A terrible Headache... that doesn't want to go Away

Lately, I have started having sudden headaches that don't go away even with normal dose of pain killers. For several months, I have been spending a lot of time staring at the computer screen. I begin to feel it has something to do with that. But, I am not sure. I do feel kind of strained after a few hours on the computer. Any safe way to work online? Anything quick, that I can try? Someone in similar situation? Please share.

hey my sister is also addict surfing in the internet. she has eyeglasses before but it was lost. then she is surfing and playing in the internet almost 3 hours a day. she always drink pain killers but still she has headache. so my mom decided to find a doctor an EENT. the result was, her eye lens are increased so she need to wear again her eyeglasses. so better try to visit EENT doctor or Eyes, Ears,Nose, Throat doctor.

I got my eyes checked recently; they are Ok with glasses. No reading trouble. It is just the strain that builds up and finally turns into acute headache. Hope to find something soon to remedy it.

is it migraine?? how many hours your sleeping time? only headache?? visit the doctor and maybe he will give you a better medicine. there are a lot of pain medication of course the doctor knows that so he can prescribe you the high dosage or he can identify the cause of your headache. so better visit the doctor

I am managing by taking frequent time outs and splashing cold water on eyes. It definitely helps. Thanks for your comments.

There are a lot of reasons why we had that terrible headache like yours. My experience in facing the computer conclude that too much focus will result to eye strain. Why not allow only a few hours facing it in order to recover the pain you felt in your eyes. Even myself showed redness of too much exposure to the glare of the computer. What I did was controlling my time facing it. Also looking once in while may help.

I am managing by working only shorter duration at a stretch. I repeatedly get up to do something else and come back. Thanks for sharing.

I hope this will work. When you have a headache get a basin with hot-warm water and soak your feet, then just relax and let the water do the work. You can also close your eyes and dont think too much. Get well soon.
