thanks so much for the response.
im going to the doctor today actually,this has been going on for a week and im fed up.
its like the veins in my temples right behind my hairline above my ear on the left side are swollen and i can feel them and i get this pressure feeling like the blood is not flowing properly through the veins or something.
im sure this cant be normal and its not something ive always had and just discovered.
when i first had these symptoms last monday,i called the doctor and he gave me a pain medication and .25 of tafil(Xanax) and said to follow this treatment for 7 days and that it just sounds like a tension headache or even could be a hormonal thing.
i hope it is just that but the vein stuff scares me.
i will let you know what happens after seeing the doctor.
