    Post Concusion Migraines

    I have had multiple trauma to my head. Since the age of 9, I have had severe migraines. Years with Neurology, it has been diagnosed as Post Concusion Migraines. (I have had concusions).

    It feels as if the pain begins in my spine, travels up to the back of my neck to my brain stem. Then a horrible pressure builds in my ears, head. Meds have not worked. This can last days at a time. The only thing that may make it feel better is when the pressure causes my nose to bleed. Once my nose bleeds, the migraine will subside.

    Light, noise, movement, nausea, stiffness, halo's, at it's worse I have had visual disturbances.

    Is there anything that may help me? Neuro doesn't think so...

    Thanks.
