I have throbbing pains on the left side of my head. The pain started two days ago but I have been taking advil. It started again this morning at 5:30 AM. It went away after I took advil but slowly starts to come up again. Is there anything wrong? Should I
Migraine headache. The medication is not strong and specific enough to hold the pain. You need some migraine specific medications such as cafergot, imitrex (sumatriptan) or midrin. Also some medications to prevent it. Call your doctor. If you can not get a hold of your doctor go to an urgent care center and also make an appointment to see a neurologist.
