Hi, welcome to our site. I am Dr Saumya Mittal, MD.
Read your query. That is a very significant question and i appreciate your problem. I will try my best to answer your query
The pulsating headache is most commonly seen in the condition called migraine
. that is the most common cause of headache and causes headaches
of variable intensities and of variable duration. The headaches may or may not be asscoiated with symptoms like photophobia
, vomitting etc.
The xray of the skull is not going to tell us much, in fact most neurologists dont even order it anymore. What you need is an MRI of the brain, or at least a Ct scan
if the cost is a factor. And this may be a normal study in migraine. Why I am suggesting it is so that we do not miss another diagnosis, as the location of your headache is mildly atypical to migraine and SOL can cause similar problems
(SOL- Space occupying lesions)
I hope this helps you. Inform the reports mentioned above/if any other so I can be of help further.
