Can U Get Headaches After Taking Inhalers
Inhaler headache: Headache after your inhaler can be from vascular dilation and blood flow changes in the central nervous system. Non-steroidals like over the counter Ibuprofen and naprosyn (naproxen) can be helpful for this. They might also reduce your need for asthma inhalers. Be mindful that their principal side effect is stomach acidity so you might need an antiacid type medication simultaneously. ...Read more

I've recently been prescribed a qvar brown aerosol inhaler. I've noticed while using it I've had a dull constant headache. Could this be the inhaler??
I have bad chest pain, and my upper back behind my ribs are hurting. Small headache too. I took sinus medicine, not working. took my rescue inhaler to?
Chest & back pain: This could be all related to muscle aches. Try some tylenol (acetaminophen) & hot shower as that can help relax muscles. Avoid heavy lifting. You can use topical heating pads available OTC. Check if you have a temp! If not better, go & see your PCP. If you have any heart problems, you have to seek medical attention NOW. ...Read more

Some water went down my windpipe and am coughing. Afraid of secondary drowning but i can breathe ok now. Will my asthma inhaler help if im still wheezing after awhile? Also getting a headache that doesnt mean water is on my brain does it?
Water in trachea:
The water in your wind pipe (trachea) will not drown you but will cause coughing at the time amid could transiently aggravate your asthma so the use of your inhaler in this setting would be helpful. The headache does not mean water on the brain. The headache is likely from the coughing and will pass. You will be ok.

Do I have the flu or walking pneumonia? I been coughing/phlegm and sneezing/wheezing. Headaches/coughing. I use my albuterol inhaler/otc meds. Help me
Would need an exam..: To answer your question an exam and more history would be needed. At the very least it sounds like you have a viral URI or allergies. If you are requiring your albuterol more than every 4-6 hours or the symptoms are persisting or getting worse at all, make an appointment to be seen or a consult appointment here on healthtap to better determine if an in person doctor visit is needed. ...Read more

I am on lyrica (pregabalin) 75mg twice a day for occipital neuralgia, I am finding i get headaches after taking the med. Is this likely to go away?
Hunger headaches are muscle tension/low blood sugar. Hunger causes your scalp muscles to tighten. Skipping meals, sleeping later than usual or delaying meals or snacks may result in a drop in your blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar drops, your body releases hormones to counter low glucose levels, which can trigger a headache
excedrin may help but work on that lifestyle. ...Read more
