I have had chronic migraine for 4 years and fibromyalgia for 3 years. I have tried numerous medications, Botox injections in the head and a 21 day course of Prednisone. All of these, especially Botox and Prednisone have alleviated the pain to some degree.

"Chronic migraines" seems a new term within medical arena. I encountered several women who informed me their doctors gave them this "diagnosis". They reported having headaches "every day". My exams discovered unilateral superior trapezius muscle spasms; often associated with large breasts, tilted head, & anterior sloped shoulders.

answered you question in a previous post.
Why are you resubmitting it again. I think it is time to see your neurologist and please do not shop for a diagnosis online, when your question has been answered.

In brief: Symptoms & treatment

From your symptoms and response to Botox/Prednisone, you may have nerve compression as the cause of your headaches (or at least some of them).
I'd recommend that you see a surgeon who specializes in surgical treatment of headache disorders to help you decide if surgery is a good option for you.

In brief: Look into food

sensitivity testing.
(Great Plains Laboratory in Kansas USA) has a good test. A natural product called Dipsacus is used to kill the spirochete associated w/chronic fatigue and Lyme. Peace and good health. Common triggers are wheat and dairy. See the book "Grain Brain."
