The band like quality of the headache sounds like a tension type headache. This is the most common type.
I also feel like my gums ache all the time. I do clench my teeth. Does this go along
I suggest that you ask your doctor about getting a sleep study done. Obstructive sleep apna is a common cause of recurring headches and would explain your fatigue as well.
with the tension headaches.
I am on thyroid medication.
The clenching of the teeeth sounds consistent with an anxiety related habit as though you are under a lot of stress.
I am on Lexapro 10 and Xanax .25 at night.
I do go once a week to the Chiro for an adjustment
Perhaps the dose of one or both needs to be adjusted or some other type intervention may be needed.
I just don't like the pressure behind my eyes all the time. Since July I have
been working on a computer. I did have my eyes ckecked.
With your snoring and the daytime sleepiness plus headches I do think that a sleep study to check for obstructive sleep apnea would be in order for you.
Ok. I will check that out.
Let me know if you have further questions and iw ill be happy to get back with you.
Do you just use Advil or Tylenol for the headaches?
These usually help tension type headches...
