Okay I see. I appreciate for all these additional information.

I see you have already seen a neurologist and had a brain scan too and it sounds like neurological issues have already been ruled out in your case. I will Opt-Out and return this question back to the expert pool and give another expert who may be more familiar with this subject a chance to help you with your health situation.

Please try to avoid replying to this post, otherwise this question may get locked back to me again and prevent other experts from taking up your question.

Wishing you all the very best!

Best Regards!

- do you have feeling of nausea with headache?

- how does the pain get relieved or worsened - any particular posture has an influence?

- when did you have an eye examination done?

- was the pressure of eyes checked at that time?

- any other additional information related to the headache?
