Does anyone have suggestions for getting rid of a persistent headache? It started Saturday. I've tried Advil, Tylenol, Excedrin Migraine and Excedrin Tension. I can take the edge off but not make it go away. I know why I have it and I'm fine. It will last another day or two unless I can find something that works. I have a chiropractor appointment but it's not in the next few days.

Do you need to be functional at the same time?

If not, two Darvocet followed by two stiff drinks, repeated after one hour will give you some relief. Just make sure that someone hides the car keys. May cause lapses of awareness and memory.

Warning: I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV. YMMV. Disregard if you have bad reactions to alcohol or Darvon. Not to be taken seriously. (I did this once when I had back trouble, I have no idea how I got to work and no recollection whatsoever of what happened during the two hours it took to travel what usually took 1/2 hour, and I was absolutely useless for at least 5 hours after I became aware that I had actually, somehow, got to work.)


On a serious note, it sounds as though you might need some prescription medication.

I can pass on functional for the rest of the week but darn, no Darvocet. I do have Crown Royal but research has proven CR gives me headaches. Seriously though, I think I'll try that tonight. Thanks.

Once on a work trip to Long Island, my associate and I decided to go out to the Fire Island beaches. And _yes_ we knew what the deal was - everybody was nekkid. My bud chickened out and took the next ferry back, but I decided to get some sun as I was young and thin and good lookin' back then. Happened to be sitting near a group of young women and over heard one of them as she watched a young couple emerging from the ocean. She said "Man... the water must be really cold today"

The scary part is that it's true, and that I have no recollection of two hours behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.

Some random ideas.....
Could it be caused by a hormone surge, perhaps?? Or perhaps you have a gum infection or sinus infection that is causing it.
At any rate, perhaps see a medical doctor.

Best of luck to you- I know how debilitating a severe headache can be...

Perhaps a different ( age related) hormone surge
though I must admit I have NO idea how old dear mainewriter is and certainly do not wish to imply anything or embarrass her. Please forgive me any embarrassment in advance.
