Question Daily Headache

Hi everyone! I am struggling here with headaches. I have a history of occasional migraines, am on verapamil daily to help prevent them, and am on Imitrex to "bust" a migraine up when I get one. A couple weeks ago I started with a migraine, took Imitrex and it helped some. The migraine went away but I was left with a steady, mild-to-moderate headache every day for many hours each day. I have tried Imitrex, but it doesn't seem to help this non-migraine. I cannot take NSAIDs (ibuprofen, aspirin, etc) due to Crohn's Disease, so I am left with acetaminophen (Tylenol). I have been avoiding taking Tylenol since I know it can cause rebound headaches. I know my eyesight is ok (just went to the eye doctor recently), and I have no sinus symptoms. I don't have any neck or back pain. The headache seems to be the front of my head on both sides.

Any suggestions for this daily headache?

Re: Daily Headache

I have the same problems as you do, can't take asprin either. I get migrains very rarely but get 2 or 3 headaches a day. The only pain med that I have found to work is Tylenol 3. I only take one and it works quickly.
