Headache - Migraine?

Monday, January 16, 2012

I'm not feeling well today. I was fine when I woke up today. Not long after I arrived at work I started getting one of my funny headaches. I get this odd sensation by my right temple, like something cool is running down the side. My guess is that maybe it's a muscle contracting around a nerve. When it releases, I end up with a splitting headache. So, I took Tylenol in prep. Normally it doesn't last long and goes away. But not today, ended up sick in the bathroom. Went home, to a dark room, took a muscle relaxant, slept. Felt better when I woke up. But I am now having that weird sensation again.

Does anyone else have a similar headache? It sounds like a migraine, but I do not have migraines.

    I've never had this type of a headache before. I have had migraine type headaches. No new meds. I even checked my BP and it's actually dropped to a normal range with SP. I've been drinking more tea than usual this last week at work since it has been cold. But this weekend I didn't need any to stay warm. So, caffeine withdrawal? I am definitely not going to go cold turkey, but will gradually reduce my intake.

    Ouch, sounds painful, and very much like a migraine. Have you ever had those "funny headaches" checked out? I don't have migraines, but my mother did - bad headache, light-sensitive, nausea. Lying in a dark quiet room helped - & when she puked, she got better (but it didn't work if she made herself puke). I had "migraine type" headaches when I was on indocin - apparently 10% of the population get severe headaces from it. Any new meds? emoticon
