Since how long are you having this headache?
What was the level of your TSH?
Welcome to live chat services on this website.
Please answer the questions that I have stated above.
Is been on and off for about 6 months. But is becoming unbearable in the last 3 days.
For how long does an episode last? Have you have had this kind of headache before?
What is tsh? Does that refers to the tyroid results?
There are three things on a thyroid function:T3, T4, TSH.
The most important of which is TSH.
Ok; the tsh was 4, while the to was 72
okay, the TSH is still slightly on the higher side which means that your levothyroxine may need to be increased further.
Now regarding the headache, for how long does an episode of headache last?
Could that be responsible for the headache and the pain in the eyes?
I do not think thats causing your pain and other causes should be considered.
I think that the most common cause of a headache that you are having is migraine.
Another cause of such headache would be cluster headache.
The headache usually starts in the late afternoon and is gone by early morning next day
A neurologist would be the best person to evaluate these problems.
The three main possibilities are:MigraineCluster headache (which is unsual at your age)Tension headache.
These causes should be considered and ruled out.
The best person to get in contact with would be a neurologist.
Have you been to a neurologist for this?
No. Not yet
I certainly do think that you do need to consult a neurologist for further evaluation of your headache.
I will do some checking to know where I can get one
I think that you should try and find one there by calling your GP or doctors office.
