Hi. I am desperate and hoping for some advice. For the past 4 months or so, I have been having daily severe headaches.  I thought it was medication, but it wasn't. So I had my eyes examined again, and it showed that my vision had changed. I have had my new ones for a couple weeks now, and I am still having severe pain every day.  The pain is behind my eyes and on the forhead. Sometimes it is in the temples. Right now it right behind my right eye and it hurts so badly.  The pain NEVER stops. I am living on prescription Tramadol for the pain and I just wish I could get off of it because it causes dizziness and terrible weakness. I am so scared that I could have a brain tumor. My health has deteriorated in the past 5 years and I just can't seem to get well at all.  I just had sinus surgery in June to remove sinus polyps but that went good and saw my ENT yesterday and the sinuses look good. No infection.  I did have a ear/sinus infection a few weeks ago with ear pain and plugged ears. I think my ears are starting to get better, but these headaches are killing me. I just can't stand the pain any more.  I am seeing a neurologist on wednesday. Does anyone have any advice?? Please tell me it dosent sound like a tumor!  I don't have a fever or vomiting with this at all. Thanks for your help.

We are NOT doctors. I work in the medical field, but I will tell you flat out, tests will reveal if you have a tumor or not. It could be sinus migraines. Have you tried taking some benedryl with your regular migraine medication? Ask your neuro to examine you for your migraines. Neurologists are more trained than a primary doctor for migraines.

Thanks for the advice. I really don't understand what is happening with me. I haven't had any headaches for a few days now, ever since I started having ibs problems with stomach pain. It dosent make any sense. I don't take migrane medication. Thanks

Actually that makes sense... It shows your migraines may be related to something the IBS is causing, mention it to the neurologist.

I've had a ten year journey of going from being totally disabled from migraines almost never having one. Here is my abridged advice:

First rule out anything the doctors can do for you. Be tested for:

-- MRI for brain tumor or neck problems (even if you've never had neck pain.)
-- Food allergies
-- Obvious chemical imbalances

If that doesn't yield anything, I suggest you go to a holistic M.D. My holistic doc found things no one had EVER thought to check for, and all the test were covered by Medicare and Medicaid.

After that, you're left with looking into diet changes, supplements, etc. (After ruling out the above, this is where I, personally, would start but I know not everyone trusts the alterntive route.0

Don't despair; don't give up!!! I know it's horrible to go through this but many have found the cure that works for them, including me!

I am now writing a book on what I've learned on my journey with migraines and want to be sure that I have addressed most peoples' greatest concerns. If you (and other readers) have a few minutes, I would be very grateful if you would be so kind as to fill out my very brief survey at http://migrainesurvey.blogspot.com.

Blessings, and good luck to you.
