Hi everyone! I was diagnosed with CS approximately two years ago. At the time, I didn't take it too seriously. As time as gone on, the symptoms have gotten worse, mainly the headaches. I wake up every single night within a couple of hours usually with a headache that will pound if I don't get up and take a BC powder. My GYN doctor said these are really bad for my stomach, but this is the only thing I can take that will get rid of the headache. Triptans work, but you are not supposed to take these but two or three times a week and I need something literally every single night, and sometimes during the day. I have to work and cannot take strong pain meds, nor do I really want to because of my mom years ago having an addiction to prescription pain killers. I am just wondering if this is a typical symptom of CS with most people? I also have a great deal of neck pain. I sit in front of a computer all day long, which I am sure doesn't help. I bought a TENS machine yesterday. It helped a little, but today my neck is hurting a great deal.
