Killer headache help.

Took Advil two hours ago... nothing. : (

My head feels tight like squeezing, my eyes are now throbbing they feel pressure, the headache is all around my whole head sides top front back.

I've never had a headache that stopped me from doing things. Like I was getting the kids ready to run an errand, and I had to put it off and sit down. : (

  • Also drink tons of water!!! many headaches are a side effect of not being well hydrated!!

  • sounds like a tension headache. But, for me nothing works better than Excedrin Migraine. Even my prescription migraine meds don't work as fast or as well on them than this stuff.

  • Excedrin Extra Strength and Migraine and any variation are all the same. They do work for me too. And Benedryl allergy sinus headache. Also warm or cold compresses.

  • Actaully it sounds like a migraine. Try taking an Aleve and drinking some coffee. Caffeine and Aleve have been shown to help with some migraines. Migraine meds usually work best if you can catch the headache right at the start. Once they get going it is hard to stop them. If you really can't function and you have insurance, you can go to an Urgent Care or an ER. They can give you a shot of demerol. I've had to do that before.
