Persistant Headache and general exhaustion

Post by davisherm » Wed Mar 28, 2007 4:07 pm

Hi everybody. I've tried fixing this myself but I'm just too strung out to manage much of anything lately and I could really use a boost.

I'm hoping I'm just really run down from being so incredibly busy these days. Spring is a time of change and we've got lots of change this spring. Perhaps too much.

I'm just plain worn out. I'm not sleeping well at night and I've had a headache that fades but never quite goes away. It starts between my left eye and ear and slowly spreads. It seems to happen mostly when I'm at work - which makes me think stress and florescent lights, but I've worked in this kind of environment for five years and it never really hit like this before.

Right now I've got either a swollen gland or a pulled muscle in my neck, so I can't move my head very far to the side without a severe stab of pain running down into my shoulder. I also have pressure in my ear on that same side.

The good news is I'm not running a fever. I'm also getting a shift change in the next few weeks, which should make things easier. As things are right now, I don't get home till 10 at night and then I have trouble falling asleep before 2 or 3, while still having to be up around 8. Starting next Friday, I'll be home around 5pm. Woo! Thank the gods!

I'd appreciate any good thoughts and blessings you can spare in my direction.

Thanks!

Blessings to you, Davisherm. You're in my thoughts. [-o<

My grandmother used to get terrible headaches that started behind her left eye. I think migranes start there too. You might like to go to the doctor and get it checked out.

The headache could also be caused by the pain in your neck. Maybe you've pulled something or pinched a nerve. Try changing your pillow, adding another or sleeping without one for a day or two, to see if that changes anything. A dream-pillow with some lavendar might help you sleep.

Some Reiki would be wonderful! Thank you!



I've tried the pillow thing, go from one to two to none. With no effect. The headache was there before the neck pain. I don't think they're related, just tag teaming me.

This is not a Migraine... at least not yet. It's never quite gotten to that level of pain.

Definitely sending what I can. I can sympathize, this past week I was working so much between my new and old jobs, AND going to school, that I got myself sick! So now I'm wasting a perfectly good weekend off trying to recover. I definitely feel your pain Davish! [-o<

Ok so I know this is a relaly dumb question, But what exactly is Reike? is it Massage theropy? I'd like to reveiw some websites on it if you can send me some,

Sending healing your way Dav for your headaches. I know it sounds weird but have you tried to pop your neck? WHen I get headaches I usually pop my neck and they feel alot better. If you can't do it try a Chriopracter.

Amazingly enough, my headache is almost completely gone. The pain and swelling in my neck is still there but nowhere near the intensity it was at the other day.

Thank you all so much for your help! I feel almost 100% again. I may even go to the gym tomorrow.

Davisherm, I am so glad you're feeling better. A persistant illness is the worst kind. I hope your neck continues to get better as well. [-o< [-o<

SageWolf, Never a dumb question!

CHL is our resident Reiki master, and she's got me hooked on it now. From the moment I heard about it, I wanted to learn it. Here's my favourite site.
