Dear niall,

I'm sorry for your headaches. Start a journal and list activities, foods, time of day or night, (weather patterns), and sleep patterns and see if there is anything that makes the pain worse.

You need to talk to your doctor and ask if a scan is needed to see if there are any tumors pressing against any nerves that maybe the reason for the headaches. Then ask the doctor about medication to help you with your pain.

Good luck

Hi niall,

Welcome to MDJunction. You have picked an amazing site. There are a lot of people who share a lot of problems. Maybe we don't have all the correct answers but we can give the best advice. The very best you can do for yourself is talk to your doctor about your problems, maybe he or she can come up with a solution to help you with those headaches.

Getting headaches that often does not sound right. Start a journal and keep a record of the time, and activity and see if there is a pattern. Good luck,

Coco
