Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Sever headache for ten days continuously definitely needs all kinds of investigations including an MRI of head. Either this can be psychological in origin or there definitely is a pathology inside. Still meanwhile try OTC pain killers fro relief and have plenty of water.

Hi Gurinder Kaur Bedi,
I need following information before I can help you:
Your menstrual cycle and any relation of your MC with your headache.
Any past history of Migraine
Test for refractory error
Pathological Tests like Complete Blood Count, Urine (RM), S. Creatinine
Radiological Tests like CT / MRI Scan
If nothing comes positive a PSYCHIATRIST may help you with a probable diagnosis of CHRONIC DAILY HEADACHE.

Hi,
There are several region for headache. It may be due to weak eye sight, migrain, acidity, sinusitis, exertion, heat etc. In homoeopathy side you can try Natrum mur 30 - daily 2 drops 3 times.
Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
hello,
it may be related to ur menstrual cycleor any refractory error of eye,or history of migrain,sometimes tension headache,it may be closely associated with depression and anxiety.individuals with chronic tension-type headache are most likely to be awakened in the early morning hours due to the headache pain.most common types of morning headaches usually are not serious but may occur again and again. These are often caused by stress and emotional strain.at last there may b requirement of mri for any cns pathology.so better to consult a dr. and get evaluated for all these.

Hello Doctor, Last few days (about a week or or 10 days), I have been having severe headache right between my eyebrows. Could this be stress headache? When I get this headache, I am unable to relax and feel very tense and that aggrevates the pain..what remedy options exist for this kind of headache? Thanks in advance.

I have been getting some paralyzing headaches to the middle of my forehead and just above my eyebrow. If I touch this area it intensifies. I am wondering if I need to make an appointment with my doctor? This is the 4th week and they seem to be getting more painful. I guess my main concern is a stroke..... I just turned 31 and my health is good. I have been having anxiety and heavy stress over the last few years. I don t have high blood pressure the last I knew. Please help Thanks Matt Z.

Hello,
I am a 38 yo white heathly attractive male who masturbates at least twice a day or more. I am not promiscuous, not as in my younger days...now I just watch internet porn or think about it. I Love sex and have since I can remember back to five years old playing with girls. I expected the intesity to lessen with age, but I have come to find out it is not and I am more and more beginning to embrace my nature as it seems this is how I am wired. Will the fire ever subside?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
