What other symptoms came with your headache?

Did you accumulate these other symptoms or issues over time or was the onset of everything concurrent?

Re: What other symptoms came with your headache?

None eh? How fortunate I had non migrain type headaches. I started getting tinitus about 5 months ago with pressure in my head. It came and went. About a month ago I got my first exercise or sex headache. Up until then I had worked out 5 days a week for the preceeding several months with no headaches. I tore my shoulder and bicep so stopped working out alktogether for a couple of weeks and it was after that the headaches started.
The headaches came on sudden and severe enough the I went to Emergency. They did a CT scan and a lumbar puncture and then sent me home. I saw my MD a few days later and he said 2 Advil and 2 Tylenol an hour before sex or exertion should work. He was correct but so much for any spontaneity
Yesterday while working in from of a computer for a few hours a new symptom popped up. Wavy lines or maybe watery distortion at the periphery of my vision. This freaked my out quite a bit so I popped Tylenol and Advil in anticipation of a headache event of some kind. I threw in a couple of childrens aspirin as a thinner. After a nervous 15 minutes things cleared up. There was no dizziness, no real pain, and no disorientation so I am thinking this side effect is from the headache family of side effects rather than anything more sinister.
I will see my Dr again in a weeks time, but in the interim I am doing back to 5 day a week exercise because when I was that active I had only tinitus.
The head aches move around, and are sometimes stabby in the top of my head when I cough. I almost thing stress related except for that.
Anyone else get a bonus symptom thrown in with their headache?

Re: What other symptoms came with your headache?

Well, after years of thinking my headaches were sinus related, I've just been diagnosed as having migranes.

I don't have the typical symptoms...for me, it is pain in my nose area, cheeks, down into my teeth or eye area. I also have nausea and vomiting. Something new that has popped up recently is pain in my ears.

I'm still not 100% convinced I've found my problem...but I'm getting closer I think.

The vomiting for me is the thing that really gets to me.
