Question: Terrible headaches… worst human pain
For the past 4 weeks I have been getting the worst headaches of my whole life. The pain is so severe and the intensity is something that I can not describe but the worst pain known to humans times by 20 and its always in the same place on right side of forehead and temple and right eye. They mainly occur at night time by waking me although they can come in day time. I’m literally frozen in one place when it comes. I can’t walk or move hardly. They can last anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours and they are guaranteed every day. But also the right side of my forehead and scalp and around my eye socket feels very tender to the touch almost as if it is bruised but it is not bruised and I have not injured it. I’m really worried.
Have you not seen a primary care doc or neurologist about this yet? It sounds like it has been debilitating for you. There are likely medications to help. Google and read about the following: migraine, cluster headache, “hemicrania,” aneurysm, “tic douloureux.”

Hi. I appreciate your answers but just looked this up and its totally different. The pain is more in my head and lasts a lot longer then 2 mins. Even the slightest bit of alcohol triggers it. I have also had this tenderness to all of the places mentioned as if it is bruised although there is no bruise and I have not injured my head at all.
Sometimes, alcohol triggers trigeminal neuralgia attacks – although not right away but in 24 hours after
