First of all let me start off by saying I am just curious as to what type of headache's that I have. The reason why I came here is because I previously took a quiz on another site and it stated that my symptons were more close to CH then any other.

Now Jonny you though it was kind of ridiculous (Im terrible at speeling sorry) that pushing on the temple hurt worse...I didn't mean that it hurt worse...for some strange reason it makes me fell less of the pain from the actual headache if I do this. I also tend to put alot of pressure in other areas of my face to make the pain go away.

Here is a little more information on the headache...I recall someone mentioning that CH aren't usually pulsating but steady....well mine are defiently a steady hard pulsating feeling sometimes. Most of the time its this unbeleivable pain that feels untolerable. I have passed 2 kindney stones in my life and I can honestly say that I have had some of these headache's that feel way worse...although its a different type of pain. I didn't really mention anything about running noses or droopy eyes mainly because I really didn't think this was a major issue....hell I much rather have that than the headache. THe headache is always above my right eye and for a long time I thought there was something wrong with my eye because of the fact that it was above it and it would droop when getting the headache....in fact my right eye has kinda grown a permanent droop to it...its not very noticable...but people your around all your life (like my parents) have noticed. Just last night I had one around 4:00am in the morning...I woke up went to the bathroom popped 3 IB profen in the mouth and paced the house with my arm wrapped around my head trying to make the pain go away...I can't personally say that I have banged my head to make it fell better because I am to scared to do anything like that...that could possible make it worse.

And Jonny I take the pills because I fear that if I don't they will last longer...I have never once tried waiting the headache out to see if the medicine makes it better or not...like I said Its almost like a routine for me and I do what I have to do to make it better...I'm not sure what makes it stop...but I am not willing to change my "routine" as we speak because the pain is so bad.

I will try to be as humble as I can about this because I really can't say how bad the pain is. If I had to compare it then I would say there is nothing more worse that I personally have experienced pain wise then this...and I can say I have personally had things done to me that are pretty painful ...and they are nothing compared to this. I'm not going to say that my headchaes are worse then so and so because for all I know I may be a total pussy compared to what you guys experience...I just want them to stop.

I appreciate the advise of seeing a neuro...but man that scares the hell out of me. I fear that I may actually have a tumor or whatever...but man these headaches have progressivly got worse the past year. Its really weird...I will sometimes go a whole week without one...and then bam they hit me and they hit hard. I can't tell you how many times this year I have been late to work because I woke up 3-5 times in one night from multiple headaches.

Anyway sorry for the long post. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow and I'm going to ask about this a ask if I can see a specialist. Also I'm thinking about documenting my headaches.....see if theres any pattern at all. I have personally tried quiting smoking....drinking caffine ect....nothing helps.
