Does anyone get headaches daily? Ever since surgery I've had a nasty headache every single day. I told the doctors time and time again. I get the same thing....don't take anything but tylenol. Tylenol does not help at all. So, they gave me fioricet. Which hardly takes the edge off but does make me loopy so I don't care as much that I'm in pain. Its has an effect similar to being buzzed and I wake up w/ a nasty headache like a hangover everyday, fioricet or not. When I first got out of the hospital I was on codeine/tlenol. That stuff worked great. Not only it took my headache away for days, it made me feel better about life because I didn't have any pain. But, of course it had to end. I can't be on that for a long time. It was affecting my brain. I was very forgetful and felt like I was becoming addicted to it. All I could think about was when I could allow myself to take another narco. So, I stopped. I still think about it though, not a day goes by that I don't want some. I like to say that I want it because its the only thing that I've found that takes care of my headaches, but thats now, and I'm sure if I were to go back on it, I'd feel the addiction pull again. So, as my coordinators say, I'll just have to suffer through it until the meds are lowered and the side effects decrease. Oh, well. Another sleepless night filled with wishful thinking of blowing off my head to stop the pain.
