10 day headache

I need a little positve vibes sent my way. I have 4 kids and have had this headache 10 going on 11 days. Its so frustrating and annoying. Its hard to focus. Ive seen the urgent care and got a shot of tri something in my bum, it worked that nite but was back the next day. Ive taked non asprin, tylonal, excedrine migraine, mortin. They all work but make the headache very very lite.

Try just caffeine? I had the spinal headache with my fourth (ugh...ok, more than ugh) it was awful. The only thing that helps it is caffeine. So at 7 months old, I have a new love hate relationship with caffeine. Hope it goes away for you soon! **hugs**

Re: 10 day headache

Oh my goodness, I almost could have written your post! I got a Migraine three weeks ago tomorrow, and went to the ER. It was HORRIBLE. They gave me an IV cocktail and it was gone that night but back the next day. It hadn't returned as strong until last night, and Imatrex and tylenol and aspirin and advil...ntohing touched it. Phenegran did take the edge off. I still have the ache, just not as severe. If you come up with an answer, PLEASE let me know.

I have honestly wondered if it is viral.

(((hugs))) I feel your pain!!!

Re: 10 day headache

My first day I thought I was having an aneurism. It hurt so bad.

It is miserable.

Re: 10 day headache

Hows your head doing? So I went in to the doc got a 100mg shot of imetrex which helped for about 4 hrs then led into a migraine afterward. She send me to get a MRI which showed my sinus was all red. I'm on a nasal steroid and this other nasal over the counter Alf something spray. My headache has been GONE today until about 5 I felt it starting up and I took 2 Aleve and those Help a ton.

Re: 10 day headache

Mine is just a gentle throb now. Bearable. Wish it would go away. I am getting all paranoid that I have a tumor or something. LOL

Glad you are somewhat better and you know what is wrong. (((hugs)))

Re: 10 day headache

There are other signs of tumor's from what I read on. Cause I thought I had one to :/ Like cant raise both eye brows, u don't stick out ur tongue straight, forget full ness, seizures. Im not a doc its just what i read on Google and the doc had me stick out my tongue so i assume that's why.
Go to the doc it could be your sinus's to. Sad to say my head ache returned lightly today. Weird i had sharp pains on the left side of my head and when they happened sometimes my eyes would twitch.. my mom said she gets that sometimes.
headache=Lame

Re: 10 day headache

I have several suggestions. #1 would be to see a chirpractor as you probably have a pinched nerve.
#2 try magnesium. this is natures cure for tight muscles and spasms which include headaches (unless its a pinched nerve )
#3 increase protein. if you are lacking protein, you get migraines as your body is trying to tell you something is wrong. headaches tends to be the first sign, then bp goes up, you don't feel well, etc.
