Hello mam69. I had headaches for years. Long tale short I seldom get them at all anymore. Upon awakening, I take one 325mg aspirin, then throughout the day, I drink coffee. Lots of it. And it works as it has for so many other people as well. Coffee has been proven to practically eliminate headaches and migraines. Wishingt you good health and no more headaches,pledge

Wow, yah, I also have been getting an absolutely insane number of headaches. I did a bit of research and found out that almost all headaches are caused by inflammation. For migrane headaches, the grandios of them all turns out that if you take 2 tylenol, 2 ibuprofen, and 2 aspirin at the first occurrence of symptoms, the headache can be altogether avoided (would first talk to your doc before giving this a go). Basically you might only need a stronger or larger dose of an Ibuprofen type med.
Best of luck!

If you're having headaches every day, then you're probably taking some pain relief pill at least 3 times a week which can cause rebound headaches. What you really need is to get what is called a prophylactic medication which is taken every day to prevent the headaches. The more you take the aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc., the more it will perpetuate the headaches.
If your current doctor isn't smart enough to know, find another doctor. If the problem continues, you need to see a neurologist to get further tests.
If this was a sudden onset of headaches different than any that you have experienced before, see a doctor ASAP. It could mean that you have something far more severe that could do significant harm to you.
I know this from personal experience and any of the older answers from MD experts on this site said the exact same thing.
Get help and take care. Would be interested in a follow up answer or question from you to let me know how you are doing.
