    Hi Numb Sorry to hear this, it is not nice and I can speak from experience. Firstly what medication have you been prescribed  for the headaches? My neurologist blamed codeine and paracetamol albeit only taken in small doses.

    10 days after stopping the codeine the headac hes cleared up after daily severe headaches for 6 months.
