Greetings All,
Thanks for your previous replies. So I have this headache on the right side of my head that I cannot shake. It feels the worst right at the temple - especially when I bite down I can almost pinpoint the pain. The strange thing is I feel like I can feel a vein pulsing in the back of my head. Sometimes the pulsing moves to the temple but it only lasts a few seconds. I also just felt a tingling sensation in my right cheek. Sometimes I feel a touch off balance from it. I have had 3 CT scans, 1 MRI, 1 MRA and a C-Spine MRI - thankfully al normal. So I don't think it is anything serious (stroke, tumor, etc.). It just won't go away and I seem to be waking up at the same time each night - 1:30 am and 5:00 am. It's like clockwork (no pun intended). Anyone have any suggestions? I would love to kick this if I could.

Hi, I don't know what to suggest but to say that hey hang in there I really feel for you. When I had a problem with meds containing codeine my headache was continuous and that really got me down but was able to wean myself off them and I don't get the continuous headache quite the same now. Will pray for you, take care Ann

Do you have a good doctor? Headache Specialist preferrably...?

What medications have you tried? Have you been on the migraine diet? Try to keep regular sleep patters and eating patterns...

Let me know, I may have adivce???

Always see a dr though
