Maybe you are having a migraine? Sometimes they can last for days with a horrible throbbing sensation. I have read that certain foods or tension can trigger them. I am a migraine sufferer myself for 20 years now. I cannot take anti-imflammatory drugs like Advil or Ibuprophen because I have Diverticulitus, an intestinal disorder. I have had best results by going to a chiropractor for an adjustment. My headaches seem to stem from my neck and shoulder area, probably from stress and tension. My problem though is often I will wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning with these awful headaches, when the chiropractor is closed. So I have a prescription from my Primary Doctor for Valium 10 mg, of which I take with 2 Tylenol when this happens. Usually this pill combo will work, but when it does not I head for the chiropractor for relief. By the way, my Primary Doctor does not believe in chiropractors, but in my case I can vouch it works!
