Intense Head Pains
Fri, 12-11-2009 - 7:12pm
When i was younger maybe 7, I don't quite remember how yong but I know it was under 10, I was swimming in my pool and swam right into the concrete and tile head first. I experienced intense head pains and all I wanted to do was cry and sleep. I never told anyone because I was afraid I would get in trouble and everyone was busy. The whole day the excruciating pain lasted all day. That night I went to sleep. Years latter, I am now 20 and have been experiencing those same head pains just a little less painful but painful just the same. Should I tell my doctor or just leave it alone because it is only a headache?

Hi! If I were you, I would tell your Dr. about any intense head pain and anything that might help him to diagnose any potential issues.

Have you dropped by our Migraines and Headaches board to discuss your headaches with any of the members there who struggle with the same issues?
