    ok,I hope you have an open mind & some privacy.I am being 100% serious,it should help to distract your brain from the pain signals.You hum loudly with ur mouth closed changing pitch every so often. It should sound like moaning.
    Its free so worth a try,sometimes it helps me when I m in pain.Otherwise massaging your temples?

    a&e or a walk in centre is your best bet-they can probably give you a muscle relaxant or some really strong pain killers

    according to the gp it was muscle tension in my neck/shoulders causing it for the past few months, but it's been getting worse the whole time so I'm not sure what a&e would do?

    They'll give you some stronger pain killers. I went into a&e with bad stomach pains which regular painkillers weren't helping, so I got given morphine. If it's making you really uncomfortable you should go to a&e.

    Ring NHS direct, they can give you details of the nearest out of hours GP for you, and will make the process much quicker for you.
    Hope you're feeling better soon :hugs:

    Do you have anyone nearby that can give you a massage to try and ease the muscles? I get this a lot, painkillers don't work, although a 4head stick works temporarily. I think you need to find out the root cause of the muscle tension too, otherwise it won't get any better.

    I sympathise, I suffer really badly with headaches sometimes. I had a pretty much constant headache for a year, even waking up the middle of the night I would have one, and nothing got rid of it. I think you should go back to your GP when you can and see if they can do something other than pain killers that don't work (or make you feel sick, which a lot of the stronger ones do).

    Also, try applying heat to your neck and shoulders, such as those bean bags you put in the microwave or a hot water bottle. It might help soothe the muscles and ease the tension.

    Well when I went in which just stomach pains (It was ramadan at this time as well so I thought it was nothing) I ended up being diagnosed with appendicitis so...better to be safe than sorry.
