My friend complains about having severe headache at times, may be 5 times in a month and the pain is unbearable to her. What could this possibly be ?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Exam and history
Too vague a question without having a thorough history and an examination.
Too many variables when attempting to determine the cause of a headache.

In brief: Possibly migraines
Migraine headache is quite common and your friend could possibly be suffering from it.
It is often quite severe and may worsen over time. She should see a doc for an evaluation, esecially if this is a new headache or if it is rapidly worsening. Excedrine migraine may help some people minimize the symptoms..But she may need preventive treatment. Wish her some luck for me..
