Recurring headache

I have had recurring headaches in the back of my head for about 2 months now. More recently i have started to have a headache on the upper right side of my forehead. I've been taking 800mg of ibuprofen at a time, sometimes twice a day, and i don't feel comfortable doing so. I've cut down on the amount of caffeine i drink and don't know where to go from here. Is there anything i can do to end these headaches?

Hi,

The maximum dose of  brufen is 1.2 g/day. If taking under physician recommendation it is 3.2g/day. It should not be taken continuously for more than 10 days unless advised by the doctor.
Do you have any other symptoms apart from headache?
A high blood pressure, low blood sugar levels, dehydration, sinusitis are some of the common causes apart from stress and tension.
I would advise you to eat regularly, sleep for 8 hrs in the night, maintain your fluid intake and cut down on your daily stress and see if it helps. At the same time please schedule an appointment with your physician as chronic recurring headache calls for a complete clinical examination.

Hey,

Thanks for such a speedy response! No other symptoms really, sometimes i get lightheaded if i move too quickly, but nothing too major. Everything seems to be fine, except for those darn headaches! What could the headaches be a sign of?

  An  ice pack applied to the point of where the pain originates can be a gift from God.  You need to constrict those expanded blood vessels.

    Never take deep breathing for granted...it is key to relaxation and pain control. Over and over, slowly breathe in through your nose and even slower out through your nose. Try to make your exhaling last twice as long as when you inhaled...longer even. Count silently to yourself and do not berate yourself when you make a mistake, juist try to do better with the nest breaths. Keep it up. Even when you tire of it. It is so important. keep researching. Keep searching... from within especially.

  You may need to see an M.D. You are definitely taking too much ibuprofen too often & could cause yourself some serious stomach problems. Google headaches. The causes are infinite. So are the treatments. Keep the faith. Time is on your side.

Sounds like rebound headaches from the Caffeine in the Ibebrophen, add that to a cofee or two if you drink it and some choc if you eat it and a few sodas,Rebound , cut the med down and some caffeine out they will go.

Hi,

Headaches can be physiological response to excessive stress and anxiety. Such type of headaches are known as tension headaches.
Headaches can also be triggered by low blood sugar, high blood pressure, anemia, and dehydration, poor eyesight.
Migraine headache are vascular headaches due to brain dysfunction and have a genetic basis as well.
Sometimes headaches indicate a serious illness like brain tumor or even stroke.
A continuous headache not relieved by OTC pain medications should not be left alone.
A thorough clinical examination is mandatory in these cases.

Thank you for all your help, i sincerely appreciate it. I'm going to give everything a try and i'll post a new statement with my results after my  little "experiment". I was headache-less for about two days, but this afternoon it came back- I took three 200 mg ibuprofen and have been at a temporary peace since....here goes nothing!

Do this breathing and the headache will disappear gradually.Drink warm water.Post updates until the headaches have disapeared.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute.
Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for upto 15 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day) Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Anulom Vilom -  Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30  minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep breaths into the lungs.

Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
