I really need your help with my symptoms
« on: 05/12/2008 20:00:11 »
Hello every one,

From last 5 months i have been having ON and OFF light headaches, some time it comes on my eyes and some time one eye and than to other where i want to be in dark room to relieve and after 3 months i started getting light headaches every morning with little sore throat and the pain covered my neck too and back side of head and it is pretty severe now, i went to doctor and he said it is migraine and got me IBRUFEN which some time works and sometime not at all.

i never had migraine before but my dad does i am 25 years old.

does migraine gives you sore throat and neck pain? or is it like multiple things are running? please help me, i am tired.

Brane check out Inclined Bed Therapy on this site or in google. This is when the bed is tilted by raising the head end 15 cm's higher than the foot end. Should provide instant relief.

headaches every morning with little sore throat ...  i am tired.


Sleep apnea is a possible explanation for some of your symptoms ...

Quote
The most common signs and symptoms of obstructive and central sleep apneas include:

Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia) 
Loud snoring
Observed episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath
Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat 
Morning headache  
Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)

If you are having breathing problems while asleep you could record the sound of your breathing (snoring/choking) using an MP3 device then download the 8 hour recording into an audio editing programme like Audacity which will display a graph of sound-volume versus time  showing how long you are snoring and how many times you are awakened by apnea.
