its a good idea to take a 15 minute break away from the screen every hr or look at the tv while on your laptop. your headache could also be a tension headache.

It might also be a good idea to make sure that your screen isn't too bright, and have your eyes checked, hugs, Judith xxx

Hi Lu.
I was thinking it might be a migraine coming.
Do you have any meds fro migraine?
You can get OTC painkillers to target migraines if not.
Hope you feel better soon.

That sounds a good idea.
Try to drink lots of water so you stay hydrated.
Also lie down in on your bed with the curtains drawn and breath really deeply as extra oxygen inside you helps.
Hope you feel better soon.

I'm OK as OK goes thanks Lu.
They have decided to reduce one of my meds I've been on since Christmas today as I am so sedated during the day. Having long sleep times is good (apart from the nightmares) but it can be up to 3pm before I 'come to' which isn't good and my memory is going big time. Totally disorientated but that could be due to this drug we are starting to reduce. If you said to me what did you do 2 days ago I wouldn't have a clue! It would take me a couple of minutes to work out what day it is today and then go back to even know the day. Scary.
Anyway hope your migraine eases.
You can also take neurophen with paracetamol if the pain is bad (as long as you can tolerate neurophen).
