Major headache

I need y'all's help. I woke up about 1am with a terrible pounding headache. It has only gotten worse. It's even behind my ears and down my neck. I've had 2 doses of Tylenol at 6 and 10 with some coffee. It's better but still miserable. Any suggestions?

Re: Major headache

If it feels like a tension headache, have someone massage your neck, shoulders and scalp. Maybe try that anyway. (ETA) Drink water until you feel like you are going to float away. Otherwise, I've got nothing =/

Re: Major headache

Lay flat on your back.
Put a water bottle under your neck and roll back and forth. It will massage from the top of your shoulders, to the middle of the back of your head.

This helps relieve tension. Also, look straight up and stretch all of those muscles out as much as you can. A headache from the back of your head down into your neck is a tension headache. I get them horribly during pregnancy.

Re: Major headache

Alternating heat and ice on that area really helps as well. Usually 10 minutes heat, 10 minutes ice, 10 minutes heat, etc. Definitely helps take the edge off.

Re: Major headache

Due Date crashing, but just to be sure, you should probably take a quick trip out to a drug store and check your blood pressure at one of those machines. Sometimes a headache that is sudden like that can indicate a blood pressure spike.

Re: Major headache

I'm so sorry. I get bad migraines and I have to take zofrin for hypermises. One of the side effects is head aches. Something that helps me is peppermint oil on my temples & even smelling it off a piece of paper. Sometimes a drop under my tongue. If all else fails I take one Excedrin migraine.

Thanks girls. I probably should have checked my bp even though I have never had issues. But I have been too lazy and hurt. It is slowly subsiding and I think it has been a tension headache

Thx for all the suggestions. They have helped!

Re: Major headache

i get super bad "hormone" headaches every day at about the same time... i remember it happened with my daughter and not a lot helped sadly... i do get lots of tension in my neck and a massage dose help with those kind of headaches though for sure.

i agree with other those about checking your bp too. hopefully it is short lived.
