    i know this stuff produces some wacky symptoms, but i have one i've never heard of. my blood pressure is okay; i drink water and do the sea salt/water business and i still have headaches almost constantly.

    HOWEVER, they sometimes start in the middle of the night when i need to urinate. if i ignore the urge, stay in bed and sleep, my head ache reaches migraine level in minutes. sometimes if i get up immediately with the urge, empty my bladder, the heachache will stop or at least decrease.

    if i ignore the urge to void, it can set off a headache that lasts weeks; i do not understand. it is just too weird.

    i no longer tell this symptom to MD's. and my acupuncturist and i do not share a common language well enough for this kind of communication.

    thanks
