Default headache?

I get most of my pain in neck, shoulder blades, base of skull...real tender there.
So of course I get horrendous headaches too.

was wondering if anyone else does and what do you do for it.

Default Re: headache?

Hi Lainey,

I know this is an old post but i am just reading it and wanted to share with you. I have horrible migraines that I deal with on a daily basis, it never goes away only reduces in severity some days. I have been dealing with this for about two years now. The issue is still being looked into by my neurologist I have had two MRIs that showed like 20 brain lesions. I have been told they are likely caused by the chronic headaches, but it is not directly linked to the fibro from what I understand. I completley know how horrible this is and I am sorry to hear you are having this problem. It really is difficult to cope with especially with all the other fibro symptoms.

Anyways, I have been on like 10 different meds to try to control the migraines without success, and now I am on pain killers only for the pain. I take oxycodone which takes the edge off but even this does not completely take it away of course it only supresses the problem. I am sorry that I don't have advice. I am still searching for a better solution than pain meds. Just wanted to let you know I am dealing with this as well if you need a friend to talk to.

Keep pushing to be your own advocate and keep praying for answers. I am trying to do the same. Some days feel impossible and unbearable. If you find anything that helps let me know. I am desperate also. "( Sometimes I go to the hospital when it is really bad and they give me an IV with a steroid of some sort to reduce the swelling I guess and a pain med. Not sure if yours are this bad, but if they are this reduces it a little bit.

thoughts and prayers with you tonight. Hopefully you still get this post cause it was an older one!

Lynds

I don't read that the poster is talking about migraines....I've never had one. And get no more headaches...all my headaches in my early life were sinus related headaches, as I remember.

Google: headaches and grape seed extract or headaches and pycnogenol

I've been on these two OPC's for going on 20 yrs.... these two could help migraines as well...

I was indeed not referring to migraines. Although I have a hx of having classic migraines, these headaches are not that.

Default Re: headache?

When I was working full time, I used to get horrible headaches with pain in the same areas. My primary sent me to a neurologist and we determined that most of the headaches and pain were a combination of tensing up in response to overall fibro pain and poor posture/ergonomics at my desk. I saw a physical therapist to learn some exercises for stretching and relaxing the muscles in that area and was prescribed Baclofen, which treats muscle pain, stiffness, and spasms. I didn't have to take the medication once I got better at the exercises, paid more attention to my posture, and took more frequent breaks to stretch. A warm rice bag on the area also helped. You might ask your doc if this is a possibility.
