Hi I'm new to this
I'm a 33 year old female and I have been dealing with chronic headaches since i was 17 , when i say chronic it could be daily for weeks then nothing for weeks ect .
From age 17 untill 28 these headaches were severe head pain , one sided and throbbing with my heartbeat .
I saw 2 headache doctors during that period and was told i had migraine headaches .
From 28 untill now these headaches changed , they became more frequent but less severe .
The pain is 80% of the time one sided it is not throbbing but more constant , movements can make it worse if the headaches severe .
The pain is mostly mild to moderate unlike the migraines I use to have .
I do have sensitive to light and loud noise during theses headaches only if there moderate pain .
I also get a feeling of being of balance during some of these headaches , and nausea if the pain quite bad .
I was diagnosed with issues with my neck such as bone spurs and slipping of my cervical vertabra , this was diagnosed two years ago.
I have chronic shoulder and neck pain during the headaches and with out the headaches .
During my period i suffer really bad one sided head pain that makes me feel foggy and like im drugged up. How ever they are still non throbbing but will throb with movement such as doing house work .
Ever since these headaches havebecome more chronic and changed in nature , i get very odd feelings such as pins and needles sensation on my face in small spots , this happens without the headaches ? I get this feeling of not being able to focus my eyes , like its hard to track my eyes.
Also in the last 2 years i sometimes have flashers of light in my side vision it is only one eye and one flash , also i get black spots in my vision again only lasts a second . My eyes have been tested they are normal .
I take aspirn for these headaches high strength and it sometimes works if I catch the pain in time .
Does anyone have the same kind if head pain ?
Is this still migrains?
Thanks for reading
