This is a mug of comfort, and that’s exactly what I need right now. Something has been going on with me lately that is very unpleasant, it started when I was in Boston and it’s been getting progressively worse with each day that goes by. They are headaches but the word “headache” doesn’t come close to describing how horrific they are. It starts when I get up out of bed in the morning, beginning with a feeling of extreme pressure in the front of my head that turns into throbbing, extreme pain. It gets so intense that I can do nothing but lay in bed because with each movement I make, every time I stand up straight or perform any task, I get jolts of crippling pain all throughout my head. Every noise, every little bit of light, every time I move my head or TOUCH anything, I’m hit with pain that hurts so bad it causes me to scream, it got so bad at one point that I was lying in my bed crying and I felt like my skull was simultaneously on fire and about to explode. I’m sorry to whine, it’s just that this is really worrying me. I looked up my symptoms and I’m not finding anything, does anybody have any insight that they could give me?

Good Lord get to the doctor! Could be migraines could be some kind of aneurism! I would not wait around on this sort of thing. I do NOT mean to scare the bejeesus out of you but really put it off.

My mom scheduled an appointment for me today.

Sounds like a splitting migraine. You do need to see a doctor though. I’m going to PM you and ask a couple questions and you know why!

Kyle, based on what you are describing, you should go see a doctor… there are severe migraines that can give you similar symptoms, and if it’s that bad, please seek professional help, hope you feel better soon…

I will go see a doctor asap guys, thanks for the concern. Also, when this first started (while I was in Boston) I was also sleepwalking a couple of times which I’ve NEVER done in my life.

@Bonnie, okay.

One of the things that does help migraines is coffee (not tea folks) drink some coffee, even several cups. Really. I know this from my Neurologists and experience.

I actually tried that because I had heard that caffeine helped migraines, but I feel like it actually made it worse. I’ve also been taking tylenol AND ibuprofen and neither seem to do anything, I just usually have to wait for it to go away which takes 2-3 hours.

Sounds more like a cluster headache, could even be related to frequent use of a computer or tablet device believe it or not. They are HORRIBLE. Get to a doctor, and see if physical therapy and/or massage may help!

Is it “okay” to take both Ibuprofen and Tylenol? I know there are two type of headache medicine you are NOT supposed to take together but now I don’t know which two.

Scatterbrain

Tylenol and ibuprofen are fine to mix, I think most NSAIDS in general are okay…you’re probably thinking of narcotic painkillers which really shouldn’t be mixed.

Azzrian

Here is what I found with Google – not that google makes anyone a genius lol:
You can alternate the tylenol with the ibuprofen but not mix the ibuprofen/aspirin/aleve. They are all NSAIDS and you shouldn’t take them at the same time.

Bonnie

That’s right!

I’m no herbalist and it sounds like a problem that might need more medical insight, but the Chinese tout White Chrysanthmums as being good treatments for migrianes, headache, alergies, and in the traditional medicinal cannon…to expel ‘wind’ from the body. If you are having a hard time finding them let me know…and I will send you some

Scatterbrain

I’ll have to try that, they sell Chrysanthemums in bulk at a store near me.

Kashyap

make sure they are white….yellow are not the quality ones you want to use for those symptoms

Bio

My name is Kyle. I love good tea, a good book, the great outdoors, and I am passionate about music. I also find enjoyment in writing and mountain biking here in beautiful Central Oregon.

Tea is a hugely misunderstood and under-appreciated gift in the western world, and my hope is to spread the gift of quality tea. It is communion between the passion of man and the raw beauty of nature. It is art, and it is therapy. I hope you enjoy my writings.
