I am new here but have been a migraine sufferer for many years. Does anyone get a pressure type/headache in the back of their head? Mine has been starting in the mornings after moving around and I will get dull throbbing behind eyes. Also, worse when bending over or after moving from sitting for a bit.

I have been to a Neurologist and after a thorough office exam, he wanted to put me on Immitrex. Also had an eye exam, all was good. I have an appt. with ENT next week but did not know if this sounds more migraine related or tension or sinus?

Does not feel like an infection as does pass as the day goes on or comes and goes.

Thank you for reading and any input you may have.

Sorry, but you need to see a doc to rule out other possibilities.

Hi Susan I also have morning headaches in back of head/neck. At first no pain then within first hour the pain starts. I take nabutome tabs 750 mg but only 3 days in a row. Also use Lorzone tablets but find they are not effective at all. The nabutome does kick the back of head pain very nicely. Pain in the front of my head I use Zomig which also works very nicely. Figuring out your migraines is a tough journey. I hope you get some relief soon.
