excedrin usually knocks my headaches out within 5 minutes. my headaches are not bad but persistant. for the past week i will take an excedrin and it will basically take headache away, but my head still feels a little achy and pressured and i still get the sharp pain in the left side of my head when i cough around my temple area. my eyelids feel a little heavy. when i get up to fast i do get a painful throbbing in the left side of my head. i went to the urgent care saturday and the doctor told me she believed i had "ice pick migraine", they drew blood, she said she wanted to check something in my blood. I read about that and i don't think it's that. it only stabs when i cough or seldom sneeze, not when i bend over, it doesn't come out of nowhere and last for a matter of minutes. i've been feeling like this all day everyday for the past week. also feeling tired.
