I'm a regular in the chronic pain section, but this is my first time posting here. I'm a 44 year old male and I've been getting headaches every day, usually multiple times daily for at least 6 months and maybe a year now. I've been taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen to treat the headaches...Additionally, I'm taking 10 mg of Oxycodone 4-6 times daily for a host of other chronic pain issues. I never take the Oxycodone for the headaches specifically. I just heard of something called "Rebound Headaches" which apparently can occur with prolonged use of certain pain relievers to treat chronic headaches. Both Ibuprofen & Oxycodone are listed as possible contributors of "Rebound Headaches." Is anyone familiar with "Rebound Headaches?" I would appreciate all feedback regarding chronic headaches. Thanks.
