Day 5 of this headache
I'm on day 5 of this headache that I can't shake. I've taken everything under the sun and tried everything. But now, I'm smelling things, weird things. I think I'm going nuts. And before you say it, no I'm not pregnant.

where's the pain coming from?

You can try rubbing your 'temples' or pressing them. There's a sinus cavity there.

You can also try pressing in the middle of the winged area between your index finger and your thumb. that can release headaches too.

I'd say, if it's been this long, try to make it to a doctor when you can. *hug*

oh it's got to be a sinus head ache. Press firmly on your eyebrows and on the top of your cheek bones - underneath your "eyes' bags", also, the same areas I listed as above. Oh yea, and also along the sides of your nose. It may hurt/ feel uncomfortable, but it's to help release sinus pressure.

Taking a decongestant could be good for you too if you haven't tried it yet.

If it's sinus, why can I still smell stuff?

you could still smell stuff even if it's a sinus headache. Doesn't mean your nose has to be clogged up. All the mucus is stuck up in your cavities. You have sinus cavities all over your face. Above your eyebrows. Under your eyes, on the sides of your head...

http://cfcenter.stanford.edu/sinus-graphic.gif

applying firm pressure, and gliding motions over those areas can help with sinus headaches. It may not go away at first, but it can help a great deal. And the decongestant can help all that stuff to become unclogged.


I'm not a doctor, but my mom's helped me out with this stuff all my life, and my massage class - learning facial massage has helped.

If it still doesn't go away soon, I'd still try to see a doctor.

I'm with h/s, try an otc sinus tablet. And then I suggest calling the doctor and making an appointment. You really shouldn't screw around with a headache that has lasted this long.

I just think it's a brain tumor. There's like this playdo, soap, friut smell in this room. The kitchen has this musty smell I've been all over trying to locate.

yea, Because it may not be sinuses, but that's my first guess - totally. But if it has stayed this long, I wouldn't let there be a chance for infection to settle in if it is that. It just really sounds like a sinus headache to me. Abou the back of the head, I'm not sure about that. But I know that you have two muscles back there - ocipitalus , and everything's connected throughtout your body.
