Two weeks ago I suddenly got a headache over my lunch break. It was quite severe and wouldn't go, even after I drank my weight in water and took a variety of pain relievers (paracetamol, ibuprofen, coedine etc). I went to sleep hoping it would clear over night - to no avail.
Over the last few weeks it has died down to a very muted, slight ache but after the pain relief wears off or I have an alcoholic drink it gets awful again. I have cut out all caffeine, made sure I get enough sleep, started drinking more water, cut out all sweeteners. I have tried not having pain relief.
I saw a doctor on Saturday who checked my blood pressure, heart rate, looked into my eyes and so on and he said it sounded like a migraine and put me on Sumitriptan which hasn't worked at all.
I have also had my eyes tested and she said everything looks fine, and even tested my peripheral vision after I mentioned headaches. I don't wear or need glasses.
My life is not at all stressful, I enjoy my job, have great friends, partner family and so on.
So what is it? Please help!!
