hey. Stubbled across this site which googling side affects of yet another headache tablet.
If anybody can help..
I've suffered with a chronic headache nearly everyday for the past 8 months.
It started as a watery twitching eye which developed into stapping pains in my eye and around my eye socket,
When it's at its worth the back of my head near the base of my spine starts throbbing which is horrendous.
I also got droppy eye and numbness in that side of my face, the pain never crosses the midline and is always one sided.
I have had a mri scan, all clear. Was put on naproxen at first, zolmatripton. Which eased it at first.
I've tried amitriptyline at night but it makes me feel so groggy the next day I couldn't function.
I've tried all different types of painkillers paracetamol, codeine, ibuprofen.
Ive been given imigran nasal spray which I tried this evening, it took the pain away at first but 20 mins later it came back even worse!
I'm so tired and sick of this constant pain.
Has anybody tried acupuncture?
Any help will be massively welcomed
