I get really bad lupus headaches!I'v tried different meds-not much help there! I use those blue squishy ice packs.
I get lupus migraines as well, fairly mild - I can keep working but try to stay in a dim office and avoid noise. Mine tend to be hemispheric - I always say I can feel every crevice of my brain on whichever side hurts. Naprosen, ibuprophen, Excedrin.....all my friends!
Another thing that causes headaches - especially the "crown" feeling ones? TMJ - tempro mandibular joint syndrome - where the jaw is somewhat out of line. If you grind your teeth, talk to your dentist to get a mouthguard made. Ask your bed partner (if you have one!) if you grind your teeth at night - often people don't even realize they're doing it.
Love those blue squishy ice packs too.
I have the very same headaches. Do you have a lot of memory problems? I just can't seem to inderstand a lot of things, conversations.
