Our expert says:
Try going to a physiotherapist for the headaches – it is often muscle spasm related especially if something like Adcodol works well for it. It makes a huge difference after a treatment or two. Ask her to show you what to do when you get these headaches ( stretches, hot packs etc) as it is too expensive to go to the physio everytime you get the headache. I usually only go back if nothing I try helps! Rather try and avoid certain pain medications like Syndol, Grandpa, Adcodol, Stilpayne etc as this can eventually cause the headaches in the long term. Neurofen does not contain codeine and may be a safer option to use if you don’t have a sensitive stomach or allergies against anti-inflammatories.
