Hey everyone...my name is Jenny and I have had tons of headaches as far back as I can remember..even as a teenager. They really started getting bad after my first child was born (I had an epidural, which I think may be partly to blame). My Mom used to get severe headaches as well, some would last days where she was incapacitated and on the couch.
Anyhow, to the point..LOL. I have had a ton of stress in my life the last 2 years. Mom passed away, divorce, move, job change, etc. So, I know that I get the tension headaches sometimes. Other times, they are worse/different type of headaches. These start like last night during work. (I type for my job)I started getting moody, irritable. I thought... well it is just PMS. This morning when I woke up, I had a bad headache right above my right eye. I also felt kinda nauseated. When the kids got up and started yelling for me, so I went upstairs, and right away when I got up where it was lighter, I just wanted to get under something away from light and the screaming. I took some Aleve, which helped, but it is still there. I just feel very weak and not 100%. There is no fever, no sinus drainage or anything. I HATE when this happens! Could this be migraine? I mean, I should go to tyhe doctor, but I just can't afford one right now with insurance loss due to divorce, etc.
