: : Hi, there....just finished reading the messages on chronic tension headaches. It was kinda depressing. I have always had headaches, but, right now I am in agony. I am relatively young (27). On August 29, I got this REALLY bad headache, and it won't go away. It is so bad, that I am getting to the point that I wish I didn't have to wake up each day, because I am so sick of being in constant pain. I have tried a lot of things. I visit my chiropractor twice a week (I began this this summer, and thought I had found the cure to keeping my headaches under control...until I got this headache!)I have tried professional massage. I have tried different drugs: Lortab, Soma, Hydrocodone, Hydrocodone w/Acetiminophen, Spray & Stretch, Ultrasound, Ultrasound w/ flexerill, muscle stretches, moist heat, sitting in my hot tub, hot showers, even aromatherapy and beaded bracelets to prevent pain. I can get no relief!!! My quality of life is horrible. I can't concentrate on school, can't make myself do homework, don't want to work, and find myself yelling at my kids for nothing. I wouldn't want to be around me. The headache basically starts in the neck area, spreading up into the scalp and down into the shoulder and arm area, and occasional nausea. I don't know what else to do. Have an appointment with a neurologist in 2 weeks, but if I have to live like this for 2 more weeks, I don't know if I will make it. Help, anyone? please email me if you know of ANYTHING that could bring relief: [email protected]
: : Thanks!

: If you are having that much pain call the neurologist office and tell them what is going on and ask that something be done to get you in sooner. If they refuse to do anything see your regular MD and get some help till your neurology appointment. This sounds like much more than common tension headaches to me.

I know how hard it is to be in constant pain. It does make you very irritable! Try and find a good
neurologist and just remember you're not going
