Kathryn’s migraines are likely cervicogenic in origin

Feb 09th, 2017

Hi, I am a chronic migraine sufferer and I also have severe fibromyalgia.
Iv been getting this horrendous pain in the base of my head/neck on my left
side it radiates over my whole head and into my eyes.  I have problems with
my back and neck alot but these recent pains are scaring me.
Can you give me some advice please?
Thanks

The Guru Responded:

Hi Kathryn

 

They sound very much like cervicogenic headaches (headaches related to your neck!) in fact 70% of migraines are cervicogenic in origin – so it sounds as if you’ve got a predictable pattern, especially with your other back and neck problems.

 

The biggest cause of neck related head pain is posture – slouching and poking your chin out will make you worse and having good control controlled “normal” posture is a winner.

 

You need to therefore get your mid back moving, #worldsgreateststretch plus sit up well when at work  and don’t allow your chin to poke forwards for long periods during the day.

 

Exercise is key – the more you do, the better you’ll feel and it can be as simple as going for a walk or an easy gym program – just make sure you lift your chest, drop your shoulders and tuck your chin in a little.

 

Have a go for the next week or so and see how you go.
