Well those back bends hurt and I am not going to turn into a gymnist. I'm going to do a different therapist and them tell them not to agrrivate my neck and shoulder to cause a splitting headache. I'm not opposed to PT I just don't trust them much.
I had terrible headaches back in Dec. and Jan.2008-2009. So when I get one I am the gummpiest person in the northwest USA.
You made a great point in saying "My pain is really bad at all hours but my ability to cope with it is directly related to my energy level." It's something I think about all the time but never have really put into words....I have an 8 month old daughter and I can deal with her "baby-ness" (Read:crying, fussing, needy tendencies etc) when I am well and not already run down, but when I am already exhausted and in pain it makes it so much worse and I find that my patience is nearly non-existent!
So...the same applies with head pain, if you are generally less depressed, have more energy, are as rested as possible, it makes it "easier" to deal with the pain.
