Re: Pounding/pulsing in my head.
It was interesting to read your note about the pulsing in your head. My fiance, John, has had this same thing for a couple of years now. He also doesn't get it worse at night like so many of the other people that are on here. His symptoms are very similar to a guy on here called, I think, "pulsing head" who only wrote the once a couple of years ago. It seems to be linked with movement of his eyes which as you can imagine makes it a pretty contant thing to be going on.
He describes it as a pulse in his head that goes "szchoom, szchoom" like a light saber from star wars. When it's bad there can be up to five pulses straight after eachother and like an electric shock can shoot down his face, or down his arms or even down his whole body and down his legs.
When he first went to the doctors they gave him anti-depressants which did relieve the pulsing although after a few months, the pulsing would start at a certain time each day and would stop when he took his next tablet. John believes that there was something in the tablet that stopped the pulsing. Sometimes Paracetamol would have the same effect.
We would be very interested in how your pulsing compares.
