    I am limited in my choices right now for pain relief. I see a neurologist for the headaches. The doctor thinks that the headaches are either cervicogenic headaches or occipital neuralgia. Or it could be other things, who knows? I want to know but the diagnostic tool is the lidocaine/cortisteroid injection and I cant have it due to being allergic to the cortisteroids. I don't know what other things there might be but we will find out soon I guess since I have an MRI scheduled on Wednesday.
    My pain is almost constant in the back of my head and my neck at the base of my skull. It starts there and wraps around to the front of my face. I had headaches for years while I dealt with the pain in my neck but nothing like this. Before I started all of the meds, physical therapy, diet changes, I had the horrible headaches for a month straight morning, noon and night. I would lay in bed crying and begging God to take away the pain so I could sleep. I was taking painkillers like candy and it did nothing. I am now banned from taking over the counter unless its with the emergency migraine meds I have been prescribed
