Since January of this year, I've been experiencing strong headaches. In January, I went to the ER for it and they did a CT and MRI and came back normal. They did a spinal tap and they had found some white cells. So they kept me for about 5 days, just giving me pain medication. They thought it could of been meningitis but it wasn't a clear conclusion. So I got a family doctor and he has put me on anti depressants, steroids,anti seizure medication and still no improvement. I get about 3-4 a week and some last for days and with intensive pain. At first they started at the temples, then it moved to my occipital area, and now I feel them all over my head. recently i've felt pain behind my eyes (sometimes my vision gets blurry) and just very recently I get electrical like sensations that only last for a few seconds. I don't know what I should do next?
Lately yes. Most mornings I wake up with a headache like this morning. From time to time I will get dizzy. When I bend over or laying on my belly--I feel a lot pressure in my head almost feels like blown balloon. Nausea yes. Vertigo no, Flashing lights no, Yes to throbbing headache with tinnitus. I am on the patch, I started getting the headaches before I was put on the patch. I haven't noticed any change with menstruation. No other systemic diseases.
