    I had to go give my deposition regarding my accident last week and the lawyer of the ins co kept asking me about each one of my symptoms. When he got to the headaches, he asked me when they started and how often I get them. When I told him it started the night of the accident 3yrs ago and haven't ever gone away, just gets less painful or extremely painful, he looked at me like I was the biggest lying nut that ever walked the earth. Then he asked me how is that even possible and what have the docs done about it.

    I didn't really know how it was possible. I assumed it was due to the pain levels and muscle spasms that I constantly have. Can anyone explain this to me?
    Thanks,
    Lanie

    Hi Lanie,
    I can't explain your headache ... but I can give that lawyer a good swift kick for ya!

    My partner is disabled with migraines, arthritis and diabetes and has a headache every day. It may vary in intensity ... some days can function fairly normally, but other days can't even move ... but it's there all the time. I also have migraines and am falling into a similar pattern. Anyway, Bev has been to pain clinics, headache "specialists", various neurologists, accupuncturists, and has had biofeedback -- nothing has made the headaches stop.

    This may sound like you're condemned to a life of pain & misery, but you might find a doctor who can determine the cause of your headache & control it. And it may take some doing. But talk to your doctor & tell him you need to have these headaches evaluated.

    besides the Fibromyalgia I was also diagnosed with reversal of the Cervical Spine. I assume that is why I have headaches, but I just don't know how I should have explained that to the man. It is what it is. Not much I can do about it or I would have done it. Oh well. I was just hoping someone could explain how what is wrong with me ends up with me having constant headaches.

    Jan~Sorry to hear about your partner. Thank you for your reply. Condemned is the perfect word to use. I am finally getting used to the idea that my life is no longer my own and I am condemned to deal with this forever.

    Devanier~Thank you for your reply. I am glad they found out what was wrong with you. I had to fight for 3 years for them to finally find what was wrong with me. This time I had a CLOSED MRI instead of an open one. It made a world of difference and I just wish I had the nerve to do the closed one the 1st time around. I dread getting into my car that day all the time. It is amazing what one moment in time will do to you.

    Thanks again,
    Lanie
