For years I've been suffering with frequent headaches. I am now getting them daily and often from within an hour of waking up. I first visited the doctor about18 months ago who found through blood tests I had slightly overactive thyroid and low iron. She put me on iron tablets for a couple of weeks but did not request I get retested and did not think my headaches were related. At the same time I had my eyes tested (I have the correct prescription glasses) and tried cutting out specific things from my diet, which had no effect. I am now back with the doctor (a new one) as they are more severe and frequent. She thinks they are stress related and has had me on 10mg of amatriptiline a day for the past month. This has made no difference so has increased me to 20mg a day for the next 2 weeks until I finish using Champix and then wants me to increase to 30mg a day. She will also retest my bloods this week.
I'm not concerned there is any serious issue going on but I don't want to end up on amatriptiline for the rest of my life. I haven't had a migraine for a long time, I would just call these severe headaches but it's getting too much to deal with all day every day. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello,
I am having a few problems at the moment but what I have found gets rid of my headaches in the morning is a glass of water with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in it. it tastes a bit gross but you get used to it and it is okay after a while but really does clear the head and makes you feel wide awake. The best one to use is organic with the 'mother' apparently. hope your headaches clear soon
