Only because you've already tried the entire pharmacy, you *** SO *** need to get your CSF / spinal fluid pressure checked.
Imagine a closed tall pipe with one little drain and one little water supply. No leaks and you only have problems if the drain and supply get out of whack. If there is a little leak, it leaks at a rate controlled by the difference between the pressure in the pipe and the pressure outside the pipe. So suppose the pressure stays steady. The drain system thinks the supply system is slow and the supply system thinks the drain system is fast. So if the leak is not too big they adjust and after a while things smooth out. Then the pressure changes. So now the thing leaks either a bit slower or a bit faster. The supply and drain systems try to compensate. This doesn't happen so fast. If the overall pressure is too high you get one sort of problem, if the overall pressure is too low another sort of problem. Then the pressure changes again and you sort of have a moving target there.
Obviously if the leak is too big then no way can the supply keep up and you always have a pain problem.
Likewise if there is no leak and the drain is too fast or the supply is too slow, same low pressure problem. Or if the supply is going banannas and the drain is stuck, then a high pressure problem.
So, you know, look for a plumber with an MD. These are called 'neurosurgeons'. They can evaluate your situation and let you know whether this is or isn't an issue.
