    Thanks! [:D]

    It's better now, it's just in the background and I hope it stays there.

    I don't think it's from the weather, it just comes when it wants and goes when it wants as well. [face_plain]

    Ugh! I have the worst nagging headache.:mad: It's behind my eyes and having the light on is killing me.

    That's horrible! Especially since the computer sends out light as well as you need light to read or watch TV. :(

    Get better soon! [:D]

    :( [:D}

    I had a bad one last night. I'm sure it came from my sinuses since it rained a lot yesterday.

    [:D] Nat - I hope it's better today. I've been taking lots of allergy medicine because it's almost 80F in the day, then much cooler at night. I hate this time of year.[face_frustrated]

    I don't know much about allergies, but all I heard is that it's annoying. :(

    I hope you both feel better now as well! [:D]

    I hate that.

    Thanks [:D] It's still raining here, but my headache is pretty much gone.

    That's good. Being back in life again. [:D]

    May I ask you how often you have headaches? :)

    It varies, but a lot. Usually they're not bad and I can just have a cup of tea. Other times a nap will take care of it. I've been trying to not take meds for them because I take them a lot and I don't want to develope an immunity.

    At least you can get rid of them without medicine usually. But I guess those small headaches aren't the ones that are really annoying. :(

    I always wonder why they can't find a good working medicine for heavy headaches and Migraines. It would help so many people. :(

    I like Amerge. It knocks me out for several hours, but it does the trick. However, it's so strong that I can't take it more than twice a week.

    Maxalt works pretty well for me. But it tends to make me feel dizzy, so I don't like to take it unless I can go straight to bed. Unfortunately, I get sinus headaches from changing weather and then that will sometimes trigger a migraine. And then there's the monthly migraine as well.:rolleyes:

    :( [:D] I get weather-change headaches too (thus mine over the last couple weeks). I've never heard of Maxalt, though.

    It's similar to Imitrex (which is imitriptan, I think). Maxalt is rizatriptan. It melts on your tongue, so it gets into your system faster. They've given it a minty taste, but it does have a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

    But when you feel like you want to cut your head off, taste really doesn't matter.

    I can handle the taste better then pulling my brain out through my nose with a coat hanger. And that's want I want to do most of the time, hoping it would stop the pain???? I don't do it because I know it wouldn't help.

    Don't think I've tried Amerge, need to look into that. I'm out of my meds, can't find a Dr in my new insurance plan that is any good. So I'm hoping someone will refill my old perscripts :(

    Yesterday was bad, today not as bad, but when Aunt Flo comes along as well..... It just makes things worse.

    Hope your all feeling better. I don't know much about allergies either (thank the maker) but know they can be teh suck too.

    Have a great day everyone [:D]

    Ah, I've had Imitrex. It doesn't work for me :(

    [:D] I hope you can find one! Amerge is really good and really strong, but it can knock you out for hours.

    Imitrex works really well for me, I just don't take it unless I'm really miserable.:p

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    I've found it.

    The Thread.

    :p

    I have migranes every day, all the time, when I wake up, when I go to bed, when I read in a dark room, when I read in a well-lit room. I have one right now, and I'll have one tomorrow. Migranes dictate my existance. I am their slave. They are my master. We are forever bound by eternal chains of pain and suffering.

    I've had a nasty headache coming on since yesterday. :_| Nothing is making it better either.

    I finally shook it off for about 24 hours and the damn thing hit me again this morning. It's from stress, I know that much, and nothing is completely calming it down.:_|

    Oh no!! [:D] Have you tried taking fifteen or so minutes and sitting down and just breathing and trying to relax? Probably won't help the migraine, but if you feel a stress headche starting to build, that might help [:D] :(

    QGR, wow!! Have you seen a neurologist or anything?
