I’ve had a headache for 83 days and I’m losing my mind.
I’ve had a headache everyday (24/7) since April 19th 2022, its been 83 days today and I’m losing my mind. Everyday I wake up with the same pain, I go to sleep with the same pain, it won’t end, it won’t calm down or disappear.
I’ve not been able to work for 4 months, I have no income, I cannot get another job because of the pain I’m in, I cannot get any other form of income like benefits because they’re refusing to see what’s going on as a medical problem, due to the hospitals taking their time to figure out what’s going on.
I’m losing my mind to the pain, last week I started to get this unreal amount of anger and frustration boiling from my feet to my chest, my whole body has been hot with rage for a week straight, I’m getting annoyed at everything in my life to the point I want to rip my own skin apart.
Last night my brain felt like it was on fire, everytime I closed my eyes, there was blinding whiteness, my eyes burnt, when I tried to take deep breaths to calm my head it made it worse, I couldn’t move for 2 hours, everytime I tried, the room spun so fast, the pain made it hard to see.
I am seeking medical attention, but I’m being told these are normal headaches.
No normal headache lasts 83 days. No normal headache leaves you pulling at your own scalp/hair to stop the pain. No normal headache wakes you up in the middle of the night screaming in agony. No normal headache causes extreme adrenaline anxiety. No normal headache stops you from eating for 5-10days at a time. No normal headache makes your whole body burn.
I need this the stop because I’m losing myself
EDIT: ( I had an MRI on the 17th May, it came back clear, I haven’t got a tumour)
EDIT 2 (I didn’t expect to get this much help from people, thank you so much. I’m trying to reply to everyone)
