Hi, i had retro surgery for my AN about a year ago and for like 7-8 months now i have daily headaches. I still dont know if the headaches are from my AN because they seem to start in the back of my head on the AN side (sometimes they start on the opposite side. Sometimes they just start in the forehead area (so random)
But the pain is not that severe when it stays in the back of the head. The most severe pain is when the pain spreads (migrates) to the front of my head, my head hurts right in my forehead. (that pain is a killer)
So if my headaches are from the occipital nerve damage from the surgery, shouldn't the pain stay in the back of the head on the surgery side?
The surgeon told me that if it was pain from the occipital nerve damage the pain would stay in the back of the head and neck.
Did any of you that knew that their headaches were caused by their occipital nerve have head aches in the forehead area? or did they only have them in the back of the head on the AN side?
My incision was a small one 3 - 4 cm. And he only used some fat and earwax to cover the hole... So no Mesh or metal etc.
If i chill and do nothing the pain is not bad. But if i try to work out, jog even bend over the pain becomes unbearable.
So maybe it's my bed
I guess i want to know what causes my headaches. The doctors are not paying attention so i thought i'll ask here
Any advice, pointers from ppl who had these problems fixed would be great.
Sry for my rants and my english
