Hi, i get severe headaches behind my eyes (i feel like pressing my eyes into my head) and all over my head, sometimes they are one-sided (when they are less severe) but sometimes my head just feels like it is going to explode, i have a whoosing or pulsating noise in my right ear which gets worse when i have a headache. This has been going on for about a year now. I also feel very dizzy and light-headed when i have the headache and do suffer from frequent faints- not when i have the headaches though - although after faints i seem to get the same sort of headache. I have a feeling that maybe low blood pressure is causing my headaches? I have been more stressed out recently but still i shouldnt be getting headaches this severe. My last one was a couple of days ago and everytime i stood up i felt so sick! I vomited 5 times in 2 hours. I took diclofenac, codeine and paracetamol and non of them shiffted the pain! I am 22 years old. And the headaches seem to be getting worse. My GP does not seem to be taking me seriously but i am getting this headaches 2-3 days a week! Is anyone experiencing anything similar?

Hi, I'm so sorry you are feeling so bad. Sounds like you need a new doctor or to just flat out ask for a referral to a neurologist. The neurologist can differiniate what types of migraines you are having and possibly prescribe a daily preventative drug, so that the cycle can stop. He/she may also cut some of the other medication down to make sure there isn't a rebound effect from them. With your age, these could be hormone related as well and they may suggest a low dose birth control pill, if you can tolerate it. I wish you the best and hope you get to feeling better very soon!

You seriously!, need a headache specialist, a neuro who specializes in headache...what area of the country do you live..there are several great ones and a bunch of mediocre ones.
I have multiple types of migraine and headache, with clusters being the worse; wicked has good suggestions here, but you need to get to the right kind of dr.
Hope to hear form you soon...
