    Whinning Alert

    I have a headache that won't quit. I generally don't get headaches. I also have knee pain, hip soreness, and lower back pain. The only medication I have is a trial bottle past its expiration date. I sm going to take either way so maybe it will lesson the pain to be able to go to store to get more pain medication.

        oh dear..please don't die. Sinus'? Allergic reaction?

        The only uncured bacon TJ's has is applewood smoked and to sweet to me. I haven't tried the cured. Could be better. Going to Tallahassee this weekend. Stay alive so we can walk next week.

          This headache must love me. It is still going strong. Medication and sleep doesn't help. I've had it since 10 am yesterday. When I simply sit up it increases. Movement of any type makes it hurt more. Right now I wish someone would put me out of my misery. I would cry if it didnt hurt so much. Remember I stated that I very rairly get them.

            Migraine... have you tried a good dose of caffeine?
            It's known to help.

            Also... this is going to sound nuts, but nicotine... not a cigarette obviously... but a piece of nic gum... can help too.
            It's a vaso constrictor and can help shut a migraine down.

            Lots of chronic migraine sufferers keep a pack of gum handy for those headaches that won't give up with the normal methods.

            Strange but true.

              Thanks cori. I have never had a migrain. I thought they started when your young and stayed with you. Can they appear for the first time when your older? I did try caffine and no help their.

              Web MD says it is a symtom of either a stroke or brain anurism. Either one stated a headache without known cause and stronger than any than previous. But I have no other symptoms and its been going longer than 13 hrs.

                LOL! Well, not to be a smart ass, but I would assume that a headache would be a symptom of a brain aneurism or stroke since both are bleeding on or in your brain. Bummer caffine doesn't seem to help, do you have any sinus congestion? Vision problems? Light sensitivity?

                It could be sinuses especially since you say it hurts more when you move around, do feel pressure at all?

                    I ate some time yesterday but haven'T FELT like drinking. No conjestion, vision problems, and slight light sensitivity. Some pressure and if lightly touch anywhere from eyebrow to eyebrow pain intensify.

                    • Yes, migraines can come on when you are older.

                      Sinus headache can be the cause without being stuffy... Stinking FL allergy season as it is this time of the year.
                      If you've had sinus allergies before I'd definitely consider that!

                      Can you describe the headache in detail... all the details. Position on the head of the headache, any strange weirdness like light aversion...

                      I'm betting it's not the aneurism or stroke since its hanging on and no other symptoms but the headache.
                      Sometimes pretty bad headaches can simply be muscle tension.
                      Worry/stress won't help that.
                      With migraines cold compresses usually help... but with tension headaches a warm wrap might do the trick.

                      Trust me, I know a bad headache.
                      My brain pressure got so high I lost consciousness and ended up in the ER once. LOL
                      And I live with daily headaches still, though they are under control compared to what they once were.

                      • So just a plain old headache? You should really eat a bannana or something sweet and drink some water or fruit juice. I find that many headaches are simply caused by dehydration. It could be that your headache was started by something else and is being excacerbated by not having any food or water.

                          Do you every have allergies?
                          That's totally sinus...

                          What he said^^^
                          And consider a bit of allergy medicine if that doesn't clear it up... one of the good 24 hr non-drowsy ones.
                          The FL allergy season is in full force.

                          • I'll try. Thanks.

                            • I get pretty severe semi deilitating migraines, bad enough they've actually made me vomit before. I only get them about 2 or 3 times a year but the only thing I think that helps with those is a cold moist wrag on my face and a pitch black room and complete silence. I still recomend having something to eat, drink a good size glass of water and maybe take a multivitamin to. Than try to sleep it off, if its not better by the following day I'd think about seeing a doctor. Three days is too long.

                              • agree with all of the above. Try a salt water solution to ease sinus pressure too. Keep me posted. I am headed to Tally. Do you have someone to drive you if needed?
