Hi Chartreux: I have been a patient at a Headache and Pain Relief Centre for a few years. He said I have combination headaches. I read a book about
Headaches and what seems to be mine are called Cervicogenic Headaches. pain is at the base of my skull and up the middle of the back of my head and on both sides at the very top - sometimes into my forehead. I do sometimes get horrible pain in my left eye. I had a couple migraines many years ago. I was on birth control then. I had an aura and then headache. Thought I was going crazy. It was my Mom that told me they were migraines. The headaches are not at all like the migraines that I had. I think Neuralgia, that a Dentist at a Hospital diagnosed is likely correct. It is pain in my upper gums - inside and jaw pain. My Pain Doctor is wonderful at listening. I write notes when I see him. He makes notes on my file, if warranted. I know that windy days are a problem. I hate cold weather. I go through the same thing every day. I do get relief now when I go to bed and fall asleep. I need to take many rest breaks to achieve tasks and chores. I have not given up. Thanks so much for your suggestions.
Have read a number of posts tonight. FYI - I am in Canada and it appears that many or most are in U.S. Our health care systems are different. Our Family Physicians refer you to Specialists when needed and you are not necessarily accepted as a patient. The Specialist may be just working as a Consultant for the FP.
