I remember my headaches becoming chronic around 7th grade; that was 5 years ago. I would get them towards the end of the day when I boarded the bus, and I specifically remember not wanting to talk to my friend on the bus as much as I did the year before because I always had a headache.
My headaches can be best described as both of my hands on top of my head (bilateral), except it's a dull, constant pain. They come on in the late morning now and last for several hours every day. Sometimes I will get a hint of pain on the side of my head too that will be sharper and will go away soon. That only came recently. Sometimes I'll also get eye pain (on both sides) and/or pressure/dull pain on my forehead too. I don't know if it's the headaches or something else, but I'm really tired all the time. I don't remember what a normal level of energy is like. My step-dad makes fun of me because I look lazy, but I rest a lot and I have a hard time getting out of bed. It's also very frustrating when doctors don't know what's wrong with me. My last doctor swore they were common migraines and prescribed Topamax. 200mg a day it really helps the headaches, so would that mean I have migraines, or does that just mean Topamax helps with pain?
Something that might get me somewhere is the fact that my upper neck is always in constant pain, regardless if I have a headache of not and no matter what position my head is in. My step-mom felt my neck and told me I had a bulged disc, but then my mom immediately told me I didn't and said she wasn't a doctor. Weird? I would like to get my neck checked out, because if a localized area on my body hurts all the time I would like to have it looked at. Yesterday my new doctor prescribed a muscle relaxer for my neck, but I don't think that's what I need... I don't know if it's a muscle problem or something else.
