The only thing that can relieve a headache for me is ibuprofen.
I am allergic to aspirin (it makes me faint) and tylenol does absolutely nothing for me, I might as well eat an M&M. I find if I can take 1-2 Advils at the first hint of a headache, I can usually halt it from progressing and requiring more ibuprophen later. I take it with some milk and maybe a slice of bread/toast.
Also, sometimes I know an incipient headache is due to hunger or dehydration and if I can eat/drink right away I can avoid the headache and need for advil.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. (asacol, hi-doses pred, colazol, 6MP=jaundice, remicade) No remission.
5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's.
Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and am remaining manageable with 2tabs Immodium and a probiotic capsule every 12hrs.
