In addition to my ankle, I also get piercing headaches when it gets really hot...like today. I know they are heat headaches, I just don't know what to do about them, except take some pain reliever.

Yeah, I'm more of a fall/winter kinda guy myself. I get those stupid heat headaches, too. I usually keep it very cool in the house, cuz if I get hot enough to sweat, I'll get the headache.

Hell, maybe it's a brain tumor, I dunno. Wouldn't surprise me with all the other crap I've got. :/

You know what's weird though? three extra strength Tylenol (acetaminophen, but I probably didn't even need to clarify) hardly made a dent in my headache. I used to get migranes about five/six years ago, I was on Imitrex for a little while.....but then they went away. I'm wondering if this is a migrane though....don't think so, cause the light isn't bothering my head. Next time i can take painreliever, i'm gonna switch off to my naproxen.....if it numbs my ankle, maybe it'll take the headache away.
