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.

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.

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I had an MRI which showed stable microvascular ischemia white matter changes without demylinization. I am a 34 year old, 284 lb woman with a hx of migraines with aura. The MRI was done because the aura prior to a migraine changed from the electrical current type to seeing tracers. For the past few months I have had chronic headaches, not just the hormonal migraines I typically see. I take Fioricet for my headaches because nothing else has seemed to work. I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol issues despite being morbidly obese. I do not have pre-diabetes or other blood sugar issues. My mother has a hx of TIA s, diagnosed when she was 40. I am still waiting for a neuro appt because the neurologist wants to review all of my medical files before setting the appointment. 1. How does the radiologist know the changes are stable when I have never had these show up on an MRI before? 2. Could this be migraine related as opposed to TIA s? 3. What can I do to prevent the changes from becoming chronic?
