What I am experiencing sounds nothing like what all you are suffering from. Mine dont sound as bad as all of yours.
My name is Cari and I am 25. I have been suffering from headaches my whole life(at least as far back as I can remember).My Doctor told me I suffer from Cluster headaches.
Here is what I think causes them. When I was very small my mother put me in my highchair, She walked away to do something and the highchair collapsed and I ended up with a hairline skull fracture.Maybe this is what is causing my headaches.
My doctor had me taking an Antidepressant and a Bloodpressure Pill along with painkillers like Vicodine and Fiorcet. Needless to say they didnt work to good.
I stoped taking the medication because we are trying to have a baby. Any advice for relieving the pain without medications.
Here is what triggers my Headaches. Strong smells like too much Perfume or Strong Candles, too much or not enough sleep Bright lights( especially the sun I have to wear sunglasses no matter what). Sometimes I get one for no reason.

Any advice out there?
