... times a week, also severe musle tension, back pain, and body soreness?
I have fibromyalgia and chiari malformation 1(CM); evidently fibro and CM can both have similar symptoms and some have wondered if they're related. You might want to check about having fibro too, because of your description of your pain, it seems to me that it might be worth checking in to at least because fibro causes A LOT of all-over pain, but the pain with fibro also tends to move around a lot and that sometimes confuses doctors. I take Lyrica for the pain from the fibro but I have taken Elavil(amitriptyline) for the excruciating HA's which worked fine except it made me exhausted and sleep all the time (it took the HA's from being daily to being every couple of weeks when I took 25mg's then they upped the dose and the HA's got worse, don't know why though). I'm now in the process of switching from Elavil to Zoloft(sertraline) which so far has not helped at all with the HA's but has made me not sleep much at all. I think it all depends on the person. I have read that Zoloft can actually cause HA's so I'm not going to promote it unless it actually starts working for me. I hope this helps.
