This past May 6th I bent over to pick something up off the floor and a pain shot through my head causing a headache that has never gone away. Bending forward, coughing, sneezing and laughing cause me intense pain (in addition to the always there headache). Over the counter pain meds have given me some relief, but the only complete relief I have had is from a Medrol Dosepak. I was pain free for 4 weeks following taking Medrol, but the headache came back. It has now been over 6 months and my quality of life has been severely affected. I've been to my PCP, a neurologist, an ENT doctor, my eye doctor and an infectious disease specialist. No one can figure out what this is... have you gotten any relief at all?View Thread
