yes, i've had multiple mri's and ct scans in my 46 year quest for answers to severe migraine. having been reading another wonderful forum JUST for migraineurs for 17 years, i know that everyone has pain in different parts of their heads.
too often, neuros think migraine has to be just one-sided. not true. mine started one-sided, all those years ago, then went to the other side, and now the pain is all over my head and quite unpredictible.
sometimes it's burning in the entire back of my head, sometimes stabbing pains in the top. a mri can be useful for ruling out other disorders, but usually nothing shows that's out of the ordinary. how can this be????we ask, when the pain is so awful? nobody knows; it just is. unfortunately.
have you had other tests? don't give up. go to a neurologist if you haven't already. they tend to be arrogant and think throwing a drug at you will make you go away. if you get someone like this, change doctors asap. imho. dianne
