Hi, i've jst joined this forum, its seems a great place for advice so i was wondering if anyone can give me information or advice on the types of headaches im having.
Around 7 weeks ago I had the flu and was really not well for a couple of weeks. Since then I've had a constant headache at the front of the right side of my head. It's usually a dullish pain around 4 on a 1-10 scale but can esculate to a 8 or 9 several times a day. I've also found that I am extremely tired. I'm 23 in good health, but found I need to sleep after only being up for 4 hours. I've been to the doctors have been perscribed sumatriptan , codiene and now 150mg of dicloflex a day. The only time the pain went away was after i went to the hospital and they gave me an injection of dicloflex and that lasted about 3 hours rather than 6.
I've been reading about migraines and triggers and cut out the "dangerous" food etc.
Can anyone offer advice? Would mean a lot. Briony.

Hi Briony,

Welcome to Healing Well. Sorry you are having a tough time at the moment. Have you found the sumatriptan has helped you? Remember that you can only have two doses of this in any 24 hour period! As you have had this for just 7 weeks it may be that it may be linked to the virus that you had, and it will eventually go away by itself. On the other hand, have you had anything like this in the past?

The best advice I can give you is to keep checking in with your Doctor if there is anything you are unsure about, and read up as much as you can about 'headache' and the different types to educate yourself as much as possible! We can support you here as best we can, but we cannot give medical advice as we are not qualified to do so!

take care
