Brief Answer:
Needs proper investigations to find out cause.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
From the symptoms it can be primary headache like migraine or sinus headache if she is having any cold or sinus congestion.
Other possible causes could be:
- Headache related to infection/post infection
- Temporal arteritis / tension type headaches.
- Cervical spondylosis
She can take tablet Tylenol 600mg/ Acetaminophen twice a day for now after meals for symptomatic relief. Avoid temperature extremes. Drink plenty of fluids and consume plenty of fruits and vegetables.

If the symptoms do not improve and she has worsening of headache, consult at Headache clinic for careful examination and to obtain more specific prescription medication.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

I respect your answers but she has been seeing all different medical specialists for a couple of years. And on numerous heavy duty prescription medicines!She is way passed the suggestions that you wrote. She just continues to get worse! She has an appt scheduled for a headache clinic in Phila, PA in 2 weeks but she is having difficulty functioning now! 2 weeks is along time to be in such excruciating pain! Could you PLEASE forward my original letter that I submitted to you with this one, to a Neurologist and an Infectious Disease doctor for their opinions! Symptoms: SEVERE headache every day, burning inside of head, can drift into a dream like state but she is aware of when it's happening, can't get her head in any comfortable position to sleep, feels like something is moving from side to side as she moves. facial pressure, weakness in neck, legs, occasional chest pain the list goes on... She also lives with 2 cats. Greatly appreciated!
