Headache Hell

Does anyone else suffer from bad headaches ? If you do, have you found anything that helps get rid of them. Im taking Dosulipin as a muscle relaxant and any other over the counter painkiller going, but nothing works. I have a full time job and im finding it hard to cope, please help. xx

I take 400mg ibuprofen and 2 x 15/500mg Co codamol, this sometimes eases off the pain but been told it’s more for a pain headache than a normal headache if that makes any sense as when I get em it’s like someone is stabbing me in the head constantly which isn’t a normal headache it’s an ms thing lol! If that doesn’t work I just have to go to bed. I like you work and know how hard it is but maybe try speaking to your gp or ms nurse about it and see if they can help.
Good luck xxx

@collywobbs71 , yes discuss this situation with your MS Nurse. It’s important to find the cause of the pain. Is it a normal type of headache or is it a form of neuropathic pain?

The medications are different dependant on that answer. Normal analgesics do not touch neuropathic pain.

I also take meds for neuropathic pain, am on pregablin. Like @stumbler said ms nurses will be able to help you.
There are a lot of times when nothing seems to work for me except rest but that isn’t always an option.
