First let me say I feel for everyone who is experiencing terrible headaches.
I'm looking for someone who has or is experiencing similar problems.
About two and a half weeks ago I started to get a throbbing located behind my eyeball (left side only). I got this pain two or three nights in a row around the same time of night and it lasted for about an hour each time. Over the next 4-5 days this pain began to spread all around the left side of my head, into my jaw, over my eyebrow, next to my ear, etc...(all left side only). During that time I noticed a lump at the top of my jawline forming which I would describe as a swollen vein or node, so I went to the ER and the CT scan revealed nothing. Since then, I've been getting terrible headaches all around the left side of my head everyday (almost 3 weeks now). These headaches last about 3 hours and are much worse than migraines that I have had in the past. Ive been prescribed medication for tension and also a pill that restores blood vessels in my head to original state during the headache. Both only give very temporary relief however. From the online research I've come across, the most closely related symptoms would point to either trigeminal neuralgia or cluster headaches, but even so, most describe shorter periods of pain. I'm lost and cannot get any comfort, so please if anyone here has or is experiencing anything similar, let me know :) Thanks for your time.
