Ugh...I'm back. I know that perimenopause can cause (or exacerbate) headaches, but I'm on day five of a pretty bad round...the pain seems primarily located in my jaw/temple area, with a band across my forehead....my neck and shoulders feel tense and sore as well...of course, I'm convinced that I've got a brain tumour or am about to have a stroke, but I seem to recall reading that someone (maybe anxiousface) wrote in with a similar complaint about persisent and pretty severe headache....I suspect I'm unconciously clenching my jaw which may be the underlying cause, but I'm still worried....I'm also exhaused as I've not been sleeping well for the last week or so....and my period (if I get one this month) is due to begin any day now....I Googled my symptoms (I know...bad idea!) and now I'm terrified..anyone have any words of wisdom?
