Sorry I've been posting a lot lately, but I've got a lot going on recently. Started out early this morning(about 4:30 am) with what I thought might be a sinus headache. Nope, apparently that's not it. It's definetly a migraine, but the weird thing is, it feels like it's coming from my neck already(C4-5 possibly). Nauseous as hell, but minimal pain(between a 3-4). Just can't make heads or tails of it already. Going to try another hot bath, take an Advil PM and hopefully sleep tonight. Oh and it feels like my neck is stuck in one position. No fever, just weird.
Amanda, I am so sorry, I hate migraines that won't go away! I once had one that lasted 12 day's! If it stays around much longer I would go to the er and get looked at and see if they can do something. They usually have a cocktail mix they put together to try and help to get rid of it. Praying for you!
Amanda I am sorry that you are having to deal with this new problem. Since it is coming from your neck try a hot pack. When I have my headaches and they are in the back of my head I use a rice pack heat I up and it seems to help with the moist heat. Sending prayers and hugs.
Thanks Weezie, will give that a go. Hopefully, I can break the cycle today. Have an appointment on Wednesday with PCP and will definetly bring this up. This is not really usual for me to have 3 back to back days of headache/neck pain. If that doesn't work, I'll have pain management check it on Thursday. Signing off for now. Peace, love and light.
Amanda, this doesn't sound like Migraine but rather tension headache or cervicogenic headache. Migraine typically is one-sided, pulsatile, goes along with aversion to light and sound and nausea. It builds up over time and lasts up to three days. Sometimes vision is disturbed and tingling can be felt ("aura"). It's good you're going for an physical examination. Sometimes in chronic headaches become medication-induced and continues because of medication. Then you need a withdrawal. Pain in the neck can be due to muscle spasm/tension, facet joints or the intervertebral disc. Signs for a herniated disc are numbness, weakness in the arm and radiation of pain into the arm. The course of the pain over the days should make a discrimination possible. Good luck with your doctor!
