I have had a headache for 6 days now.
It just won't end. I have a lot of stress and anxiety, and the pain is all over my head. The back, the sides, the top, the forehead, and my temples. It throbs, it pounds, it aches, it gets intense and then dull...it waxes and wanes...it moves around. I am ready to pull out my hair!!
I massaged the neck and shoulder areas but that seemed to make it worse...so I stopped doing that. I may have over-massaged it and did more harm than good. I stretched...that helped briefly.
I take Motrin for the best pain relief but I have an ulcer so I have to watch the Motrin. I use Excedrin and Tylenol - double doses of each together and that helps for about four hours and back it comes.
Has anyone else had a LOOOOOONG headache that just won't end?
I was on Prevacid and I wonder if that did something...I stopped taking it four days ago...headache still here.
