Headaches and their causes can be complicated, difficult diagnoses to make. With your past history of diabetes and high blood pressure, you should make an appointment with your doctor for a complete evaluation as soon as possible. You doctor will take a thorough history and do a neurological evaluation to try and find out what is causing your symptoms.

- when did it start?
- how often do they happen?
- are they getting more frequent or more painful?
- how long do they last?
- what does the headache feel like and can you point to it?
- does it occur around the same time at night or does it ever happen during the day?
- what other symptoms do you have and when do they occur in regards to the headache?
- have you had any big life changes?
- how is your lifestyle? Are you getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising?
- are you taking any medications? Do you drink caffeine and how much?
Answering these questions may help your doctor figure out what is causing your headaches, whether it is a serious problem or not, and how to help you. Good luck! ...Read more
