hi everyone,

does anyone out there have my problem. just above my ears at both sides I have pain, if i hold both sides can feel a pulse,holding also takes the pain away slightly, it is constant night and day for about 8wks. it is driving me insane. dr has put me on tramadol 50mg 4 a day but they are not really helping. any advise any body can give me would be appreciated. thanku valerie mc :-D

Hi valerie, when i had these headache pains, like a crawling sensation and
really painful, gp prescribed tramadex, i think they are tramadol with paracetomol,
may be wrong, as a bit foggy, others may tell you, but they really helped, if you
are still in pain would suggest going back to your GP, tk care x

Hi
I get pain there as well, have you tried migraine meds? your Gp should be able to give you some stronger ones, i had to be refereed to a neuro doc and now have mine under control. I am on Tramadol but find they dont do much, hope you find a med that helps. :hugs:
