I'm am also new to this board, i just found it. I have been suffering from migarines for about 15 years now. I an how 26 - female.
I myself experience several different types of migraines but the most extreme have to do with my menstral cycle where i can have major pain for upwards of 2 to 3 days.
What i have experienced in the past 4 or 5 years with my migraines is major tension in my neck. Sometimes so bad as it hurts too much to even try and lift my head. My doc is not very helpful ( i know i need a new one) she just prescribes my accute relief medication (Zomig - has anyone tried it??) and that's about it and says there is not much else she can do.
What i'm wondering is if anyone else can relate to the extreme neck pain that i am experiencing?
Also, i have been told that birth control pills can contribute to migraines, i'm considering going off the pill to see if this may help.
Any suggestions or information anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
