I have been getting these "headaches" for about 12 years now. The triggers seem to be smells a lot of the time or if I drink alcohol at anytime. The smells that are the worst seem to be perfumes,hairsprays, cleaning products, ciggarett smoke, gas..anything very strong. The hpain is always on the right side of my head and at first and for many years me and many others thought they were sinus headaches. All sinus medications never worked ..ever. I read online the Migrains can seem like sinus headaches though. The thing is that I get them about once a week...they last about 12 to 16 hours at a time. My vison get blury and I jsut cant function. I have two kids and watch 2 other childrent hrough the week, so when one hits its hell on earth and next to impossible to get anything done. I use to smoke and the first time I quit the headaches quit..I started agian for a silly reson and the headaches came back (of course) and this time when I quit agian the headaches didnt.. its been about three months and I am still getting them. it is very frustrating. I have tried diet changes, glasses, allergy medicine.. seems like verything. I just now have health insurance and will be in to the doctor in a couple months..but I jsut wnatd to see if anyone else out there with suggestions of what kind of doctor to see, anything else i can try to prevent them.. any thing at all will help!!!! Sorry for the miss spells..I happen to have a head ache right now..

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
