Re: is it normal to get headaches everyday?
I have been suffering from one of my many headaches for 7 weeks now. I was on Inderal, then they switch me to Depakote Monday. Ugh! I still have a headache. My Neurologist called me back and put me on ANOTHER Steroid Burst.
I have headaches day in and day out. If I am lucky I will have pressure in the mornings, but by Noon it is a stabbing wanting to die headache. I feel like I am going to puke 95% of the time.
In my opinion I don't think any kind of pain is normal, in the sense that there has to be something causing the pain. I have had several Doctors tell me to SUCK IT UP and have said that there is nothing wrong with my nervous system, Well great DOC, then take the pain away.
I would advise seeing your Primary Care. There are lots of good meds out there like Maxalt, Imitrex, etc. If you are like me, then nothing works. When I started off with my headaches, I was takeing 1600 mg Ibuprofen 4 times a day. Now I get the good stuff like Demeral and Darvocets. There is some help out there.
