For over 5 weeks I have had a headache at the back portion of my head, sometimes more on the right side than the left. This headache feels like the type you get when you cry really hard, except much stronger. There are no 'auras', it is not tension type pain, it feels like outward pressure. No light or sound sensitivity other than expected with a severe headache. Pain is much worse in morning, with day hours it dulls a bit, and starts increasing again at night. Feels better with heat, than ice, is worse on movement, is bad enough to restrict daily functioning. I am a steroid dependent asthmatic for 15+ years (the dependancy). I am overweight by about 50lbs. I also have been experiencing a bad taste in my mouth and an unusual craving for chocolate milk, something I have not drank in years.
I have not suffered from headaches my whole life (37 yr old female), until 6-7 months ago when I presented with a typical migraine with aura, light and sound sensitivity etc...at that time I had an MRI, which was found "unremarkable". I have been placed on Epidrin and darvocet by family Dr., went to ER and they did NOTHING. This headache came on suddenly and blindingly painful and has remained debilitating. No one in the medical field seems terribly concerned, however it is painful and has limited my activites even further than they were already restricted. I live in a VERY rural area, nearest neurologist is 80-90 miles away and an appointment is 2-3 months out and I am at my wits end, any suggestions would be helpful....PLEASE
