I have chronic pain in my shoulder, face, arm & neck caused by some minor anomalies in my spine and resulting in poor posture. It seems that the only trigger I can identify for migraine (apart from very hot weather) is a flare up in pain. My pain management consultant said this was quite possible, and I've read that there is a theory to support this (can't recall it at the moment as I am just coming out of an attack & head is very fuzzy).
Have embarked on a very necessary course of physio which has resulted in a flare up and a lovely day of migraine. There's no point avoiding physio because it has to be done. I'm expecting it will get easier as time goes on.
Just wondered if anyone else had a connection between pain & migraine? I don't think there is any simple solution, as with chronic pain it's about managing it the best you can, which in turn manages the migraine situation. Most of the time now the migraines are better, but I have had a blinder today.
I probably didn't need to ask this question, just needed to let off steam after a day of struggling on because I wasn't well enough to drive home, and had a few OK-ish spells in between taking medication that lulled me into thinking I wasn't that bad, until the next round of nausea / headache. I never learn.
