Serena said:Heather--If your headaches are that bad, you really shouldn't be seeking advice here. I hate to see you delay on something that may be serious. There are SO many factors that could be involved.
If your diabetes isn't well controlled, that will cause headaches. If you have high blood pressure, that will also. There are all sorts of minor triggers, such as certain foods, chocolate, cheeses, caffeine, etc. Or it could be a sinus infection, tension, eye strain, etc.
A BIG factor that not many people are aware of is what's called the "rebound effect". Which basically means, the more medication you take--even aspirin or Tylenol, but especially certain narcotics and over-the-counter preparations--the worse the pain will get. A lot of the OTC migraine products nowadays contain a combination of aspirin, acetaminophen (Tylenol), and caffeine. While caffeine can help a migraine, it is also a known migraine trigger.
I know this isn't what you were hoping for, but with your history of diabetes, and I'm not sure what else, if the headaches are persistent and/or worsening, please don't try anyone's home remedies. It's very important that you see a doctor.
