My head hurts so bad like it's pounding and headache medicine isn't helping. Suggestions for pain relief?

A few thoughts. Self help can include ice to the head or back of the neck.If meds & ice are not helping, could be migraine; if associated w/ strange symptoms like limb numbness, loss of muscle control, speech impairment or if this is literally 'the worst headache of your life' - you could be dealing w/ a subarachnoid hemorrhage (brain bleed).Seek IMMEDIATE medical attention.Could save your life.
