I have had a severe headache, how to get rid of it ?

I have had a severe headache for the last 7 weeks now that won't ever go away. I wake up and go to sleep with it. I have gotten several shots in the rear for migraines and one shot that just put me to sleep. I have gotten an MRI which turned out to be normal. I am now seeing a neurologist who wants a more in depth MRI and blood work. I have thalassemia. could this be why I am having these headaches ? I just want them to stop, no matter what they give me it doesn't help. I just want a break in the headaches if nothing else

Hi.. Uncontrollable  headaches have to be completely evaluated, and your neurologist is right in getting these scans.. There are wide varieties of pain killers available in various forms.. If no painkiller  help, opioid analgesics are the last resort. You may need them if there is no relief from the ordinary pain killers.. Unfortunately these are prescription only drugs and hence you may need to consult your doctor...
