I have had the same type of headache since I was around 7 years old.  it always starts at the base of my skull and radiates around  the left side of my head and behind my left eye and sometimes becomes so intense that I can only lay down and even that is painfull.  I've only thrown up once because of a headache.  These headaches can last up to a  week or more and I haven't been able to find a patern or trigger.  I don't have insurance and have to go to a low income clinic for my health care.  I have asked about it and they always tell me it's just a tension headache but the  only thing I seem to be tense about is the headaches.  any help would be appreciated
just another newbie trying to sponge some info, lol.

but if it wasnt a low income clinic they would help you better. Which i had a low income clinic here though. I think there is one 2 hours away one day a week for like 3 hours. Try changing your diet, dont smoke if you do, try exercising more even if it is just a little. Take a multi everday and cal mag before bed
