    Ive got the ones with 500mg paracetomol and 30mg codiene and i take 2 and they are hardley making a dent in it. Ive only just been able to get up - i had to do something today as looking normally hurts i figured a computer screen wouldnt hurt much more.

    Call NHS Direct; they might be able to recommend something. Normally I'd never advise listening to people on the internet but since you seem a little bit concerned I'd just give NHS Direct a bell.

    The main cause for headaches is dehydration.

    Don't worry, the nastiest causes for headaches cause headaches worst in the morning, on leaning forward and coughing/sneezing. Call NHS direct as people have said. It's what it's there for.

    Have you taken any painkillers at all, ones that are available without prescription?
    Ive been taking my prescription painkillers that ive got for something else. I think ive found a way of not having a headache if i hold my head in a certain way. Its worse at night and in the morning but i dont know if thats because i havent slept.

    I heard that if you sleep with your right side again the pillow you won't get a headache, if it's due to you the way you sleep. Something to do with the brain.
    But i'm really not sure.

    Well if i tilt my head kinda backwards it gets better. It still feels like someone has whacked me on the top of my head. I've only had it a day or so. I think maybe im gonna try NHS direct but ive heard they'll either tell you to go see your doctor or go to hospital.

    Any othe symptoms, particularly anything to do with the muscles on your face feeling odd? If yes than A&E NOW! If not then see a GP or pop into hospital in the morning.
