I've wasted many months this year thinking I'm going to die.  It's a full time job really.

Today I'm really struggling with this as I've had a headache worse than the normal one I've had for three weeks and paracetamol, ibuprofen and codeine aren't shifting it. I can't concentrate on anything else and I don't know what to do. It's round the back, on top and round my eyes. I've had food and plenty of water. I'm desperate now :-(

I think you've summed it up Natsab... You're not concentrating on anything else. If all you can think about is your head pain, there is no room for a distraction.

When I'm having a desperate moment, I ask my husband to tell me a story of his childhood or I suck ice. It doesn't always work but sometimes I concentrate on something else and the desperation takes second place in my brain. We wouldnt be having this conversation if we could just switch the anxiety off, but try and let something else in... Even if it's just for 10 mins to give you a break.

I really hope you can feel a bit better.

Thanks Cammycam, I did find my head felt a tad better when I concentrated on the tele for a bit. I have never heard of sucking ice! I fear that might give me brain freeze as well!

Thanks for taking the time to reply, it's so nice to talk to people who understand!

See.. You can do it. You can dull the pain by doing something small...I suck on ice because I find it soothing, it gives me something to do and because it's a little bit uncomfortable in the mouth it distracts me from other sensations going on in my body.

I hope you enjoy your Xmas,
