I will explain this as short but as best I can... Sometimes I get what I call "labor head pains"...What I mean is it starts without any warning (even waking you up at night but can happen anytime)...and the pain is light to moderate then increases slowly over about 2-5 minutes gets to semi-severe lasts about 10 minutes or so... then the pain will slowly go back down to tolerable level but never leaves...then about 5-10 minutes later it starts to build again but each time that it goes from the receding semi-tolerable pain(at first) and builds back up again...the pain gets much worse until you think your brains are gonna come out of your head, ears, eyes etc... when it first starts it is in the eye,side of face and head (only one side)...but as time goes on and this continues it will eventually feel like your whole head is SEVERELY hurting....and you can't tell where the pain starts at etc...also as this continues to happen the receding parts of the pain also gets worse (but isn't as bad as the peaks) and never leaves....this can go on for minutes or hours then will stop just as fast as it started... but you feel like your head was in a vise grip and will start another cycle again without warning....these "cycles" as I call them can go from just a one time deal to anywhere up to 4 months and several times daily....

Does anyone else get this??? What do you do for it???

This is seriously what I can only imagine labor to feel like.... Any suggestions... Thanks Jackie L.
