My daughter's headache
My daughter had occasional headaches that ultimately were relieved with nerve decompression surgery. She went through the typical protocol of medications, low tyramine diet, biofeedback and DHE therapy. All failed to help her. Thankfully we read about nerve decompression surgery and that was her answer.
Her diagnosis was migraine with/without aura. Somehow trigeminal neuralgia got in the way. It was awful to watch our vibrant 16 year old spend her junior year of high school in a daze from medications and resting on the sofa most of the time. We have a detailed story about this at mydaughtersheadache.blogspot.com.
The surgery brought her back to us! It is so confusing to us that the medical community in and around Chicago had little if any knowledge about this life changing procedure.
