    Default Chronic Tension Headaches

    Hi all

    I have been experiencing what I believe are tension headaches, the ache in the head, comes over the eyes and ache in the shoulders.

    It started a few weeks back and the one I have now has been going since Friday. Came on real strong and then dulls out to a constant ache.

    Panadol isn't working, so I take Panadeine Forte (carefully) and that seems to knock out the pain but I can still feel it, does that make sense?

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get rid of them?

    I am otherwise quite healthy and am not on any medications.

    Thanks.

    Could it be related to sinuses? Is it worse when you lean over?

    No, but it does get worse when I try to lie down.

    Bowen therapy is amazing - I was getting some headaches and it really helped.

    I see a physio who specializes in headaches. The difference after seeing him was amazing! Could you see if there's a specialist in your area?

    Ohhh me too. I presume they're tension headaches anyway. I have had a CT which was all good. I know exactly what you mean too when you say it's gone but you can still feel it. I call it a shadow.

    My GP has given me a referral to a neurologist but I haven't been.

    So I have no advice but will eagerly be reading suggestions from others.

    I had acupuncture for my migraines. Was amazing. A single session stopped them for over a year. I could take so many drugs and they'd do very little. A constant hot shower for about an hour (plus a decent vomit) is the only thing that could dull it down so I could lie down in bed and sleep it off. Recently sent a friend for acupuncture after a 4 day migraine lingered. It pretty much disappeared after she'd had the acupuncture.
