I’ve had a headache for a week or more. I wake up with it and then it gets a little better and then at night it starts to get worse. It is mostly a dull pain and not very extreme, just always there and annoying.
I found the Complete Headache Chart that describes what I have as:
Arthritis Headaches: Pain at the back of head or neck. Intensifies on movement. Caused by inflammation of the blood vessels of the head or bony changes in the structures of the neck.
Tension-Type Headaches: Dull, non-throbbing pain, frequently bilateral, associated with tightness of scalp or neck. Degree of severity remains constant. Causes: Emotional stress. Hidden depression.
I don’t have much emotional stress or hidden depression, but I could use some time off – I am very sick of working all the time.
I am going to the doctor today to get another Lyme test, and whine about my headache. I think it might be strain from reading on the bus or trying to use the laptop computer while Ollie sleeps on my chest, but there may be a medical reason for it. If the Lyme disease is still with me, then this could be a symptom.
