hi im 23 years old and have been dealing with what my neuroligist now calls chronic migraine. We have gone through all the scans and everything on paper is normal...however i feel constant pressure behind my eyes and have headaches that can sometimes last for days...this headache im having now started around 3pm yesterday, kept me up all night and woke up with it worse then it was yesterday...OTC meds do nothing for them...i have been tested for pseudo tumor cerebri and that was negative also. the headaches are normally behind my eyes and top of the head but somedays they are at the back,side or base it just depends on the day...but not a day goes by without having a headache some days worse then others but always there..

These headaches are controlling my life! we tried Topamax for about 4 months....no luck, we switched to Depakote a few weeks ago and i feel even worse now i feel...if anyone has any advice please feel free, i have been so discouraged lately and am so tired of living in pain

never had any major issues with sleeping or anything like that...stress level is pretty much as normal as it can be, i have a 2 year old son...i feel constant pressure behind my eyes and in the top of my forehead constantly, eye drs say my vision is totally fine, and all the tests ive had done have been normal....weve done ct scan with contrast, mri with contrast, lots of bloodwork and a spinal tap to check for pseudo tumor cerebri and nothing has come up at all...i keep a journal and there are no patterns, im not constantly on the computer or anything like that, just constant pressure in the eyes and headaches that move all over my head...im currently on day 5 of this headache with no break in the pain :( when i started feeling the pressure feeling was right before i found out i was pregnant with my son, so its been a little over 3 years now. The headaches became constant about 9 or 10 months ago but there really wasnt anything significant that happened then it kind of came out of nowhere...ive been having headaches since the pressure feeling started but just in the past 9 or 10 months they have become constant, if its not one lasting days i can get multiple headaches, sometimes its the same headache but the pain calms down to moderately annoying then a few hours later becomes full blown migraine..i hope that helped
