I did the usual - went to the dentist, doctor who wanted me to do an MRI - which I did schedule - but then I spoke with a co-worker who told me that she was having the same problems as I was and that it turned out her Vit D levels were very low. So, I called my Dr again and since they had taken blood to check my thyroid and asked them to also do a Vit D check. I ended up canceling the MRI when my thyroid showed non-existent hormones and my Vit D level was coming up at around a 6. (Not good I guess)
Then I found a Chiropractor who loved working with people with headaches and Fibromyalgia. Now 4 years later the worst of the headaches are gone. I've had 1 migraine in the last year. I'm still having issues with the stabbing pain that hits on various parts of my head - right above my ears or on the top back portion of my skull. According to the chiropractor the pains are a form of migraines so we are still working on those and just relieving the pain and tension in my neck & shoulders.
Today I came across a video of a doctor who works a lot with trigger point therapy. It explained some about what causes headaches although I would of liked to have seen more.
I was really hoping to learn more about my type of headache and I ended up emailing him to see if he had worked with my type of headaches before. I'd really like to know more behind what causes them and exactly what is going on (I'm a research/information junkie!) Hopefully I will hear from him soon.
