User :   hello?
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help u
User :   i already typed it haha...
User :   Every day for the past 6 days, I have had anywhere from a mild to an extreme, pulsating headache in, under, and around my right eye lasting anywhere from 2 to 8 hours. Some symptoms were not present on certain days, but the third day included all of them: Redness of the eye, leaking of the eye, eye feeling as if it were going to burst or pop out of the socket, sweat, low fever, flush face, nervousness, pacing back and forth, anger, weakness of a leg while walking (happens suddenly and lasts for a few seconds), soreness of throat when headache is gone, and violence (such as purposely breaking my remote control to release anger). I am 17 years old, 5'9", 135 lbs, never smoked or "drank," never touched any type of drugs, never experienced a migraine or anything worse than a casual headache, and known to have a pretty good immune system w/o being allergic to anything. In short, I'm a healthy 17 year old BOY. I believe that I might have cluster headaches. If not, then what? If so, then what should I do? If I see a doctor, what should THEY do? Thank you so much!
