Hello all. I am looking for advice on this. I have had a headache for 7 days now. At first, I thought it was maybe allergy/sinus related, but I have been to my ENT and he has given me the "all clear" now. It typically has been in the front left side of my head, and forehead, and other than a few hours relief on Friday it has been constantly present since last week. At-best, it has been a dull throbbing headache,but there are times where there is shooting pain all the way down the back of my head into the base of my brain/skull area accompanied with nausea/dizziness.

I have been a migraine sufferer for my entire life but this is like nothing I have experienced before.

I cannot get in to see the neurologist for two more weeks, but I am really nervous about this. Does anyone think I should go to the ER or to an urgent care center? At least they can take some scans/xrays, etc..., right? Or do i just take the appointment 2 weeks away and suffer through it?

If if gets to bad, go to the ER for relief. Sounds like you might be getting trigmeninal neuralia, usually on the tight side, but will present on the left.

Also you may be getting cluster headaches, again, most of the times on right, but can go on left side.

It is worth the trip to the ER for relief. Trust me.
