headache worse when laying down??
here's the deal--
4 days ago, i got a headache about mid-afternoon. nothing too out of the ordinary, took some advil, and went about my business. By wednesday night, I was forced to lay down in bed, lights off, ice pack on forehead, until I fell asleep. Thursday morning, headache was still there...and lasted all day. Friday, headache pretty much still there, worsened throughout the day. Seemed like the pain started off in the front right area of my skull. Took some Excedrin and it went away for a while. Now we get to Saturday...headache is only around when I go from sitting to standing positions, or vice versa. And when I move, I mean severe throbbing ensues. After I've been sitting (or standing) for a while though, it goes away. Well now I'm trying to go to sleep...and the darn headache is now interfering with that. It hurts worse when I lay down than when I sit up...and the pain is in my neck and the back of my head. I can't "sleep it off" because I can't lay down to fall asleep. I've never been diagnosed with migraines nor have I had a 4 day headache before. Any ideas?
Any advice would sincerely be appreciated. Thanks.
