A sharp stabbing horrible headache or horrible stomach cramps with diarrhea? Weird question right now but atm this is what I'm trying to decide. I have a horrible headache and Motrin helps but since I take it everyday for my headaches it's starting to hurt my stomach...so if I take it I get stomach cramps and diarrhea shortly after but my headache is gone.

I have headaches a lot so I know how you feel. I can deal with the stomach pain more. Drink some milk it coats your stomach. That seems to help mine.

Stomach cramps so painful it feels like labor and causes you to throw up from the pain.

It feels like a flu like headache mixed with very sharp pain between the eyes.

If you are having stomach issue's from taking motrin, I would stop taking it altogether. Motrin can cause stomach bleeding, ulcers and other stomach ailments. I would switch to tylenol.
I always take excedrin migraine for my headaches. It knocks it right out. It has aspirin in it, so that may bother your stomach too. Maybe get some tylenol rapid release gels. My Mom swears by them.

I've had a migraine for two days now so of course I'm going to choose the other. Lol. And I think if I had stomach cramps I'd say the opposite. Lmao

I know but Tylenol doesn't even touch my headache...Im not even supposed to take Motrin because of my bleeding disorder but I hella steer clear of aspirin but all NSAIDS can cause stomach issues...so it's take Motrin or be in horrible pain every day.

I wake up with a headache every single day. And have numerous migraines through out the week. I'd deal with the stomach pain and cramps and diarrhea.



Are they able to prescribe you anything for your constant headaches? They have me on Maxalt for when I get the migraines. It works pretty well, but with the bleeding disorder, not sure how that would work. I take ibuprofen every day in the a.m. What about BC powders? I think they have them in tylenol, and they work almost instantly. That way, you're stomach won't have to work as hard to dissolve a pill. OH! And I believe Tylenol has a tension headache medicine. It has the caffiene in it, but no NSAIDS. My first trimester I was a walking migraine, and normally tylenol doesn't do anything for me, but this stuff knocked it right out.

i would chose a headache- because it only goes away temporarily anyways and Motrin is causing more long term issues in your stomach ... you really need to get your primary doctor on your side. get some Vicodin. you don't need a specialist to prescribe it just your primary. i get frequent head aches normally from this heat/sinus stuff i believe... i try to drink like 100oz a day of water- 1 soda and a bit of coffee in the am... take tylonal..and put a cool rag on my forehead and the back of your neck... take a nap when you can and stay as cool as possible in this heat- wear sunglasses when it is bright outside...
i feel so bad for you =/ both is very miserable but i would avoid causing more long term issues in your stomach.. (scaring from ulcers can cause cancer-this is what i have to worry about also)
i will pray that you get the right primary doctor soon!

I'll take the cramps and poops over a headache any day. Wehn I get a headache, it's bad and I'm pretty much useless. I can still function with cramps and diarrhea

Stomach cramps and diarrhea.



When my headaches are at their worst I literally feel like stabbing myself in the eye with an axe would feel better.
