Migraine and neck hell

Sep 27, 2016 4:36 PM

Hi everyone. I only got this app today. I am looking into fibromyalgia for myself. I have looked at extensive checklists and I can tick most of the symptoms for most of my daily life for past 10 or more year with list increasing.
I am currently sat working a nightshift with a horrendous migraine since Sunday. No relief and struggling.

Am so sorry gamma. I deal with frequent migraines. Have found the app migraine buddy to be a huge help in not only tracking my migraines but in helping me identify triggers.

I hope you are able to find answers as to your pain ..

(((gentle hugs)))

I am fairly new here as well. One thing I learned is this is a wonderful group of people to share with, learn from and even share a laugh or two. Welcome to the group.

Oh - do you see someone for your migraines? Taking anything? I have found that as far as over the counter meds - Excedrin Migraine helps. I also have prescription meds and nausea meds for when that doesn't help. (Maxalt)

Hi guys thank you. Yes iv tried many many things for them. Sometime I get relief sometimes just have to wait it out.
I won't bore you all with my many complaints that have just yet. But looking into fibromyalgia as reassured me I'm not crazy, attention seeking or a hyperchondriac Haha. As everyday feel aweful and stupid complaining to people the many various different pains I have all over at any one time.
Yes just downloaded migraine buddy today too.

Welcome to our community family gemmamoansalot! I'm sorry you're suffering migraines. I get them too, sometimes triggered by cervicogenic headaches (cervical spine issues). I take Midrin at the first sign the get quiet and still, trying to relax. It usually prevents a full blown one. In 2012-2014 I had epidural steroid injx (ESI's) for constant chronic headaches (several kind triggered in the spine). Now my headaches are rare, only a couple migraines a year. And since my ACDF in August of C3-C4 my cervicogenic headaches are rare too, only 4 since August, instead of daily. Hugs love and prayers you find helpful coping methods! 🙂💕🙏🌸

Sorry you're suffering. You're definitely not a hypochondriac despite how others including docs may make you feel. Have you by any chance researched lupus as well? Lupus is more in the joints, skin organs including brain where as fibro is in the muscles and doesn't affect organs. I don't know where your pain is but just a thought. I battle lupus.
