So I've had this huge migraine from monday to wednesday and then it kinda stopped, but when I woke up thursday morning it was back and now it's friday and it's still here. It feels like my brain is too big for my skull and it is pressing on my eye, like I have really bad pain from my neck, all the way over the right side of my head and over my eye. I've felt really nauseous too, but that kinda comes and goes.
I was diagnosed with migraine maybe six years ago. My father and brother have it too, but mine is worse than theirs, so my mom thinks I should get a head scan because the migraines keep me from going to school. I'm very sensitive to light and sound when I have it.

Do you think it could be something else? And should I be worried that it has been going on for this many days?

To you have prescribed medication? A scan is always good to rule out other things but with your family history it is most likely a migraine. I am not well versed though. I was given triptans for migraine and it works well even if you are currently having one.
