Hello all,

I have been suffering from this awful headache for a month now.

The symptoms are as follows: Headache behind the eyes, Constant Nausea, Intermittent Vertigo, Total Lethargy, Slight Confusion, Muscle Pain (neck and shoulders).

I have tried taking: Maxalt, 800mg Motrin, Phenergan and a Zpak

In the past I have been diagnosed with:
Mixed Migraine Syndrome
Allergies
TMJ

I can't get into see my Dr or even into the clinic. I was sent to Urgent Care who didn't know what it was - they gave me a Zpak because my symptoms sounded like a sinus infection. I have exhausted all of my usual tricks and migraine meds and no relief. My problem is that next week I get on a plane to move to Europe.... I DO NOT want to fly with this thing and my only other choice is to go back to Urgent Care and ask them for something else....I can guarantee you they are NOT going to help...So, before I face a long, long 24 hours of travel I need to break this on my own -even just until I am settled at my next base and can get into see a Dr.

Can anyone help?

Have you tired a cranial massage, with a registered massage therapist. I had been having weird migrains for 6 weeks, no meds worked and neither did the chiropractor, but the cranial massage worked great. I did have a headache still for 24 hrs but then after that it was gone and so were my migrains. I also suffer from neck and shoulder pain, and TMJ which all 3 contribute to migrains. The only sympton I have never experienced is the vertigo, but have had all your other symptons with migrains. I have had migrains for 35 yrs., the chiropractor helped a lot for the first 30 yrs, then i found cranial massage, which was cheaper and a much faster result. I hope this helps you, good luck,
