This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
Elsewhere I have recently seen comments that head aches are not common in MS. I for one have regular headaches, they fluctuate and I put up with them, although I think they are most likely caused by MS..., or is it associated with CCSVI? As a non medical person I call them pressure head aches rather than stress or muscular strain of the neck or forehead or for that matter eye strain. Please add your experience with head pains.
i do not get headaches very much. but, i do get a very bad pain when sleeping that wakes me up at night. it starts at the base of my skull right near where i have my one and only lesion and radiates up the back of my head. this has persisted for a good many yrs. when this happens it seemed my other symptoms got worse. strangely after liberation that had subsided for a good while. i have had it happen 2 times since aug.3 and it was more intense. the one time i thought it might be the biggie. i am overall worse since liberation but for whatever reasons this pain did subside for the most part. time will tell i guess.
I have headaches very often and quite strong. It started I thing when I was about 6. Even my nausea. I was vomiting yesterday - I thing it is because of my relaps I'm having.
At least the pain behind my eyes is gone.
Aug. 7, 09 Doppler Ultras. in Poland, left Jugul. valve problem, RRMS since 1996, now SPMS, - Nov.3,09: one stent in the left jug. vein in Katowice, Poland, LDN, never on DMDs - Jan. 19, 11: control venography in Katowice - negative but I feel worse
Shortly before my first symptoms I had a headache that was worse than any other directly on the top of my head. From then until I had my first procedure I had headaches on and off. After my first op I realized that a pressure was gone that normally had been there.
Not sure but I thought I saw a post regarding spinal fluid pressure in MS
I had migraines for 10/15 yers then I had an attack got DXMS RR and never had another migraine 2 yrs ago
Although i took a tablet immigrain to treat migraine then I looked immigrain up and guess what it says can cause lesions !!!! upon speaking with the upright Doc he says their should be more control over pharmasutical companies with migraine tablets.
I've suffered migraines since my early 20's.....about 30 years....also tension headaches. They got worse over the years. I take imitrex (migraine headache is believed to be caused by a widening of the blood vessels in the head...Imitrex narrows thes vessels and relieves the symptoms of migriane headache) It works for my headaches but interestingly I've noticed weakness after using this medication. Thankfully the headaches have greatly reduced as has my use of Imitrex.
I have had migraines for years and also take imitrex. I actully cut them into thirds so am not taking a strong dose. I also get eye pain. I have been seeing an upper cervical chiro and the headaches seem less frequent.
