Anyone know about head pain?
So I have been having head pain issues for about three years now. I’m 17 and so my parents won’t listen when I tell them my concerns. I haven’t been to a doctor about it. I’m worried that something may really be wrong with me, like a tumor or some nerve disease. I’ve been doing research lately and my symptoms relate a lot to Chronic Cluster Headaches. Apparently they are rare, especially for teens, which makes me think that it is something else. The thing is, it has been getting worse. I really should see a doctor, I think, but my parents just won’t listen! Does anyone know what it could be?
my symptoms: Extremely sharp, quick pain behind my eyes and at my temples. Sometimes the pain continues on into the back of my neck and into my spine. It occurs suddenly, without any warning, and doesn’t last terribly long, but comes and goes between 8 and 10 times a day. I am not really effected by light, but noise can sometimes bother me, though rarely. Really, it’s just the pain that is killing me. I can’t concentrate and I just want to scream. At the headache’s peak, my head will throb to a point where, sometimes, I’ll start cringing and also hitting my head, like trying to beat the pain away. And it comes and goes, but I haven’t been keeping track, so. . .But I have a hard time sleeping too. Though, I have been having trouble with an eating disorder and depression, so it may be from that.
I don’t know, I just need help! It just hurts SO badly.
Thanks a bunch
