Just wanted to share with friends that could relate with how I'm feeling today.

It is my dh 50th b-day today and we are having a bbq party at my mom's (about an hour away) house to celebrate. There will be at least 15 of us. I have this 'vascular' headache going on, partly my neuralgia is affecting my face. cry shakehead

I have already taken my Ultracet, I do not want to take anything more potent than that, cuz I want to be with it at the party. I tried heat on my neck this morning, took a sudafed just for the heck of it. I woke up to pain just above my eyebrows and the temple areas and the back of my head/behind my ears.

For the past two weeks at least, my head has been this way, except for throbbing and pain in my face, as in my cheek bone, behind my eyeball(like it is going to pop out) and my jaw and teeth.

Well just wanted to share, wish me well with this party. I'm nervous about the noise level cuz I am already sensitive to it.

Sorry for the ramblin'....Thanx for 'listening'. Btw, I am only letting my daughter in on how I'm feeling today. I don't want to be sounding like the whiner. Especially since my mom and dad are doing this for me cuz I couldn't bare all the folks here. Feelin' a little guilty about that. shakehead

So sorry you feel so badly! I feel for you with the facial pain - I had a sinus infection a few years ago that caused inflamation of my facial nerves - can't remember exactly how - all I know is I wanted someone to knock me out! You are a tough cookie to deal with that!

Hope your day gets better and you can enjoy the party.

I hope you have a fun day, Binki.  I understand those vascular headaches completely.  I had them for years and it was from a combination of TMJ and that  trigeminal nerve would get inflammed, and the estrogen I was taking.  They are nasty and I hope it cuts you a break so you can enjoy the birthday party.
