Hi there! I have been having a headache and head pressure for the last three days now. I am 18 years old and no I am not pregnant. First of all the first day my migraine was so bad I felt like I had to throw up. Dizziness consisted throughout the day but I thought it would go away the next day. I took a extra strength Advil and went to sleep. The next morning I woke up fine but as I did stuff during the day the head pressure and headache came back not as severe though , I took another Advil. And went to sleep (I have been very sleepy lately) . Today I woke up with head pressure and a headache and feeling very dizzy. I ignored it and went on with my day. But when I started to clean and do things I felt extremely terrible and I needed to lay down, again the feeling where I had to throw up was there again. I am contemplating on going to the emergency room but something's I think I'm overreacting. Please help. I don't know what to do. smhair

Hi Courtneey. I'm new here myself and noticed that you hadn't received any responses to your post. How are you feeling now? Curious if you've ever had a migraine or if you're just wondering if what you are/were experiencing might have been one. Let us know how you're doing, I hope you're feeling better.

Take some magnesium (citrate is my favorite). 200-800mg. B vitamins help others. Ask your doctor about a rescue migraine med

When I was 21 I was experiencing severe neck pain and headaches so bad that I would throw up after a few hours. I wasn't able to bend over because the pain and pressure was so excruciating I felt like me head would pop off. I couldn't even sleep on my back because the back of my head hurt so bad. It turned out to be scoliosis of the spine. I found an amazing chiropractor that had me feeling better in just a few weeks and in no time the pain was gone altogether. Scoliosis is a wrong curve in the spine and that tends to pinch the nerves that pass through the spine causing the pain. Fix the curve and problem solved.

If this is not the issue step two, I would get checked out for TMJ syndrome. How does your jaw feel and work? Have you ever had any major dental work done or been in any kind of accident? You can google this for the long list of symptoms. This syndrome can also cause a lot of pain issues that doctors misdiagnose. If you suspect this to be the issue make sure you go to a specialist that is following up with you ever two or three weeks not someone who is just sticking a night guard in your mouth and nothing more.

I hope all of this helps. I know what it is to be in constant pain and not know what to do about it and pain meds don't help in these instances. Good luck.

Welcome to the forum.

You could be starting to experience horamonal migraines that come in certain times of the menstration cycle.

It could also be the barametric pressure effecting you.

I suggest to begin at your family doc and if the headaches continue, find a neurologist that specilizes in migraines.

At the top of this forum in the "resource' thread there is a link to a migraine diet. I strongly suggest you take a look at that. A change of diet can be huge in preventing them. Staying away from soda, chewing gum, red and yellow food dyes in process foods are another big help.

I wish you comfort and strength.
