  • go to a chiropractor, your neck needs to be adjusted. also get your eyes checked. Do you wear glasses? You may also have TMJ and need to talk to your dentist. start off with the chiropractor 1st tho, they work wonders!!

  • This might be a migraine; might be sinuses; might be a dairy allergy. Take two aspirin with coffee; this should alleviate a migraine. You should go see your family health care provider to rule out anything serious.

  • When this happens to me it is a sinus infection. Especially since it is a new symptom for you, the long time, you should get it checked. I hope you feel better soon.

  • my chiropractor says "a headache is never normal, unless you're sick". if you don't have the flu or anything, you should definitely get yourself looked at.
    i hope you feel better! headaches are just no fun at all.
