Hi, i have suffered with chronic neck and facial one sided pain for over 40 years. I have tried a variety of meds , accupuncture, physical therapy with limited success. I am wondering if anyone has tried the TENS unit or or in home CES (cranial electrotherapy stimulation). My official diagnosis is atypical facial and neck pain due to anxiety and depression. Please let me know if you have tried these. Thanks,

My Mom was suffering from Migraine since I was born. The pain and Agony i cant describe here through which she had gone for years. She tried everything but they give temporary relief no cure.
Then some one suggested Reiki Healing, Sceptically She tried. Surprisingly she got instant relief. For Nine month she has taken Reiki from a Reiki Grand Master and now she is completely cured from Migraine.
she not only got cured but her energy level has also increased which was obvious to everyone.
We are grateful to the Reiki grand Master, Parul. She can be contacted through her website ********

had to remove website as it promoted services for payment.

Welcome to the forum.

I have tried the methods either of you have mentioned.

However, BJ, I have the diagnosis you mentioned. I am on a combo of meds for this and complex migraines.

I use mindfulness and meditation to relieve stress and anxiety. After some practice it works very well for most people.

Meditation is not always about sitting and clinging bells, oming etc..
there are many ways to meditate, a person has to fine the way that works for them. In the end, it is about relaxing the body, being in the now, not worrying about the future. Finding peace in today.

This in turn, reduces pain.

I was diagnosed with migraines. The doctor said I have had them since I was young. Well I don't remember that . Ur he said well you wouldn't because migraines cause lost of memory. In 2009 I was diagnosed with fibromyaglia. It got worse over the years and the more I think about it i use to put a heating pad on the back of my neck and on my head. In 2012 I had a fall if which I fractured my back and cause sacrum problems with a nerve. Fractured my tail bone. I just iced my back that night and went to work the next day. Need mind you I was already on pain pills but felt pain in my back. Just thought it was muscular . I was going threw a bad divorce and kept going cause I had bills. A year later when I finally got diagnosed with my back. And whipped my neck. Don't remember hitting my head on the stairs. This occurred in my basement. Then I was diagnose w post concussion syndrome and now PTSD. So I am on a lot of meds. But I get migraine every day . Since then from the fall my fibro got intensely worse. So for my migraines I take topamax daily. Sumatrphan and diflocen sodium if needed. Well the sumatrpban works well but the insurance only covers 9 pills a month. I wish I could take them every day. I have had nerve block shots and botox shots for a year until the last nerve blocks gave me three bald spots on back if my head. So in due time my primary told me to go to a radiology place to have my nerves reset. It is sulllse to lessen your migraines. They place a catheter up both nostrils and put lidacaine on them. It was a difficult procedure for me as I have anxiety . I get so depressed because of all my pain. I don't like taking antidepressants because they make me tired and bring me down. I take xanax and that helps to level me out more. I have sleep problems and have to take three at night 0.5mg each. And another during day if needed. Well k need more then that but it also helps my migraine. It has been two weeks since I had procedure done. The first day I smelled better heard better but my anxiety was everywhere and is. But then again I just started depakote which is suppose ty help migraines but makes very nervous and can t sleep . But they are red and I am allergic to red dye as it makes me hyper . Going to see doc tomorrow about my meds. But I have tried everything . The boss procedure helps a bit. I now don't wake up in morning with migraines. Now they start mid afternoon and last all day still. Going to get docs opinion tomorrow. And go over meds. Have u ever thought u may have fibro? As they can go hand n hand....but trust me I know the pain. I have to hold the top of my head sometimes just to have a conversation. I hope u will get better....or some type of relief!!
