Headache that won't be cured? ?
I've had a headache for about 5 consecutive days now with little to no ease. I've taken acetaminophen, I've taken nsaids, I've taken ginger supplements and nothing. I finally went to the ER because I couldn't take it anymore and they said it sounded like a tension headache and gave me a muscle relaxer and pain pill and that was that. The headache did go away but now I feel great pressure towards the back of my head and my neck feels stressed. I have to lay down when I feel overwhelmed. I'm really scared something serious could have been happening like an anuerism or blod clot or something serious. My blood pressure has been fine throughout the whole ordeal. I don't drink nor smoke and I have two kids who can be a handful at times but that's what small kids are like. My job is not that stressing because I work and come home and still have energy to do other things except lately. I also don't have much of an appetite lately. I only have been taking Ginger root supplements for my digestion. Been on them a month. I've also have the Nexplanon implant in my arm for birth control. Had it 2 years. Any clue of why i feel this way? Should I be worried?

Headaches are often badly diagnosed at hospitals. Do some research in your town for a headache clinic or someone that specializes in headaches and/or migraines. It might be due to muscle tension, but there could be something physical causing it.
Giving you a muscle relaxant and pain killer is sadly common but bad medicine.
