My first thought was a tension headache before I read your friends suggestion. I get them for weeks at a time depending on my stress levels. They’re really hard to stop and pain killers barely touch it.

Talk to your general practitioner, you’ll need to find the cause of them.

@Sweethart:  I had a baddie like that too that lasted for days and days and days. When it spread into I called the nurses helpline and she said tylenol every 4 hours and try and stretch out my neck and back and if that didn’t work go to the hospital for better drugs. I did that and slept a whole bunch and laid around for the weekend and it went away eventually. So frustrating though! Hang in there.

I get those occasionally. Massaging the top of my neck helps a bit, as does rubbing peppermint oil all across my forehead.

I sound like a wacko suggesting this on every headache topic. My dr said to take magnesium every day, and another dose if I get one. It’s seriously helped.

I get headaches like that alot.  What can help is a heating pad or hot washcloth on your neck.  The heat can release tension without causing actual changes to your muscles, like a massage would.  At least, it normally helps me.
