Could anyone answer a question about headaches?!
Question: I get headaches that do not go away with sleep or with pain killers. Sometimes it is pain behind my eyes and other times it may be a sharp pain behind one eye only. It can last from one day to a week but usually for a few days. It happens about every 3-8 weeks. The only thing that seems to help is taking pain killers and then after an hour taking anti anxiety medication which makes me sleep. I don't want to rely on this as I can't drive while on these tablets. What could be the cause of my headaches and what could I try to get rid of them?

This happened to me a while ago. I went to see a neurologist, he said they were migraines, and he prescribed me a medicine (Amytryptiline [spelling?]) He said sports drinks like Gatorade or Powerade work because of the salt content or something. He also told me that certain foods increase migraines.
-Chocolate- certain chemicals in chocolate may help worsen migraines in some people.
-Anything with Caffeine-(or if you drank a lot of caffeine and then stopped drinking it.) If you drink 3 cups of coffee morning evening and night for years and then stop suddenly your body goes through withdrawal causing migraines.
-Green vegetable prevent migraines.
this is what my doc told me. Dunno if it will help but it helped me.
should get your blood presure checked
maybe your under alot of stress?
i think they are sinus headaches.. check with your dr... could be something more serious.. i hope not though.. good luck
Have you ever thought about getting glasses? Or maybe contacts? If I dont wear my glasses enough I get REALLY bad headaches behind my eyes, or usually my right eye.
see a neurologist for migraines
get in a quiet area and dim or turn off the lights and try to relax sometimes the headache can be triggered by allergies or sometimes different smells i heard that can trigger headache so take a look around your environment and see can any of those factors contribute to your headaches
Immetrix is a medication used for migraines which is what it sounds like you are having
those sound like migrains not head aches and i have the same problem
my parents dont believe me they say im fine so theres nothing i can do about it
but u should go see a doctor
bright lights is probly the cause since its behind ur eyes where the pain is comming from
or if ur focusing too hard for too long that could also do it
the only thing u can do is relax get something to eat and lay down
hope i helped
!st thing is check your vision.then beleive in your mind power and say to your self that you are alright.dont take too much of pils which can upset your balance and routine.
you have get head aches bcoz of severe stress.
listen to some pleasing music and good food..thing good , u will feel good..
have faith in ur selves first ,( i mean..faith to get cured)
I get migraines too. Have you talked to your doctor about them? I suggest going to your doctor if you have not already. Do some tension-releasing yoga. And RELAX!! Relaxing is a huge part of headache relief. I hope you feel better. :)
try rubbing your fore head or push you temples and rube them
or lay in bed with the light off and put ice pack on your head
maybe its not a headache,you should see your eye doctor if you having the pain behind your eyes...b.t.w. E's-up on the pills
could be a migraine problem. I would visit a doctor.
it seems like you have chronic migraines like me. or bad sinus headaches with migraines you usually see little spaceships is what i call them but i think there called auroa. i found excedrin to be the only thing that really helps me and sinus headache pills i can't take the imitrex but i know a lot of people who say it is a lifesaver to them i know how you feel i have had a headache for 15 years and i've been through just about every test doctor u can think of there not always as painful as the spike in the eye thats what i call the one your describing. have you ever had a head injury? if so you can always try a cat scan or mri. but if feel your pain believe me i hope this helps
