I wake up with a headache every single day. And have numerous migraines through out the week. I'd deal with the stomach pain and cramps and diarrhea.



Are they able to prescribe you anything for your constant headaches? They have me on Maxalt for when I get the migraines. It works pretty well, but with the bleeding disorder, not sure how that would work. I take ibuprofen every day in the a.m. What about BC powders? I think they have them in tylenol, and they work almost instantly. That way, you're stomach won't have to work as hard to dissolve a pill. OH! And I believe Tylenol has a tension headache medicine. It has the caffiene in it, but no NSAIDS. My first trimester I was a walking migraine, and normally tylenol doesn't do anything for me, but this stuff knocked it right out.

i would chose a headache- because it only goes away temporarily anyways and Motrin is causing more long term issues in your stomach ... you really need to get your primary doctor on your side. get some Vicodin. you don't need a specialist to prescribe it just your primary. i get frequent head aches normally from this heat/sinus stuff i believe... i try to drink like 100oz a day of water- 1 soda and a bit of coffee in the am... take tylonal..and put a cool rag on my forehead and the back of your neck... take a nap when you can and stay as cool as possible in this heat- wear sunglasses when it is bright outside...
i feel so bad for you =/ both is very miserable but i would avoid causing more long term issues in your stomach.. (scaring from ulcers can cause cancer-this is what i have to worry about also)
i will pray that you get the right primary doctor soon!

Quoting IDGAF ❤:" A sharp stabbing horrible headache or horrible stomach cramps with diarrhea? Weird question right now ... [snip!] ... it's starting to hurt my stomach...so if I take it I get stomach cramps and diarrhea shortly after but my headache is gone."


Stomach cramps and diarrhea.



When my headaches are at their worst I literally feel like stabbing myself in the eye with an axe would feel better.

I still bf so they have to be careful...but the Tylenol with caffeine stuff prob wont work seeing as I have tried Tylenol and I drink a good amount of caffeine everyday as is lol...but even then taking too much Tylenol can cause liver problems. There really is no win for me lol. Plus a lot of those medicines for headaches can have some pretty scary side effects

See I can't...My cramps are to the point I feel like I am in labor & throw up from the pain...so I am having diarrhea, crying from the pain, throwing up all at the same time....but the stomach thing is short lived...although after it I feel extremely tired.

My primary care doctor sucks...she never helps me for shit..she doesn't listen to me...doesn't care. I need a new one actually but I have no idea who would actually help me. I am just so fed up with doctors at this point, every time I go to one I usually leave being pissed off because nobody helps me....I live in pain every day because nobody cares to help me....they don't understand my disorder & think my issues are made up because they don't follow the norm...its just very frustrating.

Yea it finally got to the point I was about to throw up because it hurt so bad...so I took the Motrin it worked & I didn't cramp much at all....I actually felt pain free for ONCE....usually the Motrin only helps my headaches & not the joint pain...I didn't even have any joint pain god it felt fucking WONDERFUL to have NO pain....I wish every day was like that.
