I’m not talking about tension headaches triggering migraines, or suffering from both at different times. Can you have a migraine AND a tension headache at once?
Two days ago my neck and back of the head felt very stiff (I have a mild form of arthrosis) to the point of becoming pretty painful when I changed position. Other than the pain and tension I didn’t have any other kind of symptoms, and since I’ve been poppin’ paracetamol these days because of migraines I try not to take anything if I can help it.
I go to bed and after a couple hours I wake up with a pain in my head so intense I cannot sleep. The odd thing is that half of my head, the back and neck still hurts like it did before, the pain is stronger, but the type of pain is the same. But the rest of my head now hurts too exactly like in a migraine. As in half of my head was imploding (tension), half exploding (migraine).I also felt sick, which points to migraine, but maybe it was just the pain?
anyway I took 3000mgs of paracetamol divided in 3 doses, and after that and sleeping an ungodly amount of time now I’m ok.
