What kind of headaches are you experiencing: tension headaches or migraines? If they are migraines, do you have visual disturbances with them at all?

Three days is a mighty long time to have a headache for.

If this is a regular thing for you every month, I'd suggest filling your healthcare provider in on this. It may be you need a different pill, and/or your doctor can prescribe you something to help you deal with or prevent those headaches.

okay so ive had this headache for about 5 or 6 days now, usually they aren't this long but my mum said she's been having a lot of headaches recently as well so it could just be an illness, but im going to see my gp on monday just in case.
