Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I am sorry you are having these headaches.

Dr. David :

these headaches can be from several causes.

Dr. David :

sinus infection or severe sinus inflammation called sinusitis can cause severe headaches and dizziness and pain behind the eyes as well.

Dr. David :

antibiotic therapy and steroid therapy and steroid nasal sprays can help decrease inflammation in the sinuses

JACUSTOMER-mrkp93mt- :

Thank you for responding, should I worry about the stabbing pains in my head or could it be connected?

Dr. David :

the stabbing pain could be related to the bad headaches.

Dr. David :

do you have sinus congestion or stuffy or runny nose?

Dr. David :

your headaches could also be migraine headaches or food allergy headaches

Dr. David :

or caffeine withdraw headaches if you stopped drinking coffee or caffeine drinks.

Dr. David :

so many issues can cause headaches.

Dr. David :

with new headaches it is always a good idea to see your GP doctor and get a full examination and evaluation to find out what is causing the headaches.

JACUSTOMER-mrkp93mt- :

I dont have a stuffy nose, ive recently had a sickness and diarrhoea bug. I have cut out caffiene to help with bladder issues

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

cutting out that caffeine.

Dr. David :

could be causing your headaches now.

Dr. David :

recent sickness and diarrhea can cause dehydration and that can cause headaches as well

Dr. David :

you might need to drink more fluids and juice and gadorade to help bring up your fluid levels and replace fluids.

Dr. David :

I hope your diarrhea is better.

Dr. David :

you might need Imodium to help stop diarrhea.

Dr. David :

caffeine withdraw headaches can take some times to get better.

Dr. David :

sometimes a few weeks.

JACUSTOMER-mrkp93mt- :

Thanks for your help, you have my mind at ease

Dr. David :

thanks.
