Why do I give you these two definitions? This is what happened to me today! And unfortunately happens quite frequently. It started about Noon, I took four Aleve after school, went home and went to bed. I was hoping that I would only need to sleep for an hour or so, OH NO...I went to sleep at 3pm and woke up at 7pm. It was so bad today that I even turned my phone off so no one could bother me. UGH...I don't understand why my body does this. It is something I have suffered with since I was a child, but it doesn't get any better as I get older. I've learned to live with it and realize it is a part of my life, but man oh man does it SUCK. So it is feeling a bit better now, but there are still some tendrils of pain threading through out the front of my head.
I suppose having headaches like this isn't great when you are trying to wean yourself off of coffee and caffiene?
