Thanks, coolladyblue ~ This gives me some new leads to follow. I already get physiotherapy treatments every 3 weeks and chiropractic adjustment with "active release" massage every 2 weeks for my neck & shoulders. (Not because I have actually experienced any direct relief for the migraines but because it makes sense that those muscles -- abused in my previous job as an administrative secretary -- could cause referred pain to the sinus area. I've also changed how I sit to read (which I do a LOT of :) by putting my book on a cushion to raise it and rest my arms on. . .
Thanks for taking the time to respond!
Hi - This reply is to "kie" ~
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience! So glad you've gotten a handle on your own headaches. Interestingly enough, it was just after my first child was born that my migraines really became chronic. Seven years later when I was pregnant with my second child, I was virtually migraine-free -- but after my son was born the migraines came back just like before and have continued to the present. However, I do think I'm seeing some slight improvement as I'm having fewer periods now in perimenopause. In my case, hormones seem to be the biggest underlying issue (although I have so very many other triggers), so here's hoping . . .
