Hi, jaxs. I am so sorry to hear about your blinding headaches. Which doctor are you seeing? Do you have access to an urgent care clinic? You may be able to get some advice about your headaches sooner than next week.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

Hi Jaxs,

I too had also suffered from migraine headaches, 4 in one week, and was beside myself. I found that light was my biggest issue, coming from outside to inside was sure enough to trigger one.

They have disappeared for the moment, which I am so happy about :) .
You mentioned that you have a neck problem, maybe it is your neck and shoulders that are causing the problems ( I am not a doctor).

I had similar problems a few years ago, I worked then at a hospital as a clerk and the Physiotherapist there mentioned that maybe it was time I changed my pillow. Apparently there are alot of nerves that run from the shoulder to the neck area, if they are very tight this could be the cause of your headaches.

I hope you get some relief soon, good luck.

Best wishes
Celia
