I get this evil headaches from time to time. It feels as though part of the inside of my head is trying to make a bid for freedom. I've got one now. It hurts! My mother is incredibly unsympathetic, as usual. You have to be practically dying before she feels for you. IT HURTS!!!!!!!!
Nothing makes it go away, there are no pills that affect it. Sleeping is impossible. A new brain/skull might work. I cannot read, or do much, as I can't concentrate.
I've only been having them for the last few months, which coincides with my life falling apart and me spectacularly failing to do anything about it. Stress-related? Maybe. I just wish it would stop.
