I have been grinding my teeth now for two years also due to this have suffered constantly with cronic tention headaches. Both these I'm sure were sparked off from a break down I had two years ago. I'm taking Sertraline for depression and also amptripline for the constant headaches.The headaches most days on a scale of 1 to 10 are usually around the 7 to 10 mark. I wear a mouth guard every night. I am at my wits end
Hiya Sarah. I could have written your comment myself only I have been suffering for 4 years since my sister emigrated. Amitriptiline had no affect on me even after taking 50mg doses. I went back to my docs this week and he told me he couldn't do anything else to help me and to go for a walk in the park or do a dance class to relax! I have tried everything.Even paid out £500 for a chiropractor but with no luck.I am still searching for a cure for my headaches. It has a massive affect on my family and I hate that. It's very hard for people to realise how disabling this type of headache can be for the sufferer.I am at my wits end too. I can't imagine living the rest of my life with this. I hope you find relief soon.
hi i suffer from quite a lot of headaches at the moment and i am on amitripilin and also migraleve and also a nasal spray called sumatripan i think. i was taken into hospital last september they figured it out was to do with the nerves at the back of my eye as the pressure was so high and they where swollen because the hole where the nerves go through is very tight. they also wanted to try a lumbar puncture to see whether or not there was pressure in my brain as this could be the case as your doctor to refer you to a nurologist and to get a puncture if poss as could help
I was diagnosed with A pituatuary macroadenoma in Febuary, severe headaches was my main symtom. The encrinoligist said hormone levels were borderline so just wait and see, since then im taking extreme hot flushes, constantly tired and cant cope with the headaches, consultant didnt test blood again and said he wasnt sure these symtoms are caused by the tumour maybe my age (im 42)so just wait for another 4months and see what happens. I just want my life back what can i do?
I am having problems with my nose. It always feels like its blocked (like I've got a cold) but I never get any other symptoms, I keep getting headaches around my sinus areas and am always coughing/hocking up flem - Yuck! I have never really noticed it until a few years ago and noticed I've been doing it for years. In the last few months the headaches are getting so bad I don't like to drive. My doctor has prescribe me a nasal spray and says its chronic sinusitis but I don't think it is, I think it could be a deviated septum (I broke my nose when I was 9/10) - Can anyone help?
hi i suffered a maxilla break 15 years ago and have since had sinusitis on a pretty much consitant basis i take 4-6 dose of antibiotics per year, it lasts for upto 10 weeks non stop, ive seen ent specialists and they have discovered that my septum has a deviation which doent allow the sinus to drain correctly. The headaches and pain behind the eyeys cheek none up to my ears and head are somtimes bearable but other times just make you want to butt a wall and knock yourself out. i have had several chest infection as a result and its just a night mare. The steroid sprays are only a tmp relief cos they will make it worse in the end, anti histamines dnt work, head over a boiling hot water filled with vicks or olbas oil sometimes works, anti infam drugs work to an extent, but so far im sorry to say you just got to put up wth it, believe me ive tried everything that i can get, and all th advice and docs have a different opinion, Best advice is keep blowing that nose, nt to hard, and keep away from anything than can irritate the sinus. no matter how off putting get up and clear all that yuk yellow green brown gunk from the back of the throat and nostrile. It may sound strange but cold conditions seem to suit better cos my nose then runs like a tap!!
Hi, I suffer very similar effects to yourself. Ive been getting headaches for years but recently they have been becoming a lot more frequent and persistent. Currently ive had a headache of sorts every day for the past 6 weeks. In this time I have been to my GP 4 times and still no referral to a nose ear + throat specialist. I have been prescribed 2 different nasal sprays, 2 types of anti histamine and anti biotics and although my nasal passge is abit clearer when using the headache persist. The GP had a look up my nose and noted my nasal passage was very narrow and that swelling was present and advised me that I was probably allergic to something. I would describe the pain on a good day similar to having a head cold around the bridge of my nose and on a bad day like somebody is screwing a nail into the bridge of my nose. Unfortunately I have not responded to any of the treatment as of yet and will continue to go to the GP until I am referred. This condition is severely affecting my life at the moment and cant believe that these long term headaches are normal.
Hello im 16 and suffer really bad from my periods and have done since i started 2 years ago, i get 3 a month or just one that lasts for 8 days but i am in constant pain with from my stomach, suffer with constant headaches and feeling sick ive already been on medication and still on it from my headaches so i cant go on the contreceptive pill, really dont mnow whats wrong, doesnt help that im allergic to the femix and neurofen period pain tablets either!
Please talk to your mum about going to see a gynae. GP's tend to just say things are womens troubles, but you are suffering too much not to try and find out why. You could have cysts, polyps or even something like endometriosis to think of a few reasons. Best of luck.
I'm 31 a big build and have high blood pressure. I snore really loudly and hold my breath which as been observed by my partner. But what I'm worried about is that in that morning I wake up with headaches ,feeling really tired and my eye sight becomes disorientated all day. I've been to see a neurologist about the headaches and been prescibed topriamate which do work and I've been to the sleep clinic about the possibility of having sleep apnea. Which the clinic said I may have depending on the the oximeter readings. I'm more worried about the constant tiredness and eye disorientation. Are these symptoms connected to sleep apnea?
I can not really answer this, However, my partner also suffers high blood pressure and also complains of eye sight problems (seeing spots?) he is forever rubbing his eyes. He also suffers head aches and is always tired. However he doesn't snore or seem to suffer sleep apnea. Don't know if that is coincidence or if it has more to do with the blood pressure? And unsure if you are the same but my partner also has anger problems (which thankfully over the past few years I've been helping him to control better). I use quite a lot of garlic in my cooking as it is said to thin the blood, so it seems to help keep his blood pressure down. Maybe this would help you. If you happen upon an answer it would be a great help.
I became really ill, 10 months ago, and started to feel sick constantly and have really bad headaches. Then a few weeks later my glands started to swell. So I have been felling like this (feeling sick, having headaches and had swollen glands) for 10 months now. My doctor has just left it now as I have been tested a lot of times for many different things, refered to hospital and am on tablets to improve my head. However I became really ill again last friday and woke up the next morning to have two new bigger swollen glands and a swollen face. Any suggestions of what it could be, or to improve my symptoms.
I'm 24, I first started my periods at 13 they were always heavy,painful and were accompanied by bad headaches. After about 3 years of this my periods became very irregular and more heavy/painful. I did go to a gynocologist in my late teens who said just go on the pill. As I have a heart condition my options are limited with the pill but I have been on micronor for about 3 years now. While it did not regulate my periods it did make them a little better but they were still very irregular. However since about December they have been very heavy again (I used a tampon and pad and need to change them every 2hours or so or I leak. I am bleeding more than I'm not, I currently bleed for about 5-7 days and get 4-7 days break. I also am in alot of pain, headaches and cramps so much that I really feel I cannot go to work- being anything other than curled up has me nearly in tears. I am also very depressed just before I get one. Is anyone else experiencing this type og thing?
