Hello, I'm new here and hoping that someone can help me. For about the past six months or so Iíve been experiencing horrible headaches. They usually start out as a regular dull headache all over my head, and gradually move to one side of my head, always the right temple. Then, it throbs constantly and nothing I do can make it go away. Regular over the counter pain killers do nothing, and the ONLY way for me to make it go away is to go to sleep, and when i wake up, it's gone.
I've already been to my doctor about it and he thought they were caused by a very tight neck muscle, which he gave me a shot to relax the muscle, and left it at that. He also thought it could be my birth control pills, which i thought it might be too. But Iíve switched to three different birth control brands and nothing has changed. My headaches follow no patterns as to when they come. I usually experience at least one a week, sometimes more.
My mother thinks they might still be due to my very tight neck muscles and wants to send me to the chiropractor about it.
Has anyone else experienced these types of headaches? Or does anyone know what they might be caused by?
Thanks so much for your help
