Hi Mr Vineet Bansal,
Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that you have been suffering from headaches since 2010 and still, no diagnosis has been made and you are suffering due to pain.

I would like to reassure you that since your MRI and CT scans are normal, it rules out any serious underlying disease such as brain tumor, blood clots, brain infections, etc.

The likely diagnosis could be migraine or cluster headaches, which can be well treated with medications. You need to consult a neurologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
