I m new here been doing some of my own research as I have been having daily headaches for about 6 months. They are a pressure on both sides of my head at times it spread so that its like a cap. some light and sound sensitivity and they do occasionally get sever were I have to go to the urgent care to get the pain knocked down to about a 6 from over a ten, but never goes below a 1-2 I m currently on gabapentin 3 times a day and tizanidine to be take only 1-3 times a day for pain but can only get 2 more refills in the year. I will be starting my third week on these so far no help except to be able to get some sleep. I see a neurologist who seems to be hung up on that its just a neck problem and its going to take time to find the right dosage of meds. I went to a physical therapist and she stated to me that my type of headaches are not treated or help with physical therapy but he did seem to listen to that, I also have some concern as 3 years ago I was diagnoised with stage 3 breast cancer I went though surgery and chemo, radiation. I m currently on medical leave from work as I was missing from 1-3 days a week from work this is very frustrating, and cost factor enters into it as well even though I have insurance I can't afford the copays for all the different things but I want answers so that I can go back to work, or sometimes I wonder if I will ever be able to Thanks for listening.
