I have been having Theses  FIRE like...  headaches, although I shun almost to call them a head ache
they are not even close to that. and I get migrains,  so I know what head aches are.
 
I wanted to let you know, I have been having a lot of pain this week,    My  Message Therapist told mr to get some ice on my "Heated head";after she worked on neck & head,  my head was letting off some incredible Heat ( something about spinal fuild having too much lactic acid.?)  Prob due to Spinal Chord being compressed? 
  .. my head feels like it is on Fire litterally, not your usual headache or pain/ ache. As  well as lower back  Burning pain  right in the center , which indicates to me its  spine.   I called my doctors yesterday afternoon, when I was  having trouble with the pain,  her secretary said she has no openings until next week,  I was told get to Emergency if i cant take the pain or it gets worse
Im  thinking of going to Hospital instead.  My body is also having trouble regulating my body temp, I go from cold chills to being so HOT I think IM going to combust. and have had confusion along with it .  ( not that the  EMERG docs  will know what to do, but maybe they  do understand nurology ,
I dont just want a pain killer to mask the pain,..  my  head is ON Fire inside... ,
(Is it because of something wrong with spinal fuild, I'd say let's find out .....  get it  regulated to normal  somehow)
 
I spoke with a Nurse last night at my workplace , who had  had  injury to neck from car accident,  she had same type symptoms years ago.. and said  her regular docs  did not understand
it wasnt till she saw the  Nurologist, who explained to her  a nerve was being compressed, and  normal functions where  being  hindered...
 
 
 
 
Yesterday while I was being treated at Message therapy  
( I have DDD, Spinal Stenosis,L4L5 and above... to mid back  osteo arthristis... Slipped disc, buldging,... )//   severe pain started Aug 3 rd, 2007
But  have had  back problems before in 2003- 2004  not knowing the full diagnosis,   I did not have medical coverage then so I did not ahve any THERAPIES to help with PAIN.
I was onVIOXX ..... , which  I had horrible side effects on  then  Bextra , which  aliveated pain, I could function & work, 
 
 
BUT now...     Im NOT doign well, even my sight is off
when I type I have to reread what I typed,  IM  mixing up letters  a lot...
 
I just want help,  ADVICE
and this FIRE to go away in my head

hi GRAMPS
 
re:  neurologist
My General Prac  DR has referred me
I will have to go to the city for taht appointment  & I dont get to choose who I see...
its not like we ahve a lot of them in this province...
 
 
Im praying  it will be a good one...
a WONDERFUL  Doctor FULl of WISDOM
 
today- I left work early  to come home & ICE my  back/ and neck/ head
it helps to cool of that burning
you can actually FEEl teh heat coming from my  back side...
like I"ve turned into a  EASY BAKE
ha tongue
I know not funny
I guess my brains affected now
 
 
 
this pain reminds me a little of   the BURNING I got when I ahd a MIgrain & used IMITRX?  ring any nbells ? for people
 
I cant use that  becasue my migrains where diagnosed as STROKE LIKE...
and 
in taking amitrypiline   to prevent them
I gained  20 pounds.. and was not able to function in the morning at work
 
 
for years I didnt get any migrains at alll
 
 
this summer
they started up again
but this BURNIGN HEAD ACHE is NOT like  the MIGRAINS

when I get a MIGRAIN
I first see  tin foil  zig zags, I feel "off" STUPID... DOH
usually one eye goes blind sometimes  my left arm goes numb
or  tingly at fingers first then  goes up teh arm
 
 
sometimes I GET a HEAD ACHE
sometimes  after the AURA,, tehre nothing
espically if I ahve been able to take a  MIGRAIN ADVIL LIQUID GEL CAP right away
 
or now I ahve to take Robaxacet 
cause if Im on Celebrex I cant take any ADvil or ASPRIN type products

Wow Shelter your headaches sound alot like mine.
 
Mine are a result of m car accident 2 years ago though. For the first year I was told that it was a migrane by the neurologist. I didn't buy it, nope not one bit.
 
I was finally referred to a neurosurgeon who felt they were referred pain from by neck and chronic myofascial syndrome.
 
I did get them to lessen some by going through craniosacral therapy. Of course it didn't make them go away but it certainly helped some.
 
Now I thought when I had the ablations that would get rid of it. But it only managed to get rid of it on the right side. My left side is now feeling worse.
Hi   Unless there are differnt kinds of MIgrains, and   for  over 27 years    I had  ONE KIND....
The Pressure at the abck of skull.. base of   skull across like size of ones fist...
BURNING PAIN, like FIRE  
reminds me a llittle   of when I sued to take IMITREX to stop teh head ache..
my whole head would feel this  sudden wave of  HEAT/ FIre.. burnign sensation over it for a time,  my hands & feet also  very sensitive & HURT  with hot water,
BUT....
this time taht  FIRE  is not a sensation...
its different... and I will certaininly be mentioning it to my doctor.
