I have had symptoms of cs for 14 months now. Primarily headaches but more recently arm pain. I am trying to manage without medication which isn't always easy. I have noticed that my headaches, whilst always there, go though periods of better/worse phases. A bad phase typically lasting 2 weeks before going back to base level. At the moment I am also having left arm pain and hoping that to will go / reduce. I know everyone is different but wondering if anybody else also gets phases and how long they typically last. My hope is that I will get longer and longer in between them as I learn to manage the condition. Also, I currently have a goose pillow which seems to have helped a bit with the headaches. I tried cervical memory foam pillow but felt it put too much pressure on neck. What do you use? Any other advice for pain management? I have found light exercise to be good. I guess it's just keeping moving to keep muscles from getting too tight. I have a 3 year old so don't get to sit too much ha ha x
