Every Damn Day

For a long time now I have been getting headaches every day. My doctor won't do further tests until I prove to him these are not rebound medicine headaches - that is, these headaches aren't caused by the Advil I take every day to get rid of the headaches I get every day. Then next week I give up the coffee to see if its the caffeine. I'm a barrel of friggin' monkey right now.


  1. You have my sympathies. My neurologists gave me steroids to take the edge off the rebound headaches when they were ruling them out -- maybe that's an option? (It did help.)

  2. It's the caffeine. Be prepared for one of the worst headaches for a few days when you go off the caffeine, but then it gets better. But you need to make sure absolutely no caffeine (i.e., no chocolate) for it to work. Cutting out refined sugar helps a lot too. Good luck!
