    Migraine Headaches?? When to know it's serious??
    Ashlea85 posted:
    I NEVER get headaches. Last week I was sick and severely dehydrated and that's when the headaches started. I quit drinking caffeine because I was so dehydrated and I thought the headaches was caffeine headaches. But now I get them everyday and they started to last longer every time. I have so much pressure in my head and I can feel my pulse in my head. Its a throbbing/pressure type all over. They last up to 12 hours. Even when they go away I feel pressure in my head real bad when I bend over or move my head to fast. Also when I look up with my eyes it hurts really bad. I've tried drinking caffeine and that isn't helping. Should I be worried?? Is it a headache or migraine?? I need help please!!!
