headaches

I cannot seem to catch a break.
I had another migraine last night.
Pretty sure I've had a headache every day for the last week.

I decided to go to Wal-Mart on my lunch break to get some headache medicine. And guess what? They all have the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee! I wanted to cry, right there in the middle of the aisle.

I took Tylenol every day for the last week and it obviously didn't work. So, I'm gonna try naproxen sodium this week.

This is day 8 and I REFUSE to drink tea/soda!
I'm gonna do this!
Even if I pull my hair out in the process!

Try Aleve. That always works better than Tylenol for me...

Sorry to hear about the headaches..at least the meds don't have all the other bad stuff in it that the soda or tes does. Cold turkey may not be the best thing for you, not saying to drink it, but take the meds if you have a headaches every other day and see how it does. Good luck and hope you find something that works. You might try advil, maybe its tention from working out thats cause your headaches, advil is the best for those kind. It worked for me when tylenol didn't.

Welcome to the HYC!

I have to avoid caffeine, too and a lot of migraine medicines have it. One of the prescriptions my doc gave me had aspartame in it and that's one of my migraine triggers, too! I did finally find a prescription med that works for me. Definitely go to the doctor if you don't get relief from OTC meds. Keep flushing your system with lots of water. Hang in there.
