Hi, so I'm not one to have frequent headaches. In fact, prior to recently, the most frequently I would suffer from headaches was once or twice every three months. However for the past two moths (or just under) I have had a headache every day. The times of day that these occur differ, sometimes I will wake up with one but the majority of time, they will occur after noon. They begin like a dull ache behind my eyes and around my temples and progress into a thumping like sensation that after a while becomes unbearable. I have been taking painkillers almost every day to cope but I am worried that after a while I will become immune to them. Could this happen? Any ideas on what could be causing these headaches? I am not under any extra stress, although my wisdom teeth have been causing me a little pain, could they be related? I really am so frustrated with these headaches because everyday tasks are becoming much more difficult. Should I see a doctor soon? Thank you for any suggestions!

Do you drink diet drinks? Chew gum or eat breath mints? Eat yoplait light yogurt, drink Crystal Light? If so, there's a very harmful chemical in these items, called aspartame. It's loosely considered an artificial sweetener and is in 6000+ food items along with many drinks. It's in Tang, Jello, some candy, so many, many food products, you need to read labels to be sure it's not in there - it goes by several names: Nutra Sweet, Phenylalanine, Acesulfame-K, Sunette, Aspartic Acid, etc. Avoid it. It can cause headaches. Along with 91 other side effects.

Soribitol isn't any better for us and it's in a lot of candy, Crest, Colgate and Aquafresh toothpaste. I now buy Tom's toothpaste (purchased at a health food store but now I see that Kroger's sells it).

If you have this in your system, eliminate it. Google it and you'll see all the warnings for it, despite them the FDA thinks it's safe for us to ingest.

Try taking a small bulb syringe filling it with the fluid from 2 aleve liquigels mixed with warm coffee. The coffee is to thin out the thick liquid. Inject this as an enema. lying down in the sims position. Hold this for about 20 minutes, then do a 2-quart coffee enema. Hold this for as long as you can comfortably do so.

Yes ! most deffinately your wisdom teth if you still have them and they are very impacted or erupting through the gingiva can cause severe Migraine/headache. if wisdom teeth have no room and are impacted they can cause you to clench your jaw and you don't even realize you are doing it. You should go see an Oral surgeon if your teeth are bothering you this could be the cause, or it could be something entirely different. IMHO :) Just trying to help another Migraine sufferer. I know what it is like, I live it daily and they really suck every bit of energy out of you.

The pain killers can be causing the headaches to rebound. You should speak to your dr about how to stop rebound headaches and which medications won't cause a rebound headache.
Nail patella syndrome, osteoarthritis, complex migraines, eosinophilic esophagitis, major depressive disorder, OCD, and fibromyalgia, IBS

Meds: flovent 220 mcg, flexeril 10 mg prn, tramadol prn, buspirone prn, and vicodin prn.
