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.
