Unsure what to do

Hello everyone,
I've had and have, this intense pain in my head. It feels like someone is pressing or squeezing my brain. It's been 6 days and it's not going away. I'm nauseous, I'm having difficulty concentrating and staying awake.
I don't have insurance and when I went to urgent care, they dismissed my concerns as just a normal headache without doing any tests.
Anyone have any advice? #help #Advice #headpain #Pressure

A NECK MASSAGER: A good investment for my migraines #FamilialHemiplegicMigraine #migriane #ChronicPain #neck pain #headpain

I got a neck massager for my migraines a few years back and can’t live without it! It has been helpful in relieving some pain when i am having an attack. For some of my throbbing head feel like exploding attacks on one side, i put on salon pas and use the neck massager in combination and works wonder for me. What works for me may not work for you. As i am not a doctor but just like to share anyway just in case it might help someone out there one day. :)

Been struggling with the pain

My head pain has been at an 8/10 for a week now, and none of my painkillers do anything anymore. My neurologist has raised my diamox, so now it’s just a painful waiting game for it to work.
Anyone else had problems like this before?

Some relief from Migraine

Just thought I would share, these patches are amazing-at least comparatively to other things I have tried including multiple meds and home remedies. These last longer than any topical creams or oils and have less negative side effects and about as much effectiveness as rescue meds. They are a treasured part of my migraine kit. Just in case anyone can use these and get any amount of relief.
