Hi All, a little background here...when I started going through menopause back in 2001 (I was 47) I started having migraine headaches and my dr. thought they were due to the fluctuating estrogen. So, I started on hormone replacement for that plus the hourly hot flashes that were driving me mad, etc. I also had a prescription for Maxalt to help with the headaches. Okay, everything was managable. But in the past year or so I have had longer bouts with the headaches--like 2 or 3 days. But, still, managable. Now, I have been dealing with a headache since last Wednesday. I also have some herniated disks in my neck and I am wondering if the headaches are from that--the headache seems to be centered in my neck though it spreads all the way to my temples. Mostly it is one-sided like in a migraine and also the only medication that helps is my Maxalt. But you aren't supposed to be taking that every day and also you only get 10 of them in a prescription. Also, the headache is coming back after the Maxalt wears off. I have an appointment. this afternoon with my doctor but wondered if anyone here has had any experience similar to this or any suggestions? I am so tired of this headache!!!! Jane P.S. My youngest dtr gets what I would call "true" migraines--with the aura, throwing up, etc. This is nothing like that, I feel kind of bad even calling it a migraine when I know how awful those can be.
