OMG!! I've had what I'll term a 'smart headache' for at least 6 months now. I call it smart because it knows the time. My right-sided headaches start every single day at around 10:30 pm and last approx. 12 hours. These headaches are so smart they made it through a four hour time zone change and 'corrected' themselves from western to eastern time!
Usually these headaches completely disappear throughout the day, only rarely do i have any symptoms during the daylight hours...thank goodness.
When these headaches are at their worst I feel like i could bash my head up against the wall. It feels like my neck discs are bulging, there is pressure and pain in the back of my head, the top right side, as well as the right temple and forehead.
The doctor prescribed Verapamil...but to no avail. Pain relievers do nothing as well. Has anyone experienced these 'smart headaches'...and if so, what did you find helped?
A few years back, I suffered a headache 24/7 for 6 months. By the time they got around to doing any tests, my headache had vanished and left no trace. The doctors diagnosed me with 'cluster headache'...and I was glad it never returned! I feel B12 injections given by a naturopath at that time cured it...however, this time it failed to work.
This headache that has plagued me for as long, (if not longer), is different...acts different and feels different too. My doctors has diagnosed me with 'cluster headache' again, although no tests were performed.
Any suggestions other than headbanging? I'll try almost anything!
