[Help] I'm sick!

  1. So I started feeling ill at around 8 o'clock last night, I had a bad migraine. I thought nothing of it, I get headaches all the time, but this is the worst headache I have ever had. No joke. Imagine your heart has been placed inside your brain, and every-time it beats you experience a searing sensation along with a throb around the proximity of your skull.

    I then took two Ibuprofen and went to sleep at around 9:30.

    I wake up at 2:15, My head is borderline about to explode. I go wet a rag place it on my forehead and endure the pain for around an hour before falling into a fitful sleep.

    I wake up again in pain, and it is 5:30. I get up for school at 5:30. My dad walks into my room and he can obviously tell that something is wrong. Now my dad and I never fight, except in school related matters, such as being absent. Normally I'd say, "Oh I feel so bad, let me stay home." and he'd say "Be a man, tough it out."

    All I say this morning, well, more of a croak then actually speaking. "My head, it hurts.." He then brought be some medicine and said to get some rest. I can't rest of course, my head hurts too bad, it feels as if my skull is splitting open. I can't have my covers on because its too stuffy, yet I take them off and its freezing.

    I go to my mom and she looks at me and says, "Come here let me feel your forehead."
    "Son your burning up! Go grab a thermometer."

    I grab the thermometer and my temperature is 101.6! No wonder I feel so bad!

    So, EMC, what should I do to feel better? Because I feel terrible.

    TL;DR I feel bad, make me feel better!
  2. I'd say take some ibuprofen (like advil or motrin). It will help with a fever, and it's an anti-inflamatory, so it might be the best thing for your headache also. Drink plenty of fluids and try to stay in bed! Also, feel better soon :D

  3. I'd suggest seeing a doctor, instead of asking strangers for medical advice.
    (But margaritte's advice is good too)
  4. That really made me laugh! :)
    I'm going in an hour or so!
  5. If you need to laugh more

  6. Well if the headache is still present try to keep your eyes away from the computer screen for a while.

  8. [OffTopic]Because of a brand name doesn't mean that its different from say ASDA or somewhere (Supermarkets) as they are highly likely to contain the same things.[/OffTopic]

    And back on topic get well!
  9. Well, nfell, people don't always know what "ibuprofen" is, so it's better to list brand names, I think, because most people have probably heard of Advil or Motrin.
  10. I havn't xD Might be because im UK, but now I see your point. Sorry! xx
  11. Fevers of over 101 are very dangerous to your health. I have received a long scolding session from the doctor before for putting off seeking medical attention. Make sure you drink plenty of WATER...not juice or soda or milk, etc...Your headache is also a sign of this dehydration...

    Please go see a doctor asap. Or at least go get actual fever reducers along with your ibuprofen. You don't wanna end up in the hospital for two days like I was just for putting it off.

  14. I get chronic migraines myself. Lately, I've been getting 2 or 3 a week - which is not normal. But, I've been under some heavy stress lately.

    However, I can usually "work through" my migraines - I generally just get a visual aura. It's similar to having just looked at a bright light, only it takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to go away. Following that, I generally have an upset stomach and feel light headed. My head doesn't usually throb, but it can.

    Try a can of soda. Not from a bottle or tap, but out of an aluminum can. Someone told me about this a long time ago, and it actually helps. It could just be a placebo, but I'm going to guess there is a reaction with the aluminum in the can :D. It sounds legit, anyway.
  15. Well, it's a well-known fact that frequency of migraines in people who play EMC is linked to the health of the economy, so I'd blame Aikar if I were you.

  16. To add to that make sure that the soda is diet soda. Like Diet coke or a diet Mt. dew. Really sugar and caffeine are the enemy. Try to avoid them as much as possible. Especially caffeine.
  17. WATER!!!!! He has a fever....

  18. WATER! IT HAS NO SUGAR!! lol!

    And aluminum wont have a reaction with the body or the liquid because guess what? It wouldn't be legal to sell!
  19. Chew on a piece of aluminum and then tell me it has no reaction.

  20. Well of course he needs fluids in general to flush out whatever bacteria or infection that happens to rest inside of him but I was building on bonzd's statement. :)
