My friend has had migraine like pain in the lower back of his head. The pain has been there for more then 3 weeks and pain medicines are not helping.

Break the cycle: Daily pain can result in a phenomenon called wind up; the nerves in the brain become over-active with the result of sustaining the pain. To stop it, you must break the pain cycle. Have your friend's doctor administer a shot (toridol works well), then go home and sleep. Upon waking, listen to a mediation tape with headphones for 30 minutes twice a day (you can find one on the internet). ...Read more
