This is my first time posting, would love any help the community can provide.
I started getting severe headaches in august. A Month straight of agony with no relief. Very severe headaches multiple times a day and also my head just hurting all day as well. Droopy eye, Runny nose, only On my left side, usually First thing in the morning and lasting all day. I had an MRI and it Came back ok, and then a week later it went away so I didn’t think anything about it.
Well 3 weeks later it returned and now it seems worse. I’ve tried to do a lot of research and reading posts, and the major inconsistency Im finding that I’d love to hear others experiences, is that I also have headaches all day long. I basically get smal attacks all day long, with some relief every once in a while. Then 2-3 times a day I get the real major attacks lasting about an hour and uncontrollable. Can’t sit still, immense pain and just nothing I can do to stop it. Ive noticed hot showers on my scalp help a bit to relieve pain in the moment, but comes back the minute I get out. Today I was prescribed Fioricet( I tried it tonight and Ive been up all night with even More pain) and I’m also going back to get an mra and ultrasound/ eeg.
Does this sound like cluster headaches based off the fact I’m also having headaches all day long? From my research it seems like these are only supposed to be a few times a day and then nothing else the rest of the day. I’m honestly thinking it could be something else now but I’m just honestly lost and desperate at this point.
Appreciate any help you can provide.
