There is a world class Clinic in Ann Arbor, MI that is devoted to Head Pain. I have been going there for 2 1/2 years now. I did have Chronic Daily Head Pain, a migraine that lasted over 9 months. They have helped me get my life back!
Michigan Head Pain & Neurological Institute.
Contact them. They will help. Good Luck.

Do you think that maybe your headaches could be allery related? Do you have pressure/pain in your ears? Do your eyes feel dry and irritated? Try taking an over the counter Sinus med or Zyrtec-D and see if that helps...I had headaches for a while and they nearly made me sick...It turned out to be Sinus related.

The only other thing I can think of that you can try is to see a Chiropractor. If you haven't tried this yet, I think its worth doing. Everyone could use a few adjustments from time to time. I would recommend maybe 3 adjustments a week for the first week and two the next week. If it does not help, then you can atleast rule out a pinched nerve issue. Hope you feel better. If you have other health issues, I have to ask, you didn't by chance have to take steroids for pain or epidural shots did you? If so, let me know...If you have been diagnosed with having CFS or Fibro?

Thank you for your advice....I do see a chiropractor, physiotherapist, massage therapist...and I go to a pain clinic once a week. My other health issues are:...auto immune disease, fibro, CFS, DDD, pituitary brain tumor and an aneurysm. The doctors can not agree it the tumor is causing the pain or it is just bad migraines...and I worry about too much meds...no have never been on steroids...will never take them...I get nerve blocks in my head neck and shoulders...haven't had to do that for awhile but my doctor thinks it is time to start that course of treatment again to see if we can break the cycle...in the last 60 days I have had only 12 days without a headache...it is the waking up every morning to throbbing pain that I am getting sick of...and the not sleeping...I am on the edge!!!!!
