Title: Headaches with no help
Post by: ritasewell on February 02, 2014, 11:49:23 am
My husband is 53 and suffers daily from migraines. He is not able to work. He is in bed all the time. The only thing that helps in pain shots and that just allows him to sleep. He tried to work some until he started passing out with no warning about one month ago. He has tried all preventative and rescue meds. He has had surgery to clip the occipital nerve and Botox. The dr thinks it is Occipital Neuralgia. Absolutely nothing has helped except for about one month after the surgery he had no pain but then it started again. We are at our and and do not know where to turn.

I am hoping your husband is doing better.  I have suffered headaches and migraines all of my life.  they resolved after my surgery but then I needed Gamma Knife treatment and they have returned 10 months after the radiation.  My heart goes out to your husband, daily headaches/migraines must be horrible. here's hope that we find a way to treat our pain.

Search the Forum for posts by Capt Deb related to headaches.  I think you'll find them very helpful.

Deb has had a long history of AN headaches and has gone through numerous "fixes".  If I remember correctly, she finally found something to help.  Unfortunately, I don't recall what it was.

Hope your husband finds relief soon.

Best,

Jan

Hi,
Hope that your husband feels much better.
I decided to share my experience, maybe it will work too for somebody.
My father suffered from everyday headaches and no treatment didn`t help, the dr concluded different diagnosis, but no one suited.
Then we tried non-traditional treatment such as acupuncture. It has taken few months, but the result was really fantastic and father`s headaches passed.
Maybe, it will be helpful for somebody.
