i always like to hear opinions , from various medical doctors. So far, scammer medicine that sells things online does not work.

1) my american neighborhood doctors says go take a ( nap , did not work ) , go to a dark room ( that did not work) , take a heache pill ( don't trust it ).

2 ) military herbalist/ acupuncture - states it is due to the neck just come to my clincic when you have it and i will perform the needles on the neck. ( haven't try that yet , but will later) .

3)MY ego and personal experiments i tried : SEx ? ??? that helped gave me temporily relief only; tried bringing the temperature down on my eyes ( using the refrigerator like 1-2minutes ) that helped one time or two times, but after later triggers it didn't worked, so i stopped . Not eating anything after recognizing trigger helped lower the duration ( pain or the migraine ).

So far , i am being lead to it is something that deals with the eyes and the brain. ( obviously) BEcause when i used sex, i fooled my brain a while; and the sensitivity to light hints also about the eyes.

I wonder do you guys smoke or not, and do you wear eye glasses or not ??? and the question i asked.

Well, yes, I wear glasses for reading, I do have distance, but it's not bad enough to make me wear the glasses.
I have tried a cold pack on my neck, sometimes it does give some relief.
I find taking meds, such as Excedrin, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc, does little to help, occasionally Excedrin helps.
I had an MRI, and a catscan, nothing.
My first neuro said I was having pain from my neck and shoulders, causing me not to sleep, then I would have sleep deprivation headaches...he put me on Topamax, which didn't really help.
My 2nd neuro says I am too stressed, have too much anxiety, which in turn causes my neck and shoulders to tense, which causes muscular headaches, he has me taking Wellbutrin, which I think isn't helping, although I always give a med sufficient time for results.
I also have sleep apnea, which in itself can cause headaches, been on CPAP for 7 months now, have not seen a change in the headaches, except they may be worse.
My mother says when I turn 65 they will go away!
My ferritin is very low, and my iron level is too low to suit me, so I am adding iron this week, we will see if this helps.
Per my neuro, I did have physical therapy, 12 sessions, which made my neck and shoulders so much worse, and didn't help the headaches at all, so we agreed, PT is not for me.
I do have peripherial neuropathy, so that could contribute to the pain.
I do get slight relief when I walk the beach, sal***er air is good for you, and there are very few allergens there.
Well, that's my headaches in a nutshell!
We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients...don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum.  If a patient tells you s/h feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
