I had an translab AN surgery two years ago, and since this day I have daily headaches.
The pain starts the morning about 20 min after I get up, sometimes I wake up with. The pain never comes back after 6PM.
The only thing I can do to stop it is to lie down, and it disappear automaticaly after 10 minutes, but reappears about 20 min later when i get up again.
If i don't lie down, the pain is getting worse and worse until i vomit. (I usually try to avoid this
I've experienced many remedies, and the only one that helps a bit is acupuncture, with acupuncture I had my first week without pain.
Today I can't take any painkiller, since i weakened my stomach with by taking them every day.
I dropped out of school because of that, people and even my family don't understand why i keep lying down in my bed all day. For them I'm suffering of a kind of depression.
I'm fighting against pain every time i do some physical activity, i realized that sudden motion of my neck automaticaly occurs pain.
Has anyone of you got rid of chronic headaches ?
Today I'm 20 years old, and I just wanted to know if one day I could have a normal life again.
