did you need any more information from me?
I am suffering from headaches since .
Since yesterday the pain wouldn't stop, even painkillers are not efficient. I feel the pain in one side of my head. The pain begins from the junction of my head to my neck, and extends to my eye. I also feel some numbness in the scalp.
Before, i used to have two Nurofens, and it would work. But since yesterday i had to take two Syndols. I felt better for a while, but then i started feeling pain again.
I don't know if this is a normal tension headache or a symptom of some other problem, and i don't know how i should cure it.
thank you for your help and answer
I thought you were asking about shinghles
this doesn't sound like a tension headache. It might be am extended migraine, or it could be the beginning of shingles which only people who've had chickenpox in the past. With shingles, the characteristic red/purple rash with blisters may take up to three days to appear after the pain starts. If it's a migraine, you could try magnesium supplements for it but there is nothing over the counter that works for shingles. I'd suggest you see a doctor for evaluation since there are effective prescription medications for migraines and early dosing with acyclovir can shorten the shingles symptoms
this is the answer
from your doctor

Your headache is from nerve irritation

I don't understand what you are saying
I am not sure what you are asking
shingles can cause this type of pain
because the nerve is irritated from this virus
or this can be temporal neuralgia

NO I do not think it is a migraine
this is either shingles or another type of neuralgia (nerve irritation)
