Forum Name: Headaches

Question: permanent headache


 Minimum - Sat Sep 01, 2007 1:38 pm

I'm 42, female, have suffered with permanent headaches - all day and all night - for over 20 years. I've tried acupuncture, reflexology, osteopathy, etc etc and all the pain killers you can imagine but nothing has helped. Over the past 3-4 years I have had occipital nerve blocks where the doctor freezes the area and injects it with a nerve blocking drug but these haven't helped either. Do you have any other suggestions? Nobody else in my family suffers from headaches of this nature as far as I know.

User avatar You have certainly covered all the bases. You didn't mention hypnosis or relaxation exercises, including yoga. There are times when these can help with chronic pain. I assume you have also worked through a pain clinic, where you see a specialist who works with people in pain such as yourself.

Good luK
