If you have a regular doctor who can see you today I would call and go there right away. This can be a serious problem or it may be something minor, better to err on the side of caution. ...Read more

I've had a headache for two days straight and have taken pain killers but the headache remains, could it be from the weather?

I've had a headache for two days straight and have taken pain killers but the headache remains, could it be from the weather?

Possibly: Have you reacted to weather in your past? If so - sure! If not, still perhaps if there have been unusual conditions or if you are changing in some way. Don't overuse the pin killers if they aren't working. Try environmental impacts - change heat level, dryness level, drink water, sinus drainage efforts - positional, steam, etc. Neck massage may help. Call doctor if it goes into week. ...Read more

Depends: If your headache does not go away with tylenol (acetaminophen) (no ibuprofen if you have nausea,vomiting, abdominal pain, or don't eat with it), consider going to an UC or seeing your doc. If the headache is severe and you have never had one like it before, go to the ER by all means, or if you have numbness, tingling, weakness, or other abnormal symptoms. it may just be a virus and tylenol (acetaminophen) will help. ...Read more
