I have daily headaches that last all day long. I've been treated for TMJ, migraines, eyesight, etc. I've had MRIs and CT scans, but nothing has helped. I'm afraid it may be atypical trigeminal neuralgia due to my symptoms being so close to those of TMJ. The headaches intensify when sitting but posture exercises haven't helped either. What should I do now? I'm desperate for relief at this point. I haven't been headache free for over a year.
Headaches are pretty much a way of life for me. I do have tmj as well as fibro. Lately, I've been taking 2 500mg tylenol with an antihistamine. I end up taking 8 tylenol a day, but this isn't doing the trick too well. I took fiorcet for many years, but it stopped working. This summer I tried topomax which is supposed to be great for headaches. This was one of the worst drugs I ever took and going off it was pure hell. Apparently, it worked for others, but not for me. So I haven't any advice to give you. Sorry.
