I wake up almost everyday with a headache. I notice when the weather is hot or cold I can get a headache. I sleep with the fan hitting my aface because that's is the only way I can get some sleep. I used to take over the counter aids, but that doesn't seem to help anymore. I am 23 years old and have had these headaches ever since I began my cycle at age 11. They are usually right of my forehead. I've gained some weight and my pants could be too tight, could that be a reason? Liz.

I have been taking Imitrex for about 20 yrs. with very good results. In the last five yrs or so, after taking the Imitrex, I get body aches and joint pain. I also get sensations of heat, that feel like hot flashes. Is this normal? I am now 65 yrs old. Thank you, Louise.
Without examining you and perhaps seeing the results of an EKG, we can't really say if these reactions are "normal." We have patients older than you who continue to use medications in the triptan family (such as Imitrex), but we do require that our older patients have a standard cardiac evaluation to evaluate them for cardiovascular issues. Since these are new symptoms for you, they should be discussed with your doctor to be on the safe side.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
