7th day of headache

I am dealing with day 7 of a severe headache located on the left side of my head, predominately in the back of the head. 16 months ago I had a brain bleed on the left side ( along with clavicle and shoulder injuries ((preparing for 3rd surgery on shoulder currently. Also have a plate screwed into the left clavicle)) With no prior history of headaches, I have been having these severe attacks since the accident, but none have lasted for this many days. My doctor was made aware of them, and subsequently ran some tests, but he has never reported finding anything. Should I be concerned that this could be somehow connected with the brain injury, or do you think that enough time has passed that that wouldn't be a real connection? Thank you!

Hi!
If you had a brain bleed then even though 16 months have passed, you must get a repeat evaluation by a neurologist. Maybe a MRI will be repeated. Other than this it can be tension headache, hemicrania continua, migraine or post trauma stress headaches.
Please consult your doctor again regarding these possibilities—preferably see a neurologist as soon as possible. Hope this helps. Take care!
