Have had quite bad headaches for as long as I can remember.

Some of the triggers include:
Getting too hot: If I exercise and get hot or get too hot for any reason I get a really bad headache that can last all day. Also if I am out in the sun for a while.

Running or other impact activities: as I run or even move around my head feels like it is jarring and this causes a headache.

Not enough sleep or water.

Sometime I will wake up and the headache will be there already. Most times the headache will last all day until I sleep. Aspirin and paracetamol help most of the time but not always.

The pain is like the front of my head is being compressed. It is more of a constant ache than a shooting pain although that can come later. I don't often feel sick unless I have gotten really hot and been playing sport for a while.

I went to the doc recently and he said it was migraine and gave me some tablets to take for a month then see what happens.

I have just been for an eye test and got the ok.

Does this sound like a migraine? They don't feel like what migraines sound like as not as severe. And as they are mainly brought on my physical activity - is that a migraine?

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Dehydration can cause headaches. Also with the front of your forhead, you may have some sinus and allergy issues to. So drink lots more water and try your normal things :)

Thanks for the reply. I think dehydration does play a big part but the exercise bit makes me thing it is something else.

Do you know of any good allergy tests?
