Hi, all.  New to this web site.  I've had neck pain, headaches, & migraines for years.  It started when I was about 16, now I'm 36.
I'm sure there's something wrong with my neck, although it doesn't show on xrays or an MRI.  I just started seeing a pain mgt doctor who thinks most of my neck pain is nerve-related (this causes many headaches).  I'm gonna try botox injections tomorrow because occipital nerve block injections and facet joint injections didn't work.
Has anyone else had this type of problem?  What have you tried to stop the pain/headaches?
I currently take 150 mg atenolol daily, but it's not so helpful anymore.  I did pretty great on atenolol (50mg) for a few years, but I guess it's not as effective for me.  Sometimes I can't totally kick the migraines with Amerge or Imitrex.  Amerge used to work really well for me.

God has a plan for me.

Hi There,

I to suffer from headaches, migraine and bad neck pain on a daily basis. I also find that the panadiene-forte(paracetamol/codiene) isn't effective anymore because I have been taking it for years. I have tried a lot of other drugs that haven't worked. I must say that Nurofen Plus helps with the pain. I don't know whether you have that drug in your country( I'm in Australia). It is an anti-inflammatory. Maybe give those type of drugs a go. I have had MRI's though and I have herniated disc all down my neck and back and degeneration in the disc's. I wish I could have something permanetly done to fix this problem.

Good Luck
