My husband has been suffering with a severe headache for 8 weeks now, we have visited accident and emergency twice and been refered now for a CT and MRI scan by his neurologist. In the mean time he saw an ENT consulatant who ruled out problems with sinuses etc and we saw an opthamologist too. As the wait is so long here for a scan we went private. The MRI brain scan was normal (thank god) but his pain continues, it is continuous 24 hours with a sore strip on the left side of his head and pressure behind the eye on bending. Trigeminal neuralgia has been mentioned but the pain is more of a pulsating type than sharp. He has been prescribed, Dosulepin, Co-codamol 30/500, Diclofenac SR and Domperidone. Please, do you have any ideas?? I would appreciate your advice greatly.
