For the past few weeks I have some intense headaches, so bad in fact that I went to the doctor. I told him that I was under a lot of stress lately and wondered if that was the cause. My blood pressure was okay so I knew it wasn't that I had written a post about headaches caused by blood pressure before. I also knew it wasn’t a sinus headache because of the location of the pain. He wasn't really sure what it was but I believe its stress. The doctor gave me a muscle relaxant to see if that would help. I have taken it for about a week but it hasn't done much good. The thing that is bothering me is that my attacks have been worse, leading me to believe that the headaches are having an adverse effect on my Meniere’s.
In the past I have written about the connection of migraines and Meniere’s disease. Migraines are more than just bad headaches and I don't believe that I have a migraine, right now. The headache I have feels like pressure is pushing down on my head rather than the throbbing pain of a migraine.
Granted it could be just all the stress that I'm under right now. I just don't know. I'll give it another week and see if the headaches go away before I go back to the doctor.
