Is my headache serious? Please help ☺

Postby Britishmahomie » Thu Aug 28, 2014 4:30 pm

Yesterday I got a dullish headache my hair was in 4 plaits and crossed over my head and it was quite heavy I took it out and it was there for a little bit I took some paracetamol and I was fine. The next morning I was fine until I put my hair in plaits again and my dullish headache came back it was a very mild headache. I also should mention I have ice pick headaches (small jabs of pain in random parts of my brain that lasts for like 1/2 - 1 second they aren't crippling either) is it a tumour? Or is it just the weight of my hair? Are the jabs of pain serious? Thanks ☺

I think that the headache you mention is likely to have been caused by your hair being slightly too tight or placing too much pressure on one part of your head..
I can relate a lot to this.. because i have quite long hair, when i put it in a bun or high ponytail; my head aches.

The ''ice pick'' headaches sound painful and I'm sorry that you get them.. I have no idea what those could be but i do know that stress or anxiety can cause migraines and lots of other physical symptoms so it's possible that yours could be caused by the same thing..

However; if the ice pick headaches are new to you and/or you're worried about them then please pop along to your doctor and have a chat about them.
Shine me a light up
and i'll run round the moon..
