Hi, first time poster here. I've been scouring the web for an answer to my issue. A little over a month ago I started getting these dull headaches on a daily basis that I would just treat with advil. Eventually the advil stopped working (so i stopped taking it). About a week and a half ago I started getting a pain in the front left part of my head when I would stand up or lean over. I would describe the pain as moderate but pretty localized. The pain would last about 10 seconds or so and dissapear. I've seen my fligth doc about this (one of my few days pain free did occur while on a flight so I don't really link the two). He ordered some blood work and perscribed naproxen. After one day of two doses the pain still occured but stopped on day two. Day three I went past my second dose time and started to feel the pain again but it went away shortly after taking the pill. Anyway thats my story and I was hoping someone here could help identify what it was that I was experiencing and put my mind at ease or let me know if I need to push to get more tests. Anyway Thank you for your time, let me know if you need more details.
