2. Aching, burning, and throbbing pain that typically starts at the base of the head and goes to the scalp
Another type of pain that people commonly describe feeling when they have this condition, is an aching and throbbing pain that tends to make its way up the head.
The pain usually starts on the base of the head like a dull weight and then rises like a big balloon full of poison up towards the head. The throbbing sensation is likened to waves, coming and going every now and then but always there if you look for it. It can be very hard to lead a normal life and to get on with basic daily activities when this pain presents itself, but that’s just what people have to deal with.
Over-the-counter medications and home, remedies offer some relief to the pain, but it really is on another level to the types of headaches that most people are accustomed to. It is much more painful than that. It really hurts.
