I have had headaches everyday since Christmas Eve, ugh! Has this ever happened to you? Maybe its something hormonal?

  • Are you getting ready to start your period?
    Stress going on?
    Do you have allergies?
    Can't say its a migraine without having a doctor diagnose you!!!
    If you had a migraine... you will be seeing flashing lights, seeing grey cloudy, can't stand smells, sounds makes you want to scream and lights makes it worse. A person with Migraines will want to stay in the DARK, can't be around light and sounds and in so much pain that it drives them crazy. If you are on this computer typing, able to sit up and do everyday things... its not a migraine! Trust me... I am a person that has been diagnosed by a Doctor and its on records and I'm on Prescription medications for it. I have to take 3 different pills daily and give myself shots when my migraines starts up, and if I don't give myself a shot in time then I have to go straight to the ER to get a shot that only the Hospitals ER or a Headache specialist has. It Sucks!!!

  • Have you tried massage or chiropractic? Also, maybe you should get your hormones checked. You might need some progestin supplements. this is a common cause for women having frequent headaches or migranes.
