My migraine meds have stopped working so my migraine doctor is taking me off of nortriptyline, propranolol & maxalt. I will still take gabapentin & add the prozac & use the Sumavel pen as an abortative. He has prescribed dexamethasone for 12 days to help with headaches, as I am not allowed to take anymore nsaids.
Maybe you would benefit from chiro adjustments & message and the use of heat & ice. I have the same problem with my neck & I totally relate to that bone being in pain as well as the base of the skull. I rely on heat & ice, myself, but have done the chiro thing & it did help. Also, it is important to gently stretch your neck muscles several times a day-you can google for these exercises & you can do them anywhere.
I was using Nasonex for about 2 years for the sinuses then figured out it was causing more headaches. I quit using it & have been using the over the counter saline spray-Ayr. It has kept my sinuses at bay. I do have quite a bit of migraines that are more in line with menstration.View Thread
