Mei Mei: I hope the nerve blocks help.
I personally haven't taken an aggressive medical approach to my headaches, I figured out long ago that the only thing that really works for me is to lie down in the dark, maybe take some plain Tylenol or Advil and just stay like that until it goes away,,,,,hence since having a family it hasn't always been possible and I run around with a massive headache most days. I am reluctant to take anything stronger, I can't be sedated all the time and I know over time I would just need stronger and stronger drugs (that's what happened to me pre-op and it was horrible being stoned all the time).
In the past I did try Inderal and Amitriptyline to prevent them but the side effects were intolerable. I also tried tradition migraine meds with limited effects. (Imitrex, Ergot preparations).
I have often wondered if acupuncture would help but haven't tried it.
Let us know how this new block procedure goes.
