Not necessarily: In deference to the advertising industry, fever is a benefit to a child fighting an illness. Increasing blood flow & breathing provides fuel to make antibodies & cuts down germ reproduction.

History of migraines & carotidynia, having carotid headaches all day everyday for almost a week, today had headache w/ metallic taste in mouth. Ideas?

Metallic taste: A metallic taste usually means that the nerve that helps with taste has been inflamed by whatever process that is causing the headaches. Migraines do not typically cause carotidynia. Carotidynia is a diagnosis of exclusion. This means that it is usually the last diagnosis after other processes have been ruled out. It is an inflammation of the carotid sheath and is painful to manipulation. ...Read more

Which is better for a migraine feverfew vs Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil ?

Which is better for a migraine feverfew vs Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil ?

It depends: Feverfew will do nothing to help an acute migraine but if taken daily has been shown to prevent migraines. For an acute migraine Tylenol works better for some, Advil (ibuprofen) better for others, though Excedrin Migraine which combines acetaminophen, aspirin and caffeine is a good choice too. Many herbs, stress reduction and diet changes can also prevent migraines. See http://tinyurl.com/zf6hg23 for more. ...Read more
