So I'm having this weird headache, it's severe but
what's scary about it is the throbbing and bulging
veins. Specially a vein on right side (the problem
side) on forehead throbs so much sometimes and
can be touched easily. also under my right year,
on the crown, I feel the thumping. I can close my
one eye and see the bulging purple veins so
easily, that's freaking me out.Doctors don't take
it seriously. So are there specialists for this
problem. been to an eye specialist, there was
nothing wrong according to him. What kind of specialist should I see?

This sounds like a vascular issue. You might look into CCSVI. Google that. There is just a ton of info out there. It is a treatment for chronic headaches caused by poor veinous drainage in the brain.

I'm very sorry you are dealing with this. I am pretty tolerant of pain, but I am just a huge baby about headaches. You have my sympathy.

Thank you Gretchen. I googled that. Been to a Doctor and he gave me some medicine and said we'll do a CT scan if the pain isn't relieved by a week. I am still hurting though. Constant now. And I am more concerned to see the purple veins on my eye. Can't focus on work.

It has been disproven that ccsvi and ms are linked. https://beta.mssociety.ca/research-news/hot-topics-in-research/chronic-cerebrospinal-venous-insufficiency-ccsvi

I also forgot to mention Hughes Syndrome. It presents itself the same as MS and is often very difficult to differentiate.
