I have a never ending headache that I wake up with and that gets worse throughout the day until I'm forced to take Advil to deal with it. All my energy is gone, my joints are achy and I have these random spells where it feels like a furnace inside me kicks on and I start sweating and the headache gets worse and for a couple minutes I'm just totally sick and nauseous. The only thing that gets me through it is knowing it will be over quick...I've been researching the hypothalamus because I do have hypothyroidism and I'm on Aricept for brain fog...my Dr. wants to schedule a sleep apnea test and I'm ok with that I just wonder if it could really be my problem or if it's just another wasted test... :-( Please help!
