Even though I took the OTC pain meds, I am still getting the headaches. They occur mainly in the AM and when I lie down and go from lying down to sitting up. I am starting to doubt whether the medicine is really working. I still don't have much of an appetite, although I ate once today. I've been getting somewhat lightheaded and saw "stars" after using the bathroom, despite not straining at all. I have seen them in years past, however it was only when I strained hard. Moods are pretty stable right now.
