Does anyone else (stupid qusetion) wake up with headaches that seem to be neverending? I have had a headache for almost a week, now. I can get it to go away for maybe an hour, then it's back. My NO has me on Fioracet this time. It sort of works, just not for long. It upsets my stomach, as does the Diamox. I try not to take it for fear it will stop working, eventually.Is there something besides meds that relieve these headaches a little...or a lot? It is beginning to really frustrate me. I can't function, let alone take care of my husband and family as I did before my diasgnosis. I can't even think of pulling my hair back or up for it intensifies it terribly! I tried a hot bath and that just intensified it to the point I ended up being taken by ambulance to the ER, as I was at home alone. This illness is frustrating enough without all the symptoms. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
