Can't shake this headache... adult content

I've had a headache for like the fast 4 days maybe, it will not go away its always lingering. When I bend oh holy hell it hurts feels like the top of my face is going to fall off. I had a sinus infection two weeks ago could it still be from that? It's from the top of my head to under my eyes. I hate going to the doctor because I don't have insurance and then its another bill but this is ridiculous.

  • It does sound like it is from the sinus infection or allergies. Sudafed works wonders on my sinus headaches.

  • Drink a ton of water. I mean like a gallon in one day. Also if you think it could be sinus related get some Mucinex. It ill dry out your sinuses. It will dehydrate you more though, so drink even more water.

  • It is probably sinus related. Does it feel better or worse when you push on your face under your eyes? Any change in feeling means sinuses...I'd say try an over the counter medication and drink plenty of fluids. I've used alka-seltzer or other 'fizzy' meds. right before bed that seem to help. Also, try rubbing some sort of vapor rub like Vics (sp?) before going to sleep to try to break up congestion.

  • I hear you about big bills lol so here is an idea I am sure you have kids so it will be hard. Take an asprin then fill up your bath tub with warm water tilt your head back into the tub and it will feel good do it with the lights off it has worked for me.

  • Are you properly hydrated? Usually when I get a headache its because I need more water.
