Severe Headaches

I have always had very severe headaches. There has been countless times where it will hurt to the point that all i can do is lay there and cry and it makes me nauseus. These come on unexpectadly and usually the pain moves from the front of my head to the sides. This pain never really hurts all over, usually just in one certain spot horribly bad. The past week or so I have had this aching pain in my head, behind my eyes and nose and it feels like something is pressing from the inside of my face. Earlier today I got a very sharp pain that felt like somebody stabbed me in the brain for about .5 seconds. Any ideas what these could be? Just migraines, or something more.

Hi.

Have you had these types of headaches before or is this a sudden and recent onset headache?

I suggest that you have a consult with an ENT specialist. Firstly, conditions that may be causing the headaches need to be identified and ruled out first before a diagnosis of a migraine and tension headaches be given. Sinus problems may present with a heavy pain over the forehead. Eye problems may also present similarly. Involvement of these structures need to be excluded first.

Watch out for any warning signs like vomiting, loss of balance, weakness and increase in pain severity.

Do you have any history of allergies ?

I have had severe headaches for as long as i can remeber but i always tried over the counter drugs and for awhile they worked. recently they do not help when i get these headaches. Migraines run in my family, my mother father and brother all get them.

the last week or so i have had more of a sinus headache with the behind the nose/eye region pressure, which i have never had before, but it goes off and on. I think this is completely different then my usual headaches, but i have just gotten a medicine that seems to make this better.


i have no history of allergies.

Hi,
How are you? Sinus headache usually presents with gnawing pain over nasal area, often increasing in severity throughout day. This can be due to an acute infection. Other symptoms include fever, producing blockage of sinus ducts and preventing normal drainage. Migraine and cluster headaches are often misdiagnosed as sinus in origin.  Have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Antibiotics  may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.

Hi,
How are you? Try to drink plenty of fluids and over-the-counter decongestants to help provide relief. If it persists, you may need antibiotic management as well. Sinus headaches are often due to an infection, nasal polyps, or anatomical deformities, such as a deviated septum, that block the sinus ducts. If it persists, you may need further evaluation by your doctor. Take care and best regards.
