neck pain. the pain starts on the back of my head and goes on down my neck and at times, it can get so bad, I would do anything to stop the pain?
for the past month I have had bad neck/head pain on right side of head, with the pain I have bad pressure by ear and head feels as though it is numb on the side with neck pain, I also see floaters, went to er for pain and they said muskoskeletal issues?? going to docs this thursday, with all this being said, my doctor put me on neurotin 100mg 3x/day... it has helped with wrist pain, joint pain, and elbow pain within 2 weeks, but it has just been the past couple of days that I have had relief in head/neck area, have been taking neurotin for aprox. 6 weeks now, also have found that when i cannot stand the pain/pressure anymore i take .5mg of ativan along w/800mg ibproufen, hope this helps
Have you ever seen a neurologist for your headaches and had an MRI of your cervical spine? You could possibly have occipital neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, or something going on with the discs in your neck that could also be causing your headaches. I've found for me, personally, that the BEST treatment for my (debilitating) "tension headaches" is a combination of pain medication and Ativan. The Ativan seems to be the most effective thing I've ever taken for my headaches, much better than the migraine medication I have (Imitrex).
