Diary plus Doctor: Most people get a headache at some time, such as from colds, infections, lack of sleep, excess driving, long hours on the computer, stress at work, etc. A bad or increasing headache, recurrent or unstoppable headache, weird headache, or one with other worrisome symptoms needs an exam. Doctors like a headache diary: which days headaches come, which meds tried, relationship to foods and activities.

There's been a change in the format of setting up telemedicine visits over the past few weeks on HealthTap. Instead of going to the URL I directed you to use above please call CUSTOMER SUPPORT at 650-376-6110 to schedule a LIVE consultation if you'd care to discuss your question in more detail. Cheers!.

Headaches: come in several types, e.g., muscular, vascular, cluster. Stress headaches are unpleasant but fairly common. Please start w/a visit to your doctor to rule out medical conditions. Then consider seeing a clinical psychologist for stress management training such as biofeedback or clinical hypnosis. (See www.asch.net for referrals). Peace and good health.
