  • I know that whenever I spend a lot of time sitting up like in the rocking chair or carrying aroung my little man the I actually have a lot of back trouble that just gives me a hedache.  So if you are spending lots of nights up in the rocking chair that might be something that could be going on as well.

  • it can be a side effect. I'm on the ortho cyclen now w/o any problems, but the ortho try cyclen gave me horrible migranes. Ask your doc about a different pill.

    As other poster said, there could be other reasons too. Stress can have a big impact on headaches.

  • I have been having headaches since I gave birth 12 weeks ago. I''m on the mini-pill...I've posted questions about it on here and people say it could be my hormones still working themselves out or it could be a side-effect from the headaches aren't that bad so I'm giving it a little more time before I go to the doctor...good luck!! I know how awful they are.

  • This is a common side effect of an epidural, it is not unusual for them to last a year.
