About once a month I get these terrible (tension) headaches that lasts 2-3 days. I'm on Day 2 now. Hope it goes away soon.

I know it's a bad suggestion.. but I always pop 2 at a go so that it goes away faster (rather than taking 1 and end up popping another 2 if the headache doesn't go away).

Anyway, hope your headache goes away soon! Take care..

I have tension headache too. i see a chiropractor and i feel better. Now i am seeing a TCM doctor who pretty much does the same thing as my chiropractor.

I used to pop SO MANY painkillers, panadol and tylenol have ceased to work for me. i took Alieve, OTC but stronger and faster.

daddy and mummy:
I usually take 2 too! But I'm still breastfeeding (a little) so I thought I shouldn't since it was Panadol Extra. But yeah it didn't really work that well. Boo

You too? Why is it so common?! Did your chiropractor say what's the problem? I used to get migraines and at one point vertigo, so this is already a milder version. Thankfully!

I SCARED of TCM =P Esp the medication. Went before and I just could not make myself eat the stuff!

Corsage, I usually get that right before or at the beginning of my menses. Occasionally, it gets so bad that i will throw up. TCM has helped. Have you tried drinking the TCM stuff while pinching your nose? It helps for me.. :)

Anya's mum:
Oh dear, you too? Seems like a pretty common thing. Everyone's been texting/emailing me to try TCM. Eepy! Scared!

my neck is too straight, it's supposed to be an S curve. And the bone holding my skull is misaligned.

u need to get an xray to determine ur cause.

Good news is, if u've been having headaches all along, it's probably not serious. If u've just suddenly developed headaches, then u need to worry. It's an odd logic but it's what the doc told me.

Oh and also, stay hydrated. Being dehydrated always worsens the pounding for me.
