I’ve been suffering headaches for several years. My husband insists my pain is not migraines… For the last two and a half months the pain has intensified so much that I cannot function without medication. I’ve been self-medicating with Ibuprofen, taking it about 3 times a day everyday. As soon as it wears off, the pain returns. It is a sharp, intense pain in my left temple and the left side of my neck. I can’t think or work when my head is hurting. I usually will close my left eye, like a reflex to the pain. Other symptoms include light sensitivity, nausea, difficulty concentrating and thinking in general, coordination issues, grumpiness, overall tingling and hot sensation, mind fog, and I don’t know what else. Finally went to a doctor who prescribed Imitrex. I took one and an hour and a half later my pain has not decreased at all. Is this evidence that it’s not migraines but something else? I’m tired of hurting. Any advise would be appreciated.
