The headache that won't go away!

For the past few days I have had this headache that will NOT QUIT!!!!

I don't know why I have had it and I have been popping Motrin every 5 hours (3-200mgs) and it lessens it but doesn't make it go away.  Sleep doesn't help, eating doesn't help, relaxing doesn't help.  And since I don't have health insurance right now I can't go see a doctor until MASS Health kicks in and I am covered.  And since I am coughing it doesn't help the whole headache thing either.

I've also been SUPER tired lately.  I am asleep by midnight every night (give or take 30 minutes).  I wake up around 6:30 when P gets up and then go back to sleep when they leave around 7.  Usually I will sleep until 9, 10, 11 and sometimes noon.  Today I slept till 12:30, got up did treatments, exercised, felt nauseous so I went back to bed at 1:30 and slept till 4.  I will be able to fall asleep tonight again because I am so tired.  I don't know why this is either.  And before the whole "maybe you are pregnant" thing starts (I mentioned my increased appetite on FB and someone commented about it) I just got finished my period today (sorry guys!!) so that is NOT what this is.

I just want this all to change and go back to normal so I can resume my schedule.  I feel like I am slacking on housework and cooking.  Though in reality I am not haha.


  1. Sinus infection? Hope you feel better soon girlie!

  2. Check your blood pressure. If you don't have a BP machine, go to any pharmacy and use one of those sit-down machines they usually have. If it's over 150-170, hie thee to a hospital regardless of insurance.

  3. I'm thinking it is a sinus infection. I have started my nasal rinses twice a day so hopefully that helps a bit. :)

  4. I've been getting migraines daily for 2 weeks now. :( I have an appt. with the ENT tomorrow. I don't think it's a sinus infection but I could be wrong. I feel your frustration and pain. Here's hoping we both feel better soon!
