Its been 15 years of therapies, pain mgmt. Implant for pain, in and out of e.r. injection therapies and so much more. My daughter may have found a doc to help me with chronic head pain. Diagnosed and treated for migraines and have not progressed one bit, that it can't be a migraine. Hope with me that this new doc will help me rule out either cervicogenic headache or berre-lieou syndrome..I have symptoms of both, so this can't be a migraine. I am so grateful I found this site. This is my first time signing on and so happy that I'm not the only one hurting and striving for getting well. Just feels so wonderful to know I can chat to others in knowing how I feel. Thank you, ans wired

Good morning Ans Wired and I too, would like to welcome you to healing Well's chronic pain forum. As one of the other members said, we are glad that you found us but so sorry that you have to be here.

I know nothing about the two medical conditions you mentioned but will look them up later. You also mentioned you may have found a dr that can help you. Do you have an appt scheduled, if so, when? It would be wonderful if this dr and make a correct diagnosis and help you after what you have been thru the past 15 years I believe is what you said.

Please do come back and let us know how this appt goes. Take care.

Hello Answired, welcome the one place where everyone has walked in the same shoes, in some way or another, we are all chronic pain patients.
I am Kathy/nini53, and I am glad you found this forum, my youngest daughter found the HW for me in March 2011, and I will always be grateful to her for this.  Once I got on the forum, I knew I was home.  No one who is not a cp patient, while they can be compassionate, if you havent been there its sometimes hard to understand.
So welcome, and hope you will find out what is going on with you, thats a big part of the battle isnt it?
Well take care and good luck
