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?
