After 3.5 weeks of these headaches that seem to match all the symptoms mentioned here, I think I am a victim, yes and that's what it feels like. I was getting an MRI on Christmas Eve in the emergency room in hope there was some other problem. 2 days later, I totally felt releived of all the symptoms and felt I had "got over it", that is what I thought it was. Well Thursday morning, 12/30 about 6:00, one woke me up and they've been on every since.
The more I think about it, I had an occurance back in Feb. 1993, and I did not know what it was at the time, but now after researching this site and remembering the symptoms and how they kicked my butt. I know that's what it was now. And I think they are back. I have been taking migraine over the counter drugs such as Exederin, and anything else I can find and they (the drugs) seem to have varying results. Either way, I'm not sure how to feel about these Headaches, it's very depressing and it seems like there is nothing to do but bare them. I'm sure the episode will go away, to only return.

But like many have said, I'm always thinking of the next ones that are on there way. Being a computer profession and commuting 70 miles one-way daily, I did wonder what part does this may also play in these headaches. Well until 3.5 weeks ago. I was fine, so I do not solely feel this is the reason or even part of.

Well, there is one now just here lingering. This is hard having to be a system analysis, it just hurts to think about the headaches and my job at the same time. Not sure what to do. It's pretty sad when you're considering doing something else that does not require you think as hard. Now how strange does that really sound.

Thanks for all the posts. They do help.
