Optic neuritis?: First your doctor will determine what type of headache you have. Headaches have many causes i suggest you see your physician and discuss a plan to determine the cause. Your doctor might order imaging of brain and optic nerve exam to rule out serious conditions.

See doctor: You may want to see a neurologist or rehab doctor or pain specialist. Do you have lesion in cervical spinal cord or lower brain stem ?

See your MS doc: In your case a more aggressive work up of the headache is in order. See your MS specialist.

Co-morbidities: Am somewhat perplexed as to why your headaches cannot be managed, as several preventative approaches, such as BOTOX, Depakote, Topamax, (topiramate) or OTC preps such as riboflavin, butterbur, feverfew, Co-Q10, may stop the process. In pts with MS, migraine occurs at 2-4X frequency of other folks. Maybe a headache specialist needs to get involved. Also, ? a dentist to evaluate jaw?
