    I've been getting these constant headaches where my head just feels like theres pressure and it's swollen. Went to see the doctor and he said that I should just watch it for now. Not sure what it could be, but sometimes it goes away, sometimes it comes back. Sometimes it goes away when I have some Tylenol. I've been taking Tylenol at least (2) times a day so far. Which is good because I don't want to be dependent on it.

    The doctor gave me some samples of Celebrex. I was wondering why since it's mostly for arthritis, etc. But I've found that Celebrex isn't such a good thing to take with the increased risk of getting a heart attack, etc.

    The next thing he was going to prescribe for me was Fioricet. But I've heard that you can grow dependent on that.

    And here I am, just wanting to relieve my headache......what do I do?

    I'm not taking any medications as of now....I started getting these headaches after an Opthamologist eye exam. Perhaps all the bright lights he shined in my eyes??

    Celebrex is good stuff and I've taken it plenty of times with no problems, but thats mostly for anti-inflammation.

    oh, interesting. I only drink at the most a glass of water for breakfast, 1 Sierra Mist cup from McDonald's for lunch, and another glass of Sierra Mist for dinner. So I'd say I only drink like (3) times a day.

    Does it have anything to do with working out? If I sweat a lot and don't drink a gatorade (to get the sodium/sugar) back in my system, I'll get a really bad headache.

    Water intake is important, a gallon a day is the least I drink. It is more about how much you drink all at once. A gallon in 15 minutes would probably be bad, but a gallon a day is definitely worth doing...

    hahhaa 3 glasses of water a day? whoa

    remember guys, if your pee is a darker yellow color and not pale pale yellow, you need to drink more water

    (or alternatively, stop spending so much on vitamins)
