Eddieray, I wish I could help you! Sometimes rubbing my temples gently will help a little. A warm or cool damp cloth over the eyes, or across the back of your neck.

If it's the worst you've ever had you may want to head to the ER.

Sending you soothing and healing vibes as well. Hoping the pain lets up quickly.

Eddieray, Scaryann is right. You need to go to the ER if it's got you in tears, and different from any before. Try a warm compress across your eyes and a cool one at the naps of your neck. Ask your wife or neice to massage your scalp with their fingertips, like a gentle shampooing. You shouldn't do it yourself because your shoulders and arms need to be relaxed. Hugs & prayers for you! 🙏🌼

Eddieray, I'm sorry to hear your head is hurting so badly. Sometimes a migraine takes hold and nothing takes it away but time. That being said, if this is the worst headache you have ever had and you've tried to get it to calm down and it won't, a trip to the ER may be in order. If you don't want to go to the ER then at least call your niece so she can come check in on you. You're in my prayers. Feel better. 🌻🙏🏻
