Hi, Im new here and been getting these terrible headaches for about 3 years now.A visit to a new doc gave me a name for this headache problem.When I first started getting them I thought it was a wisdom tooth that I never had pulled out that was giving me this pain.Well, had it yanked but that did not do it.I been suffering for almost 3 years now,only to be releived from Excedrin For Migraines.Recently they have been at their worst,mornings afternoons and evenings(yup they wake me up too).My pain starts in the same area(right upper jaw)always and then my whole right side of head(especially behind eye and inner ear)hurts terribly.My right eye waters and turns red,my nose starts to run,and I beg for mercy til the Excedrin kicks in(about 15 mins.).Tonite I tried Benadryl and I think it warded off the headache because it never got too bad.New doc said to try Benadryl.Sorry so long but Im happy to have found this board cause nobody believes my headaches are worse than "thiers".
