Headaches with almost a heartbeat in my head, what's the best way to lessen it?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've tried Tylenol, ibprophen, aspirin pretty much anything over the counter I could find with no luck, the excedrin migraine used to help a lot but now not as much. Hoping someone out there has a remedy that works. Thanks

    33cody - while medication can really help you manage it in the short term on an SOS bais I would suggest trying some yoga and meditation. You can start with some Isha Kriya which is availbale on youtube for free. Consult your gp if possible.

    If you are stressed medications over the counter may not help.

    Relaxation Techniques may help, Mindfullness comes to mind and there are books that you can get on Amazon.

    Some AD medications you get from your GP could help your relax.

    Talk to your GP.

      So this is a common symptom though it just started and I'm over 7 weeks in? I figured it would've been there during the most stressful times like in the very beginning. I feel like I'm so close to getting over the hump but this has just started 4days ago and the foggy dizzy feeling has been constantant and now either don't seem to wanna stop. This is all started because this feelin of dizziness or fogginess and pressure in the back of my head and i went full panic after that now I got over the panic part but these symptoms will not go anywhere, I feel like the last cpl days I've been posting a lot but I just wanna convince myself anxiety is all it is and that it will get better just need to be more patient and better that's not really a strong suit of mine.

      It was also suggested that I should get tested for lupus and possibly silent migraine because I also have joint pain and some other symptoms that coincide that match anxiety lupus and the silent migraine

      I would say it is all side effects. I was in emergency Friday, because of my upset stomach, light period and acid reflux. All the tests came back good. Side effects. Although where I am not anxious, just feel ill, that is why I believe my dose is too high. I will see Thursday. It will be tolerable if I can get my Nexium refilled and something to help sleep for the time being. 4 hours some nights isn't enough.

      With how mild my anxiety is and only wanting something to help in school, I would consider my dose too high. I slept like a baby beforehand and had a fullblown appetite. Off and on for 8 weeks I would good horrible sleep to good sleep. Sure 4 hours is better than nothing, but not when you are used to 8 hours tops. See what he said Thursday, because it isn't really effecting my life, I just hate the fact I can't sleep. However, hopefully an increase is all you needed!

      Anxiety causes stress, like headaches, this is not unusual.

      You could try an antiinflamatory medicatin like Nurophen that will reduce the swelling that is causing a headache, although if it is stress this pathway may not work and yu are best to talk to your GP. He will suggest a medicatin that can calm the Anxiety.

      Sometimes Asprin an reduce headahes, it you take them for extended periods they can cause bleeding inside the tummy and they an also show as bruising on arms. This bruises are faint and yellowing and are more painful than a standard bruise. 

      The reasons I suggest your GP he knows your medical history and will script accordingly. If a headache is persistant it needs to be looked into and that should put your mind at ease.
