Starting around the beginning of February, I started to get pressure in the bridge of my nose. Ok, not a big deal. Maybe it's my sinuses or something. Then I started to develop headaches. But these headaches weren't like the headaches I got before. The headaches I got before were in my forehead area, just above and near my eye. They went away easily with Advil. These headaches do not go away with NSAID's. I can barely pinpoint the exact spot where they are... but it feels like they are right, frontal, and the top of my head. Always on the right side. The pain is pretty much consistently moderate. Sometimes it's a little worse, sometimes better. No nausea, no dizziness, pretty much no secondary physical symptoms.

CT scan showed a normal healthy brain. So no tumors. That's good I guess.

My primary doctor said it's anxiety (I know shocking... though I do have a history of anxiety, mainly because of my emetophobia). But this has been going on for a month and a half now. I'm in the middle of my junior year of high school, and I'm taking very hard classes. I don't know how I'm going to survive this year. I would trade a LOT of things just for these headaches to go away. I keep reading stories about people having chronic headaches for years. Let me say something: that CANNOT be me. I cannot live like this for the rest of my life. This has only been going on for a month and a half and I'm already showing signs of depression. I see a psychologist every two weeks but that doesn't do much either.

At this point I'm hopeless... I'm begging for help. I'm seeing my primary on monday and I'm just going to let it all out. I don't even care at this point. I will do anything, and I mean anything for these headaches to go away. That's how desperate I am. Please, any advice would suffice.

Thanks for reading.

Sounds weird but try an antihistamine with your migraine medication... if it works you have allergy migraines then.

I get allergy migraines, neurological migraines, menstruation migraines, sometimes stress. And some foods too. But I found most of my triggers, so I dont get them as much. I get maybe one or two every couple months

To ALL,

I'm a migraine sufferer too, I've been the lab rat, I've bought the drugs, they didn't help, I've had my sanity questioned, I've been subjected to the frustrating diagnosis of, "I have no idea whats wrong with you, therefore you must either be at fault or crazy, maybe both." Sound familiar?

I got frustrated, when I get frustrated I take the problem apart, piece by piece. I develop non drug cures for human pain caused by the interface of a piece of hardware in aero space and military applications. I've been doing this for 35 years, I hold 23 patents, 42 more pending, I've designed 700+ devices. I'm not a doctor. I'm an "old guy", 62. I have a new device that has helped everyone who has used it, so far, 30 people. The following is a typical response. Julia is one of my staff accountants.

Hi Mike,

I had a migraine headache last Thursday and took home a "PVF" helmet that Dan let me try.

My migraines give me speckled vision, pinching head pains and make me nauseous. I don't get them often, mostly when I'm under a lot of stress, but when I do get them its hard to function. So I had to leave work early and I went straight home put the helmet on and went to bed. An hour later woke up with no headache, vision was clear and no more nausea. Amazing! Thank you!

Julia

Is anyone interested in experimenting on themselves with a device that has no known side affects, (the technology has been used in military flight helmets in excess of 20 million flight hours) it either helps or it doesn't, no risk either way. I spent my time and money (lots of both) on this to fix my own problem, now I'd like to help.

Mike

My chronic migraines started when I was 15. Tbh, yours don't sound particularly like a migraine, obviously I can't be sure over the internet with a limited amount of information, but migraines are usually one half of your head. When I get them, it's usually a pounding headache in all of the right (of left, depends) half of my head.

Both migraines, and many other types of headache can be caused by stress. You sound like you've a lot of stress going on at the moment, with hard classes and that. Try to take notice whether they get better when you have some rest, such as at the weekend, or during your mid-term holidays. The best thing I can advise is to keep a headache diary: write in when the headache starts (or gets worse, if you have it all the time), what you were doing at that time or shortly beforehand, what you ate. Common food triggers for migraines include chocolate, oranges, cheese and red wine. See if they get better if you exclude these foods.

I'd also like to mention that if you do end up diagnosed with chronic migraines, it's not the end of the world, really. Migraines can be controlled. I get mine quite frequently, so I'm on a migraine prevention medication, it greatly reduces the number of migraines I get. I think the main thing is to figure out what this is. After that's sorted out, controlling them will be the easy part.
