C_F I wish I had a cure but there are days I over medicate and just sleep. I know how much I can take or should I say how much my body can take and still not die, I find Xanax works best if I want to stay awake with the rice sock a BC powder taken with water If I catch it soon enough but sometimes its just drugs and sleep. I wonder the nerves in our neck that cause the headaches cant they clip em when they do the surgeries? I know it is probley a dumb question but I would rather do numb that these headaches.
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

I do not always recognize the start of a cervical headache so when the headache becomes full force it is to late to get the full effect of the medication.

The home treatment I use is a herbal heat pack per the microwave, tens unit, massage chair with no vibration, (vibration sends me into a migraine every time) and medication which is a last resort in most cases.

In related news, I saw the surgeon today for the right arm & hand/shoulder. I though I was having shoulder pain but it was confirmed to be related to the neck, a nerve conduction test was recommended. I did learn that an elbow joint replacement is in my future. I did not know there was such a thing!

I wear dark sunglasses whenever I am outside.
Ice on the back of my neck, and lie down when they start, sometimes helps them from getting out of hand

Having a headach like that is a horrible pain.

Hell all I have to do is turn my head at times and they are in full force, so trying to stop them before they happen to start is out of the question.
