the charecteristic headache is a constant one sided pain usually in the back of the eye which often starts within two or three hours of falling aleep .or in other cases any time of the day.the pain is intense and steady and is associated with tearing of the eye,a blocked nostril,on the same side,often followed by the nose running.the eye lid may also droop, the face may flush and the cheek may swell. the pain lasts a variable amount of time ,sometimes as little as an hour.but frquently for much longer. does any of this sound familliar to any of you?
