I just need tolerable pain to be happy anything bellow a 5 I would feel very blessed with. Parenting like this is very challenging. I am glad to know I am not alone. Any suggestions for the never ending headaches.

Elo, welcome to the group. Have you gone to a neurologist or an orthopedist to see if there is a problem with your spine? Do you have any specific diagnosis for your pain? I hope and pray that you get the answers that you seek and the support you need here with our group. There is always someone here for you to listen, bounce ideas off of or to support you when you are in a bad way. I wish the very best for you and hope that this post was even just a little helpful. Good Luck. 💕

Elo, welcome. I suffered from daily headaches badly until I started seeing a pain specialist. Starting in 2012 he did ESIs (epidural steroid injections) at the cervical, lumbar and thoracic discs, separately & in series of three for each area. I had very good improvement until January. I need more because the headaches have returned, but thankfully not daily; averaging 2-3 every 12 days. I can't get more injx (injections) right now because I have to go to Mayo about undiagnosed tremors, dizziness & imbalance.

Have you kept a journal to see when they start, what you were doing of eating, just to see if there are common triggers? I hope you find a way to reduce then soon. I'll be praying for you! 🙏🌼
