  • Gosh, yes. I'm sorry. It's horrible. I used to get heads that worsened when I lay down when I headaches and migraines before getting off dairy. But my hubby will get this (his head hurting more if he bends or lies down (although it eases off when he's been laid down a few minutes) if his blood pressure goes up and/or he's stressed out.

    You know you can kangaroo paracetamol with ibuprofen (taking one and then the other 2 hours later and then the first another 2 hours after that). Pressure on the vein in your temples helps and so does a cool pack. Hope you feel better soon. Nasty. x

  • I would have to lay in a dark room with no lights on, no noise.
