Recently I have been getting pretty bad headaches the most pain is between my eyes and my forhead. Once they start they will not go away for more then 24hrs. This happens every other day for a couple weeks now. I'll go to bed with a headache, wake up with it, it will last all day till I go to sleep and ill wake up fine for the day then it will come back that night. I have tried tylonal, ibprophen, excedrin sp, and asprin, I've tried it all nothing with touch it.
I drink nothing but water and a ton of it, and I eat.
I'm not sure what is going on. Why are they lasting so long and nothing will touch it.
No health insurance and no doctor. I'm not the er person unless I really need to.

Sounds like migraines maybe.

Put a cold or warm cloth over your eyes when you feel it coming on. Drink something with caffeine. Caffeine opens up the veins and arteries in the head, increasing blood flow thus reducing headache. Then keep fluid intake up by having a glass of water every couple of hours.

Usually county health clinics have sliding scale treatment, you could go see one of them for it.

Thank you, what has caffeine that would not affect my weight? I cut soda and coffee out for that.

Migraine. A headache will go away with Tylenol, but not a migraine. Try taking some ibuprofen with a caffeinated drink, then lay down with a cool cloth over your eyes. It might help, it usually helps me when I get a migraine.

One drink isn't going to hurt.


When did you cut the soda and caffiene? You could be getting a withdrawal headache if it was recently.

Could it possibly be a sinus headache? You should try Sudafed and see if that works. I get migraines often and the pain is different, it's also accompanied by nausea and vomiting. TMI, but I've gotten pain similar to the one you described, on my forehead and between my eyes. And I notice I build up a lot of mucus in my nose and throat when that happen, I'm assuming it's pressure on the sinuses.

Do you have allergies?...sorry if I'm annoying you with questions. Its just migraines can be caused by a lot of different things. So if you can figure out if there's been anything new going on lately you might be able to figure out what's causing them.

Tea. Green tea, black teas. That kind of thing.
