Back pain and migraines

I've had two surgeries already and getting my fusion in two weeks I've been getting a lot of migraines lately. Anyone else have this? They're crippling. I have extreme nausea with it and I lay in bed for hours
Left side MicroD l5-s1 2/7/13. Re herniated immediately
Revision bilateral MicroD and posterior lumbar decompression 9/9/13. Failed. L5-S1 fusion on 3/6/14.

    between migraines and headaches you can get from spinal problems.
    Any headache when you are already not feeling that great can be monumental. I would contact your PCP to see if there is anything they can suggest to reduce some of your migraines.

  • I actually get less migraines nowadays. I think because I always have painkillers and NSAIDs in my system.

    When I do get a migraine I find taking 3 regular strength aspirins at the first sign helps. It is hard on the stomach but I don't have to do it very often. Of course, this may not be a good idea with whatever meds you take so speak to your pharmacist or doctor first. I also draw the blinds, wear a travel mask and lie in the dark. That helps too.
