   Recently, i have developed a wierd headache. Im 18 and usually dont have many headaches. Its not there in the morning, and usually comes shortly after. I have had it for about 8 days now, and its really annoying.  Its not throbbing pain like, but more light headed and fuzzy and tingly. The only time it gets throbby is when its in the back of my head, or sometimes to one side or the other. I have looked all over the internet for other people with symptoms like this, and have not found many.  There are however, a few.  For them, either people didnt respond, or was just told to see a doctor (of course).  If it means anything, i just recently quit taking a preworkout supplement loaded with caffiene that i took everyday, and was taking NO supplements before they came.
     Im kinda freaking out, cause my right eye gets a little blurry depending on how my heads doing.  For you few people out there looking for answers, i feel for you.  I --PROMISE--   that once i find out whats wrong, how to treat it, or how long this is going to last, im going to make a web page consisting of nothing but this story, and those answers, and try to  make it show up towards top of google search somehow..    to help you out 
      I was on here earlier today, looking for similiar problems, and ran across a 15 years old kid that had an annoying headache for like 6 months that also didnt know whats wrong, and even had blood running out of nose a bit, at least i think.  Now how sad is that.  Man, now i understand, and i just want to cure every last one of us..  if only i could.  I would see a doctor, but i recently had to drop a college class, and my insurance doesnt cover ppl who arent full time students.   For you people out there, best of luck, and ill help any way i can.
   BTW, if anybody out there does have a similar problem like mine, any info would be appreciated :-)    thanks, Brandon.

Hi Brandon, welcome to Healing Well. I hope that others come along soon to post here. Have you talked to your doctor about this? I would definitely talk to a neurologist and I would also go to your optometrist and discuss it. Google Opthamology migraine. It sounds a little like that. The neurologist is your best bet. They don't just deal with migraine and this could be something else. Thank you for compassionate words to everyone here. I hope that you feel better soon. Let us know how you are doing.

Hi Brandon,

Welcome from me too. If you have been taking high doses of caffeine for a while and then stop, you will get a headache from that! It's like if you always drink strong coffee all the time and then suddenly decide to go decaff you will get a headache!!

However, that said, it is still worth getting a Doctor to check it out. I understand that money is an issue here but maybe someone else will be along to advise you about that as here in the UK things are very different!

Please let us know how you get on. Take care

Hi Brandon,

Welcome again. :-)

I agree with Annuk and hopefulmigrainer, I would visit a doctor. Anytime you suffer from a headache that is new or changes it is a good idea.

My optic nerve is generally involved in my migraines and the blood vessel that expands puts pressure on it, making everything blurry and I often lose partial sight.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the comments! Ive actually decided to see a docter in two days, and probably have them do a blood test or something. I was looking for stuff up last night, and i realized that since i started getting the headache, ive been spending way more time on the computer, like at least around 5 or 6 hours a day. Another thing, when i wake up i feel fine, but the headaches usually follow after i look around. So one theory i have, is it could of started off with caffiene withdrawel and now it turned into some crazy eyestrain, because lately i found that after being on the computer alot, its harder to change focus and the headache gets worse afterwards. It sounds better than the other option i found at least, which was like bleeding in the brain, and brain surgery and all that. lol Thanks again, and ill also ask while im there about all the stuff you all brought up. Ill let you know the results in a couple days. Thanks again.

hey, done with all the docters, done with bloodtests, everythings a.o.k. best of all.. no more headaches! i know none of you prolly care, but this is mainly for those who might be searching for these symptoms. First, i do believe the NO for the wieghts made my eye temporarly blurry. I read around more, and this isnt too uncommon. It causes an increase in blood pressure to one, whether it be the right, left, or both. I been off the stuff since posting the first message and my eyes are good. second, i do believe the headaches were a mix between caffiene withdrawel, and eye strain. I laid off the caffiene, and it helped, but once i stared at things further away for a couple of days and let my eyes relax, i could focus way better and now im back to normal. for those wondering, it lasted about 2.5 weeks, but dont worry if you think this is the case, drink plenty of water and lay off the caffiene and get out more. like, dont be wasting away the whole day on the computer like i did. anyways, if anybody has anymore questions, feel free to send an email. good luck and live well! p.s, about the google thing in the first post, i actually googled my symptoms a few more times, and they appeared at the top. :)

You should definately see a doctor! Do you think it's possible that you may need glasses? It's just a thought I had while reading your post.
