I wonder if this is my issue. I have a headache all the time, literally all the time. I can't think of a time in the last 25 years that I have not had a headache in the background. However I also get cluster headaches and migraines. To the point that sometimes I don't even know my own birthday. Fortunately migraines are few and far between, but when they come they last for days. cluster headaches happen at least weekly generally speaking, every few days. Fortunately while they're severe and very painful, they only last for a few seconds at a time and the whole attack only last overall for about 20 minutes. And then I'm fine again. I've been to neurologist I've had CTS MRIs and another procedure done where they had to stick stuff to my scalp. They can find no reason so I just gave up years ago.
