Chronic daily headache for 22 years
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have a constant headache going from ear to ear over the top of my head. I have had an MRI, seen chiropractors, taken countless medications, had craniosacral therapy, had acupuncture, and had four rounds of Botox injections. The headache started when I was 14, and I haven’t been headache-free since then. The Botox and acupuncture helped (especially the acupuncture, but only when the needles were physically in my head), but neither of them gave any lasting relief. Typically I push through and it doesn’t affect my daily life, but it’s always there in the back of my mind. When I have flare-ups, I need to cancel plans or call in sick to work.
