Hello @mamouson and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. How long have you been living with your pain and have you been diagnosed with a nerve condition/issue? What are you doing to deal with your pain?

Hello @amandajro in 2019 I was diagnosed with a pseudo tumor that had formed around a failed hip implant, causing metallosis. The surgeon replaced the metal implant with a nonmetal component, and removed most of the large pseudo tumor. The tumor may have impacted the femoral nerve which causes the pain and neuropathy in my legs. They aren’t really sure.

I have had migraines since I was 8 years old. The hormonal ones were the worst and I have tried every treatment imaginable. I’m older now and don’t have the classic migraine with the hammer inside your head and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. However, it feels like my head is in a vice-grip, 90% of the time. Has anyone experienced this and, if so, did you ever find a solution?
Thank you
