term for idiot drivers that pass on a hill in a no passing zone) and also experienced neck damage, about five years of physical therapy helped a lot if you can find the right therapist, she came in with a large book, was able to determine the hard spots, looked in the book, climbed on top of me, and bend my body in strange ways, can't explain it, but I couldn't raise my right arm before, now I can. I find O2 the best way to tame these so-called trauma headaches, but have spoke to others with no relief from O2. My tramas were physically induced like raising my right arm pulling my neck ligaments that shot a lasting pain into my head or turning over in my sleep, a cluster type headache starts off with a stuffy nose. MRI's in the current technology are useless for soft tissue damage, 3rd generation machines are on there way, but no one has them yet, a dye that I can't ever remember the name of can be used, but most HMO's don't like the additional expense so I am told. I saw my MRI's, like looking a fog and wondered why I let them lock me up in that long tube for 90 minutes that seemed like an eternity. One treatment I read about, but got nowhere with was growth hormones, not the 4000 mg a day that the high school kids seem to get but a more conservative 1,000 mg a day, but this is not yet FDA nor AMA acceptable and can't find a doc willing to loose his license, maybe a trip to Mexico is in order,
You have to provide more detail on what conditions start your headaches, where the pain is at, do you have the stuffy nose kind of thing, but I can only relate experiences, I live near a large medical clinic with 350 doctors and requested to see many different doctors, almost impossible to find two doctors that can agree. My brother, son and daughter in-law are all MD's and find them helpful for information, I have almost a zero mind for medicine but excel in engineering, strange how the mind works.
