Painkillers Can Make Headaches Worse

This has been said on the television this morning.  There’s more here.

I used to suffer from bad migraines brought on by flashing lights and exercise, but since being diagnosed as a coeliac and going on a gluten-free diet, I don’t get them any more.

I haven’t taken a painkiller since C died, except when I was suffering two years ago from bad pain in my face due to a tooth and when I had the tooth out.

If I have a slight pain, I use a measure of Scottish falling down liquid, diluted with London tap water.

  1. It wont surprise you to hear me say that Scottish falling down water is as dangerous as painkillers! If you take more opiate based meds such as codeine, than you actually need, you will get headaches from the surplus which isnt used up. At least that used to be the explanation.
