I am a 77 yo female with cervicogenic headache. Neurosurgeon says a bone spur is irritating a major nerve coming from C2-3 in my neck. I have had neck pain and L sided headache for about 3 mos., partially relieved by Gabapentin 600 mg at bedtime and Ibuprofen 800 mg in the AM. It is exacerbated by picking up heavy objects and moving quickly. I have had one cortisone injection ( ineffective). Options are to have another injection or have the nerve severed which will end headache but result in numbness to the L side of my head. For now I am continuing with the medicines and put up with the headaches now and then. Good luck to all you cervicogenic headache sufferers!
