OK so I have constant headaches and they last really long times. Like today, I've had this headache from the moment I got up to now. When I move my head it feels like my brain is moving around. And when I stand up I get super dizzy. Right now I'm taking a pill called Propernol, which originally was for the heart, well I've been taking these pills since the summer before sophomore year in H.S, right now I'm a junior. I'm now on a lower dose then what I've started on because its not good for me to be taking and I'm sick and tired of taking it. Right now I'm on 20mL and I have to take 2 of them a day (8am and 8pm). I've had headaches since 5th grade and got glasses because that's what we thought the reason I was getting the headaches. Now I'm really confused about what's causing them, and I've taken an MRI to find out if anythings wrong up there, there isn't.
So do you guys know what I should do that will help ease my headaches? And by the way I take ibuprofen and Advil (rarely) for them.
And also would you know any reasons for why I'm getting them?

Get the name of the med right next time, it's kind of important. Propranolol is a beta blocker used usually for patients with high blood pressure or heart failure, and one of the main side effects of any anti-hypertensive is dizziness upon changing positions because you are reducing the profusion of blood to your head. DON'T just stop taking them though, you'd have to tell your doctor and then (if he approves) you'd have to slowly get off of them or change to another medication ...just quitting them can be bad juju.0
