Severe headaches

Postby andypandy08 » Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:04 am

Does anyone out there in fog land suffer with severe headaches ? I get pain in the back of my skull and the doctor has prescribed DF118,S which I take 4 times a day

I suppose it's part of the illness however this has just started, cant take to much medicines as I am on different tablets for my heart condition too, I am on gabapentin, Amytryptalin , Codrydramol setralin and now df118s for my condition (not been diagnosed yet) however show all the classic symptoms

really foggy today and its foggy out too !

Has anyone checked you out for myofascial trigger points (it would feel like hard or knotty muscles). I've found these in the neck can cause a lot of headaches and specialist massage really helps.

ive only just started getting headaches over the past week or so, feel a bit like pressure head aches but more in the back of my head rather than my forehead. it feels like some one is pumping fluid into my head and its gonna explode :shock:
i also found that moving around makes them worse again like my head is full of fluid and its sloshing around... really strange!

I get something similar when the OA in my neck flares up... it feels like there's too much pressure in my head, my brain is too big :lol:

I would get it checked out... also anything with codeine in is liable to make it worse as headaches is a side effect of codeine :(

It's it due to myofascial trigger points then it could literally be radiating from your neck.

Hi

I have suffered migraine for years and know how you feel but it may be the codine based pain killer you are taking thats causing the headaches.

If you google medication overuse hedache or rebound headache you will find some info on this.

Hope this helps
