Sick for 11 years

I'm not sure I'm in the right forum but need help so please re-direct if needed. I've suffered severe headaches, with pain and pressure that radiates down my neck into my back. I still have very heavy periods but over time have figured out the timing of the pain to begin a few days before my period and occasionally at the end of my lengthy period also. Today is a very bad day with pain (can hardly open my eyes) and also weak, a bit nauseous and tired. I only take half a vicodin on bad days but had to take it twice today. I'm sensitive to meds. I'm 48 and this began in 2001. Been to a number of docs and spent a couple days at Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbera last fall. Nobody has been able to help me so far.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Sick for 11 years

Hi Victoria, so sorry you are going thru this and its been a while since I have since I am now post-menopausal and dealing with the other stuff, like hot flashes and stuff. But back when I was having my period and feeling really bad I had one dr. tell me to start taking Naprosen (if you can take it) 3-4 days before I started to help w/ the inflammation and it really did help. I know now they also have lots of other things available to heav bleeders like ablation and things. Hope you feel better soon (((((HUGS))))) CJ
