I have just got back from my neurologist appointment and was told I have "coat hanger migraines" the pains across the shoulders up the neck and into the head are typical for this type of migraine. I have been told to stop drinking tea, coffee and fizzy drinks completely and stop all painkillers, he said after 6 weeks I should no longer need painkillers. I'm to go back for a scan next month as a precaution He also told me that caffeine counter reacts to painkillers. He said that they will get worse before they get better so here goes. No more cuppas for me and I will keep you updated
