When headaches take you down

Headaches used to bother me a lot when I was younger. No one ever figured out where they came from, either. Sometimes they weren't so bad but lasted so long that they were really bothersome. Others were truly debilitating. I remember one outing with Britt when we had first started dating. We had driven out to one of our gorgeous beaches, about an hour from here. Just as we got there, a very bad headache hit. Britt went exploring on the beach and I stayed in the car with my eyes closed and the seat reclined, trying to rest enough to let it go. But it didn't. Trying to drive back home was a horror show. I had to keep pulling over to close my eyes for a while. But we got home safe and sound and I went to bed for about an hour before things settled enough for me to drive Britt to his house. I have had a bad headache all day today. Not like that one from years ago, but bad enough to be bothersome. I'm going to head to bed early tonight. Hope you're all doing well! -Claudia-

Thanks. I hope so, too. Being online is just making it worse.

@CRK109 yes I find that too when I have a headache. You need to rest and close your eyes.

Hope some rest gets rid of your headache. My mom used to suffer from migraines

I get headaches as well. They seem to have lessened as I have aged, but the migraines haven't. Sure wish those would go away.

Migraines really are the worst. I'm not sure what had caused mine but they were at my old job and once I left, I never had any ever again. So obviously, something in the building wasn't healthy for me. No telling what's triggering yours, but I do hope it stops soon!

@CRK109 I am pretty sure it's sugar, when I eat to much in a day I eventually get a migraine. At least that's what I think.

I had your same problem when I was young, terrible headaches that lasted from a few hours to a few days. Now it only happens time by time.

I know so many people plagued by headaches frequently and my heart goes out to them. Not sure what brought on that particular headache the other day, but I was thrilled when it left me and it hasn't come back.

Headaches can really get you down I suffer from Migraines all the time and BOY so they suck! I have had a small one all day today and hoping I caught it before it was to late. I have bad allergies so that is the cause of my problem unfortunatly and I often times forget to take the allergy meds.....

At my last job, I got migraines a lot. Funny that the migraines stopped when I left the job. Something in the building was obviously making me sick. Today I don't know if it's all the rain we've been getting or what, but I'm just going to head to bed and hope that solves the problem.

@CRK109 I had that problem but then again they kept putting me outside in the "garden center" so I know where the problem came from there. Glad that it eased off for you after you left that job though! Hope you feel better I am thinking of getting off soon and doing the same just waiting for the kids to fall asleep first...

Thanks, Marie! It actually went away a little while ago. Not sure why it came and not sure what made it leave. But I'm thrilled now!

when i get a headache, i tend to clench my jaws, which of course makes it worse!

Hope it passes. I used to get fairly bad headaches, but seldom these days. I have been getting regular sleep and I think that helps a lot

I'm sorry you have such a bad headache. They can be very debilitating.
