What types of headaches are you prone to?

Peggi Peggi
I am currently on day 4 of an intense migraine, though it has temporarily died down, so I am just curious about who gets headaches as well! So, what type do you tend to get?

Sorry about your migraine, hope it'll be gone soon! I only suffer from slight hormonal ones around that stupid time of the month, and an Advil will take care of it.

Migraines are the worst! Go to the ER if it doesn't get better. They have lovely shots that knock them right out, though sometimes they'll come back when the shot wears off. Hope you feel better soon!

I just found out the recent ones I was having was due to back issues I was having. So now I am in therapy for my back and they have gone for now.

I'm fortunate that I usually never get headaches. Just hangover ones.

I get headaches from consuming too much sugar and salt. And sometimes, I get headaches from orgasming.

So... I don't eat a lot of sugar and salt and I don't get headaches!!! My orgasm headaches only seem to happen if I am a little dehydrated.

I've never had a hangover and good lord knows I've tried!!!

I just got over a migraine after being in pain for almost two days. I have been having migraines since around age 6. The longest migraine I have had lasted five days....

Rossie, thank you, it's a bit better now! I'm glad that you don't get awful headaches! And especially nice that Advil takes care of them for you! When I get very slight headaches sometimes that helps, but usually it turns into a migraine at some point, so I try to keep some meds on hand!

Kira, actually the last time I was there they did give me Reglan and Atarax in IV form which does help, they did give me some to bring home with me in pill form, I took it but this time I got no results I thought about going to the ER but I don't have insurance right now, so my mom was nice enough to give me a pain killer (the good kind) and after that and some rest with a cold wash cloth and some head rubs from my sweetie it eventually went away and even in time to watch the fireworks Sounds like you have been through the bad headache routine yourself, though! They're awful

Oh Peggi YUCK When I get headaches usually they turn to migraines I hope you get rid of it for good! OTC stuff NEVER helps mine I usually have to take Loratabs to knock them out.

I feel for you Peggi... Migraines can be completely debilitating and lots of people don't understand that. I've had migraines since I was 15. My birth control pill was worsening them so I changed that, I get tension headaches, 3 years ago I got glasses and still have trouble with that, my migraines have not gone away but caffeine seemed to be making them worse so I gave up coffee about 6 months ago (that was tough as I was a major coffee drinker and just went cold turkey) and about 2 years ago I started getting cluster headaches. I didn't know they had a name until this poll. I'm so glad to finally have a name for that. I'd be walking down the street going about my normal headache day and then be stopped dead in my tracks in so much pain and I had no idea what it was.

I get sinus head aches often. I really think I need to be back on allergy shots but I don't have insurance at the moment . I get migraines too but most of them are related to the sinus issue and not getting relief. The only thing that takes my migraines away are these expensive prescription pills So I save those for the ones when I just can't take it anymore. Without meds, my migraines can last up to 3 days straight. It hurts to even touch my head. It starts hurting my neck and shoulders. I get them so bad that I cry at times because there is just nothing else to do. My fiance is sweet and rubs my forehead and temples. If it's sinus he will massage with his thumbs on both sides of my nose near my eyes. I've even got out my InfraRed massage and just on the head massager attachment or the rounded one and just hold it against where it hurts. Sometimes it helps to lay in a hot bath with my head slightly under the water.

Most of the time my headaches are the eye strain sort, but they come around sometimes even if I'm not doing anything that would strain my eyes. I tend to either take a short nap or a few aspirin to fix the pain.

Ouch, day four! Mine rarely get that long lived, though I just got over a three day one yesterday.
I get migraines (which are chronic and of varying intensities), clusters, tension, sinus, and occasionally hormonal headaches. The migraines I've had for as long as I can remember, and they have strictly limited my diet since the worst triggers include a good number of food preservatives found in most processed food.
The hormonal ones started a few years after I hit puberty, the tension headaches are actually pretty rare but often become migraine triggers, and the sinus ones started two years ago.
Hangovers are moot, and I'm very, very careful with my love of caffeinated beverages so that I don't become *actually* addicted or suffer withdrawal if I don't have any for a while. And thankfully I rarely have eyestrain problems (at least that I notice). I'm also very careful about never taking more than the recommended dose of medication, even if it seems like I've burned through it too quickly.

I get several types. The worst are migraines where the only thing that will fix them is to get sick and go to sleep.
