I wondered if anyone has had these symptoms and can advise?
Since an admission to hospital in 2012 with stroke like symptoms (see previous posts) I have had left sided head pain on and off in the same place each time . The last time I had this head pain ( I call it that because its not like a headache) was July last year.These head pains do last quite a while.
I have currently had the head pain for a month and it's continual with varying degrees of pain. I have also noticed this time that my scalp is tender to touch and if I touch/press my scalp the head pain is more intense. I don't get any eye pain or disturbance and don't need to go and lie down in a dark room like I used to with migraines sometimes. I am able to use the laptop, watch TV etc. The only other symptoms I have had are neck pain but not all the time, and I find I can sometimes get a feeling that I might faint when I go out for a short walk.
My GP gave me cocodamol when I saw her 3 weeks ago but it has made no difference. She has now asked me to try Sumatriptan and I will be collecting the prescription today. I have a neurology referral but no date yet!
This head pain is really getting me down as I find it quite debilitating.
If anyone has had a similar experience I would love to hear from you.
