For the last three or so years I've had a chronic daily headache. It's mostly localized to my left temple and the vein there throbs like crazy. I think it could be a migraine, but I'm not really sure because I don't really have any of the major symptoms.
It's not incapacitating, and if I have to do work I can usually struggle through it. I also don't seem to have any sensitivity to light, but I sometimes loud sounds can affect it. Furthermore, I never get nauseous, nor do I have any auras, although I do have small Scotoma like patches that move around, but they're not really very noticeable. It's also probably worth mentioning that when I exercise the pain usually gets better, not worse, although once or twice my pain has increased while exercising.
My headache can usually be fixed by taking Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or Excedrin, or drinking coffee. It also seems to get better when I drink water.
Does anybody know what this could be? Is it a migraine, a tension headache, or something else?
