Post are frequent same time everyday headaches a symtom?

are frequent same time just about everyday a sign of thyroid cancer. I know I have medullary thyroid cancer per doc but I am at a loss as far as symtoms go.
I guess it could be pollen / frequent rainfalls in pennsylvania along with probably a 100 other things ---execedrin migrane cures my headache everytime

every day this week at the same time in the afternoon (right after lunch) i have had serious migrane headaches. about an hour after i get the headache, it rains. and this has happened all week so far.

i think it's the jet stream and rain and weather. i'm in new york city so it could just be this section of the country.

maybe someone else will know if it's a symptom or not but my vote is the weather.

I hope you start feelng better soon.

I had this same-hour-everyday-headache this whole week long, but it went away after it rained yesterday... Dry weather makes me feel awful!
I usually have very strong headaches before it rains too, I guess it´s because of the change in atmospheric pressure.

Hi Joe, So when's your other surgery? Cancer doesn't normally cause headaches, thyroid levels can; but since it goes away so easily, it's more likely to be allergies. Good luck. IWL

Hi Joe,

I have been having headaches every morning when I wake up. I don't think it's due to my thyroid cancer, but I have a feeling thyroid hormone levels might have something to do with it. Have you had your hormone levels checked since your last surgery?
Did you decide not to have another surgery? Are you going to have RAI?

Take care

RAI doesn't work on this kind of cancer, but the good news is after surgery there is a blood test that will tell if they got all the cancer. This type of cancer puts out a hormone called calcitonin, which is not secreted by anything else in your body. Cure rate is good, timing(speed) is everything. Get in there Joe. Hugs, IWL
