I get headaches nearly ever day for about 20 years. Tracked every aspect of these with no patterns. How can I get rid of them?

Treat neck too!: Chronic daily headaches can be quite a challenge. Since most ha are cervicogenic, coming from the neck, you must treat that component to determine the relationship. Muscle tension, sinus issues, cervical disc problems may all contribute to the symptoms. Occipital neuralgia, radiating pain across the back of the head from the neck is often a problem. Must get the neck looked at and review options. ...Read more

Acute sinusitis?: All in all, your symptoms sound like they could be caused by a sinus infection. These tend to be bacterial in origin and tend to not resolve easily without antibiotics. You may need to see a doctor locally to see if you'd need an antibiotic for this. ...Read more

I have tension headaches almost every day. Advil/tylenol doesn't always help. What can I do to get rid of them?

I have tension headaches almost every day. Advil/tylenol doesn't always help. What can I do to get rid of them?

Tension Headache?: I believe that your question mush first be answered with a question. Was it a physician who diagnosed your headaches as tension headaches? If the answer is yes, there may be choices of additional meds that can be added to the AdvilTylenol.However it should be the diagnosing physician who should add additional meds. If you made the diagnosis of "tension" headache" consider consulting a neurologist ...Read more

I : I can't imagine the transfusion you had 5 days ago can be causing your headache now, but i'd be more concerned about why you needed the transfusion in the first place, and see if that is somehow related to your headache. Also, at the risk of sounding stupid, if you're a coffee drinker and missed your morning dose, caffeine withdrawal headaches are the worst! feel better. ...Read more

How many times a day or week is it ok to masturbate? Does it get rid of headaches?

How many times a day or week  is it ok to masturbate? Does it get rid of headaches?

Masturbation/headach: Headaches - if it is a habitual headache, try Acetaminophen or ibuprofen, cool compress to the head. If chronic or worsening, see doc. Masturbation - that's a debatable question. I would not recommend it to anyone. There's no definition of excessive masturbation as far as the # of times in an individual, but excessive masturbation can be a problem. ...Read more

I suffer hyper acidity once a week. Due to that I womit and get accute headache at left side near eyebrows for whole day. I want to get rid of it.

Migraine ? : This sounds like either a tension headache or if it lasts a whole day, possibly some type of migraine. The treatment of the two types of headache are different, so I would see a doctor first and try to decide which treatment is best. I suspect the migraine therapy would be best as a first approach ...Read more

I've had a headache that has become worse through the day and now feels like its turning into a migrane. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it?

I've had a headache that has become worse through the day and now feels like its turning into a migrane. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it?

Maybe: Headaches that you go to bed with and awaken with and worsen during day may indicate cervicogenic headaches from the neck, stress , or muscle contraction headache. Migraines are less likely with out history but one headache can lead to another. Suggest as with any headache you need to be evaluated to determine the cause so propper treatment can be done. Don't let it continue. ...Read more
