This is the 4th or 5th time in the last year this has happened. Yesterday, I woke up with a bad headache on my forehead. I forced myself into the shower hoping that would help. I felt worse. I fixed some hot chocolate for the caffeine and drank a cup. My head kept getting worse. I couldn't get comfortable and ended up vomiting. My head was throbbing. After I vomited I was able to sleep for a very long time. I feel 'hungover' today but it's getting better as the day goes on. Do you think this was a migraine or some other type of headache? I have thrown up everytime this has happened. My head hurt so bad I cried.
Sounds like a migraine to me. That is pretty much how they go when I get them. Hot Chocolate doesnt have near enough caffeine to kick a migraine. Sometimes if I feel one coming on and I take ibuprofen and acetaminophen together that can offset one but not always. I find putting a heat pack on my neck and the base of my skull helps. Some people feel that ice to that area is better. Watch your diet and see if you can link up anything that triggers the headaches. Many times there is a food that sets them off. Sometimes it is just stress or hormones that can set them off. If it is a food trigger though, you can just not eat whatever is setting them off. Migraines are not fun. Talk to your Dr too. It might help you to have some medication around like Imitrex.
Hello Jenail. It might be migraines or something completely different, else, causing the pain. Stress, could be causing this. The nausea, vomiting tells me that. I've mentioned this in the past, for years I had pretty bad migraines.Felt as if my skull was going to split, the pain was as such. I still get them, but nothing compared to those days, and they're spaced apart, maybe two per year. Three tops. Just curious as to your medications, are you on anything new, or recently added, that can be a factor you know, a actual player to be the cause of your migraine(s). Caffeine as you know, helps. I drink a lot of coffee, and it works more often than not. My other thought might be... no question do you get the headaches, the same time of the day, you know, as in a pattern. If I can come up with a more defenite answer or suggestion, I'll add it below with a comment. Take care Jenail, try not to worry to much about it (easy for me to say since you put up a question about it) bye bye for now then,
