Re: ive had a headache 4 5 days

Have you tried different ways to treat it? If so and if it's severe, I'd see a doctor. There can be various reasons so it's hard to tell. Often times, allergies can cause headaches or there might be some kind of trigger that you aren't aware of (for example, chocolate is one for me). Also, are you drinking plenty of water? I find that to get rid of a tricky headache, I have to take some Excedrin Migraine. If I don't have it available, I take Advil or another similar medication and have an energy drink. Often times, the caffeine helps me get rid of my headache. Good luck!

I hope your headache has resolved now. But in the future remember this... if you have migraines and it goes beyond 72 hours you need to be seen by your doctor or at the ER for treatment of Status Migranosis.

I don't know, I suffer from transformed migraines and my neurologist tells me the only real treatment is supression therapy. Maybe transformed really is different. My longest migraine was just short of 3 months long. I had just under 6 weeks of semi relief, and now it has been back for almost a week. I am waiting for a call back from my neurologist now about the next step.

Yes, I would definitely talk to your neurologist more about that if they are lasting so long quite regularly! I don't know how I could function with a migraine for 3 months! I vomit and am very out of it feeling so bad when I have them. I hope your neurologist is able to help you out! I'd contact them soon if they don't get back to you shortly.
