I've got a really bad haedache. it happens every night, usually from about 11pm, and it is like a pulsation that is behind my right eye. it is very painful, and it is hard for me to go to sleep. when i wake up, it is gone. should i see a doctor?

It could be a tension headache.
Are you under stress?

You could also need glasses. (more probably)

sounds like tension/looking at comp screen too much etc

I wouldn't worry too much. Its headaches in the morning that tend to be a problem. However, if you're worried, it's probably worth a trip to see GP/have your eyes tested.

im pretty sure it sounds like you need glasses, and the fact it is in one eye suggests you have a slightly lazy eye and are overexerting the other one in recompense

If ur GP is anything like most I know you'll probably have to wait a few weeks before they can see you!

I agree with what's been said. If you keep getting headaches and sit on the computer for ages then maybe you need to check with the opticians to see if your sight is getting bad. If you wear your glasses and start seeing a difference then maybe that the reason.

Also sleep is good . No too much mind .

Chill and relax.

Yes, you should see your doctor. Sounds like a migrane.

Yeah I used to get the same thing although I think it is because only one of my eyes works probably and so the good one was getting a bit tired!! lol

Go to the doctor - they will sort yer out.

It's likely that you just need glasses or are spending too much time in front of the computer however there is an outside chance of a brain tumour so i reccomend you goto your G.P. or local opticians.

Daveo, the risk of it being a brain tumour is very very slim - usually associated with morning headaches due to a build up of intracranial pressure resulting from a build up of CSF.

You have a brain tumour. You haven't got long left so enjoy the time you have left.
