Headache Poetry: The Unknown Mystery Headache

In the fall of 2006 the NHF’s Headache Education and Support Group facilitators invited their attendees to submit headache-related poetry. Because interest in this project grew, it was opened up to all who visit the NHF’s web site, as well as those who read NHF HeadLines.

The NHF received a variety of headache-related submissions. We have selected poems, limericks and verse that are relatable to those who suffer with this disease.

We extend our sincere thanks to all who submitted their work.

Headaches are really bad.
They make me really sad.

Without notice, it shoots out pain.
It makes me want to go insane.

My body is weak and I almost fall.
I’m numb everywhere and can’t stand it at all.

It hurts to move, it hurts to read
I usually am not able to get much sleep.

Nothing helps it and no one cares.

They are clueless and pretend it’s not there.
No one will bother to figure what’s wrong.
So, instead I continue to suffer on.
