a head injury, you can develop a headache that resembles a migraine ... smaller and put more pressure on the system, develop high blood pressure.

Holy crap, you could of just copied and pasted that description straight out of my brain (the first two kinds). Thanks for finding, and to have an explanation of it. Anyone here have any meds that actually stopped this happening? Mine is under control at moment unless I have to use mental excertion then comes on with vengence.

Trigiminal Autonomic headaches by far have to be the worst....imagine a wisdom tooth, sinus pain, a red hot poker in your eye and conjunctive effects.....they call it the suicide headache.....from personal experience I can understand why!!!Posted Image

It's a good thing to know about headaches and migraines as I get them a lot! I was hit (when I was a child) by a speeding car and I ended up crashing back first into a stone wall and yes I can still walk.

Accupunture doesn't help when your spine have an injury though.

Yeah I have a constant cap headache which has lessened a bit but always there...till the rest kick in. I have a further 3 types of migrain... from different area's of the neck sparking off different migrains and also the brain itself.. It can bowl me over in a flash instant. Nearly knocking me out. I get a reaction from the eye and internally back to the back of brain it's dam awful, but the internal brain clashing when the brain is trying to source a memory or such is absolutely overwhelming. Brain CRASHING more like it.. a bulldozer thing with TWO demolition balls swinging sideways inside the back and mid of brain... Fatigue is huge, it has improved ALOT but I'm still not as mobile or mentally mobile as I used to be. SLOW and bad balance issues. That dam ringing in the ears is constant and worse when the body and head is zapped out.

Has anyone ever felt like your brain is falling out your skull when lying down on your back... uewww dam horrible feeling that aye!!! I used to have fits and still have brain fades but not as often thank goodness! Still get dizzy thou and a bit nausated. A long time to have issues aye but then I wouldn't know what improvements I could have expected due to no care and assistance, treatment or rehab! grrrr all thanks to ACC denying the Specialist/s report.

Goddam, hate to say it but I'm glad I'm not the only one with these damn Headaches. I have been having these since an accident in 2011. Not long compared to some of you guys but it seems like forever. Have tried all the pills I'm ever gonna take, so I just try to ride them out. The fatigue is probably the worst thing which makes me dizzy and disorientated.Haven't received any rehab or anything else come to think of it.(LongStory) Employer+Insurance Company = Deny it happened.I think the ones behind the eyeballs get me the most although the all day ones are right up there.Haven't found anything that alleviates these so any ideas anybody?????

I found Metoprolo to be effictive. They don't take away most of the headaches or migrains, but I find I have less auras, and weaker migrains.

Still searching for better solutions with my GP and Neruologist

I too for years have had daily migraine type headaches come on despite pills.

What I have noticed is if I have a hang over (not often!) the day of hang over i don't get any migraines? Does alcohol settle blood vessels or something, anyone else had this?

My headaches come on with thinking.

I was told that pain from thinking can be a good sign due to the brain healing itself, [once thought it couldn't]from
the overloading of some connection as the brain tries to resend the information on another set of connections.
There is a drug like 'speed' which speeds up the response time so they both arrive [one via the damaged connection]at about the same time via a different and normally longer route.
It was described a bit like a fuse wire overloading trying to complete its normal and then additional functions.
The spellings are not correct but have heard of the terms like Cognitive Disorganisation or another Damaged Dopameric Pathways or similar.
I suggest you Google them and find out if these terms might help your understanding why a pain could be happening.
No doubt an expert will correct the spelling and give other views.
