Hi friends,

Yesterday i saw my neurologist, armed with all your info, i.e. suggestions (steroid, Baclofen, acupuncture, etc) and also this site. He was impressed & asked if he could keep the piece of paper it was all written on.
After telling him about waking up every single day since 29th december untill two days ago, thats 11 days in total, he suggested that he inject the base of my skull with 4mg steriod -in an attempt to break this cycle.
Apparantly it is a 'cluster'. I pray to god i never have one again! I feel very sorry for anyone who suffers from these type's of migraine's on a continual basis.
Anyway, the injection didnt hurt much at all & in 3 weeks am booked in to have another one.
I am feeling a lot more positive now, thanks to you guys!
Much much much appreciated xoxoxo

This technique sounds interesting. I don't think it's used in Europe and I've never heard of it from all the USA/Canadian posters here.
I once got a shot of steroids in my jaw because of an inflammation that could not be cured with any anti-inflammatory. It worked very well and the pain never came back. But migraine is not only an inflammation Crying or Very sad

I am so glad that we have been of some help but mostly that you have neurologist with an open mind. This is good to hear.
Did he inject anaesthetic with the steroid, like lidocaine or something similar? It is much more effective.
It is important to "hit" the right place so if you do not get relief this does not mean that it might not help next time. Did it help?

The injections here in UK are generally done only every few month (about 3 month is the general idea). Read more about it on the net under occipital nerve injections.
Keep in touch!
