Exclamation Terrible Headaches!

For the last couple of months I've been getting really bad headaches everyday and I'm really worried about what could be causing them. It could just be stress as I do get tension headaches but these seem much worse and don't go away as easily with tablets. They make me feel kind of sick too and make it hard to do my school work. I've been worrying that it's a brain tumour but am I just being stupid? Please tell me what you think!

Re: Terrible Headaches!

When I get SEVERE headaches/migrains, advil/asprin/tylenol do not work for me. Sounds weird but alka-seltzer totally flushes the worst headache away in less than 10 min! A friend of mine recommended this when I was 12, and I thought she had seven heads... but even years later, it still works! The headaches I get are severe, and this really helps me. However, my dr told me of a recent study that found that alka-seltzer spikes high blood pressure to females in the 20-30 yr.old group. My pressure is fine, and I take this frequently. But just to be safe, you may want to consult your dr. (My hubby is a physician, and said active ingredient in alka-selzer is asprin anyway.. so I think it's ok).

Re: Terrible Headaches!

You need to be evaluated as many things can be causing this, but you need to rule out all of the serious possible causes. See a neurologist or headache specialist.
