I have occipital neuralgia involves nerves in back of head that come up over head. I just have to go to bed when I get a headache like that. Have fibro and arthritis also which I take gabbapentin and cymbalta for. Usual dose of cymbalta is one 60mg capsule per day. My neuralogist increased my cymbalta to two a day one in the morning and one in the evening stating that cymbalta has been found to help with headaches and it really helps my headaches. Also I have found when I have a headache that if I sleep on a flat ice bag that helps to numb it so I can fall asleep. It's worth a try and I also have chronic migraines.
