I hate feeling like this!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ugh I have been feeling crappy since last night but it just got worse over the past few hours.
I went to bed last night feeling a little icky just kind of off ya know? This morning at work I was getting a bad headache but the dogs were being barky so I figured it was that.
Came home and took a nap hoping to feel better, I was feeling a little light headed at that point.
But now I have an extremely bad headache! it hurts to touch my head! One eye will not focus correctly and I keep getting really dizzy while looking at the computer. It hurts to have my eyes open or closed... how is that possible?
Any clues what it could be? I took some midol headache to see if that would help... nothing yet and that was about an hour ago...
Stressing over the fact my boyfriend may be going to Europe and China for a month isnt helping much

Aww i'm so sorry you're feeling bad I hope you feel better soon
Just take another nap, if it's a migraine the lights will only make it worse, I get migraines and the meds they give me really knock me out so if I don't want to take them I just go into a quiet dark room and lay down without moving at all and ! It sounds like it really might be a migraine if you are also feeling dizzy and light headed.

Sounds like a migraine to me.....Symptoms include light and noise sensitivity, persistent increasing head pressure and pain, stomach nausea and vomiting, and can last for several hours to days. Basically they suck! Triggers are stress, as well as diet ( including nicotine, alcohol, drugs, sugar, caffeine).....

This morning I was thinking it was lack of caffeine. I am a horrible caffeine addict but i have been trying to cut out a lot of it to help lose some weight and just be healthier. I have been drinking Sobe Life water all day today and yesterday with just 1 soda each day. Yesterday I had a coke first thing in the morning and then life water the rest of the night along with about half a bottle of beer that evening. And today I had a coke from wendys with lunch (which I still have some left...) hoping it would help the headache.
But I do believe I may be addicted to Life Water now lol!
Ugh I dont want to have a migrane! They do run in my family though... crap I thought I got out of that.

Sounds like a Migraine.
I have had so many of those in the last few days.
I hope you feel better.
Try Advil Migraine.

Have you ever had a headache this bad/a migraine before? If you haven't, hopefully this will be a one time deal from the lack caff. and not genetics.. I was used to massive amounts of caffeine for a long time, but never experienced any notable withdrawals from it.

Oh my God. I sound like an addict. TCS can wait.. so don't go torturing yourself! Get your eyes off the bright screen! Hoping your body learns quickly how to cope without all that caffine so you can feel better soon!!

If the Sobe Life water is the new thing you've recently added to your diet, and you admitted to drinking it all day, it might even contain something that is a trigger for you.

On the other hand, it seems like everyone is getting sick lately so maybe you caught something? Flu, and for some colds, does cause a bad headache.

When was the last time you had your eyes examined? It could be eye-strain. I used to get some really awful headaches due to my eye-strain.

Never had a headache this bad at least not in many years and that was before I went on the pill and they would happen everytime I had my period. I will totally try Advil Migraine tomorrow... hopefully it will help!

I'm a slow drinker. I drank an entire bottle from around 2PM - 10PM.. And yes this is normal for me. I can get a 32Oz Tea and it will last me over 12 hours... Bottle of soda yea thats around 8 hours. LOL! If I eat I will drink a little more but not a lot.

I had my eyes tested last May and have glasses but they are barely over reading glasses. In fact she told me I didnt need them all the time just when I felt like I was straining. And yes they are on now.

You can also try excedrin it's the only OTC headache medicine that actually helps me.
