A search term today was “are headaches bad after a stroke?” Are headaches ever good? I had a hell of a battle with headaches after my stroke. They were unlike anything that I’ve ever experienced in my life. They would last for several days and make me throw up. But I lucked out and won no other physical pain from the stroke other than the headaches. I’ve had migraines all of my life and the pain is BAD. The pain is so bad I used to think “something must be wrong up there.” Ummmmmm. Although my stroke was caused by a blood clot that formed somewhere else in the body – no one knows where. So maybe nothing was wrong “up there.” Maybe something was, no one f’ing knows. Anyway, these terrible headaches that I got after the stroke never amounted to more than – just a migraine. I was terrified after the stroke and everyone around me was terrified so I went to the ER a lot. I had LOTS of CT scans to make sure these headaches weren’t anything more serious – like another stroke. They never were. What has helped my headaches the most is drinking Kangen water and eliminating dairy. (Research on Kangen water here) This is my experience. If you’re getting a lot of headaches – have your head checked out. There might be something wrong up there.
