I was released from hospital yesterday for OD on tylenol (acetaminophen) been having severe pain in the head...feels like head going to explode mainly on left side?

Liver & brain: Tylenol (acetaminophen) causes liver damage, and, as a result, may cause swelling of your brain. Because there's no information here about how severe your tylenol (acetaminophen)-related injury is, I recommend you return to the Emergency Department now and / or contact the physician who treated you. This headache may represent a significant issue depending on timing and severity with respect to how tylenol (acetaminophen) affected you. ...Read more

Magnesium: Hi,

Headaches caused by the muscles in your neck, face and scalp can be helped with high doses of magnesium. Take an epsom salt bath 2 cups for 30 mins every night and magnesium chelate 1 cap/night and increase until you get soft stool. This will be the amount of magnesium you should take daily. If this doesn't work, consult me to find the answer. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor to exclude treatable issues like high blood pressure.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

What is a cluster headache? I often get migraines that last about 10 to 12 hours and it feels like my head is going to explode. It stops normal tasks.

Slipped and hit head first on floor 2yrs ago had moderate pain in head & neck now headaches are severe & feel like head is going to explode?

Did you get checked: Out after the fall? Have you had any other head trauma or neurologic signs? If no other changes, suggest seeing a physician and having them take a look at your cervical spine as well as rule out any other serious issues. After a fall, many times docs forget to look at the neck musculature (too busy trying to rule out life threatening issues!) but this can lead to long term neck issues/headaches. ...Read more
