Everyday I wake with a headache and proceed the whole day with a major headache. I have taken norco and it really helps as does vicodin 7.5 with ibuprofin. They are the only way to get through the day. I live a very healthy life style and have been told these headaches are genetic and caused by hormones.
I had the same exact problem. I took norcos and vicoden just to stop the headaches I'd wake up with one and it would get worse throughout the day so I kept taking them. What's happing is something called rebound headaches. Look it up. The more u take the tylonal ibuprofen and hydrocodone the worse the headaches get. The only way to stop getting them is to stay off the pain killers even when u have one so ur body can start making its own painkiller chemicals . Everything your taking causes dehydration which is the major cause of headaches. You have to drink tons of water and stay away from the drugs they will be painful but over time they'll go away. If its stress or tension headaches try a benzodiazepine or valerian root it will calm your whole body down. It's hard to get off norcos I know... check out my post on weaning off norcos . Hope this helps I know how it feels to have a terrible migrane for days straight.
