Headaches & Migraines board


I have strange headaches that consist of very little pain, but are cold burning sensations in the back of my head and occasionally on the sides and also on my face. My scalp often crawls and tingles and is very tender. Some days it is hard to brush my hair. I also have sharp ice pick pains that shoot through my head. I very rarely experience a throbbing pain. I am never sensitive to light and never naseous, yet me doctor says that it is a migraine varient. I've searched for anyone who might be suffering from similar headaches, but have found no information whatsoever. I also suffer from GAD which isn't helping my situation. My doctor has given me numerous types of medication to try, but I can't seem to convince myself to take them. She has given me, Neurontin, Imitrex, Zomig, and Amerge. I'm afraid of having horrible side effects or even worse, dying. Has anyone had any experience with these medications or had a n experience similar to mine or have any ideas as to what I can do? Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated. I am going insane and driving my husband insane as well.
