Since January of this year, Ive been experiencing strong headach

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?

8.43am 18 April 2012 To whom it may concern: Hello, Doctor

8.43am18 April 2012To whom it may concern:Hello, Doctor my name isXXXXX and I chatted to you a few times in the past about the ringing in my ears. I do have a question but before I ask it I want to give you a description of what's been happening for the past 7 days. What happened is: I was listening to music for about 45 minutes through my desktop computer speakers. The music wasn't overly loud but I started to get ringing in the ears. I realise this is sound induced tinnitus. I have had it since last Saturday 7th April 2012. I woke up on early Thursday morning at about 1 am and it had completely disappeared, this is about 4 days after it first started. It did come back on Friday morning. I went to bed on Friday night (13/04/12) and got up around 5am Saturday morning (14/04/12) & the ringing had cleared up once again. It did start to come back on Saturday afternoon around 2:00 pm and stayed until about 6:00 pm Sunday night (15/04/12). I took a shower, on Sunday night, and noticed the ringing had cleared up again, but there was a little noise, but not much. When I awoke on Monday morning there was no ringing. I had my ears tested on Monday morning (16/04/12) at 9:15 am and there was no hearing loss. My hearing was very good. Monday night (16/04/12) I went for a walk along the bike tracks, because it's very quiet and noticed that there was no head noise. I went to bed that night and it was ok. I awoke early that morning at 1:00 am and it had returned. I started to chat to another doctor, on line, and it started to clear up again. I went to bed at 2:00am and there was no head noise. I woke up 6:00 am on Tuesday morning (17/04/12) and it was back then 25 minutes later the volume of the noise did decrease. As I worked in the office, yesterday, it cleared up again at 10:00 am for about 30 minutes & then again at 1:00 pm for about an hour. I was in bed last night and around 9:00 pm it cleared up again for about 60 to 90 minutes. It then came back. I am currently back in the office with the head noise. It isn't overly loud but it is a little louder than yesterday.Doctor I can see that this condition has been clearing up intermittently. Why does it keep coming back?Is it that this “tinnitus” is running its course to clear up once and for all?Ps: I think the condition was worse last week. The noises aren't so intense as they were.I apologise to keep contacting you, but I am curious.Yours faithfullyJohn
