I have a history of migraines with aura, none in the last year though. I have maybe a couple minor headaches a week at the most these days, and nothing that ibuprofen doesn’t help.
But I just woke up for the second day in a row with a dull, persistent pain in the back lower left side of my skull. I got a good night’s sleep and I changed positions several times over the night (which should have made it go away, at least always has in the past). Ibuprofen isn’t helping. I don’t have an aura and I’m not photosensitive or anything so I don’t think it’s a migraine (I’ve heard they can last 72 hours but I was always fine within 24). My routine has not changed, I’m just doing the same things I always do. Working, sleeping, playing on the computer.
I’ve never woken up with this persistent of a headache before. I don’t feel like I have a tumor or something. I don’t think my head is going to explode, though I don’t LIKE the feeling. It sucks because I don’t feel like anything I do is affecting it. But blah… should I go to the doctor? Feels dumb over something so minor.
