It could be mirgrains...i know thats how i started about 5 years ago. i was in school and my head just started pounding, i took advil when i came home but the dull headache then lasted 5 days. i went to my doctor, he gave me Immatrex [nose spray, but they also have a pill] it worked in about 20 mins.

My doctor then gave me Inderal La 120mg [once a day] to pervent me from getting mirgrains. I have been mirgrain free for about 3 years, i still get a headache or two but not as bad as what i use to get.

So i would talk to your doctor about that. Also it could be your eyes. Do you wear glasses? Or if not, then maybe you need to get glasses, and your eyes keep straining to focus which can cause headaches like that.

I have started having them the week of my period when I'm off the pill, and I never had headaches in my life!! They are bad and Tylenol, Alleve, etc dont get rid of them.
Migraines supposedly have this aura thing and are much more severe and debilitating... so what works on bad headaches that arent migraines?

Mirgrains are not always that servere...
When I use to get them, yes on occasion I use not to be able to do anything, but then there were other times when I still went on with my life.

My suggestion would be to go to your doctor, he/she would prescribe you probably something stronger to make your headaches go away. He/She might even send you for a ct scan just to make sure everything is ok there...

Like I said mirgrains are all different...some are not as bad, and some really pack a punch.
