the kind of headache pain and the intensity and does anyone ever ask a doctor if he/she is aware of the various headaches? This one point alone caused me years of pain that could have been greatly eased. First you have to be able to communicate your pain and if the doctor looks at you like you are nuts, better find another doctor. I have done this at a medical research library, much easier today with the net, made photocopies and showed them to my doctor and said this is me. Still the while ass guessing schemes for treatment, also closely observing yourself to learn what conditions make your headache worse. Over the years, I have learned and this is just me, the least meds I take, the better, can honestly state that 98% of the medications I was put on have caused more grief than relief.

Cluster deal with the swelling and plugging of the nasal passages and a sharp ripping like constant pain from the eye rearward and can include the ear and teeth, are normally one sided, but can also be on both sides. Your pounding drilling pain seems different but I can't be the judge of this, were you in an accident or on drugs? You are not alone in your experiences and I hope you can find a way.
