Exclamation Headache..oucchhh - September 18th 2011, 07:07 PM

Okay so I have this really really bad headache and it hurts to the point of tears. I have had it for about a week and it's gradually worsened to the point I can't close my eyes or move them without them hurting. I have a headache pain that feels like someone is reaching behind my eyes and squeezing, pulling, twisting, banging and all sorts of things in there. It's also in my forehead and in my temples. I can't sleep at night and I've tried everything under the sun. Someone please please please help meeee.

If the headache has persisted this long, and taking pain killers hasn't helped, it's time to see a doctor. We can't diagnose you, as I'm sure you're aware, therefore I can't really say what the problem could be.

If a headache lasts more than two days, you need to see a doctor. Headaches are caused by numerous things, so it is hard to even say what it MIGHT be. As Shannon said, we can't diagnose.

It could be migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, etc, or something more severe. I had a headache for about 5 weeks with various treatments until my doctor thought "Hm, we have tried the more severe treatments, lets go with something less."

He treated me with an anti inflammatory and tension headache pills. Turns out I had so much tension for so long that the lymph nodes in my head had become severely irritated and swollen. Now I have to take tension pills often.

Other than that, try lying down or sitting up if one helps over the other. Try ice packs and heat pakcs for at least 15min at a time to see which one might help. Take some ibuprofen or other medicine, but do not take them often because your body can get addicted. The most important is to try and relax, and again, see a doctor.

Hope you feel better soon!

If it's THAT bad you need to see a doctor. There are plenty of things it could be, but it could be something very serious. You're probably going to say you can't see a doctor and all that, but you NEED to go. Head pain isn't something to mess around with. There really isn't anything more you can do.

I say you go see a doctor. A headache can be caused by a lot of things. And some of those reasons can be serious too.

Headaches have a number of causes. Such as stress and dehydration - or it could be more serious.

I have the same problem with headaches. I get them quite frequently and I get them because of my optic nerve being sos swollen it's making my eyes strain to see. It sucks but I take regular advil and sometimes it works, sometimes - not so much.

As others have said, you should probably go see a doctor for a proper diagnosis seeing as we're not doctors here so we can't diagnose you.

I hope you feel better soon!

Hi, you could try some non medicinal therapy. Try rubbing your head with just your knuckles, yes it will hurt but it will ease the tension. Plus take your thumb and the next finger and use it to press the skin on your other hand between the thumb and finger area. Again press hard.

Try relaxing with some very soft music and let it wash your cares away. Hugs x

You should see the doctor. It could be nothing but tension, or it could be something serious.
In the meantime, drink WATER! A LOT! About 2.5 litres a day.

Headaches suck, the best cure is sleep sometimes. How shoers loosen muscles and increase blood flow to the brain. Which sometimes helps.

Also... I hear sex is a good pain relief
