I have had headaches bilateral temples for ten years. This headache has been steady for two years and horrible for one year. I can't get much sleep. I have been treated for tmj and am now being followed by a natural pain relief center. Having a routine is important which is what I am working on now since I wasn't sleeping at night. I must be up at eight, outside for half an hour if it's sunny , shower, go for a walk, and do your things for the day. Difficult right now due to the pain and no energy. Diet changes are also what I am doing now, fruit, veg. nut, fish, chicken, turkey,, so no sugar, wheat etc etc. for two weeks. and I am on some natural supplements to increase and produce serotonin. I have just weaned off of Morphine as it wasn't helping anyways and was wreaking havoc on my body.
For my boredom I read, use the laptop, TV, clean house, short shopping, bike, mag. now mind you this is just recently.
Wishing you all headache free days.
Tell me what therapies you have tried. I continue with massage and occ. chiro right now but have done everything that is out there it seems.
