‘The worst headache of my life’

Endocrine Today, July 2015
Elizabeth Herman, MD; Stephanie L. Lee, MD, PhD, ECNU

A 30-year-old man was referred for evaluation of a pituitary mass. The patient reported he was previously well until he developed a severe, unrelenting headache. The headache was described as a generalized constant pain/pressure that was worse upon lying down or with Valsalva maneuver. The headache was so severe that he was unable to sleep for several nights. He reported no other associated symptoms, including neck stiffness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, orthostatic dizziness or vision changes.
