So far, I've had a headache for over a week. It's not near migraine level (though I've never had one), but it's strong and ever present. I've been taking sinus medication on top of advil.
I live with 3 roommates and none of them are experiencing anything like this (and they are typically more sensitive to these things).
We recently moved to CO from sea level (though I've lived at more than twice this altitude with no problem, so it should be that).
The headaches are mostly around my temples, but sometime towards the back of my head.
I don't have health insurance, so seeing a doctor is too costly unless it's really serious.
Is this something I should just keep medicating and wait it out? Or should I pay for a doctor (on a reaaallly tight budget) for something that might just be a sinus headache?
I had "killer" sinus headaches that started suddenly when I was in my forties. About ten years later, around 1998? while visiting a health food store in Arizona, the manager told me "if people took MSM, they would not have sinus headaches." I bought a bottle and when I returned to Texas, I started taking them. I stopped having sinus headaches. True story! I took just 1000 mg per day for several months - can't remember exactly how long - and later started taking it for a few days only when I felt the slightest sinus headache symptom. Many months, maybe even a year passes before I feel even a twinge or hint of the headache. I am going to start taking the recommended dosage for detox and hopefully some relief from knee pain. I have never seen MSM touted for sinus headaches online, which is a shame. If you have them, you know how miserable and sick they make you feel.
