Forum Name: Spinal problems and back pain
Question: Neck pain/Headaches
|Illinois - Sat Sep 01, 2007 5:23 pm||
I am a 41 year old female. For over a month a month I have constant headaches/neck pain. Went to family prac. , put me on steroids and antibiotics. No results.
Had a brain MRI done, showed nothing abnormal. I also have a twitch sometimes in my left eye and by the end of the night I have to cover that eye because it feels so strained. My head and neck hurt non stop.
What other options do I have. Also have been on vicodin for past two years for lower back pain caused by a cracked disk and bulging disk.
Thank You for your time

I would recommend a consultation with a neurologist. Chronic problems as you describe can certainly interfere with daily life so if there is a solution to be had, this specialist should be able to find it.
