Throbbing Nuisance

Hi...I am a 52 year old female.  For the past 6 months I have been getting throbbing pains in the top left of my head and sometimes in combination of the top on the left side.  The pain is almost like a pulsating pain that travels to the eyes. Can you assist?

Any recurrent, throbbing, *one-sided* headache that is also felt in the eye area has the possibility of being a migraine.  The one-sided-ness is the big clue.

Google 'migraine headache', and you may find a lot of help.

You may want to get checked out by your GP, and get an Xray of the area.
I get headaches daily, sinus related, I take a couple of Excedrins for it. I also have some fioricet that I take in the morning occationally, to "get ahead" of the headaches. once mine start, they are miserable. My primary concern and certainly most recently has been heart rhythm. Take care.
