I suffer daily from Headache. I exactly don't know it is migraine or something else. Actually I am also having constipation problem. I am trying my best to resolve constipation problem. But unable to resolve. Please give me suggestions. Thanks and regards, Quamar.
Your headache could be any one of many, many things. The constipation may or may not be related. That is all anyone can tell you via the Internet. It is impossible to even give you much in the way of reasonable suggestions with so little information.
Are you taking pain killers or other medications frequently to try to stop the headache? If so, be aware that taking these medications more than two or three days a week can make matters worse by causing headaches called medication overuse headaches or rebound. Some pain medications, especially those containing codeine can be constipating.
Please see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
