It looks like the proper term for 'solo-time' is censored. I'm sure you will know what i'm referring to though.
I read a case in the book "In Stitches - the life of an A&E doctor" which concerned me as i could relate to it. The results for the person in the book weren't good. IIRC they had bleeding on the brain. While i don't think i have that, i am concerned enough.........
At the time i thought these 3 cases were separate from each other, but now i'm not so sure...
Back around 2009/2010 there was a 1-2 week spell where when i *********d, i got the most intense pain ever. It started at the base of my head/neck & radiated to the front of the head. IIRC it was specifically the right hand side. It had never happened before & hasn't happened since, but over this period it happened a few times & was excruciating. I'd had my leg in a cast & was having that bored solo time when it just struck. I would've been approx 26 at this time.
After some research i believe this to be called "Coital cephalalgia". I've only ever had this through ********** though, never through sex.
Around 2010-2011 i got what i thought was a migraine once per week each week for months & months & months. Always followed a set pattern - always on a weekday, usually but not restricted to the start of the week & always in the afternoon, coming on around lunch time.
The first time i ever got a migraine i was 23 in 2006. Migraine tablets had always fixed them, but these ones seemed unfixable. No amount of tablets i took would get rid of the pain - only time.
I saw my GP who gave me preventer tablets. The headaches/migraines are no longer as frequent, although i do still get them.
I am currently suffering from this. I will get a pulsing headache at the same point in my head, every single day. It's not painful, it's more annoying than anything. Always on the right side, always towards the front of my head is the worst part, but i can feel it towards the back. Sometimes behind my eye. It's essentially the same area as the first, except nowhere near as bad.
I get this for large periods of the day. Tablets don't change anything.I haven't found a trigger.
I don't know if these are linked or it's just coincidence.
I will be seeing my GP, but i wanted to discuss this on here in case others had the same. I don't know whether it's diet related (it's not great but not bad either), or whether there's something more serious as the cause.
I'm now 29, i'm male, 5ft11, 82kg. I don't smoke, i barely drink (maybe 1 or 2 bottles every couple months or so).
