Every morning I wake up with a headache. It is a vertical pain over my left eye. If I take an imitrex migraine pill it will go away.

Is taking one imitrex every day bad? Does anyone have a cure for these headaches.

You may be dehydrated and have an increased Blood pressure. So, first drink plenty of water (8+ glasses of water or non-sodium beverage) a day. Next find the source: over exposure to fluorescent lighting, tv screens computer screens along with over stimulation may be a cause; salty or high sugary foods, too many fried foods; exposure to noise pollution, loud noises for long periods of time. When you find the source you can slow down on the pills. If you get migraines, try drinking peppermint herbal tea and honey, and the rest. Relax with a pillow over or blanket gently over your face breathe in less oxygen rich air and more carbon dioxide(the air you breathe out) for 15 minutes. some people use a paper bag. Either way if after fifteen minutes you don't feel a little better, do it again. If you get no relief you may need some blood work done.

In addition to taking medication, consider this. Is there a decision you're having problem making? either on someone else’s action,or because of past conditioning that makes decision making hard? Not wanting to see the situation that is
causing the indecision?

Hey!!! Headache every day morning? It help when you take a shower? do you work on computer? You will NOT believe!!!!
YOU NEED TO BUY EYE DROPS. Your eyes are very very DRY! You need to water them. Normal, random, cheapest eye drops (without steroids and drugs, medicines) will help! Without any papers. try it for this cind of haeadache. I had this cind of headake for about 10 years. I just use drops in the morning and when I go sleep! It is WORKING wonderfull! Thank you Tom From POLAND
