  • Horrible Headaches

    So for the last 4 days I have had a horrible headahe. It didn't feel like a migraine but felt like hot knives in my head!. I have hardly been able to get anything done the last few days! And for any of you that have called, I haven't been answering the phone at all!

    Well today I was diagnosed with "combination migraines" a combination of migraines and cluser headaches! I got a nice shiny bottle of vicadin for the pain.

    The funny thing is, with the sensitivity to light, I have photophobia!

    The photographer has photophobia!! :lmao:

    I feel your pain but I guess not as much because I only get migraines and not the combination thing. Migraines are a killer, I feel sorry for you. At least you got vicadin for the pain.

        Sorry about the headaches! :ghug:

        The photophobia is something that is a symptom of the migraines. Be careful when medicating your migraine. Medication can lead to rebound headaches. Then you can get in a cycle of migraines and rebound headaches, not knowing where one starts and the other one begins.

        Have you made any significant changes to your diet recently? Certain foods can trigger migraines.

        I stopped medicating my migraines a few years ago. I only take medicine if the migraine is really unmanagable.
        Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
        I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

          I get headaches all the time. The only thing that can work with me is Excedrin. The only thing.

            The vicadin helps the pain but I am being sent to a headache clinic in 2 weeks. I have had bad headaches for many years. Hopefully they can help me finally get rid of them!

                  Chocolate, red wine, processed sugar and anything with caffeine in it can be major culprits.

                  Many years ago, my girlfriend had a migraine that pretty much lasted 3 years. She was miserable. She went to every doctor and specialist under the sun including headache clinics and pain management support groups. Finally, she went to a chiropractor (the only type of doctor she hadn't seen) who referred her to a dietician on his staff. It turned out she had a grocery list of food allergies, especially to processed sugar.

                  It took a little time for her to adjust her diet, but in the nearly 15 years since she made the change, she hardly ever gets a headache, let alone a migraine.

                  I don't want to get all Tom Cruise here, but what you put into your body has a major impact on how you feel. For those of you who suffer from migraines, medication might ultimately be the solution, but controlling your diet first could be the healthier (and less expensive) option.

                  NGU, I hope you're feeling better soon.

                            My migraines were usually a female thing. Since I went through the change, no more migraines. I also get migraines sometimes from garlic. I really have to avoid that.

                            I take ibuprofen for pain. Nothing else works for me.

                            Usually if I get a headache now, it is because I haven't eaten or I have eaten too much chocolate.

                            I wish you luck on getting rid of your migraines. I know they can be really terrible.

                              actually i've found that caffiene helps my migraines rather than exacerbates them.

                              altho i'm kind of surprised they gave you vicodin for them...i would have thought some sort of anti-migraine medication like fioricet would be more appropriate...interesting

                              hope the headache clinic is able to help getting you feeling better!
