Hi i am new to this forum! glad i found it! my story... I started with a cluster headache cycle back at christmas. i got it under control by february but had constant uncomfortable low grade headache on the right side of my head (cluster side) for months after. When i found a new headache specialist here in south florida the end of april he diagnosed me with "hermicrania continua" which is chronic migraine/cluster mix! my neck is affected with these headaches and have been on indomthicin 150mg's for the headaches helps some. I have gotten ocipital nerve block injections twice so far and it helps alot! anyone here have similar condition? I hope all is well and glad i found this site

Hi Anthony,

Welcome to Healing Well. I have Hemicrania Continua and Chronic Migraine. I too benefit from the GONB's (Greater Occipital Nerve Blocks). Sadly I can no longer have Indomethacin (Indocin) as it has damaged my Gastrointestinal tract.

I was put forward for ONSI (Occipital Nerve Stimulator Implant) last December, and have today received a letter from my Primary Care Trust stating that they are going to fund it for me!!!! If you wish to know anything about ONSI please let me know.

take care

Hi Anthony,i also have Hemicrania Continua at present it is very agressive and over the last 3 months have had 2 x GNOB which have failed to have much affect but am really glad you found some relief.At the beginning of October i will see a consultant who will then review treatments.He mentioned a three point nerve injection every three months and various drugs,as the topiramate has failed(am currently being weaned off,THANK GOD!!!!!) and 75mg x3 dailiy of Indomtacin,which does subdue pain for a short while but alas not effective enough!

Hope all contiues well,
Take Care,
Plato
