I am getting frequent headache

I am having the headache for the past 1 year and it was severe from last 3 months and it is almost every day. I consulted a neurologist he prescribed to have Amitriptyline Hydrochloride starting from 10 MG, now I am taking 100 MG, but headache continues to appear once in a week. By taking this medicine I started getting side affects like acidity constupation. Now I am really worried, should I continue or should I switch the doctor ? I also got CT scan done and there was not defect in brain. Pls need expertise advise...

Hi,

Read up CLUSTER HEADACHE on the net maybe on Weikepedia and see if you suffer from that ordeal if you do. Please tell your neurologist or change to one who specialises in Headaches.

All the Best.

hello, according to what you have described you have vascular headache or migraine headache for which regular lifestyle is important that is timely food, good sleep and avoiding some food items like cocoa, cheese ,chinese food, colouring masala,nuts.
avoid starvation,hot sun ,noise and cold. i think that the tablet you are taking is not working for you.so consult the doctor and try some other medicine which will help you. dont worry vascular headache is curable.
I find this answer helpful

Amitryptyline is given for migraine headache, rebound headache. If your headache is not coming down you need to see your neurologist again. You can ask for medications to ease your acidity.

Hi, I am 21 years old and I have been getting this really uncomfortable crunching in the back of my head when I turn my head side to side, then there is usually some pain to follow. I also get a weird grind like feeling when I tilt my head to look up and it hurts after that aswell, (sometimes as it happends), then I feel a little dizzy and off balanced. I also get a fair amount of pressure in my head which is relativley painfull. I would also like to add that my mother has osteoarthritis, fibromyelga, and degeneritive discs. So i am wondering if any of those are hereditary because she has had some of the same symptoms.
