Hi All. I am 24 years old and have been suffering from the same type of headaches for over 5 years now.
To give you an idea of the type of headaches I am having, here are the symptoms:
-daily pain
-moderate to severe pain
-begins in the back of my head
-sometimes will radiate and focus on one side
-difficulty concentrating
I have tried just about everything there is out there. When over the counter pain killers were not helping alleviate the pain, I went to see my doctor. I was given antidepressants, pills to help me sleep, muscle relaxers, etc. They seemed to help for a while, but they too would stop working. I have had numerous blood draws done as well as CT scans.
I have also tried accupuncture and regular visits to a chiropractor. NOTHING HELPS ANYMORE.
I just got married and I should be the happiest I have ever been,  but my headaches are making it hard to enjoy life.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. I will try ANYTHING!

Hi Volley, I understand what your going through. I have daily chronic migraines...they are always different in intensitiy. I've been on anit depressants, anti seizure meds, muscle relaxers...Finally a neurologist is sending me to UVA in Charlottesville Va to have iv DHE treatments for my migraines so that hopefully it will break the cycle. I live in Tennessee, and will be traveling 6 hours to Charlottesville to hopefully get some pain relief and who knows some answers as to why I have at least 4-5 migraines a week!! I hope you too find some relief!

What I learnd from my experience( I have migraines for about 12 years) is that the key of preventing headaches is taking your medication on time and avoiding your migraine triggers. My migraine also starts in the back of my head (sometimes in neck or shoulder first), andwhen I sence that, I take my medication. But if I take my medication when migraine has fully developed, it doesn't help me much. (I use excedrin).

It sounds from the info you provided like tension induced migraine pain.  This is tough to treat because the idea is to get you to become more relaxed, and you may feel relaxed, or "happy" but for some reason your body is tense.  My belief is that some are just predisposed to tension.  For your worst days, I would recommend hot showers, or a bag of peas wrapped in a towel.  This always helps even a little.  There are a lot of prophylactics out there and for you it may become tricky because of the type.  Would you provide the different preventatives you have tried and maybe I can provide you with some further insight?  I know from experience some meds will increase tension...

Have you tried Clonazepam?  This is a long acting anti-siezure, muscle relaxer, etc. that can sometimes really help in reducing tension.  This medication does run the risk of dependency, but I find it's not as severe as others.  I believe this is due to the long half-life of the medication.

Give me further information and I'll try and provide more insight.

take care.

I can relate to where you're at. I've suffered from severe Migrane headaches for well over 10 years. I had been to 6 different Neurologists and each one of them had given me different prevention pills to try and keep the headaches away but nothing worked and I was tired of putting all that medication in my body. Well, one day at work I was talking to a co-worker who had suffered for a long time from Migranes as well and had come across this all natural juice called. She had tried it, and after just a few short months was completely headache free. I was pretty hesitant at first myself, but at this point, I had sufferered for so long, that I figured I had nothing to lose. This juice comes from a desert cactus in Arizona and Mexico. Basically, what you do is start with a loading dose for 1 month which is 3 to 6 ounces a day just to get the toxins out of your body. I started to feel a lot better after just a few days and after a month on the juice, I felt like a totally new person! It has many more great health benefits too! It also helps with inflamation, reduces swelling in joints and muscles, helps with allergies, reduces stress, gives you more energy,and more. And the best part, you have a 60 day money back guarantee. If you don't like it, or you don't get results, you get your money back, no questions asked, it's that simple! I was impressed with the company so much, that I decided to become an affiliate and start selling it and telling people about it myself.
I have edited your post to remove the web addy and would refer you to the forum rules about advertising - Ann
