What to do about a perpetual headache on shrooms??
    #1914684 - 09/14/03 05:43 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Seriously, OUCH!  :frown:  Every time that I shroom I get a terrible headache during the trip and up to 24 hours afterward.  After the trip it seems to be the very worst.  Even massive doses of advil do little to abate that monster. 

I'm sorta desperate for a remedy, since this remains the one black point of all my trips, and it is even bad enough to make the act of tripping very unenjoyable at times. 

So does anyone else get this tripping headache?  I guess I can try taking advil or another pain killer during my trip when the headache starts, but I'm scared it might affect the trip in some way. 

*sigh*  So is this a necessary evil I have to endure?  I always make sure that I drink alot of water while tripping, so I know I'm not dehydrated or anything. 

Any help will be sooo appreciated!  :tongue:

ouch! sounds like it could be a reaction you have to the magic in the mushies.

Please dont quote me on that one, because I am not entirely sure of this.    I just dont know of a cure, im sorry :frown:

Everytime i drink at the river i get a massive headache.

As for tripping I havent experienced that but I have seen people go through it.

I don't think its a physical reaction...or it could be, but Kevin gets it bad too every time.  I hope that there's not something up with my mushies.  :confused:  I know the person who grew them very well, and she is very meticulous with their care and drying, etc. 

This is a long stretch, but I wonder if it is the strain.  Next time I should try a different strain and see what happens.

Puerto Rican...its the only strain I've ever tried, so next time I'll experiment with some of the other ones I've come across and see if that helps. I wouldn't think that the strain would be a big factor though...

My friend is the same way... get's head splitting head aches all the time when he shrooms. I don't know what he does to make himself feel better though. I'll ask him for you.

Try taking a long, hot bath. Always work for me when I have headaches.

I never had a headache that wasn't cured by a drink of water. Apples are good too

Last time I tripped, about a month ago....the shrooms wore off for me to go to sleep at about 2....and I later woke up at about 4 in the morning with quite possibly the worst headache I have ever had. I went and took some motrin, but ended up throwing them up. I took a very long hot shower after that and thought I felt better, but then I started throwing up again...more like dry heaving really, didn't really have anything left in me. So I took another shower after that and went back to sleep. Woke up the next morning and I felt fine.

The shower really helped both times. I'm not really sure it was the shrooms, it could have just been a real bad migraine which I get every once in a while.

It sounds to me like you are a migraine sufferer whos headaches are potentiated by these situations. There are a great many biochemical processes that are beyond our understanding and indeed beyond the understanding of our medical community, so in the time that it takes you to think of a reasonable answer, you could have already rolled yourself a funky indica log and smoked the bugger out. (That is my solution to all migraines, and it works.) You also eventually have to learn that it is a price you will have to pay for this experience and bear it and go about your business as normal. This is important- to learn to let the pain run its course. Anyway- try excedrin- it's proven to me to be occasionaly very beneficial in a pinch where advil, naproxin, and BC powder does not. And take whatever pain is left and accept it.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I've never suffered a migraine before, so I'm not sure what they feel like. Maybe my 'headache' after tripping really is a migraine.

Well, for next month when I trip, I will be creating optimum conditions. Drinking extra water three days before, balanced meals, great sleep, eating well two hours before tripping. Hopefully a combination of everything will help me out.

thanks guys,

yeah let us know how the next one goes :smile:

also, I don't think this is even possible, but make sure you're not "willing" the headache into existence.. like I can imagine how if I were sitting here on shrooms I could be like "argh this HEADACHE!" and just imaging extreme pain and agony in my head and could see how the perception of a headache could be achieved by pure thought.. ha but I doubt this is the case :wink: just some sober ranting from me...

Actually, Strumpling, I considered that myself!  The only problem with that theory is that I still had a monster headache 24 hours after tripping.  Maybe I 'willed' it into being after tripping and it lasted???  :confused:

We'll see how the next trip goes for me!  :grin: :smile: :smile:

nah 24 hours after means its real :wink:

If it happens again, if you were concerned you could see a doctor and tell him "hey I consumed some psychedelic mushrooms and then this headache came up.... do you think there's a connection, and regardless of whether or not there is or isn't a connection, how do I get rid of it?!"

i suggest: drink quite a bit of water, get some minerals and vitamins, especially IRON in you, and try to get as much sleep as possible. I find that taking mushrooms at like, 10 or so, and not sleeping till 4, and waking up at 10 again gives me a headache, but taking mushies earlier on, or waking up quite a bit later (i go for 10 hours of sleep) definitely helps me

I get headaches too... but also I dont eat or drink for 12 hours which could be a culprit. I will try to load up on some water next time.

ding ding ding!

you're most likely experiencing some degree
of dehydration.

when you consume mushrooms you're really
taxing your body and your liver.

you'll require more water than you normally do
so be sure to drink lots before during and after
all excursions.

water = k3y
