My husband (age 43) has just recently started having severe head pain on the side of his head. The pain starts out as pressure similar to a spring pushing against his head, it gradually increases to a stabbing pain/piercing pain. He ends up taking several OTC pain pills, and after a short time it subsides, only to return again a few hours later. These headaches worsen when he smells a strong odor or is lying down.
My husband also suffers from Parkinson's Disease brought on by head trauma as a young adult.
What kind of headache is this and what can be done to help?
