why do we get headaches yahoo answers

For quite a few months now, I have been getting headaches quite regularly. Sometimes it is just a really, really painful, unbearable one and that is all I get all week. But mostly I m just getting normal headaches about once a day, maybe every 2 days. Also when I get out of bed in the morning, everything goes blurry and I black out for about 2-3 seconds before it clears. It s the worst when I first get up, but if I sit down or lie down for a while then get up the same thing happens. I have to be lying down usually for about 30 minutes minimum for this to happen. About a year and a half ago I was in hospital for a week with orbital cellulitus and I had sinus probelms for about 6 months after that - I was on antibiotics for a few months. All that has gone now though and I m 98% sure this is nothing to do with my sinuses. These headaches don t have anything to do with my period because they are happening all the time.


I usually don t eat breakfast but if I do (which is about twice a week) I have a yoghurt and banana smoothie. For lunch I have a roll with lettuce and tomato on it and sometimes a cookie or chocolate or soft drink (eek I know, unhealthy). For after noon tea I have usually maybe like 3 biscuits or something to that extent. For dinner I always have a healthy dinner, something different almost every night (my parents are very into gourmet cooking) with meat every night. I don t usually have dessert. I am 14, which is young yes but please don t give me some bullshit like it s because I m growing - I haven t grown for about a year, so I have stopped. I don t do much excerise, I go on a 30km bike ride every Saturday and that is it. Another thing I would like to know about (not sure if this is related to the headaches) but why is I am always very very tired when I get home from school each day and feel I could sleep for hours and hours.


Sometimes ( I try not to) if I don t have homework or assignments (ver VERY rarely) I fall asleep at 4:30 and wake up at 7:30 but go back to sleep at about 9 and wake up at 7 the next morning, still feeling like I could sleep for longer. I haven t always had this, this tiredness has only started in the last 2 months. Why is it that I m always tired and getting headaches about every 2 days, sometimes every day??
I m a sufferer of migraines, so I kind of know what you are talking about. For me though, tablets don t work if it is really started (I throw them. I m a sufferer of migraines, so I kind of know what you are talking about. For me though, tablets don t work if it is really started (I throw them up). Migraines are initiated through many things, ie your food habits (have you started eating something you re not used to recently? ), exposure to some chemicals (solvants, cleaners, ect) and of course excessive stress. For me, for exemple, I get migraines every time I have to give an interview.


No way around it. If you want to stop taking pills (even though you are lucky they work! ), I suggest you do some breathing exercises. They help a lot, because for me they do what pills cannot do. Choose any style you want, yoga or something else. Sometimes this also makes me sleep (about 15 minutes) and I wake up totally refreshed, no pills needed. Also check your food habits. For some people, tea will induce migraine (that s the case for my dad), for other people it is coffee, chocolate, or mint tea. The trick is to avoid taking these things for a while and see if you still have the headaches. Also it s not a bad idea to get a good check-up from your doctor. Sometimes migraines are caused by other things (and I do not mean brain tumor; usually in the case of brain tumors, you will have other symptoms, such as speach impediment, paralysis, mood swings, ect). In some cases, liver or gall bladder problems will show up migraine as main symptom. Hope this helps For the best answers, search on this site
