whats causing my headaches
i'm 23 year old and have persistent headaches they last anything up to 5 weeks at a time, for the most part they are dull aching concentrated behind my eyes, they then come on very strong with migrane like symptoms and occassionally with debilitating pain like i'm being stabbed in the head. my concentration is lapse and i have difficulty remembering things, forget i've done things or even sometimes i have trouble remembering words. my doctor has said they are stress headaches but i get them even when i'm not under stress, i am on medication which had reduced the frequency and duration until recently. can anyone help me?

Hello.

These could be cluster headaches. The extent to which cluster headaches can be severe almost touches that of Migraine. You will need to something extra. The routine medicines will not give you complete relief. There are reports that magnesium supplementation helps.
