Re: headache on the right side behind my eye down the back of my neck
No cause for concern, its one of many Evil Headaches. Ive had them all my life so they only bother me as far as pain anymore. Generally I keep several kinds of headache medicine around, for all the various ridiculously painful headaches I get. Usually they work, sometimes they dont.
And Tammy1973: Im not a doctor, but trust me on this one: If you had anything in your head like a tumor, or any sign of brain swelling at all, they wouldve recognized it from your CAT scan. Because of the sheer danger of such conditions, it is not often overlooked. While it wont make the pain stop, it will be ridiculously unlikely for such things to not be noticed in a CAT scan. Like, youd need a whole chain of idiocy, from the lab technicians, developers, and doctors for that to happen.
Headaches like that are ridiculously painful yes. but almost definetly a mundane concern. For instance, I started getting migraines when i moved from west and midwest deserts to the humid southeast any time it rained. Never had migraines before. Look for common things when the worst ones come. You'll likely find a few.
But really, calm down. I know i hate hearing this as much as you do, but it is literally in your head (That was a lame joke and I apologize...Still gonna post it though.) Seriously though, sinus and ear problems are much much more likely to cause it, especially with a clean CAT scan. So relaxing as much as you can is the best thing for you at this point.
It hurts terribly and it sucks to no small degree. My migraines actually make me throw up if they go on too long. With the huge amount of pain these damnable things cause, you really need to relax and worry about stopping the pain in a responsible (and most importantly) calm way. The pain is suffering enough, dont need to be scared along with it!
Also stop looking at the monitor when it happens. Light triggers are astoundingly common for this pain.
