Anonymous asked: I hear that migraines affect one side of the head and regular headaches affect the entire head with dull pain. Now I have regular headaches/migraines that usually happen after I wake up late or not drink enough water or excercise too much. It only happens to the back left side of my head with a sharp pain and a throbbing in my left eye as if someone is hitting it from the inside with a hammer. They last the entire day. Could you please tell me what this is and how I could prevent/get rid of it?
I get the ones on my eye too, I always say it feels like a small person is sitting on my eye haha. In order to prevent it I would say drinking water and staying hydrated is key, especially with exercise. Also stay away from caffeine as often as possible, and try eating healthier. If that still isn’t helping just remember that the Internet is always full of helpful information.
Caffeine is the most commonly used mood-altering drug in the world, and coffee is one of the most popular means of ingesting it. Over 50% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis, and that figure is thought to be increasing every year.
But there’s more to coffee than its caffeine content, and scientists are perpetually trying to make sense of the various effects that this mysterious brew has on our bodies. Coffee’s most recent brush with media attention came just a few weeks ago, with the release of a study that showed women who drank four cups of coffee per day had a 20% lower risk of depression than those who drank a cup or less per week. But coffee isn’t always billed as a wonder beverage; caffeinated and decaffeinated versions alike have built up a pretty serious rap sheet over the years. Here are 10 reasons coffee is either an elixir of the gods, or an evil concoction we’ve all been duped into loving unconditionally.

Anonymous asked: So migraines can give you stroke-like symptoms? Cuz I had my arm and hand and half my face go numb, which seemed kind of stroke like to me? Is it something to be worried about? I don't know, I'm not really sure about any of this- sorry if I'm wasting your time ^^;;
That’s not a waste of time! Yes it is serious, many migraine symptoms are. You should try and get that checked out to see if there is anything you can do about that.
I recommend seeing Dr. Aleksander Mauskop at the NY Headache Center. Google him. One of the top headache guys in the world. Some of my migraines used to simulate stroke symptoms. He advised me to take some OTC drugs and I went from 20 epic headaches a year to one or two very minor ones.
FH: Thank you for the submission! Anyone else in the NY area know about him? He seems pretty legitimate from his website.
