Painful Headache

Every now and then I get these headaches that will last two to three days. My head feels okay when upright, but the second I tip it either to the front or back, as in bending over to pick something up or leaning backwards in a chair with my head bent back, this stabbing pain occurs in my temples and towards the back of my head. I can take Extra Strength Tylenol and get some relief, but good lord what causes it?? And is there a way to get rid of or avoid them?

Should you avoid taking Codeine and Caffeine for headaches?

My girlfriend was told something by her doctor this morning that to my ears sounds strange, or at best misleading. He basically asserted that you should never take pills like Solpadeine and Syndol because they contain codeine and caffeine, which in the long run cause more headaches and ultimatley makes them worse.

Why do I sometimes get a headache after an orgasm?

Once in awhile, I get a short-lived pounding headache immediately after coming. It usually happens after a really big one. Yesterday the headache was all around my skull, in the back and top and everything. Why oh why?

I Want to Drink Red Wine Again

I get migraines from MSG (including many "hidden sources"), meat cured with nitrates, and red wine (I think tannins or sulfites or something). As long as I avoid those triggers, I'm relatively headache-free. However, I really love red wine. I haven't had it for about 4 years, and I miss it. Are there types of wines that are better than others for keeping headaches at bay? Organic or certain types?

Migraine and Kids

What options are available for children of 5 years with Migraine? Last night my son had his first. I started with them at 5 too, but back then there were to triptans or anything else. I've put the question in to the family doctor and haven't heard back yet, but I'm sure the answer I get will be limited to the Dr's experience and training. So, MeFi, what do you do for your kids when they suffer an attack?

Severe weather = severe headaches?

Just before heavy rain/thunderstorms (especially so if lightning is involved) I get incredibly lethargic, fall in and out of sleep, get severe headaches, become panicky and restless and then after the whole spectacle is over, the horrible state I'm in vanishes. Why does this happen, and is there is a good way to treat/prevent it?
