    • There is a topic on here called 'Difficulty finding words sometimes' I highly recommend you read it, might make you feel a bit better, and less frightened of making mistakes while talking,  because one of the great things about the English language is there is so many different ways to say things, you can just take a scenic route instead.
    • Krislwal, are you still drinking lots? Dehydration is a well known cause of headaches.
    • I remember a time in my recovery that my words would jumble,or my words didn’t match my thoughts. I humiliated myself on several occasions with sales clerks and such. It is really frustrating. I seldom have a problem now unless I’m very tired or upset. 
    • I definitely get headaches and dizziness but anxiety causes alot of it for me.  I'm my own worst enemy sometimes.  The last three days here in CT, USA we had a snow storm and I swear the barametric pressure caused my head to hurt more than usual.  I went to accupuncture today so it helped a bit and I also took this Drinkable Magnesium called Calm but it's so hard not to dwell on whether or not there is something someone is missing.  My neurologist told me that I have migraines and tension headaches from stress more than likely.  I go to my primary next week so I'm going to see what he thinks.  Oh..... and I get nauseous with my headaches lately and don't want to really eat.  Usually happens around dinner time and only has been for the 3 days which is weird.  Anyways, thanks for all your advice.  I appreciate it.
    • Hi   To pick up on what Skippy said, you can get rebound headaches even with over- the-counter painkillers like paracetamol (Tylenol) if you are taking them often over a long period. So it's probably worth trying to rule this out first, with the help of your doc if you aren't able to cut down on the Tylenol.   As to what's normal, who knows? I'm 2 years out and still get frequent headaches but luckily they are generally low level and I can get away with only using paracetamol occasionally when I have a more severe one. I hope you get it sorted. Xx
