For almost 21 years I have experienced excruciating pain on the right side of my head/neck. The pain actually goes from my ear, down my neck and to my shoulder but does not include my shoulder. I am currently on Flexeril (muscle relaxer), Flurbiprofen (generic Ansaid) and a blood pressure pill whose name escapes me at the moment. I am not sure how often I would experience the pain if I was not taking these three medications twice daily. I have been taking them for more than 10 years. I still have pain in my neck anywhere from 3-5 times a month that can land me in the ER. When I get the pain I am to take Treximet, I usually end up taking 2 before the pain subsides. I used to take Imitrex Ingectable but my doctor has me on the Treximet now. The pain becomes so severe that I am nauseous and I consider it a 12 on a pain scale of 1-10. I have no aura with this pain. The migraine meds do help which is why my doctor thinks it's a migraine. However, I can trigger an attack by having to look to the right for a long period of time (like at a movie sitting in a seat to the left of the screen and looking right) or by walking and looking around a lot (like shopping or going to a theme park). Although I have full range of motion in my neck - in other words it doesn't hurt just to simply look all around a room....only after I have been looking mostly to the right or continuously looking around and down etc. Then it will begin to hurt. I have taken drugs like Oxycodone and Hydracodone but they make me sick to my stomach. I also have pain on the left side of my face which I have thought to be sinus related but am now convinced it is migraine. I have no other sinus symptoms with the pain. So my question is about the pain I experience in my neck, have you ever heard of this and is it really migraine related? After 21 years I am at my wits end and having to be on muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatorys for all this time is making me concerned for my overall health.
