Yes, the cervical spine carries the nerves into your head.Damage to your cervical spine also can cause inflammation and muscle spasms in the neck and shoulders, which can cause tightening of the muscles of the neck and shoulder and nerves around the head. This can cause a headache from the back of the head all the way to the forehead. It can also be called muscle tension headaches. It is best treated with muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories. Also, you could have migraines from the damage, which is another ball of wax.
Yes without a doubt the herniation's and bulging discs that I have cause the headaches that I have. I never had migraines but since my car accident I have had the worst headaches just miserable. I really hope you do not have them like this I would not anyone to have such pain.
Yes, if you've got even tightness in your neck or shoulders, that can greatly exacerbate severe migraines. I get nerve block and trigger point injections which have helped the migraines. Also physical therapy can help on a daily basis to relieve some of the pain. And even Botox has also helped me. Of course you should also try a daily preventative migraine medication too. Good luck.
