I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with Cervical Spondylosis. Involving C5 & C6 and a recent MRI has revealed it's now in C4. For those who don't know it's basically arthritis in the top of the spine. Whereas the last 8 years I've hardly had any pain, the last 2 years it is now constant down the right side of my neck. Unfortunately I am also a migraine sufferer, so sometimes my migraines are caused by the CS and sometimes other reasons, which after 40 years, I still don't know.
The GPs are not interested and after my last MRI a month or so ago they just said there is nothing they can do, so basically, go away.
I'm now going through my 11 headcahe/migraine in 16 days and I'm at my wits end. I take an eletriptan for my migraines but I am limited to the amount of tablets I can take, 10 a month. So I'm already over that and there is another 2 weeks to go.
Does anyone else suffer from this combined problem and what do you do?? I was thinking of using my TENS machine for my head because I used to use it for the CS, although we moved 9 months ago and I've lost it!!!
Any help/advice will be gratefully received.
