Headaches Daily

Oct 13, 2015

I have been struggling for years with daily headaches. Typically I will wake up in the morning with a headache  and it remains with me for most of the morning. (The pain is across my forehead)

I have tried all sorts....

Making sure I am hydrated - Drinking plenty of water

Cutting back on caffeine - 2 coffees a day only

Good quality sleep

Wearing a gum shield at night to prevent teeth grinding

Regular exercise

Glasses/Eye test

My job is fairly stressful and I sit in front of a screen all day at work. There is a possibility this perhaps responsible?

I have been to my GP and was referred to a neurologist. Following a MRI scan everything checked out all OK.

One worth I noticed this year, is the headaches worsened as soon as the weather started to get colder?

Daily Headaches

I have had this headache for two weeks now, everyday, and sometimes every hour. I have recently got a reprieve after two weeks. The pain is concentrated on the right side of the head affecting the eye as if someone is trying to pull it out. The pain is unbearable, it ranges from numbness, throbbing, pulsating, shooting,stabbing or a combination of any I have mentioned. Night pain is so unbearable it wakes me up and I reach for painkillers. When I am not in pain I get hot and cold flashes like a breeze. After an episode of attack I feel so tired as if I have been doing a work out. Initially my Dr prescribed paracetamol and ibuprofen and this didn't work, later it was co-dydramol and ibuprofen. I only managed relief lasting no more than 3 hours on co-dydramol and ibuprofen. Could this be a cluster headache?

Citalopram :: Daily Headaches

I have been on 20mg of cit for 3 1/2 months. Generally feeling a lot less anxious and over the worst of the side effects. Would love to put on some weight, but most troubling is the daily headaches. I have never been a headachy person, so this has thrown me to some extent. I understand what people are talking about when they refer to a tight band around your head and eye pressure. I hope this disappears soon, because it is making me feel like a paracetamol junkie.

Chronic Headaches :: Radiating Down To My Jaw Daily

I have had a chronic daily headache for the past 6 months. The headache is a pressure on both sides of my head, radiating from the temples down into my ears and around the back of my head and down into my jaw. The pressure feeling is practically a constant pain, without ever subsiding. I experience dizziness, light sensitivity, occasional ear ringing sensations, slight visual disturbances and inability to mentally focus at times.

I have now consulted 2 Neurologists, during this time I have had a CT of the head, MRI of the Head and Neck, MRA of the Neck, used Nortriptyline, Topiramate and Gabapentin, all with no prevail. I have used half a dozen over the counter pain killers, used Lidocaine Nasal Spray, had blood tested, tried 2 different muscle relaxers, had Chiropractic Manipulations, had several deep tissue massages and had my vision and teeth checked by other doctors, even used 2 different mouth guards.

Menopause :: Migraine Headaches And Pressure Headaches

I've been having migraine headaches, pressure headaches, dizziness and nausea. I kept chalking it all up to menopause. Because as most of you know, so many of these symptoms are menopause. 

Last Friday, Jan 2nd at around 7:30PM my boyfriend and I were leaving a restaurant, suddenly I started getting shocks in my right leg like my leg was falling asleep, while I was walking to the car. This shocking feeling quickly radiated up my arm and into my head, all on the right side. My boyfriend quickly started toward the hospital. On the way I lost the ability to formulate sentences and words. I would say one sentence and a totally different sentence would come out. I would try to say one word and a totally different word came out. Being a former medic the only word I wanted to relay was "stroke". It felt like someone had tasted my right side. It was the most frightening thing I'd ever experienced and I was awake for the entire ride. After getting to the hospital I was in the ER for about 3 hours. Then sent to Neurology/Stroke ward. For the next few days I had a battery of MRI's, EEG, EKG's, CT Scans, Blood Work, Ultrasounds and a Spinal (Lumbar Punch). Within 6 or so hours I was able to formulate sentences and say words again. I forced myself the entire time. My right side started getting feeling back within a few days. I still have some numbness in my right hand and am experiencing peripheral neuropathy symptoms in my right leg and foot. 

The neurologist found a mass in my brain. Thanks be to God that it is benign. I just found out yesterday that I am cancer free. However, they still don't know what the mass is. It could be a tumor or a jelly bean I stuffed in my nose as a child. (joking) But we won't know for a while.Also it might be inoperable too. I will be seeing the Dr on the 13th for an MRI Rx. In a month we'll do the MRI and see what has happened with this mass. Is the edema gone, has it shrunk or grown? Things like that.

Stress :: Daily Anxiety

So this is my first post and I figured maybe someone could help me on this because I think it's getting ridiculous and I'm just tired of feeling like this. I started college on the 26th and have been anxiety free for pretty much all of summer. Starting around Tuesday I had mini anxiety attacks that would come once a day but would literally be episodes of max 15 seconds. Thursday I had a big one, but instead of being a very quick and heavy anxiety attack that lasts just mere seconds, it turned out to be slowly building and started with me feeling uneasy, and restless, and then numb around my body. The numbness was most notable in the lips and hands. The same thing has been occurring daily since then but I would say that I am dealing with it a bit better every time but the symptoms are no less present. Does anyone else feel this way? I'll try to explain in greater detail my symptoms and a few extra ones to finish up:

Numbness of lips and arms. Heaviness in arms, especially right arm and wrist. Rightness and pressure in head. Weakness in upper body mostly. Elevated heartbeat. Neck feels weak occasionally.

Asthma :: Daily Shortness Of Breath At Rest

For two years I have been battling daily shortness of breath at rest.  Every month or so I have a bad bout with struggling to breath that lasts a few days to about a week.  I finally got a diagnoses of Bronchial Ashma.  I was never able to tolerate steroid inhalers.  I have now been put on Spiriva.  I have read that it doesn't usually work with ashma.  Is it normal to have shortness of breath daily with asthma.  I quit smoking when this all started two years ago and have not touched a cigarette since.  I was hoping to feel better.  I have never had such breathing problems as I have these last two years.  I am trying to feel confident that I was given the right diagnosis.  It is very depressing to feel I have to live this way for the rest of my life when I am only 46 years old.

Hemifacial Spasm :: Daily Fluttering In My Left Eye

I have just been diagnosed with Hemifacial Spasms at the age of 46 - since suffering from daily fluttering in my left eye. Thankfully at this stage it is still only affecting the left eye (I have had this since May last year) and hasn't spread anywhere else. I am beside myself with panic that I am going to end up abnormally deformed and disfigured very soon as it does start to include the rest of the face. Can anyone give a complete novice regarding HFS some advice. I only got the letter yesterday and don't see my Consultant until April and I am out of my mind at the outlook prognosis and what to expect. Is it really going to leave me looking disfigured permanently?
