Hi and thanks again for more replies. These headaches of mine have been diagnosed as occipital tension headaches. I also have a compressed vertebrae in my neck, and that vertbrae has a bone spur on it. I don't know whether that could be part of the reason or not. I went for almost a month and a half headache free, but when I found out that my husband lost his job, they came back, and he started having them also. We both have terribly tight shoulder and neck tension, sometimes I won't even get a headache, it'll just stay in my neck and shoulder/shoulder blades. I have no other neurological symptoms except occasional nausea. I have read so many times that since I just had that MRI done 7 months ago that it would very, very unlikely that there would be a tumor there now as these things take a long time to grow. I know that there are some tumors that grow very fast, but I would think that if that were my case, after 9 months of these headaches, I would be presenting with a lot more symptoms than just headache, wouldn't I? They aren't bad headaches and they respond well to aspirin. I'm wondering about that compressed nerve and that bone spur, coupled with horrific stress and hydrocodone addiction for 10 bone spurs in my lower spine. I have a headache right now, but it's sinus, I always know what they are. And it does help me to know that I had the MRI done at one of the best hospitals in America. I could deal with them easily if I could just get that brain tumor recording out of my mind. That's my biggest problem. My husband has had headaches now for almost a month, and not one time has he thought, "Oh my God, I have a brain tumor". I wish I could be like that. I also read about other people who have had daily headaches for years and years, but they get their tests done and they don't worry about tumors anymore. Sometimes I wonder where God is in all this hell that we've suddenly found ourselves in. We are suffering, and all because of his greedy ex-wife, who is living in the lap of luxury with not a care in this world, and laughing and making fun of us.
Enough rambling and sorry that I did. Could a compressed vertebrae with a bone spur be causing these headaches? When they first started, they started out in my neck anyway.
Ann, did you get your MRI report back yet? Be sure and let us know what it says, and good luck!!!!!!!!!
Love you all,
