Headaches from the Flu
Print this pagePrint this page    Email this pageEmail this page
As if the flu weren't enough of a headache, a headache is often another symptom of the flu. Although this isn't always the case, some flu medications can actually make your headache worse. Consult your doctor to find out if there's any connection between your headache and your flu treatment.
Bright Isn't Alright
At the onset of the flu, keep in mind that a headache is a likely symptom. It is best to get as much rest as you can. Draw the blinds and dim the lights in your house and avoid watching television. Curl up in bed and play some soothing music.
