What the heck is wrong with me :(

I rarely get headaches but I've have three in the past week. Really can't be bothered to do much, its a struggle just doing the everyday stuff at the moment. I'm an antisocial b'stard at the best of times but people just irritate me all the time now.

Is it sunny where you are?
Is there any countryside or parkland nearby?
I find a walk among nature usually lifts my spirits..
.. sorry if this isn't helpful, hope the gloom lifts soon :)

Alfaless for too long, Skoda overdose?
A walk is always good and out of the ordinary headaches deserve a visit to a GP.

All the best, ADF - hope it's nothing too serious.

A bit of a jog or some other activity that gets you in the zone through concentration tends to help.Even join a park run. Hope the headaches clear up!

Go feed the ducks and swear at the people feeding them bread.

That’ll cheer you up.

I’ve just told a bloke off in ikea for walking in my path three times while I was trying to overtake him, he was so apologetic it perked me up, his wife commented, “ He never looks where he’s going” She was right. :)

:vs_lol:

Don’t go to the alcohol cure. ;)

Do things that you enjoy, even if you're not completely in the mood. I've fallen into the trap where you sit on your arse in front of the telly instead of walking/running/cycling/cleaning the car/playing golf or whatever. Your brain and body will thank you for it.

Unless you're doing something stressful / pointless which is likely to bring on low mood / headaches (e.g. chief Brexit negotiator) definitely get yourself checked out - could just be sleeplessness but it could be the first signs of something more serious.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with Verbout but don't underestimate the simple joy that can come from going out for a pint with a few good friends.

I’m meant as a crutch, as a go to solution. :)

ADF is teetotal so don’t worry about him going out on a bender.

Although what KB says, regardless of what the pint is of, is sterling advice.

Small things in your everyday life will pile up against you, bit by bit, stupid inconsequential problem and insignificant irritating thing, one on top of the other, until the weight of it is slowly, imperceptibly, grinding you down. You need to do something to challenge, excite or just please yourself. Get a date on the calendar to look forward to, a meet up with fellow car/cat/cardigan enthusiasts, whatever. PM one of the guys on here you can relate to and say ‘Hi’ or start a ‘who is dropping by x location?’ thread and see who can drop in.

If it’s ‘just’ a headache think if you have done anything different lately, changes in routine, increased use of mobile device (pecking away with one finger!) reading, extended computer use, forgetting to use your glasses, etc. They can all trigger something. If you wear glasses when we’re they last checked?

If we have nothing above working then off to the quack, if you give them a call tomorrow you might get an appointment this side of TDWSNMUMD. :thumbs:





Get well, stay well, we all need you around here :)

ADF - I know how you feel. Been feeling the same myself. Never far from a packet of Anadin Extra. I'm sure its to do with the changing weather as we creep from Summer in to Autumn, I've had it a few times in the last few years. Doesn't help that's its the 1 year since my dad died either.

I like to get outdoors, feel whatever sun there is on my face and breathe fresh air. I also make sure I eat a little bit more healthily (A few less pies and white bread toast!).

At time I force myself to be a bit sociable, even if I am a grumpy t***.

Hang on in there, matey. Keep chatting to people and post on here too.

Julian

I'm with mj2k, possibly your headaches are contributing to your low mood.

Are you a glasses wearer, and if so, have you had a recent eye test?

Despite having excellent long vision, I was straining my eyes to the point I suffered loads with migranes, particularly at this time of year when the sun is lower in the sky - Never underestimate the effects of reflections and things, specifically off screens on your eyes.

Hope you get to the bottom of it soon.
