Brief Answer:
Does not seem to be more serious than a complex headache

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Since the MRI is negative I think that there is not much to worry about and I would not consider it anything more than a complex headache. Please note that acupuncture has been shown to be effective in reducing migraines and complex headaches and I would suggest that you give it a try.

Let me know if I could help further.
