Really bad headaches - January 24th 2018, 01:15 AM

Ever since I was little I would get headaches a lot and they would always hurt so much. I would cry because of how bad they hurt. I haven't had headaches in awhile.

But since Sunday I have been having really bad headaches they are like splitting headaches. They might be sinus headaches but I'm not sure. I have been taking three strong fast acting Tylenol every four hours and the headaches aren't going away at all. Ever since I could remember Tylenol and Advil never seemed to work and I have been told by Doctors I can take three instead of two and it usually works but it isn't this time. I was wondering if anyone knows of anything I could do to try and stop these headaches.

I will be emailing my Dr tomorrow if they continue.I just want to know if there is anything I can do in the mean time.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars

It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Re: Really bad headaches - January 24th 2018, 04:30 AM

Hey there,

I get migraines and headaches and it is rare that any over the counter medication works. A lot of the time when I get headaches I end up having to lay down in hopes that it won't turn into a migraine. Sometimes lying in a dark-ish room does help especially if I turn the fan on because my headaches/migraines can make me dizzy which leads to feeling over heated for some reason.

I have also had some luck with rubbing my temples or where ever else the headache is occurring. This doesn't always work but depending on the type of headache I am having it can.

My dad gets migraines and used to have to go to the ER for them but he used to try and get the headaches to go away; one of the things he would do is put a wet wash cloth over his face. I guess this helped to make things darker and the coolness would sometimes help with the nausea and, occasionally, it would help make the migraine less intense so he could avoid the ER.

I am not sure if any of this will work for you because there are so many different types of migraines/headaches. These might be worth trying though? I really hope that you start feeling better though. I know how painful headaches/migraines can be.

Best regards.

Went to the doctors and she said it isn't a sinus infection, it is probably related to my jaw, She asked if I grind my teeth and I said I don't but I do clench my jaw and she said that could cause it. So you can close this.

Clenching your jaw can definitely cause headaches. Hope you can find ways of remedying it!

I'll go ahead and close the thread. PM me if you want it to be re-opened
