For the last 90 days, I have had a strange headache that feels like a vice around the back of my head and neck. It's not brutal pain but certainly discomforting. I have been to my doctor three times and he has prescribed everything from antidepressants to aspirin with caffeine. Nothing, including aspirin or pain relievers, seem to work. The pain extends to my neck and feels sore like inflammation. Next Monday, I'm going to a neurologist who is allegedly a headache expert. I'm perplexed by all of this. I don't feel depressed but admittedly am in the most stressful stage of my career. Perhaps that's it. The only thing that works is a few drinks. I drink a few beers and the pain does subside. Regardless, I had to join this forum to see if I'm crazy or if anybody has any advice for me.
