headache

anyone know what the guiness world record is for extended, unremitting headache?

I'm sure i don't have a shot for it, but this one's been going strong (and I mean fucking STRONG) since sunday midday, at least. Maybe even saturday; I wasn't paying much attention at the beginning because I was sure it was going to go away.

Yes, I've slept in the meantime. Couldn't tell you if it's there in my dreams. But it's certainly there when I wake up.

Dear lord...go to the doctor!!! I imagine that a three headache may be a problem (extreme understatement). Sometimes a headache can be a symptom of a larger problem...just a lil' doom and gloom for you! But, truly, I'm pretty concerned for you, go to the damn doctor (as my mom would say)!

I keep picturing a little potato sprouting out of my head. Not exactly pleasant. :)

Took some ibuprofen the first night, and that may have made it worse (or it may have just been coming into its own at that point in time). Went to sleep to get away from the pain.

Just took some sudafed(alike) and... it's interesting. I can feel the headache, but even more I can feel the speed-like symptoms of the sudafed. It usually doesn't hit like this. Very strange. The headache is there, but I don't... care? It doesn't bother me, steal my concentration... or if it does, I have more than enough concentration to spare all fo the sudden. Or something. I'm typing this too fast.

:whee:

If this is something obscure that a doctor would be needed for... that would be awkward. I have no insurance, nor anything approximating endless funds. :/ Though I do have some sort of access to a nurse-type-person. If her email has stopped bouncing, maybe I can ask her for an opinion. And hopefully she won't just say (which I expect she would :/) exactly what you just did.

la la la. :/

la.

What about the Berkeley free clinic?

Thanks. :)

The nap I took tonight may have cleared it up, though I still feel like I'm on the sudafed (five hours later) in a buzzing, hazy way... and there's still an ache in my head, but it's far less than any previous. So either the sudafed is working, finally, or the headache is fading, finally. Or it's just being chaotic. :/

:grin: yes, indeed. tempting, but... I'll pass. ;)

Actually, day 4 seems to see it cleared. Here's hoping it keeps that way. Funnily enough, it may have been math (chaos theory) that did it. (stress caused and cured?)
