I have been getting these headaches constantly for a week straight I keep taking tyneol for it because we've also been trying to concieve so I don't want to take the chances with excedrin or anything else.. I don't know what's causing them.. my mom had 3 cysts in her head once and she went in for headaches, but I have medicaid and nobodys accepting medicaid around where I live aside from the hospital. I don't have a job to pay out of pocket for a doctor, and I want these headaches gone! It's on the temple of my head on the left side, always the same spot.

Im in the same boat, but when I stand up, cough or even goto the bathroom (number 2) I get these excruciating shooting pains all on the right side of my head, it feels like my brain is about to explode or something, its hard to explain the pain but it hurts. I don't know if it's just me but it also seems like my balance is off aswell.. I've tried taking tylenol, advil and motrin but none of it has helped.

Have you tried excedrin? Sometimes that works for me, but the pain always comes back, but at least it helps for a while..

I went to the hospital lastnight for my headache that I had for the last week straight and the doctor gave me two injections in my hip that took my headache away.. it was still slightly there but not to the point where I was uncomfortable as before. He didn't do any tests on me which I found quite odd because "what if" it was something else. He also gave me a perscription if my headaches are to return.

My headaches have almost gone away, but I wanted to mention, my mother had headaches for a month and when she went to see her doctor they ordered her an MRI and a CT Scan.. it showed she had cysts in her head which was the cause of the headaches.. Tumors can also cause headaches, I worked in radiology myself and I know from my familys experience it is nothing you should play around with. My Uncle has a Brain Tumor and is on his death bed, but he had severe headaches for symptoms, my mom cysts in brain which weren't cancerious but still.. if they continue ask your doctor to write you up an order for a CT or MRI of the brain to rule it out if it's been going on for a while.

Thank you for your knowledge, I'll be sure to make a doctor's appt as soon as possible! I thought it was odd myself that he didn't do any tests either, first thing that came to mind was a brain tumor seeing as cancer and tumors both run on both sides of the family.
