If you use feverfew daily at bedtime. I also find it helpful to use something that I haven't used before or for a long time in a different family of medications.
1. ALKA SELTZER with ACETYLSALICYLIC ACID (aspirin) [aids in pain & swelling].
2. It is NOT the same as TYLENOL (ACETOMINOPHEN) [aids in pain only]
3. nor MOTRIN (IBUPROFEN) [aids in swelling, inflamation & pain]
It sounds more like it would be a MIGRAINE or AURAS (flickering lights or spots in eyes) associated with MIGRAINES or TENSION HEADACHE. Many things can trigger a HEADACHES/MIGRAINES: using your arm in an awkward way (bowling) when you don't normally do that, lack of food (skipping meals), head resting in a hairdressers sink, going to a concert with light show, video game screen with fast movements & flashing lights, staring in the light (sun) constantly on your eyes...etc.
If you experience a headache with ANY LOSS OF WEAKNESS, SLURRING, IMBALANCE or FEVER, then you need to seek medical attention immediately for a consult to make sure there isn't something more serious going on.
You should always keep track of your headaches on a calendar in your room or dayplanner so you have something to show the doctor if this becomes an ongoing problem. If you were doing something the day before or earlier in the day that may have triggered it, then mark that down too.
The ears are either tension from stress or tension stress from your TM joint in your jaw. It can make you sickly with migraines if out of place even a smidge.
I used Maxalt Melts which dissolve in your mouth so you don't throw up your meds or money. It's good to keep on you.
This machine I purchased, I came across at a chiro's office. The round head with all the tiny prongs, when turned on your head, it vibrates it and it counter hits the migraine and stops the pain and nausea.
It's an expensive machine, so it's great if you find an office with the same machine and applicator head (large round multi pronged head)...either physio or chiro. It really messes up the hair.
When I ordered my massager and tool kit (heads), they didn't include the multipronged head even though it showed it in the picture, so if you order one and this happens...just call them and ask for the correct head.
You turn it on and control the dial as to how much pressure or how hard you want it. You lie down with head hanging by the edge of the bed and you just move it all over your head starting with the trigger site. When you're numb enough, stop.
A lifetime of headaches, migraines, TMJ headaches, head injury, etc.
