I am a pool junky. I feel free in it! Well almost. I have a constant grinding noise with movement that I don't push very hard. Just got my right shoulder to almost form a swim stroke. But walking in the pool has improved my balance. God bless

Thanks, I know what you mean. No, have not gone to pain specialist either. Not interested in opioids rather do a stretch or something. Guess courage is needed.

Thank you for your support. Yes is the short answer. Gratefully I have had the same doctors and pharmacists for many years. They all know my issues, besides been on meds for years too. But this too would be my response. Maybe the fact that the OA in my neck is severe is the cause of the headache. My primary wants me to see a neurologist. This concerns me as a nerve block scares me more.

So did you grow some courage? Curious how you deal now?

Thank you John. You always have positive feedback. This headache is one that has progressively gotten worse over the last couple of years. This year it has become a part of my life that has me missing out. The pain is so deep. The swollen eyes,facial pain, light and noise sensitivity and nausea keep me home. I guess it's just the next step. I have RA and OA. I already take Humira, Methotrexate, Folic Acid, Predisone and Gabapentine. My heating pad helps, wish it was more portable. Haha.

Hello fellow fighters! Been under the weather more than usual lately. These headaches I am afraid are winning away my social events and peace. Besides a nerve block, and warm compresses what are your ideas? Thank you for being here.
