Head pressure

Apr 07, 2016 6:43 AM

I've had pressure feeling in the back of my head sometimes causing pressure with my eyes bothers my neck n shoulders like I'm carrying cinder blocks on my head it's been causing me to lose feeling in the left side of my body and it's serverly draining any suggestions because nothing's working I've had three mris and doctors just say it's chronic migraines but I think it's more than that

I suffer from chronic migraines as well as small fiber neuropathy. Your symptoms sound very similar to mine. I've been in a trial that has me taking a caffeine pill, aspirin and Tylenol for my migraines. It works quite well. I also take amitriptyline as a prevention. What next steps do your doctors have you doing?

AmItripline doesn't work for me they're just monitoring my migraine s feel like I need a second opinion cuz I feel there help isn't helping I'm always so drained no matter what they try to give me

Sam15, Is this your primary doc, or have you seen a neurologist? I'm sorry you're hurting so. I get migraines, and cervicogenic headaches that trigger migraines. Mine have been much improved since I received epidural steroid injections to block the nerve signals in my neck. I hope you will call your doc and let them know this isn't working. Maybe a second opinion is what you need. Hugs & prayers you get relief soon! 🙂💕🙏🌼

I went through 3 rounds of 3 injx a year, for two years before I got the full relief. I still get headaches, but they are no where near as severe as they were when I started the injx. I hope they can get yours to improve soon. It's awful when they seem out of control. Hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼
