I have had a persistent headache for over 2 months now and it will not go away. It is mostly on the left side but does hurt all over at times. Usually its a throbbing feeling but i am getting more sharp shooting pains as time passes. I have had the whole blood work done and it came back fine. I had an MRI without contrast come back and it showed something but the nuero said it could just be from the headache. Recently I had another mri and an mra done, an eeg, a doppler test, bubble study, and a cvr ( i think thats the correct initials). I also had a sleep study and it showed I had slight sleep apnea but not enough to be on the machine yet. I haven't had the results back on all the tests yet or the second mri and mra. I am seriously freaking out. My mother had headaches for a few months but she never talked to her doctor and she passed away recently from a stroke so we never got the chance to find out what her headaches were from. She had a stint placed behind one of her eyes and she just figured the headache was from that. Right now the doctor isn't treating my headache at all and I am at wits end. Some nights I can sleep good other nights not so much and trying to work everyday it a chore with this headache. I know I have some health issues like asthma, allergies, gerd, heart palpitations, and now the slight apnea but I am only 23 years old and I am seriously freaking out but trying to stay calm with everyone around me, instead in my head I keep thinking its everything. I am kind of hoping I get anything for a result just do that I can treat it and get past the constant pain. I think I am more afraid that no one will figure out what it is. The thing is I am not really light or sound sensitive but I do try to avoid both at all costs, i am not sure if it actually makes the headache worse or just the fact I have a headache already that I avoid it.

Has any one else had a headache that isn't exactly always centralized? Or has anyone had an mri show just their headache? I guess it's just kind of nice to talk to people who can even slightly imagine or know what I am going through. I think people at work just think I am crazy.

your doing the right thing by getting all those test done, I hope you get some kind of an answer. My son has had a migraine for the last 8 years not one day of relief yet , he also has had a number of test and has been treated by many dr's with no results yet but don't ever give up, my son now is being taken off all pain meds that is a never ending cycle don't get into that.They want him on topamax and depression meds only. wishing you the best keep us informed of your results maybe you could shed some light for us.

Similar symptoms for 3 months.. multiple docs and tests all negative..

I think my root cause:
1. Toxic Mold 70%
2. Lyme's Disease 30%
