headache lasting several days
My husband has had a severe headache (mainly at the top of his head) for three days.  He did cut trees in the sun so we thought it might be heat exhaustion.  He has tried tylenol, aspirin, and decongestants.  The only relief has been when he holds a towel with ice on the top of his head.  We don't have insurance but now I'm getting worried since the headache hasn't eased up.

I honestly don't really know what the best course of action to take is.  I'm so sorry you don't have health insurance.  Perhaps you could call the nurse at a clinic and they can advise you what to do.  This possibly could be a medical emergency with a brain aneurysm.  I do know that brain aneurysms can take lives.  Headaces like this could also be a tumor.  This also could just be a migraine.  I found a website that explains sympotms of a brain aneurysm.  Good luck and I hope your husband is okay.  Please keep us updated.

Symptoms of Brain Aneurysms
Ruptured Cerebral Aneurysm Symptoms
Sometimes patients describing "the worst headache in my life" are actually experiencing one of the symptoms of brain aneurysms related to having a rupture. Other ruptured cerebral aneurysm symptoms include:

Nausea and vomiting
Stiff neck or neck pain
Blurred vision or double vision
Pain above and behind the eye
Dilated pupils
Sensitivity to light
Loss of sensation

Unruptured Cerebral Aneurysm Symptoms
Before an aneurysm ruptures, patients often experience no symptoms of brain aneurysms. In about 40 percent of cases, people with unruptured aneurysms will experience some or all of the following cerebral aneurysm symptoms:

Peripheral vision deficits
Thinking or processing problems

Speech complications
Perceptual problems
Sudden changes in behavior
Loss of balance and coordination
Decreased concentration
Short-term memory difficulty
Fatigue
