Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your symptoms.
I agree that your headaches
are most likely due to tension headache
. Yes, tension headaches can last for up to six weeks or even longer.
You should be on preventive medications such as Amitriptyline
tablets. For pain relief, you can take ibuprofen
In addition to tension headache, we should also consider a diagnosis of temporal arteritis
. A blood test ESR
could be helpful. If ESR is elevated, it could be indicative of temporal arteritis- an inflammation of temporal artery
I hope it helps.
