I have had a continuous headache for 6 full months now. Pain goes from a 2-3 to a 6-7 throughout the day and night. It is worse in the mornings, and if I strain or bend over. Sometimes get lightheaded after that, and there is a whooshing in my head. Nausea, pain is located all over my forehead and head area, but not my face. Sinuses checked out, had a CT w/contrast and a corotid ultrasound, all good except for a small calcification in the brain. My symptoms mimic a brain tumor, except I am not vomiting. Next is a lumbar puncture to look for increased craniospinal fluid, followed by a sleep study. Anyone out there been diagnosed with too much spinal fluid? anyone have a non stop 24/7 headache from sleep apnea?

Welcome to the forum.

You didn't mention what doc is ordering the tests. Are you seeing a neurologist? Are you comfortable with this doc? If not I would see about changing. Finding one at a major hospital.

I wish you the best

Have you had any help? I have a similar problem although it has been 15 months straight now :/ nauseous, tired. Otherwise healthy, but these migraines are killing me. Trying some new meds right now but nothing seems to break the cycle
