horrible headache

At lunch time yesterday, I got a headache. I don't get headaches often, but I didn't think much about it, took a tylenol, and went on (I was at work). The tylenol didn't work, and I kept the headache the rest of the day. I got home and put my boys to bed and went to bed myself, because in the past when I get a headache, going to bed always takes care of it. I have been tossing and turning now for hours because my headache persisted even though I have been sleeping, and it ended up waking me up.. now its still bad, right behind my eyes and into my ears. This is uncommon for me, so I was wondering if I should be worried about it! Its just so weird having a headache during sleep!

  • Don't be worried. Are you stressed? Near your period? Regardless, drink water, take a BC Powder or Excederin with a diet coke or tea. You'll be awake but the pain should subside. Might be a migraine. If it continues you can get drugs from the ER but usually you need to catch it right away. Get dh to massage and get off the computer, dim the lights.

  • Pain is your body's signal that something is wrong. If you do not normally experience this type of headache, please see a health care provider very soon.
