|Image via Google but by no means illustrates all headaches.|
Mine are usually in the back of the skull near the base.
Now, it seems that my old friend Ibuprophen is only about 50% effective. I haven't asked my physician friends if there is a level at which a person can develop a tolerance to it but perhaps I've reached it. Otherwise, either my headaches are getting worse or their root cause is changing. I've taken 800-1000mg dosages up to three times in one 24 hour period and had it not take the pain away. It used to work after one dose.
Hence the reason for this post. I'll be experimenting with new methods of migraine control and posting it here as well as on my Medicine tab. I've begun asked my Emergency Room nurses for their opinions on Imitrex and similar drugs. As soon as I get some, I'll post the effects.
What do YOU use for headaches/migraines?
