Yes...it's detox. Hang in there because your body is getting an opportunity to do some deep cleaning.

It should go away after awhile.
Unless you're really toxic, in which case you'll have a constant headache for a month or two.

Dread head, did you used to consume a lot of products with caffeine? Usually this is the main reason for the massive headaches during detox. There are other causes, but caffeine is the biggee.
As everyone already said, keep hanging in there. Increase your water intake too.
It usually helps me to place a cool or cold wet cloth over my eyes & head. :) Have a big bowl or bucket of water with ice by you & dip in the cloth whenever you need to re-cool it. Squeeze out excess water. The headache either goes away or lessens in about 30 mins. to an hour.

i really haven't had caffeine in about 2 months. it is starting to go away. i think the problem is that i am going through nicitine withdraws. thans for your support

Yes, nicotine would cause that if you consume nicotine. Personally I've never smoked, so that's just hearsay. Caffeine is the next culprit, followed closely by Monosodium Glutamate.
I call them the Harrowing Headstoppers. Because having cute caricatures of your nemesis makes it easier when the going gets rough.

Definitely detox. Keep yourself hydrated. Take a bath with some lavendar essential oil. Rub some lavendar oil on your temples. Rest. DO NOT TAKE any meds to alleviate the headache. It WILL go away!
I've heard some people say an enema will stop a headache. I personally don't have any experience with that though.
I hope you're feeling better!

I did a juice/water fast (first 4 days I juiced veggies, then the next 10 I went to water because it felt good). I think I broke my fast properly, with broth and juice and a little yogurt for 3 days. I went 100% raw next and have been doing that for 3 days. This morning I woke up with a terrible headache. I did have a caffiene headache on days 2/3 of my fast, but I thought I was WAY past that.
