    I've been getting these headaches for a while now (over a year). Painkillers don't work. I've been to the doctors and she said it was either 2 things; tension headache or eye strain. She told me to go to the opticians or start something that will release tension such as running. I went to the opticians (a few weeks ago) and now I wear glasses for like reading etc I have also started running (a few months ago). But still they wont go away :sad: I don't know what to do!!

    Your safest bet is to go back to the doctors and tell them that what they suggested hasn't worked, from there they should suggest something else or perhaps pass you on to a local hospital which will give you an examination.

    Have you considered a relaxing deep tissue massage?

    I get this too. Not so much now but previously use to get really bad constant headaches which often lasted several days. Pain killers didnt help alot. GP said it was tension headaches and I was prescribed Nortriptyline for a month. Worked a miracle! This was about 2 years ago and since then i've not had a issue until quite recently where they seem to be creeping back.

    You should probably go back to your GP!

    I get the same and they told me the same thing! Turned out I have inflamed sinuses which make my head hurt cause they're always blocked up. In addition to this I get headaches indoors a lot, going outside helps
