In brief: Paroxysms of pain

I would need more info to be of help- Where does the pain start on your head and does it radiate? What is the quality of the pain (i,e, sharp, pounding like you pulse, squeezing.
..)? What is the severity (0-10)? Does it change with exertion? What are the associated symptoms if any? What is the response to any therapeutic measures?
