What could be the reason to have sudden severe headache, nausea with knee pain ?

Hi, I m a 37 year old woman, measuring 5 4, weighting 163 lb. I was dignosed with hypothyroidism 2 mths ago. I started having a severe frontal headache (around temples too) yesterday early morning (5 am) and pain and weakness in the knees, then nausea started a few hours later. Today I woke up with more symptoms, sore throat , brown discharge, I still have a headache, although not as severe as yesterday, and nausea. What could it be? Thanks.

i ve been getting severe headaches for about 5 years now. the pain starts in the middle of inside the head and pushes outward (the pressure feels like my head is going to explode) afterwards i get really nacious and start vomitting, and then i get really weak and tired. this process usually last 12-24hrs. i ve had normal headaches and migraines before and i know this is something different. light and noise do not effect the severeness of my headaches. i ve tried many medications (perscriptions and over the counter pain killers) and nothing works. what could this be?

My husband 65 years old has severe headache lasting several weeks now. His blood pressure has been as high as 190/ 105. We have been to 2 emergency rooms. Friday it was a local hospital and today we went to the VA where he gets all his medical. They have done CT scans, blood tests, chest X-ray etc. They have given him intravenously pain killer and blood pressure medicine and sent him home with hydrocodone, and a nausea drug. He is getting no relief from these medications. How do I get him some help. The only thing we think could have caused these headaches was a reaction to the dye they used in a CT scan a couple of weeks ago.
