  • have had migraines that last three days
    had rx called treximent (sp?) worked great
    i took red dye # 40 out of my diet, i no longer have migraines
    lookon food labels..LAKEdyes can cause headaches= red 40 NOT just in RED foods, in LOTS of things

    if you have never had one last this long, maybe call doctor, could be something else causing headache

  • Excedrin migrane. And try to figure out what is causing it. Do you smoke? Allergies, food or otherwise? Neck problems? Sress? Is there a possible gas leak near you?

  • I have suffered from headaches for over a year now & they are on a daily basis.I never used to get headaches & when this started i knew i needed to get it checked out immediately. I will be seeing a neurologist soon when our health insurance kicks in. Wish i was more help.

  • I get migraines frequently. Some are from caffeine and that could be having one cup one day and not another. I also get them from hormones shifting. I get them just before and just after my period. I usually use Excedrin Migraine and it helps (the generic form works just as well). Good luck and I hope you fell better. Try putting an ice pack on your head and sitting in the dark for about 20 min. You would be surprised at how much that may help.

  • I had a headache for seemed like a month and nothing would help finally it got so bad I went to the doctor becuz it got to the point I coudnt look at any light, I could hardly walk straight....well they found out it was non-viral meningitis and they kept me for 3 days....But for a long time I just thought it was because I was pregnant....I never would have guessed that was what was wrong. If it gets worse maybe you should tell the doctor.

  • Possibly an orbital scan could check it out?
