Hi iv been on flu for abt 6 weeks now and i went thru all the sickness, cold and tired stage but the last few days iv started with the headaches and its driving me mad no matter what i take anadin etc its always there in the back of my head and never goes away properly. Has anyone else gone thru this at the same stage as me?

    Hi Nikki

    Hiya, just when i thought i'd got over the side effect stage i got to about week 5 and had awful headaches. No tablet would touch it, i had it for about 5 days then woke one morning and it had gone. I don't think you're supposed to take neurofen whilst on flu but i was getting so desperate that i did, i asked in the chemist first and they said i could but not often. Even that didn't touch it.

    Hope you're headache free soon.

    Hi Nikki

    Yep, me too. Am at 6 weeks and 3 days. In fact had (or should that be have) one today. Took Panadol but not to much effect. Have some co-codamol in reserve left over from when i had a kidney stone in October (never rains, it pours!) This is a most unwanted side effect.

    Find mine are at the front of my head usually around my temple, a very weird place to have a headache. I know nurofen is not a good idea.

    Hopefully this faze will pass. Glad its not only me. :?

    Hi Nikki. Mine is still lurking. Not bothering me too much at the moment. I used to have loads of sinus migraines that lasted up to 4 days with the nausious after effects. Since taking flu, have not had 1. So i suppose this is better than them, just.

    Keep well(ish)
