Constant Dull headache on back left side of my head for 1.5 years

Ok guys I am really getting frustrated with this headache. I don't know what is wrong with me. So the headache stared back of the head on the left side of my head mid of February 2013. I have gotten 2 MRI done brain with contrast and cervical spine like few months back. Did a ct scan as well. Also got a doppler done aswell as echo of heart everything came back normal. Because of headache I have went to emergence room like 3 times in past one year they always give like high dosage codeine. Went to countless doctors. Ate lot of different medicines nothing is helping. So when it started the symptoms were like my left eye sight got weak. I felt like there was something inside my head on the back left side. My left ear started feeling clogged. One day I woke up I felt like my face was streched or something weird I can't describe it. The light started hurting my left eye whenever I use to wake up I always had my left eye closed. The light use to bother me a lot. Plus my body started twitching for no reason. It was very difficult to sleep had really bad left eye pain it felt like something is pulling from the back. We I use to wake up in middle of the night I felt my head jerking. I fell like blood was rushing toward by my brain. Plus I used to fell really dizzy and vertigo black out when I used to get up from the sofa or bed. My blood pressure was always low during that time period.I have spent almost $20k+ on just medical bills no health insurance . Willing to spend more but I want to figure out what's causing it. I was going to acupuncture for 3 times a week each session was $65 I been for like 5 month straight it didn't help at all. Then I stated upper cervical spine chiropractor for almost 4 months twice a week didn't help. Did lot of blood work done back in my country still doctors can't figure out. Went to ENT he did sinus cat scan and said it nothing major gave me some anti biotic and nasal steroids. Where ever I go they make their own related headache. Ent was telling me maybe sinus headache. Chiropractor was tell me bad posture and causing pain on spine which is causing the headache. Acupuncturist was telling me maybe because of my bowel movement I am having this weird headache. Neurologist was saying maybe tension headache. Other doctors saying maybe cevicogenic headache some said cluster headaches other said hemicrania continua. I asked someone on another forum they said it might be arthritis neuralgia. From February 2013 to April 2014 I didnt had a single day without this pain. Can some help me diagnose this pain a guide me to right doctor or something.

Thanks in advance

Sorry for bad english is not my main language

Have tried lot of different medicines such as baclofen, amitriptyline, famodine, Topamax, tinzadine, hydrocodone, indomathcin,ibrufen 800, aleve and some other I don't remember the names very well

    omg, virtually word for word my the same problem as me except for the left eye aching, did you find an answer?, i have had medium to server back pain for years, on time i couldn't even get out of bed without taking 10 minutes i had to undergo physio, by back is still very sore but not as bad as in the past, i also suffer from insomnia due to an overactive mine, it's like spam in my head, just random unimportant thoughts keeping me up.

  • No I still have the problem cannot find cure or doctors to figure it out. Now it even weird I went to atlas orthogonal I started having even more severe back pain and tingling and numbness in hands and feet. Can someone please tell if you have find a cure or some doctors who specialize in this issue. Now it almost 4 years with the same problem I am so frustrated.
  • I had the same problem and my neurologist done a spinal tap and found out that I had MS and that is what had been causing all my pain. I'd see a neurologist and get tested for it.
