Hemicrania continua

A really interesting article on a particular type of migraine.

Does this match anyone's symptoms?

Hemicrania continua is a type of daily headache first described in the early 1980s. It is characterized by the symptoms noted by this patient: persistent pain on one side of the head interspersed with episodes of much more severe pain that is often described as sharp or stabbing. The episodes are usually accompanied by other facial symptoms, including watery eyes, runny nose, eyelid swelling or constriction of the pupil.

It has a very straight forward treatment, unlike many other types of migraine.
