I wake up and go to sleep with it everyday for the last three weeks or so and wonder if I should call my primary doctor to see if the symptom warrant at CT or MRI.
The last CT of my Brain was ordered by my Cardiologist about 5/6 Years ago and nothing was found related to a tumor or cancel from the Scans results. What will be your reasonable reply by email assessment.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing. I'm sorry you'r dealing with such bad headaches - they can really destroy quality of life.

Saved My Life
Headache -- the searing pain behind one’s eyes in the head, neck or scalp -- is the bane of many people's existence. It can come on at the end of a long day of working hard, after being stuck in traffic, or in the middle of a noisy club or bar.

The most common type of headache is a tension headache and is the result of tight, clenched muscles. Overexerting your muscles or keeping your head in one position too long, sleeping on it in an uncomfortable position, or even grinding your teeth can result in a headache. These tend to occur on both sides of your head, not just one.

Other types of headaches can result from illnesses, including fevers. The serious conditions associated with headaches need immediate medical attention. The conditions include brain tumors, brain meningitis and strokes. Headaches associated with these conditions are much more rare.

Aside from tension headaches, the most common types of headaches are cluster headaches, sinus headaches and headaches associated with flu and fever.

Cluster headaches tend to happen many times each day over a period of months, are very painful and tend to disappear from one’s life as suddenly as they appeared.

Sinus headaches are related to your sinuses and their relative state of infection or health and will be felt in the front of the head. Premenstrual syndrome can also cause headaches.

Being older than 50 and having extreme pain in your head may be a sign of another medical condition.

As with any pain you experience, if it is too much to feel within the bounds of “normal” or “typical” for your body or if it comes seemingly out of nowhere, seek medical attention as quickly as you can.

We cannot form an assessment - nobody can - not even a doctor, until more tests are done. Please make an appointment as soon as possible.
