I hear you there, Kristen.
I know what kind of headache you are talking about, several months ago for almost 2 months straight I had that type of headache, it was mainly from lack of sleep. I took ibuprofen almost everyday. I was beginning to feel like a junkie. Then I started getting gastric irritation-type symptoms (probably from taking the ibuprofen) and started to have to take pepcid. I was like my goodness, I feel like Im falling apart. It felt like it was a choice between a headache or an ulcer or taking both meds almost everyday. I take something to be able to not suffer and leads to me having to take something else. I laid off the ibuprofen and made it more of a point to get more sleep. Things are much better now except for those times when a migraine hits me.
