Our son has had an abrupt, severe headache for 15 days with no prior headaches before. No drugs seem to ease the pain when the headache goes from a normal one to an unbelievably painful one, raising his blood pressure to dangerous levels. He has had extensive neurological tests and nothing shows. He had a test that is positive for Lyme Disease, but the neurologist thinks it might be a false positive because it is only March and ticks aren't out in Minnesota until around May. Our son has no other symptoms, except the headache and neck stiffness. He has been miserable and very depressed. Can anyone help us? Could it be Lymes? We started him on antibiotics although we won't get the results of the second test for another week. He has been hospitalized 7 times in the last two weeks. He's never been sick before. The headaches start with no warning, with instant, extreme pain and have lasted 12 hours,then dulling to a normal headache and then flaring to extreme pain again. Please help if you can.
