This answer was rated:

Early this week I was suffering severe hay fever. I have never had such bad allergies. Two days ago it turned into splitting headaches causing intense nausea. I thought it was a sinus infection and called the advice nurse. She said it was a severe migraine and to just take Excedrin. This isn't helping. Any ideas?
