Headache. Pain: Pain is a process of repeating questions, reexamining, testing blood, doing studies (x-rays ct MRI eeg...), trying combination of meds. Time to figure out response (sometimes we change meds too soon) time for a particular diagnosis to manifest and treat accordingly. The more your doctor knows you the better for you. It's challenging, but is duable. Best of luck to you and health.
