I am entering into the fifth month of a persistent headache. It is localized in the back left side of my head, about two inches back and slightly above my left ear. If feels like the size of a quarter. There is a throb. The throb intensifies if I'm on my feet for some time. It also has the feeling of pressure. I can pull a baseball cap down against the area and it seems to help. It is there from a few minutes after I wake up until I go to bed. It seems to ease up when I'm sitting or lying down. On a few rare occasions, my vision has been affected. I can put my finger on the exact location and, if it weren't for my skull, I feel like I could rub it.
I've had the MRI/MRA and CT scans, which were all OK. I'm scheduled for an eye appointment in December. I have a subscription for Elavil, but it doesn't help. I've read articles about New Daily Persistent Headache but I don't think I match the symptoms.
Anybody else ever experienced something similar and what treatments did you use?
