ~30-40 times a day.
In addition to the pain, I've been experiment aching limbs, my hands and feet fall asleep easily, lose my balance often, run into inanimate objects.
My family Dr told me its tension headaches and prescribed cyclobenzaprine, which aside from making me super exhausted have not helped with my symptoms.
For anyone else who has experienced this pain, what helps you? What have your doctors told you?
