    Nope. No significant head injuries. I don't box and the I never played football. They have been diagnosed as tension headaches though no combination of muscle relaxers, pain killers, or the like have done any good. Massages have limited effect though I can't afford getting one every day (though that would rock lol). I do get dizzy easily and wonder if perhaps it is a sinus/inner ear thing. No one has ever diagnosed it as such though. I probably just need to relax

    Oh, my name is Jon btw. No idea why I never said before

    Canio-
    With only that minor amount of dairy, I doubt that's it, unless you take your coffee pale as an Irish girl.
    Tiger may be onto something.
    Maybe it's an allergy to a food/ drink you have every day or most days? Or to something environmental?
    ETA:
    With the ear thing, you have me back on the dairy track. I had the same issues when I was on dairy.

    Well, I do like my coffee like I like my women but I am eating far less dairy now than before and headaches are much the same. The only thing I consume daily is coffee, though I have quit that before and the headaches remained.

    Hrmmmm... silly question:
    Press your tongue to the roof of your mouth and hold your thumbs on either side of your nose up at the very top of it (in the eyebrow area) for 30 sec -1 min. Any drainage or pain after/ during doing so?

    Yup, that hurts. Lots of pressure but, and this will sound odd...it's a good hurt. Then again I think it feels good when someone presses on my temples really hard. That seems to relieve pressure as well.

    Jon:
    Reason I'm asking is because what COULD be causing those headaches, if it's not dietary, is a displaced atlas. (It's the bone that your head rests upon, at the very top of your neck.) If it is displaced, one of the things that can happen is chronic headaches that don't respond to anything. I recently started atlas orthogonal chiropractic, and am absolutely FLOORED at the immediate response. It's the reason I haven't been around much lately -- I'm doing THAT much better.

    Take a look at this short video and see if any of this rings true for you:
    GlobalAO: About Atlas Orthogonal

    Another thing, besides this, that might be helpful is craniosacral release. I used to be dizzy all the time and my head felt really heavy, like it was going to topple right off. That's all gone now.

    Means it's sinus related. That's supposed to help clear the sinuses.
    The temples ... Is it a specific spot on the temples? Like right on top of a blood vessel you can feel pulsing under the skin? For me, holding/ massaging that blood vessel helps make a tension/ stress headache go away.

    Yup, I have always argued it is sinus and tension related. However, since most doctors I have seen have been army doctors teh standard proceedure was "Take these pills and lose weight." As for the temples, yup, right on that spot. Massaging there helps but only if you press on it like you are trying to drive your fingers into my skull. That feels pretty damned awesome
