I tried to ask this under specifically tension headaches, but I'm not sure what it is so I figure trying to get under headaches in general might help. anyway, I've been getting really bad headaches for the last week and a half or so, and nothing I do seems to make them go away. I do have chronic migraines and tension headaches, but even the prescriptions I have for those conditions don't even touch these headaches. There doesn't really seem to be any specific part of my head that hurts during this headache, sometimes it can be the back of the head like attention headache, sometimes it can be up around the temples, sometimes it can be across the forehead, and so on, but besides just being really bad and kind of leading to brain fog, I have noticed an unusual symptom that's really hard to describe, but I'll try. I've noticed when my head hurts like this, it throbes when I close my eyes. sometimes it can be one throb and then it stops, or sometimes it can be a dozen throbs and rapid succession, and then it will stop. but it tends to only happen like that whenever I close my eyes. So like blinking, or closing your eyes cuz you're tired, or trying to take a deep breath to calm yourself down or something, all of that has been leading to this throbbing sensation. I've also noticed that it tends to almost have an auditory element to it. this is the part I have a hard time explaining. I am not hearing an actual sound, but when it throbes my head does something that my brain seems to be interpreting as a sound. it's kind of like this high-pitched fear cord, if you're familiar with video game language. I have also compared it to the iconic shower scene in psycho, and that high pitched note that they hit over and over again right when he's stabbing the girl. For some reason that is the closest thing I can think of to explain what it sounds like. I thought it could be a symptom of my new medications, but I'm at a loss. does anyone have any suggestions at all? I'll take what you think it could be, I'll take things that might help with it, I'm willing to take any advice or suggestions or literally anything at this point.

It's important to consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, as your symptoms seem to be different from your usual headaches and migraines. The throbbing sensation when closing your eyes and the auditory element you described might be related to stress or other factors, but only a medical professional can provide accurate advice.

      Try to see if you have food allergies as that may be a factor. Also treat yourself for allergies in general. There are pressure points you can massage and reflexology points in your ears, hands and feet that can be rubbed to relieve pain. Stress elimination is your best friend too

      I'm so sorry I don't have any advice but I also get these! For me they kinda just randomly come and go and the only things that helps is strong painkillers but even that doesn't take it away completely. The way you explained it explains it perfectly! I really hope you find something that helps you

      Truthfully I have no idea but it kinda sounds like what I deal with in a sense. With my migraines I do hear my blood or like pounding inside my head. I can feel my head throbbing like it's about to explode. The tinnitus gets worse during the migraines or the constant just white noise I explain it. Sometimes it gets really loud and it just doesn't stop but I know it's just in my head.

        @DariaFae yeah, that's not exactly the same, but you have no idea how nice it is to hear somebody who kind of gets it at least. I always feel like I'm extra crazy, trying to describe it to people. And I guess tinnitus is a good parallel. The thing is I don't normally have it, so I never really thought to equate it to that. Maybe that will make it a bit easier to explain when I eventually go see my neurologist.

      Right after I recovered from covid, I would get really bad headaches along with a pulsating sound in my ears. The sound was like a high-pitched electric motor, with almost a crowd-like roar in the background, and got worse if I moved quickly or layed down. It went away eventually, but it sort of freaked me out and made it very hard to sleep.

Never sent... huh shocked it's still here a day later 💕

      that makes a lot of sense. I'm also partially blind, so I should have considered that I was taking away a sense when the throbbing got worse. Thanks for answer.
