I have had a migraine for 6 days, help?

Home More advice Nutrition & Fitness

I hurt my back (specifically those wee vertebrae things down my spine) while lifting boxes last Wednesday. I went to the physio and she confirmed what I'd done, gave me some treatment and massage which was great but it left me with a headache which then turned into a migraine. It's very uncomfortable and painful, the pain sits at the base of my skull where my spine joins and it an aching stabbing pain. It's worse when I lift my head too fast or run up/down the stairs and gets very aggravated by the loud music played at my workplace. Sometimes it's so bad that I have to sit down and close my eyes for a minute until it goes away.

It's affecting everything I do and I'm really mad I cannot go to the gym because movement hurts it a lot.

Does anyone know if this is serious at all? How can I get rid of it? Ahhhhhhhh!
