I hate this.

It's been a week, and it's not getting better. I mean, the headache recedes and comes back but never goes away, and right now my vision is starting to blur, and I already took Maxalt today. Which takes care of the nausea but not the headaches so much.

This does calm down, right? I mean, once I get used to the whole thing, it calms down?

This has never happened before. In all the times I've had "food poisoning" or whatever, I was *fine* two days later.

And I'm waiting for a call back from my doctor.


We've already talked about this a bit on IM. But these headaches started really suddenly and with great frequency. It sounds like the Maxalt really isn't the solution. But really, keep that headache diary! It's a great help to your doctor.

And really. If you need anything, call.

They did not start suddenly. I've been having them at fairly infrequent intervals for years - I think since I was a kid. At least, I have strong memories of a couple of nights when I woke up with bad headaches and nausea in which vomiting made it all better. And I've returned to these memories each time I had something like this happen. They're why I'd been certain it was a stomach thing.

It's that I had two such in about ten days as opposed to several weeks that I got concerned enough to speak to my doctor.
