I know it sounds crazy to pipe in with all these voices trying to help. Nobody wants to sit by while a friend suffers. Just a couple of probably useless contributions:
1. Beware of caffeine. Please do not be offended -- I would have bitten the head off of anybody who tried to talk to me about it; I am not trying to say your headaches are not as bad: they are *all* bad. The worst headaches I have ever had came from withdrawal from caffeine. The caffeine came from caffeine-laced codeine-type painkillers.
2. Codeine can cause bad digestive trouble, which can bring on even more headache. I probably want the pain relief more than the next guy but now I hardly ever use opiates.
The really good news is that magnesium is a laxative. I am serious and hope you get better without my two farthing worth.
There's a puzzled-looking robin hovering outside my back window. Probably wondering if any worms live in there.
