Re: Headache relief when lying face down (head to side)? CSF-Blood patch.
I suffer from Severe Migraines. I am 18 and have been having them since i was about 10. The only relief i have is laying face down, with my head to the right side... (i always get my migraines on the left side of my head, going down into my neck, and eventually down into my shoulder blades and back).I feel so much better laying with my head to the right, becuase it puts pressure on the side i have the headache on, and i never found out why that is. I need to be in the complete darkness and have no sound at all so i can fall asleep. Sleep is my only cure. I have had tests beyond tests and MRI's and tried different medications such as replax, skelaxin, imetrex, topamax, and so many more. All of which were different methods from at home shots, pills, to nasal spray. Nothing works besides laying on my side and being able to fall asleep. I can elborate when you say laying on your side helps, i'm sure this is not the only option, but it sounds like you get the same ole great Severe Migraines like myself....from what it sounds like to me...i have the same feelings as yourself. Hope this helps!
