    I had a very similar experience. I had chronic head aches.
    I tried changing my diet, not drinking alcohol, exercise, amytriptyline (standard anti-chronic pain drug) and even went to a head-ache specialist. All to no avail. I had a headache from when I woke up until I went to bed. I found it impossible to read or do work of any kind.

    I finally managed to diagnose myself with convergence insufficiency (CI) - an eye problem.

    Facts:
    You can have CI and have no obvious vision problems except eye-strain/difficulty reading and headaches.

    CI is common.

    You can easily cure yourself of CI by doing eye exercises.
    Hold two pens in front of your face and cross your eyes to form a single pen in the middle. Do this every hour or so for 5 minutes, every day. I did this for 2 weeks. I now no-longer have headaches. This was an immense relief after suffering with them for over a year. I am not taking any painkiller now and have not changed anything else about my life-style.

    There is plenty of information about CI on the internet as well as more eye exercises to help with the problem:

    It is shocking that my GP (I saw at least 3 different ones), the optician or the headache specialist didn't pick up my CI.
