Forum Name: Headaches

Question: HEADACHE, NECK, UPPER BACK (SHOULDERS) PAIN


 VAGUS - Mon Sep 19, 2005 6:24 pm

I'm new to this site, so please bare with me...About 2 months ago (Mid July 2005) I’ve had a bicycle accident and hit the electricity post with my head. Everyone thinks it's funny but that how it all started. At the time I refused to see a doctor or go to the hospital because I thought it was nothing and endured the pain with left black eye for 2 weeks. I'm very actively fit so I still continue to exercise everyday (running, biking, walking, boxing, yoga and more). Then my family and I got invited to go to Six Flags. And of course knowing myself, I had to have fun and experience some rides. We did Pandemonium which I thought was weak and Twister was fantastic but then after the ride I wasn’t feeling well and felt nauseated. So needless to say, we had to stop and went home. A week later …

No need to reply...I went to my doctor 2 days ago and she gave me some muscle relaxation medicine and steroids. I don't have the headache anymore. Cyclobenzaprine (Muscle relaxation) seems to work on me. The steroids I haven't taken yet and I really don't want to.
For now I'm on one medication and I'm fine with it.
