Ok well hello all, had headaches since i was 14 but started on the Naramig etc at 25 when i had 1 for 4 days. anyways as ive got older now 37 i seem to be getting them everyday, Not to migraine level but dull acheing.
I can sleep ok and find if im laid down first thing before i get up i cant feel anything in the migraine area, i feel normal, soon as i stand up within 5 mins i can feel the ache comming. i then shower and go to work and its there all day. sometimes generates to a headache that imigran gets rid of sometimes if i sit out the dull thudding it subsides by 5pm. soooo Ive tried toprimax, beta blockers pizo amatrptyline etc, but find all the drugs the specilists give you slow u down and make u un emotional or irritabel. so i sacked all of them off and went cold turkey. Now regarding rebound imigran headaches i can at sometimes go 3 weeks without 1 to then follow it up with 1 a day for this stupid dull thudding headache, that im ok to work with but i dont fucntion right as im lazy and always thinking about it. so i doubt its them. So i tried a test this week with suger. Before i went to bed i had some crunchy nut conrflakes and a cup of tea with 4 sugers, i woke to a smaller version of said heads, i then stopped at the garage on the way and got some lucozade, by 12pm i felt ok no head at all.
Not a good way to go all the suger but it gave me a result, so this week im trying it more. and i,ll report back.
but the way my heads are its as though my body is craving somthing if that be imigran Suger or low levels of some fluid,
Does sleep let out toxins ? arrrgh so maddening not knowing what it is :(
Does anybody else have these daily heads where if u can get past the full day youll have an 80% chance of it subsiding. Are there any tests you can have above the low suger ones that can tell what your bodys crying for ?
anyways sorry for rant, but you know how it is they suck bad.
thanks for the ears
