It's probably nothing serious, but I'll still ask about it. I've had constant headaches for a couple of weeks now, on the right side of my head. Sometimes it's worse, and sometimes it's just a dull pain, but it's always there. Sometimes, I feel a dull pain on the left side too, but most of the time it's just in the right side. A couple of days ago, I was going home from practise at 9 pm, and the pain in my head was worse than ever. Everytime we passed a car, or a light, I had to close my eyes, otherwise it felt like my head would explode. I was feeling nauseous, and the painkillers (no prescription) didn't work. I could hear throbbing inside my head, from the right side.
It's quite hard to explain. It's probably nothing serious. My mom has been talking about going and see a doctor, but I don't wanna go if I doesn't get worse or anything.
Also, just lately, I've been feeling more dizzy and tired, and I hear a quiet, weird ringing or noise in my right ear. It's not loud, I barely hear it at all, but it hurts.

I would suggest you to go to doctor too. The symptoms are similar with those of Migraines. If it turn out to be Migraine then you can take care of it now only with medicines. Don't wait for the time when it get verse.

Yeah, it could be migraine. I went to the optician to check if I had the wrong strength on my glasses, and I got lenses with slightly different strenght, but not enough to cause the headaches. I've been taking stronger painkillers than the usual ones, but it's now working. And the headaches hasn't gone away, if anything, it seems like they've gotten worse than before. The headache is only at my right side, and it's there all the time, mostly in one particular spot and the area around it, and they've been more intense this week.
But I'll go to the doctor sometime this week.
Just a little edit: the dizziness I felt before has increased. A lot. I feel more or less dizzy all the time, sometimes it's worse and sometime's I'm just slightly dizzy, and I still have the headaches. My balance isn't good too. It's been getting worse, and sometimes it feels like I'm going to fall down or faint, which I haven't yet. And in PE a few days ago, I got hit by a small, soft ball in my shoulder, and fell down because I lost my balance. I mean, usually I don't lose my balance just because of a little ball. And it wasn't even shot that hard.
And I don't know if this has anything to do with this, but a few weeks ago, before these really constant headaches started, I was home sick from school, because of a headache. I was downstairs when I suddenly started to feel all dizzy and feverish, so I went up to the bathroom to check if I had any fever. Before I even got to the bathroom, I couldn't even see, and everything went practially black. A loud beep in my ear started, and I stumbled back to my bad, holding on to the furniture so I wouldn't fall down the stairs, and got into the bed. Everything disappeared after a few minutes. I checked if I had fever, because I felt really warm, but I didn't.
I'm only 14, so I don't know what to do. Is this some kind of migraine?

I've had the exact same symptoms as you. For the past few weeks or so, my head feels like it's blown up from one side or the other. Sometimes I feel it all day, other times just for a while. I was also walking upstairs one time when i heard a long high pitched beep in my right ear. I heard it right before i went to sleep last night too. I've felt ALOT weaker latley with less energy for everything. Sometimes i feel like i have a fever or like i have to throw up, even though i don't. I feel like my eyes are very sensitive too light now too. As well as lack of balance. I told my mom and she's taking me to the doctors soon. I've been really scared because i have no clue what it could possibly be. Once I go to the doctors and see what he says, I'll let you know.

Have you been to the doctor at all regarding your headaches?

I went to the Doctors on Tuesday. She said that it was just migraines but my mom kept insisting that I should be tested further. I will now be going to the Stanford Neuroloist in about 10 days.

I've been getting this too lately
A dull, warm pressure type feeling on the right side of my head

It happened 2 weeks ago. I was feeling dizzy and not quite with it most of the day and I had a full blown panic attack later in the day

Got up this morning and its here again :(

Did anyone get any answers about this?

Hello ConquerMigraine, I,m new here also. I experienced my first migraine at age 11 and I have been suffering ever since. That has been 41 years ago, so I would sadly say there is no permanent cure sorry. I think if a person finds the right doctor that will listen to them and with the proper medication they can be alleviated to a point. :):)

I have had a migraine on the right side of my head that runs through my upper back teeth, through my ear and up into my right eye. I have lived with it for 13 years living off of advil. I have to take advil in the morning, then at is constant. I went to an ENT to see what was wrong about 12 years ago and he did sinus surgery on me. Did not work. Im starting to think it might be the fillings in my molars in my upper back teeth. Does anyone find this to be a problem.
